S’mores made with chocolate-glazed donuts!
My birthday was last week. For the last four or five years, I’ve developed a ritual of sorts for my birthday.
I get up first thing in the morning and go to the gym for a workout, usually legs. I have no idea why I do a morning workout and a leg day on my birthday because I dislike both of those things. Regardless, it’s what I wake up and do on my bday. In a twisted way, this morning leg workout feels like I’m treating myself.
Next up, I get a massage. I spend the week leading up to my birthday beating the crap out of myself a little extra at the gym. It’s all the more rewarding to get the massage. I follow that up with a pedicure, and some shopping.
Somewhere in there, we have a party or celebration with friends. I prefer not to focus on it though because birthdays generate awkward attention and I always feel stressed that everybody needs to have fun! This year we went a little unconventional and had a nice long dinner with plenty of drinks before going to see Trainwreck. That is apparently what birthdays in my 30s look like: dinner and a movie.
One last thing we squeeze in: s’mores. A person wants to be spoiled with all of their favorite things on their birthday, right? For me this includes s’mores!
Taking my two traditional birthday treats and putting them together – what could be better than combining s’mores and donuts??? I was really excited when I thought of this idea because I thought it was original. It definitely isn’t and has been done before. But here is one more recipe for the world’s most delicious s’mores: Chocolate Donut S’mores.
- 1 dozen mini chocolate-glazed donuts, sliced horizontally
- 12 large marshmallows, toasted
- Place a toasted marshmallow on one half of the donut, and top with the other half. That's it. :)
Speaking of birthdays, yesterday was my Gma’s 90th! More to come on that.
