Not only are these s'mores patriotic, they are customizable. We like having a mix of chocolate bars on hand so guests have a choice. In addition to Norway's Freia milk chocolate, you could also try Ghirardelli dark chocolate with caramel, Ritter Sport praline, and Perugina cappuccino.

Instructions Checklist
  • Make the cookies: Whisk together flours, wheat germ, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.

  • Beat together butter, sugar, and honey with a mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture; beat until combined.

  • Turn out dough onto a floured surface, and divide in half. Roll out each dough half to 1/8-inch thickness, and refrigerate until firm, about 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut out squares with a 3-inch fluted square cutter. Cut a star out of the center of half the cookies using a 1 1/2-inch star cutter. Reroll scraps once, and repeat.

  • Place squares 1 inch apart on parchment-lined baking sheets, keeping cookies with cutouts together. Refrigerate until very firm, about 15 minutes.

  • Bake cookies until dark brown, 14 to 16 minutes, rotating halfway through (star cookies take about 1 minute less). Let cool on sheets 10 minutes. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container up to 2 days.

  • Assemble the s'mores: Preheat grill on high (if using a charcoal grill, coals are ready when you can hold your hand 5 inches above grill for just 2 seconds) or build a campfire. Divide chocolate among cookies without cutouts. Skewer marshmallows; toast over grill or fire, rotating, until gooey in center and nicely charred, about 2 minutes. Remove marshmallows from skewers; place 2 on each chocolate-topped cookie. Sandwich each with a cutout star cookie; press gently. Let sit 2 minutes to melt chocolate.

@Disball Is it really that hard to do a search: My issue with this recipe is that it never came together. I turned it out and it just crumbled. When I tried to roll it, it cracked and crumbled so much there's no way I could get a cookie cutter through it. I followed the recipe exactly, but I think the proportion of flour is just too high. I might try adding some water or an egg to see if I can get it to bind and save it.

S'mores is all about a great marshmallow, not the graham cracker. Disappointed this recipe didn't include homemade marshmallows.
