Thinking of Trying These

Thinking of Trying These

In early August I'm expecting out of town guests, a few family members will be traveling from Illinois to visit.  They will stay here in my home for about a week, they want to see Houston, so many of the days will be spent at tourist attractions.  However, on the days when we just want to spend time lounging, I was thinking that I may need to cook a meal or two.  There will be two younger family members, so I was thinking of hosting a s'more movie night.  You know the night when you turn on an awesome movie and eat junk food.  Naturally, when looking for something delightful, I opened my Pinterest.  And viola! I found the perfect recipe, Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie S'mores from one of my favorite food bloggers, Jon of The Candid Appetite.  Side note, his Tacos Americano is everything!  Anyway, these cookie s'more look delightful, I must try them. 

Ingredients
¾ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup graham cracker crumbs
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
⅔ cup light brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1¾ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chips
½ cup Nutella
1 cup large marshmallows

Directions
Preheat heat 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
1. In a large bowl, whisk or sift the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Stir in the egg and vanilla extract until well combined. Add the flour and stir until mixed through. Then stir in the oats and chocolate chips. 
3. Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop out the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches of space between each. Bake until lightly golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool slightly on the baking sheets before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. 
4. Spread half of the cookies, on the bottom, with Nutella. Working with one marshmallow at a time, pierce with a long wooden skewer and then toast on your stove top or with a kitchen torch. Sandwich together with two cookies.

Eat right away and enjoy!
