Ahhh Moonpies. Do you remember them? Of course you do! I remember the chocolate and the yellow (banana?). I also remember not liking them all that much.
My mom, well my mom LOVES moonpies. Almost as much as those weird red peanut cluster things.
I saw that you could make your OWN Moonpies a few months ago on Pinterest. As soon as I saw that I knew exactly what I was going to do.
Make them for my mom.
So this past week I did just that.
I found a few recipes on Pinterest but, decided to go with this one. It was very easy to make and I did it over two days. That was probably the best decision I made. I made the cookies on one day then the marshmallow the next. I also covered them with chocolate the same day I made the marshmallow cream.
In the recipe I used she does a double-decker. I decided to go with just a single sandwich cookie and am glad I did. These are SO rich, I can't imagine them being double-decker.
I did add a second layer of chocolate then smoothed it over the edges. You will want a tall glass of cold milk with you when you eat these. They are SO good.
Let me know if you make them and what you think.
