In honor of the dad in our home, Rob, we came up with a treat for the nights we don’t get to spend by the fire. You see, we outfitted our yard with a firepit this spring, bought some chairs then bought some vintage furniture and are re-doing it and bought a hammock and got some tree stumps to act as tables so we have a cozy place to hang out as a family. Rob doesn’t like s’mores though. He’ll eat one but that’s it. He does love cookies so here are the S’Mores Cookies we made JUST FOR HIM.
It’s a pretty simple recipe actually. I started with my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and doctored it up with some mini marshmallows and a small chocolate piece if you’re trying to please a real chocoholic (Rob)when it was done baking.
S’mores Cookies (with extra chocolate)
- graham crackers broken in half (almost whole box)
- 1 cup softened butter (2 sticks)
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons hot water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- broken up chocolate bars*
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cream butter and sugars together until smooth and fluffy.
Beat in eggs one at a time till combined then add vanilla.
In a small cup dissolve baking soda in 2 tsp of HOT water.
Add baking soda mixture and salt to batter, mix lightly.
Beat in flour till well combined.
Add chocolate chips and marshmallows and mix for a few seconds.
Arrange 1/2 graham crackers close together on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Drop rounded spoonfuls on graham crackers and bake for 9-12 minutes. This should leave you with a soft gooey center and oozing caramelized marshmallow.
*Top with a piece of chocolate bar(optional) and set aside to cool for 5 minutes and enjoy.
Store in an air-tight container for up to 5 days but are best eaten in the first 2 days.
