S'mores Cookies

5:14 AM

I admit, I'm not a big marshmallow fan - I just cannot handle a lone marshmallow on its own. I do like some marshmallow-y treats though. Like moon pies!! Only if they've been sufficiently microwaved though...and who doesn't love some good ole' homemade Rice Krispy treats? And, the pinnacle of marshmallow goodness - the classic S'more! One of my favorite things on this earth. And when I saw a recipe for a S'more cookie, I had to try this creative cookie.


The cookie itself is made with graham cracker crumbs, so it doesn't taste like your run-of-the-mill chocolate chip cookie. It is loaded with chocolate chips, then adorned with marshmallows and even MORE chocolate, but this time from a broken up candy bar to give it a definite "s'more" look to it. The cookie tastes just as great as it looks (and come on, that is a good looking cookie!), and is incredibly fun for kids to help make. Thing One and Thing Two took their "marshmallow-topper" jobs very seriously, and they did a great job, if you ask me! I think I will fall back on this recipe for any future bake sales since it is a unique idea and is very pretty to look at.

S'mores Cookies
Yields 3 dozen

6 ounces unsalted butter, cool room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup miniature marshmallows (approximately)
2 Hershey's Bars, broken into pieces (or other favorite milk chocolate)

1. Preheat oven to 350˚. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2. Cream butter and both sugars with an electric mixer; beat in egg and vanilla. Beat in salt and baking soda, making sure they are well distributed and free of lumps; stir in the flour, followed by graham cracker crumbs. Stir in chocolate chips.

3. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto cookie sheets, spacing about 3 inches apart. Bake for 9 minutes. Remove and quickly press marshmallows and chocolate into cookies. Return to oven and cook until done (about 3 or 4 more minutes).
