Cookie Dough S’mores

I received The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook: Cookies, Cakes, Candies, and More for review a couple of weeks ago and finally got the chance to try out a recipe now that I’ve moved into my new apartment. It’s release date is June 5th, 2012, but you can pre order it on Amazon.

First off, can we all come to an agreement on how cute the cover is? If I had a cookbook, I’d want it to look just like this one. Each page had me grinning from ear to ear. Why? The font, the photos, and the styling were all just… perfect. I love it even more because Lindsay Landis was a blogger gone cookbook writer. She’s the author of Love and Olive Oil, one of the many food blogs I follow. It makes me so happy to see bloggers open new doors and find new opportunities. You go, girl!

Side note: Can we talk about the genius invention of these stackermallows? I found them at Target and they instantly make my life so much easier. No more worrying about those darn marshmallows rolling away before you can stack them inside a sandwich!

These were awesome. The amount was just perfect, too. I hate recipes that make 6 dozen cookies or 2 slices of biscotti. The recipe says it yields 12 s’mores, but I could have easily doubled the cookie dough in each one and cut the serving down to 6. :) Best of all? The leftover cookie dough that you don’t use can sit in an airtight container in the refrigerator for some serious snack time, without the fear of salmonella.

I did divert from the recipe a little bit, though. Instead of using bars of milk chocolate, I used mini chocolate chips and stirred them into my cookie dough batter. You’re more than welcome to do both or leave it as is. Either way, the chocolate’s all there!

Cookie Dough S’mores

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk or cream
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 12 graham cracker sheets, broken in half
  • 2 (1.55 ounce) bars milk chocolate
  • 12 marshmallows

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add vanilla and milk. Mix in flour and salt and beat on low speed (or by hand) until incorporated.
  2. Spread about 1 tablespoon of dough onto 12 of the graham cracker halves. Break chocolate bars into 12 equal pieces, and center one piece atop each mound of cookie dough.
  3. Toast marshmallows over an open flame until golden brown or charred to your liking. Place a hot marshmallow on top of cookied dough and chocolate and top with remaining graham crackers. Gently press until marshmallow begins to ooze out the sides. Let sit for 30 seconds -or as long as you can stand- to let the chocolate get sufficiently melty. Enjoy immediately.
  4. Easy Indoor S'mores: For a flameless version of this campfire favorite, place marshmallows on graham crackers and broil for 30 to 60 seconds, or until golden brown and gooey. Or microwave marshmallows for 8 to 10 seconds, or until puffed.

    I’m usually not a big s’mores fan (I just like to eat the roasted marshmallows and chocolate) but these look sooo good. I LOVE cookie dough, especially when it’s made just for eatin’. We will definitely be having these at our next bonfire. And I will definitely be owning that book someday. Thanks for sharing!

    I love your blog, can’t get enough of it! We both had our blog layout created through Smitten Blog Designs, so that technically makes us bloggie friends already! :)

    I just subscribed to your blog, can’t wait to see what else you come up with, love! I recently started a food and baking blog and I’d love for you to subscribe. It makes me smile to make new friends in the blog world! :)

    Looks so good! I hope I can find those marshmallows in Canada!

    Did you and your DB break-up? It just struck me as odd that you’d say “my” new apartment instead of “our” new apartment.

    Just a random note from a long time reader, first time commenter. Btw, reading this blog may have started a moderate addiction to smores.

    I was wondering what kind of Graham Crackers you used. They look thicker than the ones I usually buy. This recipe looks delicious, and its one of those things you can’t believe has never been thought of!
