What do you mean that’s not what he said? While I’m letting your obvious lack of knowledge regarding Dickens’ revised classics slide, when LC Foods said they had a Granola/Cookie Bites mix and a marshmallow fluff mix they wanted me to try, it made sense (to my brain) to combine efforts into a fun, campy (nyuck nyuck) idea that combines the fanfare of the favorite dessert, S’mores, and low carb, sugar free, gluten free lifestyles.
Is this the epitome of a mixed bag when it comes to desserts? Absolutely. I don’t usually use a lot of mixes to prepare a dish. At the same time, why not shoot for ease on occasion when you don’t have time for a more ambitious dessert?
If you don’t have the LC-Cookie mix, go ahead and shoot for a nut crust. If you want to make your own chocolate custard, do it. The marshmallow fluff here is the real showstopper, so give it a shot!
This dessert is gluten free and sugar free, so enjoy!
