S'mores Cookies


Guess what I made....


S'mores Cookies!!!!  I saw this container filled with mini marshmallow bits at the store and couldn't resist. Once I was home I thought to myself "what the heck am going to make with these"?  Then I remembered seeing a post for these cookies by Jess over at "On Sugar Mountain" and I knew I had to try them! 


So I gathered my ingredients and got my taste testers lined up.  It is so hard to find friends willing to act as my taste testers (she says, dripping with sarcasm) but I was able to find some fellow ASL students who were carpooling with me to the state capitol for an ASL event and were willing to sacrifice themselves to try my cookies!  


I used these mini kisses instead of chocolate chips but I will warn you that it was torture....so hard not to eat the whole bag while the rest of the dough was being prepared!

I was very interested to see that the graham crackers were actually added to the dry ingredients.  Definitely gave the whole cookie that graham flavor that I love!!


Here is where I will give you a VERY serious warning.......this cookie dough is addictive!  Don't take this warning lightly, you will really have to use all of your self control, and make sure you bake all of the cookie dough right away.....because if you don't, I GUARANTEE you will want to eat it ALL!!!



The big surprise for me with this recipe were all of those wonderful little mini marshmallows.  Straight out of the container they are hard and a little crisp.  I was worried that they would be more like marshmallow chips in the cookie.  Once they were baked they held their shape but became soft little gooey marshmallows!  


These were definitely taste tester approved!  They went over so well that I made them a second time that week for a weekend trip to a friends cabin.  I made them with the kids in mind but the other adults at the cabin kept hiding the container of cookies and saying they were just too good to share with the kids!  ;D


I hope you try these cookies!  If you are a s'mores lover like myself you will really want to give them a try.  Make them for the kids AND the adults because I guarantee that no one will be able to resist!  Just remember to pace yourself, these are REALLY addictive and there is no 12 step program for cookies!!  

S'mores Cookies (via On Sugar Mountain)

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cups flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs, finely processed
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup mini Hersey's Kisses (or regular chocolate chips)
1 cup Mallow Bits

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper (I used my lovely Silpats)

Cream butter and both sugar until well incorporated. Beat in egg and vanilla. Meanwhile in a separate bowl sift together the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt.

Add dry ingredient mixture to wet ingredient mixture and stir until dough comes together. Stir in chocolate chips and mallow bits.

Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough onto prepared baking sheets and bake at 350 for approximately 10 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Let cool on pan for 2 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.

Yield: roughly 2 dozen cookies

    1. One of the perks of being back in college....I'm surrounded by young adults who LOVE treats and don't have to worry about how much of them they eat! This saves me from gaining 200 lbs!! :)

  2. I don't think any other cookie hits the mark if marshmallows aren't involved - just saying ;)
