joy sticks

Each year our parish holds a pre-Christmas sale on the weekend before Thanksgiving. This year they offered religious items from The Paraclete, handmade items from Ten Thousand Villages, tins of flavored popcorn from the Boy Scouts, fundraising coupon books from Bruster's and jars of salsa with our pastor's cartoon image on them among other things. As in past years, I made a beeline for the baked goods table in the center of the room.

Last year I wrote about the chocolate covered marshmallows that had the misfortune of resembling a certain "South Park" character. Kathy, the woman who made them, was amused by the attention her creation received here on the blog. This year she and her family set out to make something else that would be blogworthy. Kathy's daughter Karie thought it would be good to try S'mores on a Stick. It was a great idea. Three marshmallows on a lollipop stick, enrobed in chocolate and rolled in graham cracker crumbs. Perhaps she was thinking about the s'mores-related posts I wrote in May and in March. Meanwhile Kathy's husband Keith knows that I often write about my ongoing efforts to maintain my weight by controlling portion sizes. He came up with the brilliant idea for "diet" S'mores on a Stick. Or actually on a pick. The bite-size confections are made with three miniature marshmallows on a toothpick.
