S'mores Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

It’s the last day of S’mores Week 2017!!!

Amanda and I have hoped that you enjoyed the fun S’mores recipes that we shared this week. We have always had a blast sharing these recipes. I an’t believe it was already our 5th year doing it.

I wanted to really go all out this year with fun things like S’mores Monkey Bread, the Boozy S’mores Milkshake I shared yesterday and I wanted to end the week with a bang! So I decided to hit the scales hard with a fun combination of elements to make this crazy treat.

Let’s go… Chocolate chip cookies! Nutella! Marshmallow! Ice Cream!

Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner!

S’mores Cake Mix Cookies

S'mores Cake Mix Cookies

There was a photoshoot in our house yesterday!

S'mores Cake Mix Cookies

I previously wrote about how we organized our kitchen with some awesome stuff from Rev-A-Shelf, so they came out and photographed

They were here for the whole day doing set up and getting overall kitchen pictures and pictures of the products in use. It was such a cool experience.

I can’t wait to check out the photos once they are done being edited.

S'mores Cake Mix Cookies

Anyway, have you made cake mix cookies before?

I am so addicted to them and how easy they are to whip up. They are my new go to sweet treat activity with Autumn. I now stock up on cake mix when they are on sale. If the timing is right I can get them 10 for $10. Just a few affordable ingredients that just need mixing that a 3 year old can easily go.

Obviously, making cake mix cookies is fun but the best part with these S’mores Cake Mix Cookies is the fun goodies you add ino the mix and on the top. How can you resist a chocolate cookie with chocolate chips, pieces of graham cracker, and itty bitty marshmallow bits??! You just can’t!

The cookie base has a nice fudgy texture and the added s’mores fix-in’s are the best finishing touch to bring that camp fire experience indoors. Be sure to grab a glass of milk and enjoy a cookie or two.

S’mores Monkey Bread

Do you know what doesn’t help you loose the baby weight?!

S’MORES WEEK!!!!!!

But it’s been worth it. How can it not be?!?!

Chocolate… check!

Marshmallow… check!

Graham Cracker… check!

And I really needed to step my game up this year as it is the 5th (!!!) year that Amanda and I have done S’mores week together. Holy cow!!

The funniest part of this whole thing is that I used to hate S’mores and now I love them. I just never liked the traditional S’more that much  since the graham cracker was so crunchy and the chocolate never melted much so it was just blah. The real star of the trio was the marshmallow, but now that I have mastered my S’more making techniques and have been having a blast making all these different variations.

Now that we have been doing this for 5 years, we have each made 25 S’mores recipes. Plus, some extras that are just in our S’mores Addiction Ebook, that we created last year. Clearly, we love s’mores. Maybe that should be our next matching tattoo that we get together? ha!

This S’mores Monkey Bread doesn’t disappoint!

I made this monkey bread and had to get it out of my house ASAP for fear of eating way, way too much of it. The flavor and texture was great from the S’mores mix in’s that are combined throughout the monkey bread. But then it gets even better from the toppings. That quick fudgy sauce is the real deal finisher for this bread.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

S’mores Monkey Bread

Makes 12 servings

Ingredients

For the monkey bread

  • 2 biscuit cans (1 lb each)
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 6 graham crackers broken into small pieces
  • 1 Cup chocolate chips
  • 1 Cup mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 Cup marshmallow bits
  • 12 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the topping

  • 1/2 Cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 Cup heavy cream

Process

  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Grease a 12-cup bundt pan.
  2. Cut each biscuit into 8 pieces. (I suggest using kitchen shears)
  3. Combine the sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, graham cracker pieces, chocolate chips, and marshmallows to a very large bowl.
  4. Add the biscuit pieces in batches and mix to coat.
  5. Pour the coated biscuit pieces into the bundt pan with the s’more mixture. As you do this you want to make sure the graham cracker pieces, chocolate chips, and marshmallows are evenly distributed throughout the bundt pan.
  6. Pour the melted butter evenly over the monkey bread mixture.
  7. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Rotate in the oven half way through.
  8. Just prior to the monkey bread being done baking, make the sauce by combining the chocolate chips and heavy cream. Heat over low heat, stirring as it melts. (You can even do this in the microwave by heating for 15 second intervals at 50% heat, stirring until smooth).
  9. When the monkey bread is done, immediately flip it out onto your serving dish.
  10. Top with the chocolate sauce, graham cracker crumbs, and mini marshmallows.

(Plus, along the way we have just become great friends. We even have matching pineapple tattoos that we got together this past May!)

As we decided to do another week of S’mores recipes on our blog this summer (for the 3rd time!) we decided to amp things up and self publish an ecookbook of all things S’mores.

Smores Cocktail Sprinkles Marshmallows

So we bought insane amounts of chocolate bars, graham crackers, and marshmallows and got elbow deep in the s’mores madness. Chocolate of all kinds from chocolate bars to chocolate chips and milk chocolate to dark chocolate. Graham crackers and graham cracker crumbs. And marshmallows of all shapes, sizes, and flavors!

At this point my husband doesn’t want to see a S’more for a very long time since I tested so many recipes. ha!!

So what’s inside!?!

smores ebook.indd

We rounded up our S’mores recipes and added another 14 recipes that we have not published before to add to the collection of delicious recipes. In the end we created book that has over 45 s’mores recipes. Perfect for someone with a big sweet tooth!

smores ebook.indd smores ebook.indd

It includes our previously shared recipes from our past years of S’mores Week, the nely published ones from this year, and new ones. There is everything from homemade marshmallows to cinnamon rolls stuffed with S’mores goodies to S’mores cocktails and S’mores fudge.

If that all sounds great to you then please buy our new ebook! We time, love, and effort into this joint venture so that we could share our love of S’mores with everyone. We worked hard on our recipes and putting together the book (all 55 pages!) so we hope everyone enjoys it.

The ecookbook is live now for PURCHASE!!

Thanks so much !!
