Moon Pies



  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 

  • Roll cookie dough to ¼-inch thickness. Use a 2-inch cookie cutter to cut dough into rounds. Re-roll dough until you have 16 cookies. 

  • Place in the oven and bake until cookies have set, 8-10 minutes. Let cool completely before assembling the sandwich cookies. 

  • When cookies are cool, spoon 1 tablespoon marshmallow creme in the center of a cookie (don’t spread it) and top with another cookie to create a sandwich. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat with remaining cookies and marshmallow creme. You should have 8 sandwich cookies. 

  • Place cookies in the freezer until the cream is firm, about 15 minutes. 

  • While cookies are freezing, make the chocolate coating: To a medium heatproof bowl add chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave on high in 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Let cool slightly before dipping cookies. 

  • Remove cookies from the freezer. Dip a cookie into the melted chocolate, turning it over to completely coat the cookie in chocolate. Use a fork to remove the cookie from the chocolate, letting the excess chocolate drip off. 

  • Place the cookie back onto the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 

  • Repeat process with remaining cookies. 

  • Pour remaining chocolate into a piping bag or Ziploc bag. Snip the end with scissors and drizzle the tops of the cookies with the chocolate. Let the chocolate set and then serve immediately.
