When I was younger, like many other girls, I was a Girl Scout. Yes, I did the whole door-to-door selling cookies, so I developed a soft spot for cookies. My mom was never one for baking either, so when I was old enough to learn how to bake, I was all for it.
These cookies bring together my love of baking and another key aspect of scouting, s’mores. The recipe was loosely adapted from Pinterest but also a result of experimentation with my sister and cousin.
S’more stuffed cookies
Makes 12 cookies
– 12 graham crackers
– 3 chocolate bars broken into four pieces each (I prefer Hershey’s milk chocolate, especially since it’s so easy to break into pieces)
– 12 marshmallows (larger ones typically work best)
– Cookie dough (any kind, I used chocolate chip)
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Break the graham crackers along the center perforation of the cracker.
3. Make a s’more by sandwiching a piece of chocolate, or several, and a marshmallow in between two pieces of graham cracker.
4. Put cookie dough on the top and bottom of the s’more.
5. Add cookie dough to the sides of the s’more until it is completely covered.
6. Put the covered s’mores onto a cookie sheet and bake for 15-17 minutes or until the outsides start to turn brown.
7. Let the cookies cool for about 10 minutes and serve.
These cookies were definitely interesting to make, a little too much sugar for my taste buds, but they were a lot of fun.
I probably could have made the cookie dough from scratch, but the cookie dough made my job a lot easier, as long as you remember to thaw it out before you try to work with it. Which I did not do. I had assembled all of my s’mores, which were all sitting on the cookie pan and I just could not get the cookie dough out of the tub. I got so frustrated, I may or may not have stabbed the cookie dough with a knife. Eventually, the dough thawed out enough for us to cover our s’mores with.
I gave this recipe a 1 out of 5 star difficulty because it’s really not that hard. It’s not like it’s calculus or something. It just requires a little bit of patience in thawing the dough and waiting for the cookies to bake and cool down. Definitely an easy recipe for anyone who wants to make something new.
