You know, National S’more Day was last week. August 10th, to be exact.
I really wanted to post a timely s’mores recipe, but Kenny and I were away. And not only were we away, but we were also at a hotel hosting the Girl Scouts for National S’more Day. Talk about hitting pay dirt! There were s’more kits and fire pits everywhere.
Now that I’m back, I wanted to pay my respects to what is truly a marvelous holiday. Sorry if I’m a few days late! But these s’mores cookie cups should be worth it. They’re chocolate chip cookies filled and topped with everything you need in a s’more: the chocolate and marshmallow love. I’m excited to have these in the house!
The other day, I had a good belly laugh, and I really needed it. I’m sure you understand. They can be hard to come by, those hearty belly laughs, but they’re the best.
Kenny has this habit of sneezing his way through the first few hours of the morning. Some mornings are more extreme than others, and so I often don’t even notice. When I do, I usually just make sure he doesn’t have a cold before I give him a kiss.
Anyway, the kids and I were sitting at the kitchen table having a peaceful breakfast when Kenny sneezed. He was walking around gathering laundry, and he sneezed again. And again. And again. The poor guy was just on a roll.
For some reason, the kids and I found this to be massively hilarious. I can’t really explain why, but the symphonic sneezing had us in stitches. We laughed until our sides hurt. Well, except for Kenny. He was waiting for one of us to say, “Bless you.” Which we did eventually.
It just felt good to laugh, especially with my children. I have to be the disciplinarian so often, which means that I don’t always have the ability to just burst into laughter. I should do it more often, though, because it’s a quick and easy way to get some therapy.
Do you know what else is quick and easy? Yep, these s’more cookie cups!
I used refrigerated cookie dough. It was the gluten-free kind, too. Immaculate Baking makes the best GF cookie dough! The inside is filled with a large piece of Hershey’s chocolate and half a marshmallow, and then the whole thing is topped with the other marshmallow half. Inside the oven, the marshmallow inside melts, but that just makes for more gooey goodness. And that flavor remains!
There’s plenty of time in life to be serious. Sometimes it’s better to let your guard down and be silly. Having an easy treat along the way doesn’t hurt, either. After all, it’s much cheaper than a therapist’s office!
1 package refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough (16 oz.), GF optional
12 marshmallows, halved
6 Hershey bar pieces (from the jumbo-sized bar)
- Preheat the oven to 350. Coat half of a muffin tin (6 spots) with cooking spray. Set aside.
- Flatten the cookie dough into discs. Place half of them (6) into each of the prepared muffin tin spots.
- Put a Hershey bar piece on top, followed by a halved marshmallow. Press another flattened cookie dough disc on top, pressing down to flatten the whole thing.
- Place another marshmallow half on top.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes until the marshmallow is browning and the cookie cups are golden.
- Serve warm and gooey or cooled. Whatever you prefer! Store in an airtight container.

My husband also has a knack of sneezing in the morning and sometimes after bathing – and I can’t help feeling amused all the time! These s’mores cookie cups is the perfect marriage between cookies and marshmallows, look so delicious!
It’s pretty funny. Let’s mock them all!
August 10 is also my mom’s birthday, so I guess I will be making these for her next year! (After I do a few test runs, of course. For, you know, research!) 🙂

Poor Kenny for sure. The guy just can’t stop sneezing every morning. People are so funny!
First of all a good fit of laughter is good for the soul! And I’m sure Kenny didn’t mind being the muse to your laughter. 😉 Second, you hosted the Girl Scouts for National S’more Day?! Ummm how cool is THAT?! I hope they gave you a life supply of cookies… or at least a weeks worth! Third, it is NEVER too late to celebrate national s’mores day, especially if you are doing it in cookie cup style! These are awesome, Mir! So creative and delicious! Cheers, friend!

Nah, he didn’t mind. And I’ll spend that holiday with the Girl Scouts every year!
“s’more kits and fire pits everywhere” and “chocolate chip cookie cups filled and topped with… chocolate and marshmallow” I think I died and stumbled onto your post and invariably dropped into my idea of heaven! GOSH Mir – these S’more cups are insane! And heck yeah – I’m all about letting my “guard down and be(ing) silly” though sometimes, I think I do it a tad too much – oh well – life’s short so here’s to eating dessert in the form of S’more cookie cups and belly laughs! Happy Monday to ya!

You can’t be silly too much, Shashi. That means you’re fun and awesome. Keep it up!
Ahh, s’mores. I love it in all of its forms. I usually only have cookie cup recipes around Christmas, and I don’t know why! I need about five of these right now!

It was fun. And then we had these, so life is good!
Laughter is indeed the best medicine! 🙂 But hold up, how did I miss National S’mores Day? And did you really stay at a hotel with a bunch of girl scouts celebrating the aforementioned National S’mores Day? I mean how lucky can you get?? I hope they let you join! Or at least let you graze on some leftovers. I saw the news about the new girl scout s’mores cookies…sounds kinda fun. But not near as fun as these cups! Great idea, Mir!
