Raspberry Chocolate Chip Scones

I deeply cherish my day off every week. Tuesdays are my favorite day, but particular the Tuesdays that start with a small group I have with a few amazing women in my life. We meet, and discuss scripture, and drink coffee, and everyone but me eats delicious scones.

You see, we meet at a local Salt Lake coffee shop that has in-house-made muffins, cinnamon rolls, and scones--scones that I long after every other week.

And so I made my own scones, scones I am allowed to eat, and that are nearly as lovely as the women with whom I get to spend the mornings of my favorite day.

Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Cookies (Gluten-Free)

I make a special stop every time I'm in the grocery store to the fancy chocolate aisle. I usually go for something dark chocolate and salty, but lately my trips to Whole Foods have had me fawning over the chocolate covered marshmallows. Marshmallows are not usually my cup of tea, but for some reason, I pull them off the shelf every time I'm there to read the box, only to be reminded once again that these are not gluten-free.

Sometimes life just isn't fair.

Fueled with the injustice of it all, I made homemade chocolate cookies, and homemade marshmallows, and covered them with some high-quality bittersweet chocolate. I will never try the boxed chocolate covered marshmallows, but I am one million percent certain that these are better. They're so good. Just make them. The end.
