Truly Unique: Camp Fire Cookies

I LOVE Pinterest.  I mean LOVE, LOVE Pinterest, however I find that it actually doesn't help creativity, because I usually just end up copying everyone else!  With this in mind, I decided to come up with a TRULY UNIQUE dessert creation!  

I am totally looking forward to this fall, and camping with my to-be hubby (he kills all the spiders!)  Sitting by a camp fire, making smores is probably one of my favorite things to do in the cooler months.

In honor of this time of year (and my new love of everything Pumpkin Spice!), I created:






Bill of Materials:

Freshly Baked Sugar Cookies
Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses
Small Stick Pretzels
A bit of patience!


First, begin by making round sugar cookies.  You can make these from scratch or use a package. (I won't tell!!)


While your cookies are baking, break a third off of a hand full of pretzels.  You will need 6 "thirds" and 3 - 4 "two thirds" for each cookie.  




Next, unwrap the Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses (and eat a couple too!)  You will need 1 Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kiss for each cookie.




When the cookies come out of the oven, let them sit for barely a minute (they need to be soft for construction!)  Place the 6 "thirds" in a star shape in the middle of the cookie.  This is your "kindling".  



Once the pretzels are on the cookie, place a Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kiss on top of the kindling.  It will probably melt a little bit due to the cookies being warm.  If it needs a bit of help, place the cookies back in the oven for a minute.  



Then, place 3 - 4 "two thirds" pretzels in a triangle shape over the "fire".  



CAMP FIRE COOKIES!



If you are daring, place semi-sweet chocolate ships in a circle around the "camp fire" to make a "fire pit"!
