S’mores Cookies with Amy’s Cooking Adventures

Summer is definitely upon us and we’re in the middle of a pretty good heat wave, and looking at the weather map of the US, we’re certainly not the only ones suffering from this heat wave.    With the dog days of summer still weeks away, all we can do is try to stay as cool as possible, and out of the direct sunlight!   I’ have to  wonder how this heat is going to effect our summer crop of fruits and vegetables, let’s hope not to badly.   The last thing we need is a produce shortage that drives the prices up even more….sigh

But it’s Friday, the end of yet another work week and just about time to relax and start the weekend.  Of course you know that also means it’s Guest Post Friday……Woo hoo!

Today my friends it’s my great pleasure to share my blog with my friend Amy from Amy’s Cooking Adventures, and has she cooked up the perfect summer treat for us today!   If you’ve never visited with Amy before, the name of her blog,  Cooking Adventures is right on the  mark, as she leads you through some great tasting adventures!

You’ll find all sorts of amazing creations  at Amy’s Cooking Adventures, where she delights her readers with everything from cheese enchiladas to potato chip cookies, one delicious post after another!  You’re going to love what you see on her pages, but I’m warning you now, you better have some snacks ready because you’re going to be hungry after checking out her posts……I can feel my stomach rumbling just thinking of all those tasty treats!

So sit back, relax, put your feet up and let the drooling begin, as I give you ………..

 

Amy’s Cooking Adventures

 Hello everyone!  I’m Amy from Amy’s Cooking Adventures!  I’m a Stay at Home Mommy of two sweet little boys with a little bit of Zumba instructing and a whole lot of cooking on the side!

Funny story.  Just a couple weeks ago I was working up the nerve to ask Chef Dennis if I might be able to guest post on his blog.  I had the e-mail typed and then my shyness won out and I deleted the whole thing.  Then just two days later (no exaggeration!), much to my surprise, I had a message in my inbox from Chef Dennis inviting me to post here today!  Too funny!  I guess great minds think alike!

When it came time to choose a recipe, I thought, why not choose something that is quintessentially summer: S’mores!

These lovelies are a brownies mix base with graham crackers and more chocolate stuffed inside.  Then a marshmallow is toasted on top while they finish baking and topped off with a Kiss!  Did I mention that the chocolate is my favorite part of a s’more?

Enjoy these cookies with a big ‘ol glass of milk and imagine you’re sitting by a campfire!

Thank you so much Chef Dennis for having me here today!  It’s been a pleasure!

S’mores Cookies

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 20
Ingredients
  • 1 family sized box brownie mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup (120 ml) oil
  • ½ tsp (3 gm) coarse sea salt
  • 1 cup (100 gm) graham crackers, broken
  • 1 cup (150 gm) mini Hershey Kisses
  • 20 large marshmallows
  • 20 Hershey Kisses, unwrapped
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line several baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together the brownie mix, eggs, oil, and salt until well combined. The mixture will be quite thick.
  3. Fold in the graham cracker pieces and mini Hershey kisses. Scoop about 1-2 tablespoons of dough onto the prepared cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.
  4. Place the cookies, one tray at a time, in the oven to bake. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until the edges are set, but the middle is a bit underdone (it will finish cooking under the broiler).
  5. Turn the oven to broil and place 1 marshmallow into the center of each cookie. Broil on a lower rack for 1-2 minutes (watching carefully) until the marshmallows are lightly browned.
  6. **Warning: Parchment paper is not meant to go under the broiler. Either move the cookies onto an unlined baking sheet or use extreme caution while broiling.
  7. Once the marshmallows are lightly browned, press one Hershey Kiss into each marshmallow and move to wire racks to cool.
  8. Continue baking the remaining cookies.

  1. I love it when serendipitous things happen – this guest post was meant to be! I love the idea of s’mores cookies – perfect for a backyard potluck!

  2. Hi Amy and Chef. I guess this guest post was meant to be since you guys thought about it at the same time! And I’m so glad you did. Dudette would LOVE these cookies. She asks me for s’mores all the time, but with it as hot here as it is elsewhere (yeah, I feel your pain, Chef), there’s no way I’m sitting around a fire with a marshmallow on a stick. This recipe removes that need! Thanks for creating it and sharing it, Amy.

  3. I love s’mores, what a fun idea to turn them into these cookies. Perfect for summer!
