I love the big goodie bag!! I had to sneak in a small bag of m&m's peanut butter and mini Reese's for my chocolate peanut butter cupcakes.
For the S'mores I adapted a recipe fromThe girl who ate everything;
Preheat the oven to 180c
155g butter (room temperature)
205g packed dark brown sugar (I have had a pack sitting in my baking cupboard but you can use light brown as well
110g golden caster sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
230g all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
24 Graham Cracker squares
Depending how chocolatey and marshmallowy you want your S'mores;
150g of dark chocolate
Half to a pack of mini marshmallows
Mix all the dry ingredients together (flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon)
In a standing mixer, cream the butter with the sugars. Once done, add the eggs and vanilla extract followed by the flour mix on low speed. Despite using dark sugar my mixture was very light and fluffy;
Christy's recipe (and most recipes) call for Hershey's chocolate but I went with what I had which was Green and Black's 70% dark chocolate. I didn't have the energy to go out and get Hershey's plus I LOVE G&B's chocolate. Almost as much as Marabou chocolate.
I used my rolling pin to break the chocolate bar into small pieces and folded them along with the marshmallows into the mixture. I then spooned them onto the cracker squares.
Bake for 5 minutes, meanwhile break up the rest of the chocolate you have into their own squares, take the cookies out and push a square into each cookie. Bake for another 5-7 minutes. I took mine out after 5 minutes because I didn't want them to brown more or worse, burn!
I haven't had any cookies for ages and these were so nice that I never want to buy one ever again. Proof that homemade delights are always so much nicer than shop bought.
We had two each whilst warm and they were delicious. The different textures of the cracker and the gooeyness of chocolate and marshmallows are great.
These will be the perfect film snack (bribe) for when I force my boyfriend to watch the Audrey Hepburn DVD box set he bought me:0)
Don't forget, this week is National Cupcake Week! So plenty of posts to come.
