Cookies 'n Cream S'mores Cups with Nutella

I was hoping to fit three apostrophes into the title, but two will have to be sufficient. Regardless, these cookies will blow your mind.

Let me start at the very beginning. A very good place to start. Husband and I were planning a little overnight camping trip with some friends. Husband was giddy with excitement. But lo and behold, little James got sick the day we were supposed to go! He was wheezing and his breathing was awful. Took him to the doctor and ended up with a nebulizer, steroids and some antibiotics for the bonus ear infection he had. Needless to say, we didn't go camping. No wait...not needless to say. Let me be more specific. Husband thought we should still go camping because James "wouldn't stop breathing, would he?" Both my instincts and my years of nursing training told me that breathing cessation was a poor threshold for staying home. Anyway, we didn't end up going.

Which left me with a bag full of s'mores ingredients and no campfire.

Which led me search the internet for indoor s'mores.

Which led me to a recipe to S'mores Cups.

Which, upon pondering the merits of replacing white chocolate with milk chocolate, led me to this little creation...

Cookies 'n Cream S'mores Cups with Nutella

7 graham crackers
1/4 cup powdered sugar
6 TBS butter, melted
2 King size cookies 'n cream chocolate bars
12 large marshmellows
Nutella for dipping (about 1/2 cup)

Place graham crackers in ziplock bag and crush with hands or rolling pin until resembling fine crumbs. Place in bowl and mix with powdered sugar and melted butter. Press graham cracker mixture into miniature muffin tin, about 1TBS per cup. Bake at 350 for 4-5 minutes or until edges become bubbly. Meanwhile, break up cookie bars into pieces (along score lines). Cut marshmellows in half. After taking graham cracker cups out of the oven, place 1 piece of chocolate into each cup followed by one half marshmellow. Return to oven for 1-2 minutes until marshmellow is softened. Remove from oven. Let cool. Carefully remove cup from tin with spoon. If they are breaking, they may need to set longer before removing. Melt nutella at 15 second intervals until it reaches the consistency of melted chocolate. Dip marshmellow cup into nutella. Eat them. Love them. Make them again. They took under 30 minutes to make, so there really are no excuses.

You'll notice that there is no picture of a sea of S'mores cups. That is because Husband and I ate the whole pan in about four minutes flat, before we even remembered to take a picture.

Happy indoor camping!


  1. It's like you took all of the things I love and put them in a no-mess format. I can't wait to try these. My life revolves around s'mores :) Thanks for posting! Oh, and when can we get together again? Oh, and I love that you called James "Baby Bane" but is he okay?

  2. Baby Bane is all better, thank you! He is doing great, breathing like a champion baby.

    We must get together soon! Definitely before Christmas. I will email you. :)
