I blame these cookies on Matt.
And really, you should too. So if when you make them, and if when you eat a couple12, it’s his fault, not mine.
Sorry, Matt, I still love you.
You see, I got this wonderful assortment of chocolate in the mail from GHIRARDELLI and didn’t know what to do with it. But then Matt suggested s’mores and I remembered this recipe from Tracey’s blog. She said they were the best s’mores cookies of every recipe she had tried. And if you read her blog, you know to trust her. Just look at this post, the girl knows what she’s doing!
So I decided to kick the cookies up a notch with the Intense Dark Sea Salt Soiree chocolate in place of your typical milk chocolate. The hint of bitterness from the higher cocoa percentage and salty bite makes the cookies a little more mature in flavor. The crunch from the almonds then adds a nice texture balance to the chewy cookie.
Go try it for yourself, and when you lose count of how many cookies you’ve inhaled, just remember that it’s not my fault.

What are you blaming on someone else right now?
These look delicious! What adult wouldn’t love smore’s cookies?! I have a feeling these are something kids and adults would devour 12 or more of ;)!
wow! I’m so impressed how you used those chocolates! I just ate them straight from the package! :)
Eating chocolate straight is always a good option!
I had my eye on these cookies – I love what you did with them! Great use of your chocolate!
Oh my gosh, I am so making these. I am a smores nut!
ahahahaha, I thought by grown up you meant you splashed a bottle of vodka into them or something! :) I like the bittersweet chocolate MUCH better. I totally believe you when you say I’d go crazy on them–cookies are my thing and I love me some dark chocolate.
These look amazing! I was wondering how you kept the marshmallows whole because mine normally melt everywhere but just adding them for the last couple of minutes makes sense. Can’t wait to try them!
Oh, my! They looks so amazingly delicious!
This was probably the most dangerous post I’ve seen all week. Smores are a TOTAL weakness of mine…and everything is a weakness of mine SQUARED in cookie form!
Delicious. I made similar a few months ago. I usually share what I bake. I did not share these!
I can say first hand that these are delicious!!! Had one last night and maybe another half this morning ;)
So glad you liked them! And so impressed that you only ate that many so far!
So, I can blame any weight gained from these insanely good cookies on Matt, right?
These were some good cookies. Now I’m having trouble buttoning my pants…
I love that you used the sea salt chocolate in these! Perfection! Happy weekend my friend!
yuuuuuum. i love anything smores!
Just when I thought I was over the smores phase… you go have to go and shove another deliciously irresistible smores creation in my face . But I forgive you. :)
I can see why you would want s’more after eating these! I bet they taste as wonderful as they look!
Hahahaha love it!
I’m not ready to give up on s’mores just yet and this is perfect!
Thanks so much for the sweet words, I’m blushing over here :) Your cookies look fantastic, love the modifications you made. My husband was kind enough to eat most of these cookies when I made them, or else I’d have done some serious damage…
Oh my god these sound amazing! I could totally go for one right now, would help me get through the rest of this work day!
Oh these are so cute and I love the grown up spin. Bookmarking to make these in the near near future. I love anything smores- I have been obssesed with Smores Ice Cream sandwiches for the past month too. LOL
Wow — great recipe! I’ve had such a craving for s’mores lately.
Fantastic. Love love love it!
Oh my goodness these cookies look soooo good. I’ll take the entire batch please! :)
Love your idea! How creative.
… and I’m drooling over them. They look amazing!
