A fun new twist on traditional s’mores – add a layer of decadent (eggless) cookie dough for some amazing deliciousness!
Man, it is way too hot outside to turn on the oven. But I still want dessert. And yes, I love ice cream, but there are the (rare) days when I want something else. And grilled fruit isn’t going to cut it.
That’s where these cookie dough s’mores come in. They are a fun variation of the traditional campfire s’mores, except no campfire and no oven required! That’s right – you can either microwave your marshmallows or use a kitchen torch to melt and char them.
The cookie dough layer gave these s’mores a fun new taste and texture. The slight grittiness from the cookie dough and the flavor definitely amped up the s’mores, and in a very good way.
My family and I enjoyed these one evening after a super hot day at the pool. Once we had finally cooled down and had our dinner, we scarfed these down like ice pops.
If you’re a fan of s’mores, try this variation!
Cookie dough s’mores
- 1/2 stick unsalted butter room temperature
- 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 Tablespoons milk or heavy cream
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 12 graham cracker sheets broken in half
- 2 1.55 ounce bars milk chocolate
- 12 large marshmallows
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl if using a handheld mixer, cream the butter and sugars together on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add in the vanilla and milk and mix well. Turn the mixer to low and slowly add in the flour and salt and mix until the mixture is uniform.
- Spread about 1 Tablespoon of the cookie dough mixture on top of 1 half of the graham cracker sheet. Top with a piece of chocolate and 1 large marshmallow. You can torch the marshmallow with a kitchen torch or broil it for about 30 seconds in the oven. Alternatively, you can microwave the marshmallows for about 8-10 seconds. Top with another graham cracker half and smash the two halves together.
