I love everything about Summer! From the heat to the beach, the magical Sunsets and late nights, the warm Sunrises and crisp Texas watering holes. Summer is my absolute favorite season. One of the things that comes to mind when I think about this toasty season is S’mores! My kids love this tasty summer treat, and we make them as often as we can during the summer months. For this week’s bake I’m baking cookies inspired by this classic summer snack. Below is the recipe for my easy S’mores Cookies along with my Tips, Tricks, And Don’ts that I did.


  1. 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  2. ½ teaspoon of baking powder
  3. ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  4. 1 teaspoon of corn starch
  5. 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
  6. 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) of unsalted butter (room temperature)
  7. ¾ cup of light brown sugar
  8. 1 egg
  9. 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  10. ¼ teaspoon of salt
  11. 1 cup of mini marshmallows (chopped)
  12. 1 bar Hershey’s Chocolate (chopped)
  13. 4 Graham crackers (chopped)


  1. Roughly chop the Graham crackers, Hershey’s bar, and the mini marshmallows.
  2. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and corn starch in a bowl then whisk together and set aside.
  3. Using a stand or hand mixer, beat butter and sugars in a bowl until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add in egg and vanilla until combined.
  4. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating on low speed until just combined.
  5. Fold the chocolate chips, chopped marshmallows, Hershey’s bar, and graham crackers into the dough, making sure to mix thoroughly.
  6. Refrigerate dough for at least an hour.
  7. Heat oven to 350F. Portion out about two tablespoons sized pieces of dough. Roll into balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  8. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes or until cookies are toasty brown.
  9. Cool and Enjoy!

Tips, Tricks, and Don’ts That I Did

  1. Make sure to chop or tear your marshmallows into tiny bits. Marshmallows puff up and spread when heated. If they are too big, they will create a giant sticky mess of a cookie.
  2. Don’t skimp on refrigerating the dough. Cold dough makes soft cookies.
  3. I had a few different kinds of chocolate chips in my pantry and used a little bit of each. Feel free to choose your own chocolate for this cookie. I bet dark chocolate S’mores Cookies would be heavenly!
  4. For a little toastier flavor, top warm cookies with marshmallow bits and heat with a blowtorch.
  5. These cookies are best enjoyed warm. You can reheat them in the microwave for 5 seconds to get the marshmallows back to their former gooey glory.

Easy No-Bake Cheesecake with Rice Krispies Treats Crumbles

Easy No-Bake Cheesecake
Easy No-Bake Cheesecake

One of my all-time favorite summer treats is cheesecake! Especially a cool, creamy and easy no-bake cheesecake with Rice Krispies Treats Crumbles! I first made this recipe as a full cheesecake with a Rice Krispies crust but decided to make it kid friendly by filling mason jars with the cheesecake and using the Rice Krispies Treats crumbles for some added crunch. Below is my recipe for an easy no-bake cheesecake your family and friends will love!

Cheesecake Ingredients 

  1. 2 cups of cold heavy whipping cream
  2. 3 (8- ounce) packages cream cheese, room temperature
  3. 1 cup of powdered sugar
  4. 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

Rice Krispies Treats Crumbles Ingredients 

  1. 3 cups of Rice Krispies cereal
  2. 2 cups of mini marshmallows
  3. 2 tablespoons of butter

Directions for Rice Krispies Treats Crumbles

  1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. 
  2. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. 
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Add KELLOGG’S RICE KRISPIES cereal. Stir until well coated.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour Rice Krispies mixture onto baking sheet.
  6. Add another sheet of parchment paper on top and roll with a roll pin until your Rice Krispies are flat.
  7. Pull or cut small pieces of the Rice Krispies and roll into small balls. (You can also use cookie cutters to shape them into fun shapes for the toppings)
  8. Put to the side

Directions for the Cheesecake

  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the heavy cream on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Remove the whipped cream from the mixing bowl and set aside.
  2. In the same mixing bowl, replace the whisk attachment with the paddle attachment. Mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract together on medium speed for 2 minutes, or until smooth and creamy, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed.
  3. Remove the bowl from the mixer and using a rubber spatula, fold in the whipped cream evenly, making sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl completely.
  4. Add cheesecake to 8 small 8 oz mason jars
  5. Cover and chill for 4 hours or overnight.
  6. Remove from refrigerator and top with Rice Krispies Treats crumbles

Tips, Tricks, and Don’ts That I did

  1. Put your bowl and whisk attachment into the freezer for 30+ minutes before making your whipped cream. This little trick helps make the creamiest whipped cream you’ll ever eat.
  2. Another tip to ensure the creamiest whipped cream, make sure your heavy cream is very cold.
  3. Take the cream cheese out of the refrigerator a few hours before you’re ready to start your cheesecake. It needs to be room temperature for this cheesecake to work.
  4. Don’t forget to be very gentle when folding the whipped cream into the whipped cream cheese. This will ensure the cheesecake keeps its light fluffy texture.
  5. You can make recipe as a full cheesecake instead of the smaller portions. Just double the recipe for the Rice Krispies and use a 9-inch round pan for the crust. Pack the bottom of the pan with the Rice Krispies and top with the cheesecake mixture, cover and chill overnight.
  6. If you’re unsure where to buy mason jars; Target has a ton of options! I picked these super cute ones up last week. https://www.target.com/p/ball-8oz-4pk-aqua-vintage-regular-mouth-jars/-/A-54314698#lnk=sametab

Easy Oreo Dirt Cake with Gummy Worms

Dirt Cake

Summer! Finally! I know I’m not the only one who feels like this school year has lasted a bazillion years… I had one kid at school in person (the youngest) and one kid who did the entire year virtually (the oldest, 12 going on 50). I asked my 12-year-old how he felt on the last day of school and he said “tired” (I’m with ya kid!) It’s been a long year for everyone, so I decided to throw a quick party for the neighborhood kids to celebrate the end of the school year and kick off the summer.

I headed to Target to grab some party supplies and found some super cute treat cups. Next, I spotted gluten-free Oreos and knew what I had to make. DIRT CAKE! My kids LOVE my homemade whipped cream, so dirt cake was the PERFECT treat to whip together. Below you’ll find my recipe for a summer party favorite along with my Tips, Tricks, and Don’ts that I did! Enjoy!


  1. 2 boxes of chocolate pudding
  2. 1 package of (family size) Oreos
  3. 1 bag of Gummy Worms
  4. Homemade Whipped Cream
  5. 12 individual Treat Cups, Bowls or Tupperware

Ingredients for Whipped Cream

  1. 2 cups of heavy cream
  2. 2 teaspoons of powdered sugar
  3. 2 tablespoons of vanilla

Directions for Pudding and Oreos

  1. Make the pudding according to the directions on the box. Let it chill for at least 1 hour.
  2. Smash the heck out of the Oreos. Add several Oreos to a freezer bag and pound with a hammer or meat tenderizer until crumbled.

Directions for Whipped Cream

  1. Add the heavy cream and vanilla into cold bowl.
  2. Beat for 2 minutes until thick.
  3. Add the powdered sugar.
  4. Beat until fluffy peaks form (about 5 minutes).

Putting It All Together

  1. Cover the bottom of the treat cup with the crushed Oreos (about 2 crushed cookies).
  2. Add 1/4 cup of pudding.
  3. Dollop 2 tablespoons of whipped cream.
  4. Sprinkle with more Oreos.
  5. Add 4 gummy worms (more or less depending on how much you like gummy worms).
  6. Repeat steps 1-5 for the remaining 11 cups.

Tips, Tricks, and Don’ts That I Did

  1. Freeze the bowl and beaters you’re using to make the whipped cream for at least an hour. It’s a little thing that makes a BIG difference. You’ll end up with a much fluffier cream using the cold bowl and beaters.
  2. Double up your freezer bags when crushing the Oreos. My freezer bag tore and I ended up with cookies all over the place. Doubling the bags will help catch wild Oreos if the first bag tears.
  3. Let the kids help! This is a fun activity everyone will have enjoy making!
  4. Refrigerate the finished treats for at least 30 minutes before eating.
  5. As always, don’t forget to ENJOY!
