We are quickly approaching the last few glorious weeks of summer. Guys, it’s August! Where in the hell did the time go? It feels like just yesterday Lindsay and I were doing cartwheels because we finished our last day of school for the semester. (Figurative cartwheels. Because we are lazy) I did not do half of the fun things that I told myself I would do this summer. And let’s not even get into the fact that it is August and my skin is still practically see through. Seriously, I am the tannest at this moment than I have been all summer and I still look like I’ve been trapped in a window-less dungeon for months. But that is an issue for another time. #Pale
One thing that I regret most about this summer is not eating nearly as many s’mores as I should have. I can count on one hand the number of s’mores I have had this summer. One hand! That is less than 5 s’mores! (In case you were unfamiliar with the anatomy of a human hand.) What a travesty! I don’t even have an excuse or an explanation. If you are shaking your head in disappointment right now then don’t bother. The disappointment you feel for me isn’t anywhere near the disappointment I feel for myself. I’ll just go H.A.M with the s’more eating these last few weeks to make up for it. IT’S FINE.
This rant is all leading up to part II of our doughnut series. Lindsay and I asked ourselves a very important life question a few weeks ago. Probably the most important question in the history of questions. “What delicious things can we stuff inside of a doughnut?” Immediately we thought of s’mores. Because, S’mores. Doughnuts and s’mores? How can you go wrong? You can’t. The answer is you can’t. S’more doughnut sandwiches for the win! We used cinnamon sugar doughnuts for our sandwiches, but you can use any kind of doughnut your little heart desires. Get creative and try a bunch of different doughnuts! Or get really adventurous and make your own doughnuts. (Recipe coming soon!)
These are very simple to assemble. Just get your doughnut of choice and slice it in half. We used day old doughnuts because they are a little firmer and easier to work with, but you could absolutely use fresh ones. Then just layer on the s’more-y goodness! We added a layer of marshmallow fluff for a little bit of extra melty goodness, but that is optional. Then we added marshmallows, chocolate and crushed graham crackers. After everything was added we placed them open faced in the convection oven for about a minute so that everything got toasted and melty. Then just close the sandwich and enjoy! These are best enjoyed immediately when they are still warm.
