Can I have s'more cookies please?!

Last Thursday, our friend Adam turned 24 (Yes, that means he was in 6th grade when Aaron and I were graduating high school) WOW!!!  But, age means nothing when you're awesome, and we think he's awesome!  That's beside the point though.  On Saturday night, he and Ashley had a big fiesta themed birthday party at their apartment.  Everyone brought a little something to share, so this time I decided to try a new rendition of my oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies and went with this genius recipe for s'more stuffed chocolate chip cookies instead!  Heeellloooo!  

I know that these aren't necessarily at all fiesta themed, but who cares, right?!  S'mores in chocolate chip cookies?!  I only wish I had thought of it first!

I will say that I tweaked the recipe a bit, just because I didn't have all the right ingredients and knew I wouldn't be able to get some of them (considering I live in Korea), but the cookies still turned out to die for and a teensy bit more healthy than the original recipe, too!

2 cups plus 2 tbsp of all-purpose flour (I actually used Wheat Flour, because it's what I had in the fridge.)
½ tsp baking soda
6 tbsp of I can't Believe It's Not Butter spread
1 cup brown sugar, packed
½ cup granulated sugar
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 chopped up Ghana Chocolate Bar (as a chocolate chip substitute) 
1 chocolate bar (for the s'more layering)
8 Korean Lotus brand caramelised biscuits (as the graham cracker substitute)
7 marshmallows (snipped in 1/2)

  1. To make the cookie dough: Whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl; set aside. In the bowl mix the margarine and sugars until thoroughly combined.  Beat in the egg, single yolk, and vanilla until combined.  Add the dry ingredients and mix it until it's thuroughly combined – the batter should look a little lumpy.  Stir in the chopped up chocolate bar.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. To assemble and bake: scoop a spoon full of cookie dough onto the parchment paper. Put 1/2 of a caramelised cracker on top of it, pressing down slightly. Then put one piece of chocolate and 1/2 of a marshmallow on top. Then take another spoon full of the cookie dough and place it on top. Do your best to close the gap between the cookie dough on the top and bottom, resembling a cookie dough brick! :) 
  4. Space the cookies at least 4 inches apart on the two baking sheets.  Bake for 20-24 minutes or until the tops and edges are lightly browned and the edges just lift off the pan with a spatula.  Transfer the baking sheets to wire racks and cool the cookies on the sheets for at least 5 minutes.  
  5. The cookies won't look beautiful... mine actually looked kind of ugly, so I cut them into 1/4's (also known as bite size). I personally like how you can see the inside of the cookie this way and people always love them because they don't feel like they're eating a WHOLE calorie filled cookie, even though they usually do end up eating the equivalent! :)
So, here you go!  This too could be yours, with the just the right ingredients and about 45 free minutes to play in the kitchen!   BTW: This is about 1/2 of the finished batch.

I'm sorry, did I hear you say you wanted a closer look?!  
I understand... you can almost taste them can't you?!

Sad news for me, or good news, depending on how you look at it, is that every last cookie bite got scooped up at the party last night and none made it home in my bag.  Just might have to make another batch for my co-workers this week... :)
