Review: Pillsbury Melts S'mores Sensation Filled Cookies

Pillsbury Melts S'mores Sensation filled cookies are a ready-to-bake option with 9 marshmallow-filled chocolate chip cookies with a packet of chocolaty icing to drizzle on them.

An 11-5-oz package cost me $2.50 on sale.

These are easy enough to make. They're individually separated in a tray rather than in a chunk that you have to section off yourself. You just place them on a baking/cookie sheet and toss them in the oven (the smell of baking chocolate chip cookies is always a bonus).

They come out more rectangular than than circular and it's easy enough to put on the icing. If you have kids or are just more artistically inclined, you can make a very small hole in the icing packet and decorate the cookies accordingly.

If you're like me and can't be bothered (or rather didn't think about it until this very moment), you can just rip open the packet and do a quick squiggle on each cookie.

The cookies sported the just the thinnest, crispy crust that easily cracked to reveal the wonderfully soft, warm, crumbly insides. There aren't a lot of chocolate chips but I think that's what the icing is for. The chocolate flavor might overpower the rest of the s'mores components otherwise. The cookie made for a suitable stand-in for the graham cracker with a brown sugar sweetness rather than honey.

The marshmallow filling came in just the right ratio to give you that light gooey sweetness without feeling like you're just eating flavored marshmallows. The gooey-ness also helps to hold the cookie together as you eat it.

The icing is more sweet and syrupy than chocolaty on its own, but when eaten as part of the whole cookie it works really well.

Overall, Pillsbury Melts S'mores Sensation filled cookies (couldn't they have just called it "S'mores cookies?") were absolutely delicious--a gooey, crumbly, chocolaty amalgam of yummy things.
