The ingredients of a summer well spent vary by person, but if you ask me, it includes a lot of watermelon and at least one campfire s'more. Indulgent, nostalgic, transportive, it doesn't get much better than a fire-roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between crisp graham crackers.

While perusing the goods at Farm + Table in Kennebunkport, Maine, I came across a new take on the traditional summer treat. Instead of graham crackers, Little Belgians s'mores kit contains crunchy, not-too-sweet speculoos cookies. Danger alert for those with a sweetooth (myself included). For those not familiar with the Belgian treat: it's an addictive caramelized spice cookie and sweet spread. Often used as a companion to coffee and tea, the cinnamon-flavored biscuits are hard to resist. Add fluffy vanilla marshmallows by The Candy and rich dark TCHO chocolate to the mix and you can imagine my predicament.
