Smores cookies with toasted marshmallow frosting

Happy summer!

With summer in full swing, I figured a smores recipe was in order. (Nothing like heating the oven up on a humid day!) These are a chocolate cookie topped with a Graham cracker cookie and frosted with toasted marshmallow frosting the topped with melted milk chocolate. This basically is a chocolate chip cookie dough, divided in half with a few ingredients added to each divided half to get the chocolate and graham cracker cookie dough. I tossed some milk chocolate chips in the graham cracker cookie. You can leave them out or also add some to the chocolate cookie too.

Yum!

I chilled these cookie dough mounds overnight. They still spread and are huge, but I felt the chilling of the dough was still beneficial. Remember to scoop your dough from your flour bag into your container so you get the right amount. Also, preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so you get to the right temp.

  • Cookies ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • Additional 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

Directions- cream butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Fold in 3 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and cornstarch. Divide dough in half. To one half, blend in graham cracker crumbs. Divide into 12 even size pieces. Roll into balls and slightly flatten. To other half, add baking cocoa and remaining 1/4 cup flour. Divide into 12 even size pieces. Roll into balls and slightly flatten.

Smores whoopie pies- NFL playoff edition

Smores whoopie pies

I figured I would up my treats game with the NFL super wildcard weekend. The Bills win over the Patriots was the best game I ever saw played by a Bills team. Just about everything went right and Josh Allen was flawless. Such a performance deserves a special cookie. So I present the smores whoopie pie – a Graham cracker cookie, fluff filling and melted chocolate on top. Each cookie is 1/4 cup of dough. The final whoopie pie is quite large, so next time I may only use 2 tbs dough for each cookie. Although I don’t expect any complaints at work with XL cookies

A few reminders – let your butter soften on the countertop for 45 minutes to an hour. Scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup. Preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking So your ovem cycles to the right temp.

Blend in dry ingredients, including Graham cracker crumbs. Scoop out 1/4 cups of dough. Slightly flatten. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. These are kind of hard to tell when they are done, but you don’t want to overcook them in the oven. Cool completely.

Panic treats

Graham cracker sugar cookie bar Smores

These are what I call panic treats – something that I whip up quickly when I fear the original amount of treats I have made to bring somewhere are not enough. (It’s a sickness, I know. But, I can’t be the only one who does this). I would rather bring too much, rather than too little. So these are Graham cracker sugar bar Smores. I wanted some wow factor, so I went beyond my sugar cookie mix. I tossed in some graham crackers, and topped the bars with marshmallow fluff and melted chocolate chips. Treats #4 for tomorrow for ESPN Radio

  • Ingredients
  • 1 sugar cookie mix
  • 1 cup crushed Graham crackers
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • Marshmallow fluff
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tbs vegetable oil

Directions – preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Line an 8×8 pan with tin foil. In a bowl, combine cookie mix, butter and Graham crackers. Press into bottom of the lined pan. Bake 15 to 17 minutes (edges will be lightly golden). Spoon some fluff on top of warm bars. In a microwave safe bowl, melt chips and oil in 30 second increments until you can stir smooth. Spread on top,of fluff layer and swirl together. Cut before chocolate layer hardens. Cool completley. Store in covered container.

Panic treats!

Friday football treats # 19 – Smores cookie bars

Smores sugar cookie bars

Today’s treat is in advance of the Bills AFC divisional playoff game vs the Ravens. A Saturday night game! I have all day to get nervous! I really need them to keep winning. They’ve been a needed distraction to this crapbag of a start to 2021. Maybe we’re getting all the bad stuff out of the way early.

These feature a Graham cracker sugar cookie base, followed by a layer of melted chocolate chips and topped with marshmallow fluff frosting. Of course, I got impatient and frosted them while they were still warm, so the frosting got mixed in with the melted milk chocolate. These are pretty easy and use sugar cookie mixes as part of the base.

  • 2 sugar cookie mixes
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 cups butter, melted
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

Directions – preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Combine sugar cookie mixes and graham cracker crumbs. Mix in melted butter. Press into an ungreased 9×13 pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes (will be light golden on top). Sprinkle chocolate chips. Let sit 5 minutes. Spread smooth. Let cool completely.

  • Frosting ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2-3 tbs milk

Directions – cream butter and fluff. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Blend in enough milk to get desired consistency., frost bars. Cut and store in covered container.

Go Bills!
