Whatever they are called, they sound delish!

Saratoga Mama contributor Amy has a little recipe to share with us! S'mores are great in the summer and even a late summer like we appear to be having. But soon it will get cold, and those campfires nights will be a distant memory. That's okay- you can make S'Morkies!

Chocolate Cake S’mores Cookies

1 box devil’s food cake mix

2 eggs

1/4 Cup brown sugar

1/2 Cup melted butter (1 stick)

3 Hershey’s Chocolate bars, cut into rectangles

1 1/2 Cups mini marshmallows

1 1/2 Cups graham crackers, cut up into small pieces

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl mix the cake mix, eggs, brown sugar and butter until combined. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet. Press cookies into little discs to flatten slightly. On each cookie press a chocolate bar, a couple marshmallows and a couple graham cracker pieces. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until cooked through.

2. Remove and let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Serve with milk and enjoy!

about 3 dozen cookies

From one of our SaratogaMama's doing a little "Back to Fall" shopping for HERSELF!

Okay Ladies, so I know as a mom we like to be in comfy clothes, a la Gap or Old Navy or really step it up and hit Banana Republic, but you should really check out Aggie's on Broadway for some super fun, comfy new fall clothes.

I happened to stop by the other day in search of a dress for the 3 weddings I need to attend this fall. I found one and I found sweaters, jeans, leggings, even undies! I just cleaned out my closets and the last time I bought something for myself, it was a Nursing shirt, so I figured why not pick up some classics that I can have for a really long time.

I opted for 2 sweaters with short sleeves so I wouldn't get too much baby food on them and a great pair of cargo leggings. I got to the register and cringed at the total but then I said " Do you take Saratoga Mama?" Beth, the manager at the store said yes! I was the first person to ask in the 2 years that she has had it!

I was the first person to ask in the 2 years that she has accepted it! I saved 10% on my total and felt a little better about my purchase. So, get out there and shop ladies, and don't forget to ask if someone takes the SM Token, your wallet will thank you!
