People joke that Southerners sit around their trailers barefoot, sippin' on RC Colas and munchin' Moon Pies. And while I did spend my first few years in a trailer, I always wore shoes and wasn't a fan of RC Cola. I did, however, love chocolate Moon Pies in my pre-vegan days ... especially heated in the microwave for a few seconds.
I also loved smores. Something about a gooey campfire-roasted marshmallow smeared between a crunchy graham cracker and a melty chunk of Hershey's chocolate still makes my mouth water. So imagine my excitement when I heard about Sweet & Sara's vegan smore pies!
They're like a cross between a smore (with the fluffy vegan marshmallow layer, the chocolate shell, and the graham cookie), but they look and taste a lot like classic Moon Pies.
My dad threw one in my recent Vegan Essentials order, and though I intended to eat only half at a time (lest I get fat!), I couldn't stop at half. Microwaved for 15 seconds (would be less in a normal microwave ... mine sucks), the chocolate layer got just melty enough to require a fork and the marshmallow layer went all soft and gooey. How could I not eat it all in one setting?
