Marshmallow Cookie Sandwiches were born when Tennessee gave us the Moon Pie in 1917, marking one giant leap for snack-kind. The homemade version is out of this world. Graham crackers are surprisingly easy to make.

    envelopes unflavored gelatin (about 2 tablespoons)

  • 2/3

    cup cold water

  • 1 1/2

    cups granulated sugar

    cup light corn syrup

  • 1

    teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 8

    ounces semisweet chocolate, melted

  • 1

Directions

1.Coat a 9-inch square baking pan with cooking spray; line with parchment.

Whisk, gradually increasing speed to high, until almost tripled in volume, about 8 minutes. Whisk in vanilla. Transfer to baking pan. Smooth top. Let stand until set, at least 3 hours. 4.Cut out nine 2 1/2-inch square marshmallows using a cookie cutter or a knife dipped in confectioners' sugar. Dip surface of crackers into chocolate to coat, and transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes. Sandwich marshmallows between crackers, chocolate sides in. 5.Dip half of each sandwich into chocolate, on the diagonal; sprinkle with peanuts, and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes.
