If it were possible to type without, you know, using your hands, I’d be all over that. And don’t talk to me about that newfangled voice recognition software. I just can’t imagine that it works very well and I’m too cheap to try it. Also, I would feel like a total dork talking to my computer.

Why don’t I want to type with my hands? I’m so glad you asked.

The thing is, I’m in the midst of a remodel. We kicked our daughter out of her bedroom to turn it into an office. (She moved to the son’s room, the son moved to the basement. Neither children are sleeping in a box in the backyard. Yet.)

So, I made a deal with the husband. If he ripped the carpet up, I would lay the new floor. Funny thing about laying new floors: it’s hard work. And it makes my carpal tunnel act up like you wouldn’t believe. So, basically what I’m saying is ow. Two little letters and it took me four paragraphs to say them.

I’m so wordy.

Also, I’m sort of a s’mores genius. I have a slight s’mores addiction, (seriously, click that link) especially when peanut butter is involved, and I created these cray-cray cookie cups. Utter perfection, you guys. The cookie base is so soft. The fluff is, well, fluff. Oh, and did I mention? I used Nutella for the chocolate. Because, duh. You can use a sprinkling of chocolate chips or a piece of a Hershey’s bar, though. It’s all good.

Peanut Butter S'mores Cookie Cups

Yield: 18 cookie cups

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 32 minutes

Ingredients:

1 stick butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons milk
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup marshmallow fluff
1/2 cup Nutella

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a standard sized muffin tin with cooking spray.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, peanut butter, and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Stir in the milk and vanilla.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to the creamed mixture and beat until well combined.
Place around two teaspoonfuls of dough into the bottom of each muffin tin and use your fingers to press it in a bit to cover the bottom of each muffin well. Drop a teaspoon of marshmallow fluff and Nutella in the center of each. Roll a teaspoonful of dough into a ball and smash it flat and place it over the top of the fluff and Nutella. Repeat to cover each cookie.
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely before removing from the muffin tin.

    Looks fantastic, can’t wait to make these. Just wondering what a ‘stick’ of butter is measured as. I’m in Australia and thinking that it’s either 125g or 250g, could you confirm PLEASE. Really wishing to try these yummies. thank you.

    One stick of butter is one half cup. I believe that would be 125 grams.

    Is chocolate in the nutella? And is the order for fluff 1st and nutella 2nd important? It looks like the nutella is below the fluff?

    Yes, Nutella has chocolate in it. It doesn’t matter if you put the Nutella or Fluff in first. Either way is fine.

    I can’t be trusted alone with these cookies! I just gave myself a tummy ache and ruined my dinner (so worth it though!).

    I was so excited when I saw this…. until I saw that Nutella is used. I hate that stuff with a passion…. too sweet, a bit gritty, and all-over gross in my book. Anything I can use to substitute that? Preferably chocolate?

    Absolutely! Chocolate chips, chunks, or little Hershey’s pieces would work just fine.

    Hershey makes chocolate spread that is all chocolate – no hazelnuts. It is yummy! I don’t like nutella either.

    Oh my lord, I must try these! (and then, all your other s’mores recipes!)….. But, and, I’m sorry if I’m just a dunce, what is marshmallow “fluff”? Is that a fancy way of saying put a marshmallow in? Or is it something else? And can I get it at the supermarket or do I have to make it?
    thanks, can’t WAIT to try these! nom nom nom!

    Marshmallow Fluff is sold near the marshmallows in the grocery store. It’s like melted marshmallows. :)

    I apologize is that has been asked, but would these freeze okay, do you (or anyone) know?

    These looked so delicious, a sweet treat. But they were VERY dry. It was incredibly difficult to eat without gulping milk every single time.

    I’m in Australia and cant buy so cheap nor easily … Desperately want to eat these … Can you suggest a replacement or alternative to the marshmallow fluff … OR maybe even better how to adjust the recipe without it ?
    Thanks

    I would either leave the fluff out of these or look up a recipe for a homemade version. :)

    These look great. I’ve made brookies which were simple and very like this. I can’t wait to try them!
