Dr. Seuss's Schlopp With a Cherry on Top
It's schloppy, it's gloppy, it's yogurty parfait fun! So why not make Schloppy seconds for everyone?!?
½ cup homemade granola (or use store bought to save time!)
1 ripe banana
4 oz. plain or berry flavored yogurt
1 maraschino cherry
Cut the banana in half and peel it. Cut each half lengthwise to make 4 long slices. If desired, heat in a frying pan or microwave.
Put ¼ cup of granola in a bowl, top with half the yogurt, and add the banana slices. Add another ¼ cup of granola and the remaining yogurt and top with a cherry.
Dr. Seuss's Sneetch Treats
This roasty and toasty marshmallow treat is a scrumptious snack that Sneetches (and kids!) both love to eat!
8 oz. butter, melted
1½ cups brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
3½ cups uncooked, 1-minute oatmeal
½ cup chopped walnuts
1 cup golden raisins
2 chocolate bars, broken into squares
6 large marshmallows
Wooden skewers soaked in water or BBQ forks
Preheat oven to 350°
Combine melted butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla in a bowl. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to the butter mixture.
Add the oatmeal, walnuts and raisins. Mix well.
Drop the batter (1 tablespoon at a time) onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie slightly with the back of a spatula.
Bake 12 minutes until golden and firm. Remove cookies to a cake rack to cool (feel free to sample a few cookies... there will still be plenty for the Sneetch Treats!)
Once cookies have cooled, put a square of chocolate onto each cookie.
Heat up your grill (or smoker... or fire pit... or oven).
Place marshmallows on skewers or BBQ forks. Slowly roast marhmallows over the grill until they're golden on each side.
Carefully slide marshmallows off of forks and onto the chocolate-covered cookies. Place another cookie on top of the Marshmallow.

“Other creatures receive food simply as fodder. But we take the raw materials of the earth and work with them—touch them, manipulate them, taste them, glory in their heady smells and colors, and then, through a bit of alchemy, transform them into delicious creations.”
― Judith Jones, The Tenth Muse: My Life in Food
