I spent most of last week in New York for a family wedding and had a chance to take a few small food adventures which I'll post about this week. First, I had to share the Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip cookie {dark chocolate gooey goodness} from Levain Bakery on the Upper West Side and the Compost cookie {pretzels, potato chips, coffee, oats, butterscotch, chocolate chips} from Momofuku Milk Bar in the East Village...yum!

The other day I found myself with bars of Michael Mischer salted chocolate, some Mari's New York mini orange-flavored marshmallow, and some plain ole' graham crackers. They looked at me with longing eyes, and I knew some s'mores had to be made. The old-fashioned fireside treat that everyone knows and loves turned into a tiny and fancy rendition as salted dark chocolate mingled with orange marshmallows for a sweet, salty, slightly citrus, rich, gooey, crispy, melty, and chewy treat. Good doesn't even describe it!
