S’more Ice Cream Sandwiches

You know what I love? These stupid things: Tollhouse sandwichYou know what else I love? Turning complicated things into easy ones. Case and point, this recipe.

It seems that when I sit down to come up with a fun new recipe my mind goes in all kinds of different directions. Typically, it’s a variation on something I love (mimosa muffin anyone?) and it just kind of takes off from there. With these s’mores cookie sandwiches, I knew I wanted a graham cracker cookie – that was easy. What to fill it with became the difficult part. Oh sure, chocolate and marshmallow, but what kind? I could make a “quick” ganache, or maybe chocolate frosting? What about drizzling them in chocolate? Did I want to make my own marshmallow? How about marshmallow goo (i.e. sundae topping)? I could buy some chocolate ice cream and stir in mini marshmallows. Oooh! I could on an all out manhunt trying to track down this Jelly Belly toasted marshmallow topping (I gave that idea up quick).  Or I could just go to the grocery store and see what they had.

So I was walking down the ice cream aisle, a jar of Fluff in my hand searching for some dark chocolate ice cream to mix with or smother with said fluff, when I found this: Chocolate Marshmallow IcE creamYes.

And $1.99 to boot. If anyone was a winner at the Publix today, it was me.

I tossed my fluff aside, cashed out, and headed home, realizing that if I appreciated a shortcut this much, surely anyone making this would as well. Sandra Lee would be proud.

I cannot take credit for this graham cracker cookie recipe either, it was the third one down on a Google search and if it was good enough for Jen it was good enough for me. A few tweaks and we were in business.

Thus, I present thee with…
