Chocolate Chip Cookie S’more Sandwiches

Love chocolate chip cookies? Love s’mores? Why not get the two together? Sure, you can make cookie sandwiches with frosting or ice cream – but why not fill two chewy, chocolatey cookies with a gooey toasted marshmallow? There’s no need for an open fire; marshmallows can be quickly broiled on a baking sheet to create that crisp golden exterior and melted marshmallow middle. Cookies are easier – and less messy – to fill, and the result, with its buttery cookie and chocolate, is reminiscent of a s’more, only (if I may say so) better.

To broil marshmallows, place them on a foil or parchment-lined sheet and run them under the broiler for a minute or two – watch them closely, as they can burn quickly.

Use any cookie recipe you like – I tried classic chocolate chip as well as a double chocolate chip version. To do this, swap 1/4 cup cocoa for 1/4 cup flour in your favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe, or use the one below. Can you think of a better treat to tuck into a lunchbox, or have waiting after those first few days of school?

Chocolate Chip Cookie S’more Sandwiches

1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1-2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
about 12 large marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugars until pale and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the flour, baking soda and salt; stir until almost combined, then stir in the chocolate chips until well blended.

Drop the dough by the spoonful (or roll into 1”³ balls) and place on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing them a couple inches apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until golden around the edges. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Line the baking sheet with parchment or foil, place the marshmallows on the sheet and broil on high for 1-2 minutes, until puffed and golden. Place a toasted marshmallow between two warm cookies and squeeze gently to sandwich them together.

Makes about 1 dozen s’more sandwiches.

For double chocolate chip cookies: substitute 1/4 cup cocoa for 1/4 cup of the flour.
