If you are singing in glorified notes with large wide eyes at the thought of finding out just how much of all of those ingredients there are in this recipe, then come along for this decadent ride.

Many have divulged that, while they don’t want to be prejudge against other cookie types, this particular cookie has been their favourite, don’t tell the s’mores.  It’s salty, sweet, crunchy and chewy at the same time, it’s really just so simple and so perfect.  Maybe even add a little pepper if you want to go bizerk! The richness is sublime, the salt cuts through the fat and sugar, and a triangle of sexy repeats with every bite.
