Homemade Smores cookies are my latest easy family treat. OH MY, is there anything much that is yummier than melted chocolate and ooey gooey marshmallow? I can’t think of much else that is as melt in your mouth tasty as this little chocolate flavour punch.
Nothing evokes a camping state of mind faster than a mention of homemade campfire smores. But, let’s be honest it’s not always super simple to set up a campfire and start roasting those smores. So what’s a sweet tooth to do? Well, how about smores cookies?
Homemade Smores Cookies
What’s your favourite camping memory? We have a few here. Often they revolve around hanging out after dinner sitting by a campfire with family and telling stories or singing silly songs. That’s often when we would get the smores ingredients out and roast them too.
Whether you are hardcore campers or wannabes these homemade smores cookies are the perfect treat. I have one word of warning though. I have found these yummy little wafer cookies at Bulk Barn in the past, but they seem to be there only occasionally. If you spy them, pick some up fast to make these.
Homemade Smores Cookies
- 1 bag Large white marshmallows
- 1 cup chocolate chips milk chocolate
- 30 individual wafer cookies
- Turn oven on to 350 CCut the marshmallows in half for best results
- Set bottom wafers out in rows
- Add the marshmallows to each waferSet some chocolate chips on each marshmallow
- Add the wafer tops to make these look like tiny sandwiches.
- If the wafers slip and slide off the top carefully remove the cookies sheet full of individual cookies after chocolate melts a bit and press down and hold each for a few moments until the gooey mess starts to stick together.
- Remove from heat after 5 to 10 minutes. Timing depends on how well the top cookie wafer sticks. You might need to remove them and press down on tops then reinsert into oven at five minute mark so timing may take longer as a result.
Indoor Smores Cookies for the Win
The the kids were small I used to do some fun activities with them in the winter, or even when we were all home sick. Occasionally we set up a small tent and camped out in the living room at home. Later on we built igloos in the backyard and played on the climber even in the winter months because kids need a lot of physical activity.
This is a treat that you could easily build into a fun camping day in your home in the middle of January. They are meant to be a simple small treat and not a meal of course. But, if you are having a quiet day at home and the kids are bored perhaps you can get them involved making these small campfire snacks.
