I’ve still got S’mores on my mind, and these S’mores Sandwich Cookies are made with charred, gooey marshmallow fluff and a thick layer of dark chocolate sandwiched between two soft and chewy graham cracker cookies. It’s the best of a homemade s’more packed into a satisfying sandwich cookie!
I know some of you out there are getting ready to go back to school. Not us. My kiddos got out of school the last week of June. Yup. The. Last. Week. Of. June.
So that means, we still have about three weeks of summer left. Woo hoo! We don’t head back to school until after Labor Day.
Seriously though, I’m not sure how I feel about that. I mean, I think I’d rather start school earlier and end earlier, but it’s beyond my control, so I’m just gonna let it go.
Since we are technically still in the middle of our summer, we’re still in full-on-s’mores mode. And we’re indulging with these S’mores Sandwich Cookies.
The cookie part of these S’mores Sandwich Cookies is made with crushed graham crackers instead of all-purpose flour. It adds graham cracker flavor and a chewy, oatmeal-like texture. They are delicious. The cookies were almost all eaten before I could put these S’mores Sandwich Cookies together. I had to make a second batch of cookies because half of the first batch mysteriously disappeared before I could assemble the s’mores.
What’s inside these bad boys? Well – marshmallows and dark chocolate ganache.
So my original plan was to make homemade marshmallow fluff, but then I decided to go for the jarred stuff. Sometimes you want to have a S’mores Sandwich Cookie without too much fuss. So, jarred marshmallow fluff it was.
And for the chocolate, I decided on a dark chocolate ganache. I wanted something with a little more body to add to the marshmallow fluff, and let’s be honest, nothing beats a luscious ganache.
Why dark chocolate? Well, I felt like it countered the uber-sweet marshmallow fluff. But if you like semi-sweet chocolate or milk chocolate, go right ahead and use that.
These S’mores Sandwich Cookies couldn’t be easier. Cookies made with crushed graham crackers, marshmallow fluff, and dark chocolate ganache. So perfect and so satisfying.
