Gimme S’more of That!

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?

Caramel S’more Cups:

Ingredients:
1 pouch Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1 egg
37 Rolos
111 mini marshmallows (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
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.
