Ingredients and substitutions for S’more Cookies
- Butter: Unsalted butter is used for the cookie, but if all you have on hand is salted, that works as a fine substitute, just leave out any salt suggested in the recipe. See FAQ’s for the amount of butter you’ll need for the browned butter.
- Brown sugar: Light brown sugar was used in this recipe, though you can substitute in equal measure with dark brown sugar or use half and half for a deep caramel flavor in your cookies. As a result of using brown sugar our cookies are chewy but still have a nice crispy edge, so substituting completely with superfine or caster sugar would result in firmer and sweeter cookies.
- Eggs: The egg binds and adds structure to our cookies resulting in that soft interior that compliments the sugar and butter.
- Graham crackers: Graham crackers with their whole wheat plain flavor are a compliment to give these cookies their undertone. If you cannot source graham crackers. A perfect substitute in equal measure is digestive biscuits which are very similar equivalent overseas or even a plain milk biscuit would work well here also.
- Flour: Plain or all purpose flour is best for a nice light cookie crumb.
- Baking powder: This helps our cookies rise so they are not stodgy.
- Baking soda: This helps our cookies rise alongside the baking powder avoiding a heavy dense cookie.
- Chocolate: 56% dark chocolate block was used here because it is less sweet and higher quality than baking chocolate and controls the level of sweetness in the cookies better.
- Marshmallows: For the ease of fitting within the cookie dough, these are best cut down to the size of a finger tip. Or just using mini mallows.
See recipe card for quantities.
