Campfire Cookies

Start with this:
Then in a bowl mix these:
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
Cream together butter and sugar until incorporated
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
Beat thoroughly

2 cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips, or one giant Hershey's bar, chopped
1 cup mini marshmallows
Stir to incorporate
The most fun part about these cookies is that you actually bake the cookie on top of a whole graham cracker.

Bake at F350°, for no more than 11 minutes (after 11 minutes, the graham cracker will burn).
Some of the marshmallow may toast off the cracker, but simply remove the cracker from your cookie sheet and quickly transfer to a wire rack.
Yields 4 dozen

Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate Mousse
1 large pckg chocolate pudding
(use jello brand, it just works better)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 c water

1 C whipping cream, whipped (can use cool whip or pastry pride)

Combine pudding, condensed milk and water in a mixing bowl. Wisk until smooth. Let set in fridge for 5 minutes. Whip cream with an electric mixer. Fold whipped cream into pudding mixture. It's ready!

The possibilities are endless. It can be piped (via ziploc bag) into cups, on top of cupcakes, etc. Great party dessert in clear plastic cups with a cake ball and some whipped cream...
