Smores Cookies

Are you noticing a theme? First a Smores Ice Cream Cake and now Smores cookies! Both were delicious! I’ve seen numerous food blogs post recipes for Smores Cookies and I’ve always wanted to try them because I LOVE smores.  We always make smores at the cottage when we are sitting around the fire.


I saw this particular recipe on Cookie Madness.  Everyone loved them! I wasn’t sure with the graham crackers in the actual recipe if it would dry the cookies out but it didn’t! They were super moist!


3/4 cup butter — softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate
1 cup (more or less) of marshmallows (not large style)
2 Hershey Bars, broken into pieces


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Blend in egg and vanilla. Add combined flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda and salt. Mix well. Stir in chocolate chips.
  2. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets about 3 inches apart.
  3. Bake in pre-heated oven 375 degrees F for 8 minutes. Remove and quickly press marshmallows and chocolate into cookies. Return to oven and cook until done (about 3 or 4 more minutes).

S’mores Ice Cream Cake

This recipe was SO delicious! It was gone in day! It’s so perfect and reminds you of a smore, but an ice cold one! I saw this recipe in LHJ June 2009.  I knew I had to make it right away. I’ve never attempted making an ice cream cake on my own, but I succeeded!  This recipe does take some time to make though since after each step you do have to freeze, so you can’t eat it the same day you make it!  This recipe serves 10.



2 packages(18) rectangles of graham crackers

2/3 cup of unsalted butter, melted

2-12 ounce jars of chocolate fudge sauce

1 1/2 quarts of chocolate ice cream

2 1/2 cups of mini marsh-mallows

1 quart of vanilla ice cream


  1. Grind graham crackers into fine crumbs in a food processor. Add melted butter and blend. Press mixture evenly into a 9 inch spring form pan, coating the bottom and 2 inches p the sides. Freeze until solid, about 30 minutes.
  2. Spread half of the fudge sauce over the crust, refreeze, for about a half hour. Meanwhile, soften chocolate ice cream and stir in 1 cup marshmallows. Spread mixture over fudge and freeze until firm about a half hour.
  3. Spread reaming fudge over ice cream, freeze until firm, about a half hour, then spread softened vanilla ice cream, on top of the cake and freeze solid, it takes about overnight.
  4. Place oven rack 6 inches from broiler; heat broiler on high. top cake with remaining marshmallows. Place under broiler 1 to 2 minutes until marshmallows are toasted, then return to freeze. When firm cover with plastic wrap and freeze for about 6 hours or up to 3 days.

This week for TWD, Karen of Something Sweet by Karen, picked Applesauce Spice Bars to make! I’ve been wanting to make these bars for a long time now! Everyone always raves about them when they make them!


They are SO yummy, SO moist and just SO good. They remind you so much of fall, my favorite season!  I definitely will make these again sometime soon! I typically don’t enjoy raisins in baked goods, but I didn’t even notice them really in the applesauce spice bars!

Pug Cupcakes

For my birthday party this year,  I didn’t want to make my own cake, but I really wanted to make these cupcakes I saw in the book I got from a recent message board exchange I participated in. The book is pretty popular, it’s called Hello Cupcake. This book is amazing! It has so many fun cupcake recipes and cupcake designs to make!

When I first got the book and saw the doggie section, I quickly scanned for a pug, and there was one! I was SO ecstatic! I love my little chunky monkey!


My sister in law and my self made these cupcakes the day of my party! I wish we would of had more time, just because we could of made the detailing a bit better! It was also very humid, the day of making them so as soon as the icing went on it went, droop. Oh well, they still turned out adorable!
