Welcome to this month’s installment of the Secret Recipe Club. Did you know I’ve been making recipes with the SRC since June 2011, almost three years ago? I’ve only missed one month in all that time, too! You can see all my Secret Recipe Club reveals here. (I just browsed back through my last few and oh man … I totally want Oxtail Stew again.)

My assigned blog for this month was Things I Make (for Dinner). This is only Sarah’s second month in the SRC. Welcome to the party, Sarah! Hope you’re enjoying it!

Sarah is a married woman, enjoying life with her husband in Ontario, Canada. She loves to cook in what little time she has and shared recipes from many different sources – but especially loves Everyday Food, from what I could tell on her site!

I needed a dessert recipe for an Easter celebration at church, so I made these S’Mores Cookies, but with my own little twist on them. I was having a harder time getting my dough to stick together, so I shoved it into mini-muffin cups and stuck the chocolate inside. I didn’t use enough chocolate, though – so use bigger chocolate chips or a more generous portion than shown here. I’ll admit I had a late start this month so I didn’t get a chance to re-make the recipe like I would have liked to.

Mr. V tested these warm from the oven, though, and really liked them. With the addition of a little more chocolate (my fault totally, not Sarah’s!) they will be perfect party bites! Or go ahead and make the cookies as Sarah shows on her site.

S’Mores Cookie Cups

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: about 36 mini-muffin cups

S’Mores Cookie Cups

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c. old-fashioned oats
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 c. whole-wheat flour
  • 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. butter, softened
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • about 1/2 c. chocolate chips or chunks
  • 12 large marshmallows, cut into thirds with kitchen shears

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350F.

Pulse oats in a food processor until they are fine. Add flours, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt; pulse to mix.

With a mixer, cream butter and brown sugar until yellow and fluffy. Add egg and beat, scraping sides. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix on low speed, until combined. You may need to mix by hand for a few minutes to get the batter to come together. It will be very thick.

Spray a mini-muffin tin with cooking spray. (I love my silicone muffin pan!) Drop about 1 Tablespoon of dough into each muffin cup. Press it down into the cup; then make a deep indention with your finger. Sprinkle chocolate chips or chunks into the indention.

Bake at 350 for about 14 minutes, until tops begin to brown.

Turn oven to broil.

Top each muffin cup with one-third of a marshmallow. Broil until lightly brown - watching constantly. This only took about 45 seconds for me.

Let cool in pan at least 5 minutes, then remove to a rack. Best eaten warm!
