S'More Cookie Cups

S'mores like you haven't had before
Summer would not be complete without the awesomeness of bonfire s'mores. Gooey and chocolaty. For sure, one of the best summertime treats. 

Today's recipe is not your classic chocolate and toasted marshmallows squooshed between two crispy graham crackers. 
Oh no. 
It's that... And a lot more.
The same sticky marshmallow. The same melted chocolate, but creamier and richer. The same graham-crackers, but crumbled and sprinkled in chewy cookie dough. 
All of it packaged in a mess-free, travel-friendly cookie cup.

Ready to dive into the heart of summer entertaining with these scrumptious Italian antipasti next to an easy-to-enjoy glass of rose' wine?!?
I am so ready!
Maybe it's just my love of summer and constant craving for vacation but rose' wine makes me dream of breezy summer nights and al fresco dining. It screams of spectacular pink sunsets, and exotic food savored while sitting on an Italian terrazza overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Ahhh... sounds amazing, right?!
Today I'll show you how you can recreate a plateful of mouthwatering Italian appetizers that perfectly pairs with this fruity and fresh glass of rose' wine, to enjoy anywhere you happen to be.
All you'll have to do next is pop open a bottle of rose', pick up a skewer, close your eyes, let your taste buds go wild while savoring the flavors... and start daydreaming :)

Hmm... Because I really couldn't make up my mind, today I used both in this delicate and healthy upside-down cake. 
Take a look!
