S'mores Cookie Dough Bites

Crispy graham crackers. Melty milk chocolate. A perfectly roasted, warm, gooey marshmallow. What could be better than a good, old-fashioned, campfire s’more? How about raw cookie dough, s’more-ified, and then dipped into chocolate? You many not get the gooiness of a melted marshmallow with this recipe but you’ll get the flavor of a classic s’more, without the campfire. If you don’t have a kitchen blowtorch try toasting the marshmallows on a sheet pan in your broiler —just keep an eye on them, stirring them every few minutes, so that they don’t burn.

Notes

Store the s’mores cookie dough bites in the refrigerator — just be sure to leave them at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before serving.

Ingredients

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¾ Cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • ½ vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ Cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ Cup graham cracker crumbs, plus more for sprinkling
  • 24 miniature marshmallows
  • 1 Cup chocolate chips

Directions

Beat the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and salt and mix until combined. Put the flour into a large frying pan over medium heat. Toast the flour, stirring constantly, until it has a light golden color and a nutty fragrance. Add the flour and graham cracker crumbs to the butter and mix until combined. Divide the cookie dough into 24 equal portions. Place the marshmallows on a baking sheet and gently toast them with a kitchen blowtorch. Turn the marshmallows over and toast the other side. When the marshmallows have cooled, use your hands to wrap one piece of cookie dough around each miniature marshmallow. When all of the cookie dough bites have been rolled, place them on a waxed paper-lined sheet pan in the refrigerator to chill for 1 hour or more. When the cookie dough bites are thoroughly chilled, melt the chocolate chips. Dip the chilled cookie dough into the chocolate, shaking off any excess. Place the chocolate-dipped bites onto the waxed paper-lined sheet pan, sprinkling the tops with graham cracker crumbs as you go. Allow the chocolate to harden in the refrigerator before serving.

Cookie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cookie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.

Cookie Wine Pairing

Milk is more traditional with cookies than wine in the U.S., but a few cookies and a glass of sweet wine make a simple, enjoyable dessert. Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based cookies; sauternes or sweet German wines with sugar cookies; cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts; Italian vin santo with biscotti.
