Have you ever found yourself eating a chocolate cookie and thought to yourself that surely, surely there must be a way to heighten this delicious experience? The answer is yes, and that way is Pop-Tarts. More specifically, S'mores Pop-Tarts.

Let me introduce what is bound to become a new classic: The Chocolate Drop S'mores Pop-Tart Cookie. It's a mouthful in more ways than one, a taste so wholly unholy that while part of you may cry—no, most of you will cry for s'more.

  • Yield:makes 2 dozen cookies
  • Active time: 20 minutes
  • Total time:1 hour, 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 squares unsweetened chocolate (1 ounce each)
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups flour, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 S'mores Pop-Tarts

Directions

  1. 1.

    Toast your two Pop-Tarts. Let cool until they are still warm but not hot, and cut them into approximately 1/4 inch pieces. Set aside.

  2. 2.

    In a medium mixing bowl, combine the butter, sugar, egg, and chocolate. Mix thoroughly. Stir in buttermilk and vanilla until fully incorporated.

  3. 3.

    In a separate bowl, mix flour with baking soda and salt; mix in with wet mixture. Fold in the Pop-Tarts pieces.

  4. 4.

    Let the dough chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour, or as long as overnight.

  5. 5.

    Heat oven to 400°F. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of dough about 2 inches apart on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until no imprint remains when lightly touched. Let sit for 5 minutes on the sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
