Today is National S'mores Day. For national S'mores Day why not host a S'mores party with a S' mores bar. Our Raspberry Nutella and Chocolate S'more is so delicious and simple to make. Add it to the bar along with other toppings for your guests to choose from.

Nutella S'mores Recipe

  • Original marshmallows

  • Homemade or the best raspberry jam

  • Hersey's chocolate bars

  • Nutella hazelnut spread

  • Graham crackers

First, toast your marshmallow to the perfect melting point. See our directions here: The Perfect toasted marshmallow. Next spread Nutella, and raspberry jam on a square of graham cracker. Next place chocolate square on the top. Finally, add the perfectly warm toasted marshmallow. Top with a second square of graham cracker and press together. Enjoy!

Sweet Tip:

Be sure to have your cracker ready for the marshmallow so you can place the marshmallow on top while it is still hot so your chocolate will melt for the perfect S'mores.

Hot Dog Toppings Bar For Dinner or a Party

This post is sponsored by Hebrew Nationalยฎ

Are you planning a springtime BBQ celebration get-together? I have the best quick but still delicious and quality grilled dinner idea for you, your friends and your family. It's a Hot Dog Toppings dinner party. It is seriously the easiest to plan and make. It's also a HUGE crowd pleaser. The kids, as well as the adults, will love it.

I put together a list of premium toppings I thought would cover everyone's tastes to go with Hebrew Nationalยฎ All-Beef Franks. One of the things I love about Hebrew Nationalยฎ All-Beef Franks is that the hot dogs are good premium cuts of 100% kosher beef. Quality is always something I look for when planning dinner.

For our Hot Dog Bar, I added fresh ingredients. I made sure to chop the pieces smaller than I usually do so they could fit nicely on the bun. I bought freshly made buns from a local bakery and chose some tasty toppings, including onions, avocado, tomato, peppers, sauerkraut, a spicy green sprout mix, a variety of mustards and, of course, some ketchup. You can pretty much add any that you love. Think of your favorite salad-bar toppings if you are looking for some inspiration. With the kids, you can tell them to choose three toppings so they are sure to get some veggies in their meal. My family loves it and it's definitely on our list of things to make when friends come over. Happy spring!

  • 2 Large Haas Avocados

  • 1/2 sour cream

  • 1 lime

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper

  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


In a small mixing bowl add all ingredients squeezing in the juice of the lime. Smash together with a fork. Top with a light sprinkling of red pepper for garnish. 

Serve with tortilla chips, veggies or potato chips. Enjoy!

Note: The lime keeps the avocado from turning brown. I left mine out for a good hour to test it and it works quite nicely.
