Campfire Story

Back when my parents were managing the cottages my sister, Matt and I headed up to Huntington Lake. We were sitting around the campfire making some of the most amazing shut-em-ups I'd ever had. There was a crazy family with 4 boys and cool glowsticks. Val had her special someone...
Mom had her special someone...Here I am with my special someone...

sort of? haha. I missed having Luke to share the sugar rush.

hi jessica! just popping by to say hi...and answer your question. i have heard you can cut fabric on the cricut, but i am not too sure about felt. i think that felt is too thick and wiley and would jam up the cutting blade...

Shut-em-ups are this:
You put the "mallow" on the roasting stick, then you put a chewy caramel on the roasting stick. Then you roast them slowly so the caramel doesnt cook faster than the time it takes to make the mallow melty all the way through. Then when its perfect you pull the "mallow" over the carmel and pull them the rest of the way off together. Pop the whole thing in you mouth and you cant say a word once you do. They "shut you up" My most favorite rendition is to put a rock inside the fire pit, set a grahm on the rock and my chocolate on the gram. Theyre so close to the fire the chocolate gets all melty. But the chocolate holds its shape it doesnt pool up. Then Ive got my caramel filled mallow in between two grams with the most melty chocolate its to die for.
