Chocolate Marshmallow Meltaways {No Bake S’mores Cookies}

This weekend has been a whirlwind.  Dentist appointments for the boys.  I had a mom heart attack moment a couple weeks ago.  Every time I think about it, I see Eddie’s face bouncing off the side of the bath tub.  I have shivers.  At least the dentist said he’s okay and that unless he’s part of the 1%, he should be just fine. The break didn’t reach his nerves and it’s a clean break.  THANK GOD!  I let out the biggest sigh of relief.

Otto did awesome. I was worried he might freak out, but the dentist and dental hygienists were WICKED NICE.  Chalk another one up to my mom.  First she recommends the best pediatrician ever, and now a rockin’ dentist.

So to celebrate I thought cookies were in order.  Better yet, no-bake cookies.  No making the house hot for some gratification.  Instead 10 minutes of finger licking goodness and a few dishes – which go in the dish washer.  We’re going for as little effort as possible.

Prep time
Total time
 
Serves: About 24 cookies
Ingredients
  • 1¼ cups graham-cracker crumbs (about ¾ of a packet)
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon, optional
  • 7 ounces Marshmallow Fluff
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Chocolate syrup
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, mix the crumbs, peanut butter, maple syrup, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Everything will come together to form a stable dough.
  2. Roll dough into 1″ balls and place onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Using a tablespoon, flatten the cookie balls so they have a little cup in the center.
  3. Fill each cookie cup with some marshmallow fluff, about ½ teaspoon each. You want to use less fluff than you think you need. The fluff will settle and run out of the cookie if you use too much. *Spray some nonstick cooking spray on your spoon to help the fluff slide off easier*
  4. I spread the fluff into the cookie cups with my hands after spraying my fingers with non-stick cooking spray. This way the cookies will hold the chocolate more smoothly.
  5. Pour some chocolate syrup into a small bowl. Using a spoon, drizzle syrup over cookie tops. I didn’t trust the chocolate syrup bottle enough. All I could see was a big glob hitting a cookie and presentation points going out the window. That’s it!

 

Now you have yummy cookies, the oven stayed off, and your mouth (and your kids’ mouths – if you’re sharing) are happy.  The syrup really gives the cookies that caramelized campfire taste.  Yum!
Keep these bad boys in the fridge so they set up and the fluff doesn’t run over from the heat of a  summer kitchen.

    Wow, these look fantastic! Much tastier than the traditional blobby no-bake cookies (which are also good, but get boring fast). I wonder if you could toast the top of the marshmallow with a brulee torch?
