This weekend the US Women's National Soccer Team did two things - 1.They reminded me that it is time for me to get back into the gym, and 2. They made history by beating Japan in the Fifa World Cup finals. Basically, while I was sitting there eating leftover 4th of July cobbler, these 23 women became legends as over 20 million (a new US record) tuned in to watch them win the United States a third World Cup Championship. It was pretty impressive. So before I get started talking about these cookies, I just wanted to say Congratulations to this amazing team! You guys have made your country very proud and even managed to get people to watch a female sporting event! (Insert a lot of clapping hands emoji's here)
Now for the cookies, or more specifically, S'mores Cookies. S'mores is by far my favorite flavor in life. I know that is not a typical thing to say, since most people don't really consider s'mores an actual flavor. But, with things like S'mores Ice Cream, S'mores Brownies, S'mores Bars, and S'mores Dip - I would argue otherwise. S'mores inspired treats are everywhere - and people love them.
These cookies are no exception. They are inspired by the popular campfire treat, but do not require that you actually go camping. Eating these cookies are more of an indoor activity - which I am totally down with. My S'mores Cookies have a soft and chewy graham cracker cookie base, loaded with chocolate chips and mini marshmallows and then topped off with a jumbo mallow and some dark chocolate drizzle. They are SO good.
*Makes about 24 cookies
How far in advance can I make these for a birthday party? and what is the best storage method?...THANK YOU!
Hi Carmen! To get the best tasting cookies, I would bake them the day before or day of the party. If you realllly want to push it, you can make it two days in advance and keep them in an airtight container in the fridge. But if you want to make them earlier than that, you can make the dough three/four weeks in advance. Scoop out individual dough balls on a tray lined with parchment, cover them in plastic wrap and put them in the freezer. Take the frozen dough out about 60 minutes before you are ready to bake them and let them come back to room temperature before you bake. Let me know if you have any further questions!
What size box of instant pudding did you use?
A 5.1 oz (144g) package.
I am going to try these cookies! I'll let you know how I do with them.
Hi Sue! I am sure you will do great! But let me know how it goes!
What an interesting idea. Where did you come up with it?
They were inspired by Martha Stewart's Surprise Cookies!
