I decided to go with a smores dessert, but took it up a notch. Plain old graham crackers would not cut it. I have seen smores recipes that use pound cake, different kinds of candies and cookies. I decided on cutting back some flour and adding crushed Graham crackers to one of the thousand chocolate chip cookie recipes I have. I subbed in milk chocolate chips for semisweet chips. I also toasted the marshmallows by broiling them in our toaster oven for a few minutes. Watch them carefully so they don’t burn.
You could use fluff, if you want. I also melted some milk chocolate chips and slathered some on the bottom of each cookie before sandwiching two together with a marshmallow.
