S'more Cookies

I have been under the weather for the past couple of days and Dana wanted to cheer me up.  So she made some of the tastiest cookies around.  S’more cookies.  Yep, that campfire favorite is now a tasty cookie.  The chocolate, graham cracker and marshmallow works great as a tasty cookie.  They were so delicious, that I am feeling much better.  Thanks for the treat Dana!

S’more Cookies

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter with white and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Then add the eggs one at a time mix thoroughly after each egg.  Next add the vanilla. Mix until combined.

Cream the butter and sugar

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon to combine. Turn the mixer to low speed and then slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixer.

Slowly add the flour

Fold in the chocolate chips and marshmallows in by hand.

Fold in the marshmallows and chocolate chips

Chill dough in refrigerator for at least 1 hour to overnight.

Chill the dough

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line cookies sheets with a silpat or parchment paper.

Lay out graham crackers side by side on the pans as close as possible. Dana used 18 -24 graham cracker squares on each pan. Basically cover the cookie sheet with graham crackers.

Line up the graham crackers and top with 1 tbs of the dough

Place about 1 tablespoon of dough on each graham cracker and press down slightly with fingertips.

Bake for 5 minutes then remove from oven to press Hershey’s bar pieces on to the top. We placed a single Hershey rectangle on each cookie.  At this time you might want to also add a couple more mini marshmallows too.

Partially bake and then add the Hershey chocolate

Bake for an additional 7-9 minutes or until the edges begin to turn golden brown.

Awesome S'more Cookies

Remove to a wire rack to cool.

Smore Brownies

Smore Brownies

Smore Brownies

I recently saw a commercial with what looked like Smore Brownies in it.  Not sure if it was but it gave me the idea to tackle this recipe.  I used a graham cracker crust, a chocolate brownie filling and topped it all off with some marshmallow fluff.  It was delicious.

Smore Brownies

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place a piece of aluminum foil in a 9×9 pan.  Lightly grease the foil with cooking spray.

Foil your pan

Creating the Crust:

In a medium bowl combine the 1 1/4 cup of cracker crumbs with 1/3 cup of butter, 3 tablespoons of sugar and a pinch of salt. Mix well.

Mix the crust

Press the mixture into the foil lined and greased 9×9 pan.

Press into the pan

Bake in the oven for 8 minutes or just until the cracker crust sets.

The Brownie

You can use your favorite brownie recipe, a boxed recipe or my favorite brownie recipe.

Mix your brownies and have them ready for when the crust comes out of the oven.

Have the brownie batter ready

Pour the brownie batter into the pan over the cracker crust.

Pour into the pan

Bake the brownies according to your brownie recipe.

Allow to cool

Remove from the oven and let cool.

The Marshmallow Topping

I failed to allow my brownies to cool completely so when I added the marshmallow fluff to my brownies it immediately started to melt.  Oops.  At least you get to learn from my mistakes.  Let your brownies cool.

The fluff

Spread the marshmallow fluff over the cooled brownies.

Scorch the top of the fluff

Then using a butane torch gently brown the marshmallow. If you do not have a torch, don’t worry.  Set your oven to broil and broil the marshmallow until browned.  Watch out.  Fluff is extremely flammable.

Remove from the pan

Lift the brownies from the pan using the aluminum foil.

Awesome Smore Brownie

Cut into squares and enjoy!

Notes
Make Sure to let the brownies cool before adding the fluff. If you do not have a torch use your broiler. Make sure to watch the brownies as fluff catches fire pretty easily.

 

These brownies were delicious!  They totally had the campfire feel.

The perfect Brownie

I love the fluff.  A tip is to make sure to use fluff.  It will not get as hard as marshmallows once browned.  If you use marshmallows, they tend to immediately get hard and make the brownies inedible after an hour or so.
