Chocolate Chip Smores

Serves 8   Active Time 25 min.   Total Time 35 min.



1/2 cup unsalted butter

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/4 cup all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips

Coarse salt, for sprinkling

Chocolate bars

Mini marshmallows





1. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the               butter. Once melted, continue to cook until it turns       golden brown. Swirl the pan occasionally so that it       browns evenly. Watch fairly closely, as it can go from     brown to burned quickly. When the color has turned     golden, remove from heat and poor into a shallow       dish. Let cool to room temperature.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a sheet pan         with parchment paper.

3. Beat the brown butter, sugar, and brown sugar on         medium high speed with an electric mixer for about     2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla extract.

4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda,       and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and mix until         just combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix           until incorporated.

5. Spoon by the tablespoon onto the prepared baking     sheet, leaving 2 inches in between each cookie.             Sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake until golden brown,       12-14 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.

6. To assemble s’mores sandwiches, turn oven down to     350 degrees.

7. Take half of the cookies and place them bottom             side up on the same sheet pan that was lined with         parchment paper.

8. Break the chocolate bars up, covering the cookie.         Place marshmallows on top of chocolate.

9. Bake in oven for about 5 minutes until the                       marshmallows start to melt.

10. Remove from oven and sandwich both halves of         the cookies together. Let cool slightly and serve.
