Double Chocolate Smores

Cool Weather Sweets

Smores in a plateThere is just something about a smores that makes you smile.  Maybe it’s fond memories of being a kid, circled around a campfire, or even now at restaurants and coffee shops where they are a popular item.

The thought of  melted chocolate with that fluffy marshmallow topping roasted to perfection just makes everything in the world pretty good doesn’t it?  How do you like your marshmallows? I like mine almost black and super crispy!

So, I was on a mission to create my own version.  However, instead of the traditional graham cracker bottom, I opted for a double chocolate version for an irresistible double punch. 

Replacing it with a super buttery chocolate cookie for something different and by the way, gets me a few brownie points with my husband who loves chocolate!  

The chocolate really gives it such an added richness without it being to sweet and works so deliciously well with the smooth and creamy chocolate center.

These double chocolate smores are a real winner and the torched marshmallow topping just completes this serious chocolate delight.  Any chocolate lover would fall backwards and sideways after a bite of this!

The components

Chocolate Cookie Base:

I started with the chocolate butter cookie.  I rolled out the dough and used a square cutter to cut out the bases, then baked them off.

Chocolate Ganache Filling:

I make the chocolate ganache mixture and pour it into a small baking dish with sides lined with saran wrap.  Then I refrigerate it till firm.  Afterwards, I remove it lifting up the saran wrap and it comes out super easy.  I use the same square cutter to cut out individual squares that will be placed on the cookie bases. Making sure to cut them when they are still cold because the warmth of your hands will start to soften the ganache.

Marshmallow Topping:

This is a simple recipe that consist of gelatin, water, and sugar cooked then placed in mixer to make a fluffy icing.  You can substitute mini marshmallows or those new awesome flat rectangle ones that are now on store shelves.  They are perfect!

Then the fun begins by placing all these together for your incredible smore experience.  The best part beside eating them, is of course torching the marshmallow topping.   A kitchen torch works the best.
