Could this title be any longer? No but seriously, these are Campfire S’mores Snowflake Shortbread Cookies. Shortbread base, cut into snowflakes for festive flair, decorated with gooey marshmallows, chocolate drizzle and pretzel crumbs (but you can sub graham cracker crumbles for an even more authentic flavour!).
These cookies are the best ever for holiday baking because they’re easy to make and SO fun to decorate. Not to mention, fun to eat too. So much fun to eat!
Today is the eve of Christmas Eve and what better time to do some holiday baking than the night before Santa comes?! I hope his reindeer (and our dogs Willa and Hazel) don’t snatch them up before Santa can get one!
Let’s talk about the dough…
If you have made my other shortbread cookies, you’ll be happy to discover this dough is the same! Except we also add some chocolate shavings into this dough to make them speckled and hinted with chocolate flavour. I used dark chocolate shavings and the slight bitterness balanced so well with the sweet cookies!
Then, just roll it out, cut with your favourite cookie cutter (doesn’t have to be snowflake shape, use what you have!) then bake. When they come out of the oven, press a square of dark chocolate in the center of each, and immediately add a marshmallow (I used large size Dandies marshmallows, cut in half) and the heat will melt it slightly and help them stick. Then drizzle on some melted chocolate and sprinkle some crushed pretzels or graham crackers!
