Day 2: Samoa S'mores
December 14, 2017
It’s a marshmallow world that we live in!
So, that’s what we’re using in our cookies today!
Welcome to Day 2: Samoa S’mores Cookies!
I put you guys to work yesterday right off the bat with our Brownie Biscotti. But, I’m making up for it today by giving you a 2 ingredient no bake cookie.
These cookies are simpler than simple, but they’re still kind of a show stopper. They’re so delicious!
Your two ingredients are coconut caramel shortbread cookies and marshmallows. That’s it!
I call these Samoa cookies because the most popular brand of these types of cookies are Girl Scout’s Cookies. Even though the ones we get on the East Coast are now called Caramel DeLites, they’ll always be Samoas to me.
If you haven’t gotten your umpteen boxes of cookies from the Girl Scouts this year, Keebler also makes an almost identical cookie called Coconut Dreams. Use whatever variation of this cookie you can find. Some stores, like Giant and Food Lion, even have store brand knock offs.
We broil some marshmallows to give them the charred feel of a s’morey marshmallow without having to build a fire, and we sandwich it between 2 cookies. Recipe complete.
If you want to make the cookies stretch a little farther, you can cut them in half. They’re amazing either way!
They also will last in an airtight container for 3 or 4 days, but that's only if you and your loved ones don't devour them first.
And done. We’re 2 for 2! So, here’s a reminder of what we’ve made so far…
Day 1: Brownie Biscotti
Enjoy, and let’s eat!
Serves: 14 cookie halves Print
1 pack coconut caramel shortbread cookies (I use Samoa or Caramel DeLites Girl Scout Cookies, but there are also Coconut Dreams by Keebler)
4 marshmallows, cut in half
Preheat oven to broil. Line a small baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray with cooking spray. Place marshmallows on the sheet cut side down. Place under broiler until the marshmallows start to brown, 1-2 minutes. Watch them closely so they don't burn.
Use a small offset spatula or butter knife to transfer a marshmallow halve on to one cookie, chocolate side up. Top with another cookie to make a sandwich. Using a sharp knife, cut in half, if desired. Repeat until all of the cookies and marshmallows are used. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.
*These cookies can actually be store for 3-4 days (if they last that long).
*Cutting them in half helps to stretch them and makes them a little easier to eat, but you don't necessarily have to cut them.
*Don't skip the step of lining the tray with foil and spraying it with cooking spray before you broil the marshmallows. You'll have a sticky mess if you don't do it!
*Girl's Scout Cookies only come with 15 in a box. I don't know how many are in the Keebler pack. Assuming it's more, use as many marshmallows as you need to make a whole pack.
