If you know me, then you know that I will talk to anyone that will listen about food.
All. Day. Long.
Actually, I’m not sorry.
Food is my life. I live it. I breathe it. I eat it.
So naturally I am quite passionate about food and cooking and eating.
Weeeellllll, last summer I was on a camping trip with friends. They brought stuff for s’mores, because well that’s what you do when go camping. And in my book, what you do when you want to bond with friends, new and old.
While we were roasting and bonding and eating, naturally the conversation drifted to me and my
obsession with love of s’mores.
One of my friends mentioned she saw some sort of recipe on Pinterest for s’mores that didn’t even have graham crackers and used marshmallow fluff. She just couldn’t get over that the recipe could be called a s’more when it didn’t involve marshmallows, classic graham crackers and a plain chocolate bar.
But since I am hip and trendy, and you know obsessed with s’mores, I got it. I love almost any treat inspired by that ooey, gooey flavor combination (evident by the countless s’mores recipes on this blog)!
I also love taking the concept of a s’more → a sweet cracker or cookie → chocolate → marshmallow → heated → smashed together… and changing it up a bit. In fact, a few years ago I hosted a S’mores Party and shared a ton of ideas to change up that traditional s’more.
Today’s s’more idea came about after making the Oreo Peanut Butter S’mores on Tuesday and the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough S’mores from Wednesday. I decided those two s’mores needed to get together and have a baby so I created…..
Chocolate Chip Cookie and Nutella S’mores!
I can’t get enough of this s’more concoction! I used warm soft baked chocolate chip cookies (actually, I cut out smaller cookies from a cookie cake), which I think is essential to this recipe. The soft cookie and melted marshmallows reminded me of an oatmeal cream pie. Plus since the cookie is already soft, these can be made ahead of time and warmed right before serving (or served at room temperature) for a fun and unique treat to serve at an indoor dinner party.

2 ‘soft baked’ chocolate chip cookies*
2 large marshmallows
1-2 tablespoons chocolate hazelnut spread (such as Nutella)
Place cookies on a microwave safe plate and microwave for 12-15 seconds or until warm. Alternatively, you can bake the cookies in a 350 degree oven for 2-3 minutes or until cookies are warmed.
Once cookies are slightly warmed, spread ½ to 1 tablespoons chocolate hazelnut spread on the bottom side of each cookie.
Thread marshmallows onto the end of roasting stick and roast over camp fire or under oven broiler until marshmallows are toasted and begin to turn golden brown. Alternatively, marshmallows can be microwaved for 8 to 10 seconds, or until puffed.
Place toasted marshmallows on top of one chocolate chip cookie smeared with chocolate hazelnut spread. Top toasted marshmallows with remaining chocolate chip cookie, chocolate hazelnut spread side down. Gently press until marshmallow and chocolate begins to ooze out the sides. Serve immediately.
Make ahead: Since using a soft baked cookie, these s’mores can be made ahead of time and warmed slightly right before serving (or served at room temperature) for a fun and unique treat to serve at an indoor dinner party.
*Note: Use a round biscuit cutter to cut cookies out of a large chocolate chip cookie cake if you have trouble finding ‘soft baked’ chocolate chip cookies.
