S’mores Sandwich Cookies

S’mores Sandwich Cookies

Hey Y’all! Soooo….I’m about to change your life right now with S’mores Sandwich Cookies!! You don’t even need a campfire to create this delightful little treat. The cookies on their own are completely amazing so you’re going to have to resist devouring them hot out of the oven. But when you sandwich them together with a goey toasted marshmallow then you’ve really got the s’mores of your dreams. The first bite is the best part! Hints of cinnamon, graham cracker crumbs, and lots of chocolate chips make this easy to assemble sandwich cookie an instant hit. I  know campfire marshmallows are a highly debated topic, but whether you’re team burnt, brown, or undercooked, we can all agree these cookies the best!!! S’mores lovers be warned cause it’s about to get dangerous. I’m warning you right now…be prepared for these to disappear quickly!!

Here’s all you’ll need: butter, white sugar, brown sugar, egg, milk, vanilla extract, flour, graham crackers, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon, chocolate chips and marshmallows.

So without further ado….here is the next recipe you’ll be making on repeat! In a large bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. A hand mixer on medium speed will get the job done for ya. And it helps immensely if the butter is softened ahead of time (even if that means you gotta nuke it in the microwave for a hot second).

Next beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla extract and mix well. Imitation vanilla is perfectly fine for this recipe. I find that the chocolate chips, graham crackers and marshmallows bring plenty of sweetness to the table.

Mix in the baking soda, salt, and cinnamon to distribute throughout the cookie dough. Then, at a low speed, blend in the flour a half a cup at a time. Continue to mix until the flour is well combined.

Stir in the graham cracker crumbs and chocolate chips. To make graham cracker crumbs I quickly pulsed the graham cracker pieces in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor handy you can add the graham crackers to a plastic ziploc bag and break apart by hand or use a heavy rolling pin to crush into pieces. Chocolate chips and graham cracker crumbs are added to the cookie dough. #smorescookies #smoresrecipes #sandwichcookies #rainydayactivities #christmascookies

Scoop out a tablespoon of cookie dough and roll into a ball. The dough will be sticky so you’ll want to act fast and use a light touch. Place the cookie dough balls on a parchment lined baking sheet spread about 2 inches apart. You’ll want to give these cookies some space because they definitely spread A LOT while baking.

If you’re not familiar with it, parchment paper is a non-stick baking paper. It reduces browning and when you’re done using it you can just toss it in the trash. No mess! It’s probably my favorite baking tool and a really easy way to elevate your cookie making. Cookie dough balls on a parchment lined backing sheet. #smorescookies #campingrecipes #campingideas #campingbirthdayparty #bestcookierecipes

Bake S’mores Sandwich Cookies in a 375 degree preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. 9 minutes was just perfect in my oven. Leave the cookies on the baking sheet for 1-2 minutes or until easy to remove with a spatula. Remove the cookies to a wire rack or countertop to finish cooling. S'mores cookies on a baking sheet hot out of the oven. #smorescookies #s'morescookes #smores #s'mores #sandwichcookies #summerrecipes

Place cookies bottom side up back on the baking sheet. Top each cookie bottom with a large marshmallow. Broil on low for 1-5 minutes or until desired toasty-ness. Keep a close watch during this step as marshmallows can burn quickly. You’ll know they’re done when the tops are toasted and the marshmallows begin to puff. Cookie bottoms placed on a backing sheet and topped with a marshmallow. #smores #smorescookies #smoressanwichcookies #sanwichcookies #cookierecipes #bestcookierecipes

Remove from the oven and immediately top with another cookie. Enjoy the ooey, gooey, goodness of s’mores without the campfire. Simply irresistible!!! If you love our S’mores Sandwich Cookies then you’ve gotta try our S’mores Bar too. Just Mmmmmmm!

Cookies and Cream Rice Krispies Treats

Cookies and Cream Rice Krispies Treats

If you haven’t tried Cookies and Cream Rice Krispie Treats, then you’re doing it wrong! This extraordinary mashup combines two of my most loved goodies, Oreo cookies and Rice Krispies cereal. Have you ever asked yourself what happens when Oreo cookies and Rice Krispies collide? This spinoff on the traditional Rice Krispies Treat recipe is born. And it’s to die for!! They’re seriously the most delicious Rice Krispie Treat you’ve ever tasted (coming from a girl who’s tasted a lot of Rice Krispie Treats). We’ve jam-packed chunks of Oreo cookies throughout the cereal bar, smothered them in white chocolate, then loaded up the top with even more double-stuffed cookies and cream goodness. They’re crunchy, they’re chewy, they’re ooey, they’re gooey. THEY’RE AMAZING!!! Put ’em out at a party and they’ll be the first thing gone!

Here’s all you’ll need: butter, mini marshmallows, Rice Krispies, Double-stuffed Oreos, and white chocoalte baking chips. Seriously only 5 ingredients!

Cookies and Cream Rice Krispies Treats ingredients list

Ok first things first let’s get our prep work done because once we get rollin’, this recipe comes together pretty quickly. So chop up those Oreos into decent sized chunks and set aside. Double-Stuffed Oreos are the obvious choice! Split the pile in half and set aside.

Oh and one more beyond fabulous bonus to this recipe, just like the regular version of Rice Krispies Treats, they’re no bake! Melt the butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Next add the mini marshmallows and stir and stir and stir until they’ve melted in with the butter. Be cautious while stirring. This mixture will get very hot and sticky.

Remove from the heat and stir in half of the Oreo cookie chunks and all 6 cups of the Rice Krispies cereal. You want to not only evenly distribute the Oreo cookies throughout the mixture but also make sure everything is covered in marshmallow. I find that it’s easiest to work “gently” and also to constantly scoop from the bottom of the pan. It’ll take a few minutes to mix it all up. Just keep mixing til you’re happy with it.

Grease a 9X13″ baking dish with butter. Really all that means is your smearing butter all over the pan so the cereal treat mixture doesn’t stick. Spoon the Cookies and Cream Rice Krispies Treat mixture into the pan. Gently press it out to flatten. Don’t pack them too hard otherwise we’ll end up with super firm, hard to bite into treats. If you use a gentle touch, you’ll achieve light and airy, perfectly soft and chewable Rice Krispies snacks.

Add the white chocolate chips to a microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Continue to heat but this time in 15 second intervals, stirring between each interval, until the white chocolate chips are smooth and creamy. White chocolate can be a bit tricky to work with. Basically if you heat it too quickly it becomes hard and unusable. But I find that 15 second intervals with lots of stirring in between heating helps to avoid this problem.

Spread the melted white chocolate over the top of the Cookies and Cream Rice Krispies Treats to cover. Use a butter knife of the back of a spoon to spread that deliciousness over every nook and cranny. We want it all covered!
