Christmas baking cookie #3... I'm not sure what to call these... Smores Cups? Ok sure, we'll call 'em Smores Cups.
These were baked in a mini muffin tin. I fumbled a bit on the first batch because I sprayed the muffin tin with cooking spray so they won't stick but then realized I had a non-stick tin!
For this recipe I used pre made Pillsbury Chocolate Chip cookie dough so there really isn't any recipe to list.
Basically I rolled the dough into small balls and put one in each cup of the mini muffin tin. With my finger, I pressed a small indent into the ball then put the tin in the oven and baked it for about 10-12 minutes on 350*F. (don't quote me on that because I think I may have taken them out sooner because they weren't quite ready.) Once I removed them from the oven - when they were ready - I put three mini marshmallows inside each indented cookie cup and put them back in the oven for 2 minutes to puff up the mallows. Once baked and removed from the oven I let them sit in the tin to cool off because the one I tried to free from the tin broke apart and had to be eaten quickly!
While they were cooling, I put some chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in a zip lock sandwich bag and put the bag in a cup of hot water to melt the chips. I could have put them in the microwave but they'd have been too melty (is that a word?) I wanted the chocolate to be melted but thick not too thin. I poked a hole in the corner of the bag and drizzled them over the now cooled and sitting on a wire rack cookies. Then finally I transferred the cookies onto a plate and popped them in the fridge to solidify the chocolate before putting them in a cookie tin in the fridge.
They taste pretty good too. Kind of sweet but kids like sweets so that's a good thing.
