Summer is slowly trying to slip away.  And then…we have a week like this one, where the temperatures are back in the 90s (sometimes I wish I lived somewhere where there is an actual fall season)!  So, in honor of summer weather making an appearance in October, I whipped up a batch of cookies reminiscent of my favorite summer treat!

Caramel S'more Cookie Cups at foodieanonymous.com S’mores are the ultimate summer food.  Some of my favorite childhood memories are of sitting in front of a campfire during a summer lake trip, making s’mores with my best friend.  These caramel s’more cookie cups use ground graham crackers to give the cookie that classic flavor.  And, a rolo candy cooked right into the middle gives it a delicious carmel-y twist!

And for those of you not lucky enough to live in the sauna that is Los Angeles, caramel s’more cookie cups do not require a summer campfire.  Rather, you can whip up a batch and enjoy them right out of the oven!
