In any event, I was pretty hopped up about making these s’more cookies, although I have to say I was just a tiny bit skeptical about the whole thing hanging together. I had visions of melted chocolate all over the inside of my oven. But the lure of the s’more was too much for me to handle, so I gave it a go. The bottom cookie part is actually a dough made of the usual flour, sugar, butter, etc — and ground oatmeal with cinnamon. So it is a little sweet and crumbly, yum yum yum. The directions did say to put those squares of chocolate on top of the unbaked cookie dough and to bake them for 13 minutes. So fearing disaster, I did it. And phew, all was well. The chocolate (I used Hershey squares, natch) was soft but held its shape just fine.
These little goodies are AWESOME about 5 minutes out of the oven, but they are also great once they have totally cooked. The marshmallow goes from runny and creamy to a little chewy — but the taste still makes you say, let’s have s’more. And s’more. And s’more.
