The best thing about having a best friend who also likes to cook and bake is that when I have some weird recipe idea, she doesn’t look at me with judgement. Instead, she helps take the recipe to a whole other level. And that is exactly what happened with these chocolate chip cookie s’mores.
While she was in town a couple weeks ago, I wanted to enlist her help to make some sort of cookie sandwich. I didn’t know quite what I had in mind. But then through some brainstorming and bouncing ideas off each other we landed on chocolate chip cookie s’mores with roasted marshmallow fluff.
Sounds delicious, right? Boy was it!
We started by baking some classic chocolate chip cookies. Then once the cookies were out of the oven and cooled, we piped some marshmallow fluff on to one cookie and topped it with another.
Then to makes these taste even more like s’mores, we took the crème brulee torch to the exposed marshmallow fluff to get it nice and roasted.
A quick warning to any of you who choose to make these (and I highly recommend that you do), marshmallow fluff can get really runny. Once you assemble these cookie sandwiches, eat them immediately! Many chocolate chip cookies sandwiches sacrificed themselves for us to finally figure this out. And by sacrifice, I mean Michelle and I ate them because they weren’t “pretty” enough for the picture.
It’s a hard job, but someone has to do it.
An alternative would be to use the big marshmallows and roast them over a fire or under the broiler, then sandwich them between two chocolate chips cookies. I mean, however you have to do it to get the job done. A marshmallow between two cookies can never be bad, can it?
- 16 chocolate chip cookies
- 7 oz (one jar) or marshmallow fluff OR 8 large marshmallows
- Place 8 of the cookies top side down so that their flat surface is facing up. Spoon the marshmallow fluff into a piping bag and snip 1 inch from the tip. Pipe the marshmallow fluff on to the flat surface of the cookie, leaving a small margin around the edge.
- Top with another cookie, then using your crème brulee torch, roast the outside edges of the marshmallow.
- If using marshmallows, place marshmallows on a baking sheet and broil for 1 minute or until they start to char. Flip for even roasting. Then place on the cookie and top with another.
- Eat immediately
