Recipe Review: S'more Cookies

I love to cook -- well bake is probably a bit more accurate -- but I'm not super adventurous or original in the kitchen. I typically find a recipe that sounds delicious and follow it to a tee.  If I love the result, the recipe is a keeper. If not, I usually never try it again -- I'm not daring enough to try tweaking it myself.  There are so many amazing food blogs out there, so I thought every now and then it'd be fun to just share the ones I stumble across and the recipes I've tried and loved.  It should be no surprise at all that I decided to start with something sweet :)

The other night I was craving s'mores. They -- along with anything caramel related -- are among my most favorite things.  Since I am without a fireplace and it's 90+ degrees this week, I decided making actual s'mores was out of the question so I began searching for s'more related baked goods.  I started looking at cookies and it didn't take long for me to find the recipe I wanted to try from Ice Cream Before Dinner.  

I quickly ran to the store to grab marshmallows and got started right away. They were extremely easy to make and only require a minimal amount of babysitting while baking so you can push the Hershey bars in half way through.  When they were done, it took some serious self control to let them cool completely, but they were worth the wait!

This was the only photo I managed to snap before digging in!  Needless to say, these hit the spot and I'll be making them again when the s'more craving strikes -- maybe next time with a few extra marshmallows :)

Happy baking and eating!


  1. Those look delicious, I can't wait to try to make them! I've been craving s'mores lately too, but it's way too hot here already as well!

  2. i want to make THESE!

  3. I made these for labor day and they were a HUGE hit!!! I will now be trying your pumpkin gooey bars - in fact I may be sending Sam back to the store for the ingredients for dinner tonight...
