S’mores Cookies

I’ve had these cookies starred in my Google Reader for quite some time now. I knew I wanted to make them once I got the idea to do a week of smores recipes. These cookies taste just like smores and are so cute with the little chunks of Hershey bars and mini marshmallows poking out all over the place.

I’m not a huge fan of thin cookies, but these sure were tasty. And ooey and gooey just like smores you’d make at a campfire.

S'mores Cookies

Yield: ~3 dozen

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 dash of cinnamon
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
3 Hershey bars, chopped

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium bowl combine the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda, salt, and dash of cinnamon. In a second larger bowl beat together the butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Slowly beat in the flour mixture until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 minutes, and remove from the oven. Push 3 to 4 marshmallows and a few pieces of hershey bar into each cookies. Return to the oven and bake an additional 2-3 minutes until fully cooked. Cool cookies on a wire rack.

    I grew up calling them Samoas and didn’t like them when I was selling them, but have since grown to love them. Great twist on a traditional rice krispie treat!

      I can’t tell if the naming thing is regional or not. I know people who grew up in Indiana like me who call them Samoas. They’ll always be Caramel Delites to me.

    I’ve been wondering why they aren’t always called Samoas!

    Are the pecans there for the Samoa flavor or just an extra addition?

    • beantownbaker — March 18th, 2014 @ 8:03 am

      They add some texture but you could leave them out if you wanted.

    Awesome recipe! Let me provide a little insight to the naming of the cookies (Caramel deLights vs Samoas my wife is a girl scout troop leader). The girl scouts rely on a few bakeries to produce their cookies. Caramel deLights are made by one bakery, while Samoas are made by another.

    Just made these – very tasty, but I had a lot of trouble with the caramel layer. It hardened so much, I couldn’t cut the squares. I had to heat them up a bit to cut through the caramel, and then they got rather sticky and did not cut cleanly. Followed directions exactly, not sure what went wrong…

    On Sunday nights, my hubby leads a college-age Bible study group and I use the kids/young adults as my guinea pigs for trying new recipes. I made these yesterday and they LOVED them. Thank you for the recipe!
