No Bake Cookie Dough S’mores

Summer time means camping and camp fires, but sometimes you just want to enjoy a gourmet s’mores without all the smoke and fire.  These No Bake Cookie Dough S’mores are a fun twist on a traditional classic.

 This past week my husband and I started working out together.  Each morning we head to the gym together to do this crazy thing.  It involves running, walking, weights, crunches, lunges…all words that just shouldn’t be in my vocabulary.  It all ends in sweating and muscles that hurt.  But all the cookie eating has started to show, and I am determined to get back in all those cute clothes sitting in my closet.

That and the fact that we signed up to do a Warrior Dash in August.  Why do I keep torturing myself in mud races?  Does anyone remember when I shared these Take 5 Bars and how I was going to do a Tough Mudder?  And yes, we finished the race and had a blast!  I must be crazy or something to do this again.

 This year’s mud run should be a whole lot of fun too.  Our oldest son is old enough to participate, and he is so excited to run this with us.  But if I am going to even think about running and doing obstacles next month, I have to start getting ready now.

I’m sure that if I gave up this crazy habit called baking it would make this so much easier.  I take that back.  Nothing makes running and weight lifting any easier.

 I’m sure the week of trying to work out and eat healthy is what inspired this crazy treat.  Trying to remove sugar from my diet seems to just make the dessert ideas happen even more.  I bought the new S’more Mallows last month and have been wanting to make something.   Then I bought the square graham crackers and s’mores just seemed obvious.  For the past few weeks, I have been thinking of how I could add a fun twist to indoor s’mores.

I had this brilliant thought that cookie dough would be great…after I made and photographed them I realized that so many other people before me had the same exact thought.  Great minds all think alike I guess!

One thing that I did do differently was to dip the entire thing in chocolate and top them with sprinkles.  Sprinkles just make everything so much better!    I recommend having a sprinkle assistant when making these.  My daughter came in the kitchen the other night when I was trying to dip and sprinkle.  She was so excited to help out with the sprinkles.  I did have to stop her from pouring the sprinkles on top.  I buy a very large bottle of sprinkles from Gordon’s Food Service, and I could just envision her pouring the entire thing on top of one.  Even with her using her hands to toss sprinkles on, we ended up with the tops being very sprinkle-ized!  Along with our floor :-)

These No Bake Cookie Dough S’mores are a perfect way to enjoy s’mores on rainy days or hot days that you don’t want to mess with a fire.    They also would make great birthday party treats if you had a camping theme.  I personally like to eat them after doing my crazy insane work out…but that’s just me.

No Bake Cookie Dough S’mores

Prep Time: 1 hour

Yield: 10 s'mores

No Bake Cookie Dough S’mores

Chocolate chip cookie dough, marshmallows, and graham crackers wrapped in a chocolate coating. A fun indoor s'mores without the campfire.

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
pinch salt
3/4 cup miniature chocolate chips
5 S'more Mallows (large flat marshmallows from Jet Puffed)
20 graham cracker squares
1 package chocolate CandiQuik (16 oz.)
sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Cream together the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Add the flour and salt and mix well. Stir in the chips by hand. Set aside.
  2. Cut the marshmallows in half. Place the cut side down on a graham cracker square. Take a ball of dough and mold it into the shape and size of the marshmallow. Place on top of the marshmallow and top with another graham cracker square. Press down lightly.
  3. Place the unwrapped tray of CandiQuik in the microwave. Heat for 1 minute. Stir. Heat again for 20-30 seconds. Stir until melted and creamy.
  4. Using a fork, place the s'mores one at a time into the melted chocolate. Use a spoon to spread the chocolate all over the crackers. Gently remove using the fork. Hold over the chocolate tray and tap the wrist that is holding the chocolate. Do this very carefully so the cracker does not fall off into the chocolate again. When all the excess chocolate has dripped off, place on a piece of wax paper and top with sprinkles. Let set. Store in a loosely sealed container. Makes 10 s'mores.

Notes

You can also place the graham cracker with the marshmallow in the microwave for 4-5 seconds before putting the cookie dough on top. Then dip in chocolate following the directions above.

    Mmm, those look super yummy! I love s’more, but I hate making them. I’d rather just roast the marshmallow, lol! These I will gladly make! Good luck on the training! You’ll be glad you trudged on through! Such a fun thing to do as a family.

    Agh I started riding my bike each morning to work and although I know it is good for me (I barely work out) it makes my legs want to fall off lol. And it’s been SO freaking hot, a no-bake recipe like this is JUST what the doctor ordered. ;) So thanks Dr. Jocelyn heehee!

    Holy smokes. Good luck in your race. Sounds like fun and pain, all at the same time. But who wants to give up baking? (And I would be sad if you did!) I started Tae Kwon Do last week for the same reason – too many sweets, too much baking. It’s kicking my butt.

    I pinned these, of course, and will be making these very soon. To eat after TKD =o)
