Double Chocolate Chip S’MORMON

SMORMON double chocolate chip

Ingredients:

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
Marshmallow Creme

Commentary:

The easy way to make a S’MORMON is to just put marshmallow creme between whatever cookies your wife happens to be baking on any given night! These cookies feature Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips which add a luxuriant creaminess to the dark chocolate dough. These cookies would make pretty good S’MORMONS no matter what type of chips you use — white chocolate, semi-sweet, peanut butter, butterscotch, mint, etc. You’ll have to change the name of the S’MORMON to match the chip, though, but that’s the magic and flexibility of S’MORMONS. If you can think it, you can S’MORE it!

Traditional S’MORMON

Ingredients:

1. Homemade Graham Crackers (recipe)
2. Your choice of chocolate
3. Your choice of marshmallow

Commentary:

Really all that’s essential with this recipe is to make your own homemade graham crackers. There are several recipes online. I’m not completely sold on the recipe we used, but I also didn’t follow it exactly (they certainly didn’t take 25 minutes to bake, so keep your eye on them). When we made these S’MORMONS, we used marshmallow creme and a variety bag of Ghirardelli chocolate squares.

Gingerbread Peppermint S’MORMON

Ingredients:

1. Gingerbread Cookies
2. Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark
3. Marshmallow Creme

Commentary:

This is an example of a recipe that was so good that I forgot to take a picture until after we had eaten them all. But this does provide a good illustration of how messy S’MORMONS can be. So, be careful and plan accordingly.

A variation on this S’MORMON can be made with a Peppermint Christmas Peep that comes dipped in dark chocolate. You’ll have to decide which recipe you prefer.

Chocolate Raspberry S’MORMON

Ingredients:

1. Mudcrack Cookies (i.e. Chocolate Crinkles)
2. Ghirardelli Dark & Raspberry Chocolate Square
3. Marshmallow Creme

Commentary:

Since my dad is a geologist, Mudcrack Cookies is my family’s name for Chocolate Crinkles. (If you think about it, Mudcrack Cookies does make for a more visually descriptive and inviting name than Chocolate Crinkles.) This recipe is as good as it sounds, however it could use a bit more raspberry. You might consider adding a drop of raspberry jam or maybe an actual raspberry (yes, they really do exist!).
