I have a confession. I’m a s’more-aholic. When I see my favorite bloggers post their version of a delicious recipe involving chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows, it’s almost a guaranteed instant pin. So after a few months, er, maybe years?, of collecting and trying out some of the most delicious eye candy on the web, I’d like to share some of my favorites with you.
These S’more Mini Dippers from Kevin & Amanda are an instant party hit—and so easy to make! Just whip them up, then leave them by your coffee station for some dipping and sipping!
Every girl knows there’s nothing better than the perfect sweet and salty combo. Solution: Pretzel S’more Bites from The Novice Chef.
I made these S’more Brownies from The Bakerella for a book club night (the book, The Interestings, was all about a group of friends who met at summer camp, so S’mores seemed like the natural fit for dessert). Hot out of the oven there were requests for seconds… and thirds… and absolutely no leftovers.
My other weakness: Red Velvet. Combine it with S’mores and you’ve got one great, over-the-top treat. Try these Gooey Red Velvet S’mores Bars from Sugarcrafter.
And last, but certainly not least, Jessica over at How Sweet It Is nails it with all of her recipes and these No Bake S’mores Cheesecakes are no exception. Seriously, try them.

Happy National Peach Ice Cream Day! It’s summer, and there’s no better time to enjoy a nice juicy peach than right now. So stock up! This recipe ensures those peaches won’t go to waste.
5 Tips for Making Homemade Ice Cream:
1. To decrease prep time, store the bowl of your ice cream maker in the freezer, wrapped tightly in a plastic bag.
2. Add mix-ins, such as nuts and chocolate chips, for only the last minute of churning.
3. To ensure proper aeration, only fill the ice cream maker three-quarters of the way.
4. Make sure the ice cream “batter” or custard is cool before putting it into the machine.
5. To prevent ice crystals from forming in the freezer, place a piece of plastic wrap on the top surface and press down.
