Chocolate Chip S'mores at Chasing Delicious

Chocolate Chip S’mores

Short grey days seem to linger with little purpose. Chilly mornings feel gelid and uninviting. They seem to say, “go back inside and sip on cocoa.”  Everybody searches for warmth.

Blankets are stacked high on beds and couches, always within reach. Fluffy coats hang by drafty doors. Fires roar to life inside and outside.

S’mores, the quintessential summertime treat, warm my soul during cold, dark winter days and nights.

Sub in some chocolate chip cookies for graham crackers and you have the best comfort treat around. The best part about these guys? They taste almost exactly like a s’more and you don’t even have to go outside and build a campfire to enjoy them.

These cookies are my standard chocolate chip cookies with extra chocolate (milk chocolate to mimic S’mores). It also uses graham flour to mimic the graham cracker flavor.

t 30 minutes prep & baking
1 hour resting  

o Tools:

Stand mixer and paddle attachment
or  a large bowl and wooden spoon
Cookie Sheet
Cooling rack

i Ingredients:

4 ounces unsalted butter, at room temp.
3 ounces brown sugar
3 ounces sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 ounces graham flour
3 ounces all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 ounces milk chocolate, chopped

n Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a cookie with parchment paper and set aside.

2. Put the butter and sugar in a bowl. Beat until light and fluffy, about five minutes.

While Italian meringue is the most difficult of the meringues to execute, it is the only meringue that doesn’t require additional cooking and thus is perfect for this application. Italian meringue will also have a long shelf life when refrigerated so making a larger batch at once for multiple applications is always an option. In fact, italian meringue is pretty much an all natural version of marshmallow cream!

    Pinning this recipe as I sit huddled under my blanket trying to find warmth. A warm, toasty cookie sounds lovely right about now.

  • shelly (cookies and cups)

    Seriously? I can’t. These are. Yes.

  • Mary @ The Kitchen Paper

    Russel, you are a GENIUS! I really need to get myself a kitchen torch now!

  • Mary @ The Kitchen Paper

    These look amazing. I would love to have one of these!!!

  • Joanne

    I choose these over traditional smores. Any day. I mean….chocolate chip cookies win out over graham crackers. No question.

  • Averie @ Averie Cooks

    Now THIS is a cookie recipe! Russel they look so good and I want to just dip my finger into that meringue center and chomp into a cookie!

  • Alison @ Ingredients, Inc.

    LOVE THIS! Missed you

  • Diane {Created by Diane}

    FABULOUS! that is really all I can say about these :)

  • thelittleloaf

    I LOVE this idea – so much nicer than the graham cracker version :-) I’ve got some leftover egg whites in my fridge just begging to be made into this.

  • Carolyn

    How absolutely decadent!

  • Brian @ A Thought For Food

    First, i need to make those cookies on their own. They sound incredible. Then I’ll move onto the s’mores. ;-)

  • Kiersten @ Oh My Veggies

    I don’t eat marshmallows, so this makes me VERY happy. :D

  • Sommer@ASpicyPerspective

    Superb idea Russell! Wonder if they can be shipped?

  • naomi

    Good lord, I need some of this- a lot of this!

  • Ashley Bee (Quarter Life Crisis Cuisine)

    These look fantastic!! Gorgeous and delicious and the best kind of s’more. Does Italian meringue behave like marshmallow? I’d eat it either way though…

  • FashionEdible

    Beautiful! I love that Italian meringue recipe. I’ve made my own marshmallows so this would be a nice recipe to try.

  • Joanna @ Chic & Gorgeous Treats

    I’m head over heels right now and you had me at chocolate-chip s’mores. I still have yet to come up with something.. but I’m sure it’s coming real soon ;). ♥ Jo

  • Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

    Seriously tempting! Yes please.

  • Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar

    I can’t think of anything I want more today. These look fabulous!!

  • Gary

    Chocolate-Chip Smores…. Compound adjective describing a noun is hyphenated.

  • erinn johnson

    WOW! Will have to give these a try. This might be good for my superbowl party made mini-sized. We do lots of small bites for the party.

  • Lori @ RecipeGirl

    BRILLIANT. That is all.

  • RavieNomNoms

    Holy S’more heaven! These look outstanding!!

  • kita

    Probably not the most legit comment – but there are hands in your picture! And I know it takes a stunt double to pull that off and push the button at the same time. That is all.

    PS. These s’more are fat kid approved. ;)

  • Michael Toa

    My Lord… They look fantastic Russell. Utterly brilliant.

  • Loretta | A Finn In The Kitchen

    Truly incredible! And so nostalgic…

  • Rownak

    Meringue!!! yummy.. i dont have kitchen torch…Poor me. can i bake it?

  • Shaina

    How did you know I’m chasing warmth? I need these in my life, and I don’t mind the tediousness of Italian meringue, especially not when it involves standing over a hot stove for a while.

  • Jessica

    I really love this idea. It’s so perfect and smart! Looks amazing, seriously making me question the recent juice and raw veg cleanse I started…
