Ingredients
  

  • For the cookie cups:
  • 1 cup 2 sticks butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • For the filling:
  • Nutella or some other form of spreadable chocolate
  • For topping:
  • Crushed graham crackers
  • Marshmallows
  • Cooking spray of your choice
  • Pestle or small shot glass to indent the cookies when they come out of the oven to form cups
  • Parchment paper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream the butter in a bowl and add both cups of sugar. Mix with a mixer.
  • Stir in the eggs and vanilla.
  • Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl and add to the butter mixture; blend well.
  • Spray a mini-muffin pan with cooking spray.Take this cookie dough, which is really just a chocolate chip cookie recipe without the chocolate chips, and form approximately 1-inch dough balls. Place one dough ball in each mini-muffin cup. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes.
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 300 degrees.
  • Let the cookie cups rest for 2 minutes and then use a pestle to indent the cookies. Don't push too far down, as you don't want to use a ton of Nutella to fill the hole. Try to make an indention that one teaspoon of Nutella will fill.
  • After the cookies are indented, transfer to a cooling rack for approximately 5 minutes. NOTE: you can stop here and save your cookies to fill at another time.
  • Fill each cookie cup with Nutella and sprinkle crushed graham crackers on top. Place these Nutella-filled cookie cups on a baking sheet that is covered with parchment paper. Then add a marshmallow on top. I use the extra-large marshmallows and cut each into 8 pieces. (I do this to provide more of a sticky surface for the graham cracker to adhere to before I place them back in the oven. It's easier to use a regular-size marshmallow and simply cut it in half, sticky side up.)
  • Bake the s'more cups for 3 minutes at 300 degrees. After 3 minutes, turn the broiler on high for just 90 seconds (Really, 60 seconds won't brown the marshmallows and 2 minutes is too long; 90 seconds is perfect.).
  • Remove from the oven and immediately use a metal spoon to press the hot marshmallow down gently.
  • Serve after 5 minutes.
