2080 E. William Field Road, Gilbert
2 fruit roll-ups (full size)
3 Rice Krispie treat squares
8 Samoas cookies
6 Trefoils cookies
strawberry puree sauce
1. On a cutting board, lay fruit roll-ups down so they overlap on the shorter sides by half an inch. Unwrap Rice Krispie treats and place in microwave for 20 seconds. Push Rice Krispie treats down onto the roll-ups, and spread into one even layer so no fruit roll-up is showing. Turn upside down so the Rice Krispie treat is on the cutting board and the roll-up side is facing up.
2. Break four Samoas in half and lay them down, overlapping just a little bit, in one line lengthwise across the fruit roll-up. Break three Trefoils into pieces and lay them on top of the Samoas. Roll the entire sheet of Rice Krispies, roll-ups and cookies into a tube, to look like a sushi roll.
3. Break four Samoas in half and lay them across the top of the roll. Use a sushi rolling mat to crimp the roll into shape and push the Samoas down into the top.
4. Cut into 9 pieces. Place the roll lengthwise on a plate, with each piece offset slightly from the one ahead of it. Place a dollop of whip cream on each piece and generously drizzle caramel, chocolate and strawberry puree on top of the roll. Crunch up remaining Trefoils and sprinkle cookie crumbles on top of the roll.

Let’s get my views of the gay and lesbian community out of the way first, to clear the runway for the topic of gays and the Boy Scout program.
