Grown Up S’Mores

Grown Up S’Mores!

Cookies (your preferred variety) or Graham Crackers (more traditional)
Marshmallow Creme
Nocciolota Organic Hazelnut Spread

I made these using soft sugar cookies. They would be delicious on almost any kind of cookie.

I won’t give nutritional data (for a couple reasons.) The number will widely vary based on the cookie or cracker you choose, and if you make them open face (like I did) or put a second cooking on top. The numbers will also vary based on how much marshmallow creme and Nocciolata you use. And lastly, sometimes, you just don’t want to know the numbers.

This dessert was absolutely delicious. The Nocciolatta (a more refined version of Nutella) added a wonderful chocolate-hazelnut flavor. Nocciolata has a slightly stronger hazelnut presence, and is smoother, and slightly thinner than Nutella.

Thanks to Kara McKena for sending me this delicious food to sample!

  5. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
  6. When fully mixed, gently fold in the blueberries.
    We made the batter in our vintage Fire King “Cinderella” bowl. 
    We use vintage cookware as much as possible. It makes the food taste better!  πŸ™‚

These cookies are light and soft, and really tasty.
