I think you all know about my obsession with cookies of all kinds. With these, personally I would make chewy sugar cookies from scratch but you don’t even have to do that! All I can say is that they fit the summer theme like a baseball in a soft, leathered glove, or a heaping cup of rainbow-sprinkled cookie dough ice cream within the palm of my hand. Just like that.

I can’t begin to describe having had the first full week of summer vacation under our belts, because A. none of us wears a belt although we probably should and, B. it hasn’t even been a full week! It’s only been three days! We got a shaved ice vs snow-cone machine. That was fun. And juggling work with kids at home, is like juggling humidity with thick hair. Somehow it all works out, and is only slightly a voluminous mess of tall proportions. We’ve had incredible adventures and one adventure so good I’ll need a whole post to tell you about it.

Campfire Cookies


  1. 1 pkg. Sugar Cookies

  4. 1 pkg. Whoppers Candy
  5. 1 pkg. Tootsie Rolls
  6. 1 pkg. Mini Pretzel Sticks
  7. Mini Marshmallows
  8. Green Food Coloring
  9. Lighter (optional)


  • 1. Mix green food coloring into the white frosting and frost the cookies.
  • 2. Using a sharp knife, cut knife marks lengthwise into the tootsie rolls so they resemble logs.
  • 3. Cut the gummy bears into 3 pieces and dice the whoppers into small pieces.
  • 4. Sprinkle some whopper pieces onto the middle of the cookies.
  • 5. Take 3 tootsie rolls and lay around the whopper pieces in the shape of a triangle.
  • 6. Place some of the gummy bear pieces inside the triangle of tootsie rolls to resemble fire flames.
  • 7. Poke a pretzel stick into a marshmallow but not through it. It will look like a roasting marshmallow on a stick. Repeat this for as many as you need.
  • 8. Place 3 of the marshmallow sticks on each cookie in a pyramid shape over the campfire, making sure the marshmallow touch at the top.
  • 9. An optional step: Take a lighter and run it over the marshmallows to give them a toasted look.

I’ve read that the best defense against having your car stolen is if it has a STICK SHIFT! When I was in high school, one of my friends got a job working the garbage truck. We were all jealous 🙂
