Mini Smores Pies (14)

Chai has been getting into everything at my folks’ house and is terrorizing all the cranky, old cats who live here. She’s so busy! She’s driving her mommy crazy! So, needless to say, I desperately needed chocolate. Using chocolate ganache got me the meltiness I was looking for without the fire. And who doesn’t love marshmallow fluff? It’s fluff! Topping with a whole tiny smore makes the mini pies even more adorable. Everyone knows that mini = cute.

Anyway, wish me luck integrating my kitty/sous into our new household. And enjoy these quick, easy treats until next I see you!
