SRC – S’mores Cookies from Amy’s Cooking Adventures

Well Dined | S'mores Cookies

It's time for another Secret Recipe Club reveal! This month I was assigned Amy's Cooking adventures, a blog that I recognize from my other blog circle - Food 'n Flix.  As I was looking into Amy's blog in more depth and reading her bio, I started to feel like I knew her.  I, too, came to cooking later in life.  I, too, have a masters but chose to stay at home (as a homemaker for now and hopefully a mother soon).  I, too, am an avid reader (and a huge geek/nerd in general).  I love that Amy posts a list of what she has been reading, and I love the books on those lists, too!  Her writing is very open and conversational and makes you feel like you are an old friend - what a treat!

I was really tempted to go with these Pesto Mozzarella Burgers on Tomato Basil Buns, maybe paired with a Roasted Blueberry Basil Margarita.  But then I saw that she had a ton of s'mores based recipes!  I love s'mores so much!  Would I go with s'mores brownies, cupcakes, or a frappuccino?  So many choices!  I eventually settled on cookies, but Amy has not 1, not 2, but 3 s'mores cookie recipes.  I decided to go with the 3rd and most recent recipe, because Amy said it's the best one and I trust her judgement.

They are a chocolate base with chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and graham cracker bits - and they really taste like s'mores!  You can store them in an airtight container, but I liked them best the first day, when the graham crackers were still crunchy.

They also have a secret ingredient - chocolate pudding mix!  I've used pudding mix in cakes and ice cream before, but hadn't thought about it for cookies - what a great idea!  They came out really fudgy and moist.  I really didn't make any changes at all to this recipe, it's perfect!

S’mores Treats

Well Dined | S'mores Treats

I had recently been experimenting with Rice Krispies treats, and when I saw Golden Grahams at the store I immediately thought of making a s'mores treat.  I wanted there to be bits of marshmallow and chocolate throughout (instead of all melted together).

It ended up being super easy - cereal, mini marshmallows, and chocolate chips bound together with melted marshmallow.

S'mores any time of year, no matter the weather, and without the mess!
