Okay, so it all started with a bag of marshmallows. I know... S'more always do start with marshmallows. But we had cake at home! And when you have cake at home, you don't go ahead and start working on a recipe that will end up being s'mores, do you? Not when you even try not to gain weight. So s'mores do not fall into the category that is a bit acceptable eating just a few bites. No no no. But oh boy... Look at this melted chocolate and smoky marshmallow bites on a deep dish cookie. Can you even attempt to say no??? I do not think so. This is something that shouts YES. Eat me. NOW.
This recipe will make 6 giant cookies. Like mini s'mores cake. Or s'mores pie. Whatev what you call them. They're insanely good and that is what counts. So share one with your bestie or hubby or kid and then grab your running shoes and hit the pavement. Or whatever you feel like doing as burning those calories :) I am about to pop in an insanity workout. I can't wait... :P
S'mores Deep Dish Pie
inspired by Betty Crocker's recipe
3/4 cup crushed graham crackers - I used dry oat cookies
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup brown cane sugar
110 grams butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup chocolate chips
12 marshmallows - cut into thirds
Preheat your oven to 170C.
Combine flour, baking soda, salt and the crushed crackers together. Mix the butter with the sugar until creamy. Add in the egg and vanilla. Then mix in the dry ingredients. Using a muffin top pan, place the dough into each holes.
Don't worry to shape them. They will spread nicely to the holes. Bake them for 12 minutes. When they're ready, I waited 5 minutes for them to cool and popped them out.
Put them on a baking sheet and place the chocolate chips on top so they can melt.
I used Lindt chocolate disks because there's no way to purchase chocolate chips around here... Wait for them to melt nicely on top of the cookies.
Then put the marshmallow bits on top of the melted chocolate.
Set your oven to broil. Turn it up to 230C. When your oven reached the heat, place the baking sheet the closest to the top and keep the cookies in for 1 minute. But watch carefully so the marshmallows wouldn't burn. Take them out of the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes. I know...Hard! And enjoy!
