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!

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!
- 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
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line several baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In a mixing bowl, stir together the brownie mix, eggs, oil, and salt until well combined. The mixture will be quite thick.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
- **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.
- Once the marshmallows are lightly browned, press one Hershey Kiss into each marshmallow and move to wire racks to cool.
- Continue baking the remaining cookies.
What a perfect summertime treat, S’mores bring back so many memories, and having them made into cookies just makes them so much easier to eat! Thanks for such a delicious guest post Amy! Now before you forget head on over to Amy’s Cooking Adventures and say hello, you’ll be so happy you did! Just remember to give youself enough time to drool over all of the wonderful creations you’ll find there!
