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.
Yield: ~3 dozen
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
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
3 Hershey bars, chopped
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.
