s'mores always remind me of summer
When I was nine, I went to horse back riding overnight camp. This is the true inspiration behind this S'mores Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie. The camp was up in the Poconos and the heat was scorching during the day, but fairly pleasant at night. They taught me how to ride the horses and how to take care of them and feed them etc. We'd take the horses out on trails and then go swimming. It was so much fun.
On the last day of camp, we made toasted marshmallows and put them on graham crackers with chocolate - which I later came to know were called s'mores. I loved the gooey charred taste of the marshmallows. That caramelized, slightly burnt flavor complimented the chocolate and graham cracker SO well. So, I figured why not combine the two to make this S'mores Stuffed Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie? It worked out and here we are!
why are s'mores called s'mores?
S'mores is simply a shortened version of "some more". The term first popped up in a cookbook in the 1920s but didn't stick until around the 1950s.
What's even more cool, on par with my camp theme, is there the S'mores were actually coined as a recipe for campers because it was fun to roast marshmallows over a camp fire. Also, because the ingredients were so simple and didn't spoil easily, it became an ideal treat for outdoor activities. So grab your simple ingredients and make this S'mores Stuffed Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie!
how do you make a S'mores Stuffed Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie?
It's super simple and actually quite fun to make this S'mores Stuffed Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie. First make the chocolate chip cookie dough and use half of it to line the bottom of a cast iron skillet. Top the cookie dough with graham crackers and marshmallows and additional chocolate chips. Then cover the marshmallows with the remainder of the chocolate chip cookie dough.
Bake the skillet cookie for about 20-25 minutes, until the top is slightly browned/golden. Here's the tricky part - let the skillet cookie rest for 30 minutes. The cookie is still cooking on the inside and if you cut it too quickly, it'll be super gooey. That is of course, if you prefer it to be gooey, go right ahead and dig in!
