A New S'More

Jed and Buddy were reading this book* together last week and I overheard the part where they described a S'More being made out of chocolate chip cookies and marshmallows.  Brilliant, I thought.

To make it simpler for the kids to create as their Family Home Evening treat, I bought this Nestle chocolate filled chocolate chip cookie dough.  I baked the cookies, removed them and allowed them to cool.  Then I flipped half of the cookies upside down, added a large marshmallow and stuck them back in the oven until the marshmallow looked soft and fluffy (maybe 3 minutes).  Then I stuck the sandwiches together and allowed them to cool for about 5 minutes.  They were still really messy... but yummy.  Although next time, I'll use a normal chocolate chip (not the chocolate filled ones, which were kind of gross).  If I liked the hard cookies like Chips Ahoy, those would probably work best because they aren't going to be all flimsy and warm like a freshly baked cookie is.  But they were good...



*Jed hated that this book was marketed as for new chapter book readers.  There were a lot of hard words that a first chapter book reader shouldn't be expected to read.  He gave up reading it WITH Buddy and just read it TO him.

The last time our power went out we made these with recently made chocolate chip cookies and we roasted marshmallows in the fire place. So good. You've got some smart kids with great tastebuds!

Those look good. We like smores with roasted marshmallows in between fudge stripped cookies. You get the chocolate with less crumbly grahm cracker mess.
