Today while I was working in my pajamas until 3, I decided it was time for a sugar and tea party for one to energize me. Except I was out of tea so it was just a sugar party. Luckily, must husband left for work a few moments before or I'd have to share.
On the menu at this party for one was the edible cure for raging PMS, the kind of PMS that lasts for 3 weeks and makes you wonder if you are dying or pregnant even though you know neither is the answer~ Marshmallows dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with graham cracker crumbs. You have to make these with Jet Puffed marshmallows, Honey Made Grahams, and real chocolate, not that fake, flavorless chocolate shit that comes in discs and is sold in craft stores. I used the Trader Joe's chocolate chips. While you are home alone, toss two BIG handfuls of chocolate chips in a glass bowl and microwave in 15 second intervals until they are melted. Stir them each time the microwave stops. Dip your marshmallows in then set on a plate to cool. Lick the chocolate off your fingers then grab your box of graham crackers and a ziplock bag. Put 2 crackers in the bag, seal the bag, and get your aggressions out. Make crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs on the chocolaty marshmallows while the chocolate is still melty. That's it! I eat them while they are still warm and gooey but you can pop them in the fridge and wait until the chocolate gets firm. Even though this is super easy and there are only a few steps, you will end up covered in chocolate. Toss your pajamas in the laundry before anyone finds the evidence.
I wish I could say I ate only four.

Note: You will need more than 2 handfuls of chocolate chips and more than 2 graham crackers if your PMS is really bad and you want to make more than 8 marshmallows.
