I have been keeping an eye out to see if they were shipping nationally yet - no such luck (crossing fingers and toes it will be one day soon). So, what prompted this s'more kick tonight, you might ask? I read about a company who offers these desserts table side and luck be a lady...this chain had an Orange County location. The restaurant I am referring to is Cosi. The restaurant is a cross between Corner Bakery and Panera. The food was good - and you should check to see if they have a location near you for a light, romantic dinner. But, lets get back to the dessert! So, they have this cute s'more set for 2 - it comes with the wooden platter, miniature hibachi and bamboo skewers plus chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers.
I think any outdoor wedding would be the perfect setting for a s'more dessert station and, apparently, I am not alone! Here is an adorable s'more set up from Eat Drink Pretty
Digging a little deeper into this topic...you are not going to believe what I found. I hit the s'more jackpot! Are you ready...s'more cakelettes! Mini s'more cakes!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE mini cakes...and a s'more mini cake...it's true and I am in l-o-v-e. Desserts For Breakfast shared the recipe (which will yield 3 mini cakelettes). I would eat that for breakfast!
I almost need to take a little break after seeing that. I wanted to do mini cakes at my wedding and I love that these are actually coming into a little world of their own now. Weddings are about two individuals joining together as one so, there is something about single serving dishes joining the main dish, that seems symbolic to me. So, let's come full circle with what attracted me tonight: the s'more set for two. The key is how to cook the marshmallows when you don't have a roaring campfire. In the gift set from Cosi the focal point is the hibachi burner. So, imagine this...each table has it's own hibachi burner (1 - 3 per table) and then you have a s'mores spread table with all kinds of goodies: graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate, oreo cookies, Peanut butter, Bananas, Strawberries, Peanut butter cups, Dark chocolate, White Chocolate, Nutella, Caramel topping - and really anything else you can think of! They grab their goodies and head back to their table to start roasting their marshmallows and making their own s'mores! I love this! So, where to find these hibachi burners you might ask? Done.
I am an absolute FAN over this idea - what about you? I hope you are because guess what? I am going to give away a s'more gift set for 2 - maybe you and your sweetie can share a little dessert one night and discuss having a s'more dessert station for your wedding! What do you think? I will be announcing the giveaway a little later today! I hope you all love this as much as I do!
