Rainbow S’moreo Cookies

Rainbow S'moreo Cookies | Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck Survive Despite a Whiskered Accomplice

Rainbow sprinkles invariably make everything taste better. Although marshmallow creme sandwiched between two homemade graham cracker laced Oreos would also taste pretty FRIGGING amazing without any addition of extra sugary rainbows. However, you’d have to be an absolute crazy person to give up sprinkles on purpose. There would have to be something really FRIGGING wrong with your demented self. I feel as if I should be getting my mouth washed out with soap right about now for using the word FRIGGING, not once, not twice, but three times. It was not on my Mom’s list of almost-approved almost-swearwords. I was that child that didn’t dare actually swear, but was always willing to push the boundaries with almost-swears. After having a bar of soap shoved into my mouth for accidentally letting a really bad word slip out, I tended to have an even bigger attraction to the word itself. Sometimes no other word will do. Perhaps that’s why I have such a potty-mouth now; I’m just making up for lost time and finally practicing to become overly fluent in real swearwords.

I grew up in a household where cursing was just as colorful as the rainbow sprinkles adorning these perfect summer cookies. I can honestly say that I have never heard my Dad say a bad word. Instead he uses odd little sayings that let you know to keep away, or go hide in fear for your life until his mood changes for the better. One such saying is, “Oh me, oh my,” which lets you know something is very wrong, and chances are you will be the one taking the blame for it. However, the real phrase you need to keep an ear peeled out for around my Dad is, “Blame it all anyway.” Those few words were perhaps the scariest words on the face of the universe for my brother and I. They meant we were in for the scolding of our lives, and perhaps a sore tushy before everything was said and done. Thankfully I haven’t had to hear either of those phrases in quite some time, but it doesn’t mean I’m still not going to go hide somewhere in a closet if I should happen to hear them uttered. Hopefully I have a few Rainbow S’moreo Cookies with me, to tide me over until it’s FRIGGING safe for me and my tushy to come out again.

    I smiled at this post. I grew up in a very similar household. My dad controlled his tongue until his later years, but my mama… she still spells curse words if she needs to add it to a quote. These cookies look amazing! Your nail polish is just as festive as the sprinkles 😉
