My Bourbon Salted Caramel Cookies were some of the best cookies I made lately. Those inspired me to make another version. First of all, bacon and chocolate, hello! It’s one of my favorite combination. Plus you throw in a little bit of toffee for some added sweetness. I decided to add some mini marshmallows into the cookies for the added s’mores factor.

In your sandwich, you’ve got a bourbon infused chocolate sauce and a toasted marshmallow. Now you love marshmallows, I might suggest to put 2 of them in the middle of the cookies since they are kind of large. This cookie recipes makes 3 ½ dozen cookies, so you will have about 20 cookie sandwiches. I used a kitchen torch for my marshmallows, but if you don’t have one, you can also toast these in the oven.

Now you don’t HAVE to make yourself a sandwich, but why wouldn’t you? These cookies are plenty good on your own. Since these cookies are filled with ooey gooey marshmallows and toffee, I would highly suggest to bake them on a cookie sheet lined with a baking mat or parchment paper. Some of the toffee or marshmallow melt when baking. That’s totally fine by me though!

If you are looking for an alcohol free cookie, just omit the bourbon and add 3 more teaspoons of vanilla to the cookie dough batter. For the chocolate sauce, add one extra tablespoon of heavy whipping cream. It’s is easy to substitute it out!

    I recently came across this recipe. I’ve made it twice now for various holidays and the one comment people have is that they don’t taste the bourbon in the cookie. Any thoughts on how to get a more bourbon-y taste in just the cookies? Sometimes making the filling and the sandwich gets a little too messy so I’ve started just doing the cookie.
