I had an open box Kinnikinnick Smoreables in the cupboard that has been sitting there for too long, and I just can't throw them out, they just cost too much to do that, so it was time to get a little creative. Or have someone get creative for me, then I can convert the recipe and use it. ;) I found this recipe and knew I had to try it. There are some major changes, obviously making it gluten-free, but I added twice the amount of flour, more cinnamon, and of course made it dairy and soy friendly as well.
By the time I finished making them it was nearly bedtime, but my little ones still managed to down two cookies a piece, and my husband tried one and shockingly said, "Wow, these are really, pretty good!" And had at least 4 or 5 more. :) So, they are pretty good, and they do taste like a cookie version of s'mores.
I have this on Cybele Pascale's Allergy Friendly Friday post for March 25th, check out the other allergy-friendly links here. :)
(And yes, the marshmallows are even toasted on top...s'more perfection!)
1/2 cup dairy free (soy free if needed) margarine
1/2 cup palm oil shortening
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups gluten free flour blend
1 cup gf graham cracker crumbs (I used Kinnikinnick smoreables that I put through the food processor)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 package (~2 cups) Enjoy Life dairy-free chocolate chips (mini ones)
1-1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
5-6 Enjoy Life Rice Milk Chocolate Bars, chopped
Preheat oven to 375F. In a large mixing bowl, cream margarine, shortening, and sugars. Add vanilla and eggs, and mix well. In a separate bowl mix together flours, crumbs, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Slowly beat in the flour mixture until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips. Roll into 1-1 1/2" balls (or drop by tablespoons) and place onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 minutes and remove from oven. Push 2-3 pieces of candy bar and 2-3 marshmallows into each cookie. Return to the oven and bake for another 3-4 minutes until fully cooked. Cool cookies on a wire rack and store in an airtight container. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
