Not only is it super easy, but it’s inexpensive and really tasty as well.
Being that I lived in Texas & Louisiana for University, I learned a lot about Soul Food Recipes & Southern food in general. This is a real All-American dish, not just because it’s bread pudding, but because Smores is a very Americana type of dessert made at bonfires across the World now!
You will find this an easy recipe to duplicate and you’ll impress the kids, as well as the adults that are young at heart.
