My youngest son has two loves for dessert: Oreos and s'mores. On a camping trip, with plenty of time to think about s'mores, it was logical for him to come up with s'mOreos. To make one, you open an Oreo and set it to one side (preferably where it won't get stolen by a sibling). Then you toast a marshmallow in the regulation way (more or less charred, depending on your ability). Sandwich the toasted marshmallow in the Oreo cookies, being careful to not break the cookies; if you are clever, you can get two s'mOreos out of one marshmallow when the outer layer slips off the inner core. Eat. They are very sweet, but quite tasty, and there is no melted chocolate to make a mess.
