This past weekend I had a party to go to. Naturally, I decided to make a dessert. I thought it would be a great time to try out individual mini desserts. In my quest I stumbled upon these marvelous little gems: Caramel S’more Cups from Betty Crocker. Personally I would change their name to “Little Cup of Heaven”. Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies and caramel? Throw some marshmallows and a little more chocolate on top and you’ve got yourself a winner!
These desserts were definitely easy to make, and I highly suggest that all of you lovely people give them a try. My only word of caution is their calorie content. One little cup is a whopping 132 calories. I could easily scarf down 3 of them without even thinking. As a comparison 396 calories is a bit more than a McDouble from McDonalds. Add that to the list of things we never wanted to know, eh?
1 pouch Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
1/2 cup butter (softened)
111 mini marshmallows (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray mini muffin cups with cooking spray.
2. Make cookie dough as directed on package. Shape dough into 37 balls about 1 inch. (The original directions call for 36 balls but, for the life of me, I can never actually make the amount the recipe calls for.) Place one ball in each muffin cup.
3. Bake 8 minutes (until edges begin to brown). Remove from oven and firmly place one Rolo into each cookie. Top each cookie with three marshmallows and place back in the oven for 2 – 4 minutes (until mallows puff).
4. Once cookies are cooled, drizzle with melted semi sweet chocolate. Serve!
My mom told me I could never make these again… Having these around is just far too dangerous.
Oh…and don’t worry, there are plenty more than 37 Rolos in a regular sized bag. Feel free to eat one (or six…) as you’re unwrapping them.
