I am not a huge fan of s'mores....I know, there aren't many of us around but I am one of 'those' people.  When we have a fire in the summer and everyone gathers round and gets excited when it's time for s'mores I pass.....I lovingly make a s'more but then let my kids fight over it {it wears them out so they leave me alone}.  I LOVE chocolate, I like marshmallows....graham crackers (GAG ME).

A few weeks ago I was at Aldi's and saw these adorable heart-shaped marshmallows in pink and white.  I bought them.  I thought about making s'mores but the thought of the graham crackers....again...gag me.

I had some Ritz crackers.....those are AWESOME.

I had Hershey Kisses.  I almost ate them all but then.... (insert lightbulb sound) I got to thinking....what about using the Ritz crackers INSTEAD of the graham crackers.  Hmmmmmm.....

Ritz cracker on the bottom, squishy marshmallow on top of that and then top it all off with a super cute Hershey Kiss.
