Hi everyone- I can’t wait to share some YUMMY goodness with you today! I know I usually don’t post on Saturdays, but I have so many things to share with you lately! That’s a good thing ,right?
Okay, so I made these S’mores cookies with the kids the other day, and they LOVED them. They loved making them, seeing them bake and definitely eating them!
I found the recipe on Pinterest- where it was originally posted from Jennifer at the Picky Palate. I also realized that I pin a LOT of S’mores recipes! I’ve pinned S’mores cups, cookies, bars, and more— you think I might like s’mores or something 😉
Now, I’ve tried all kinds of s’mores combinations the old-fashioned campfire way. I’ve made them with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, I’ve tried them with Dark Chocolate, I’ve tried them with caramel filled chocolate, and more!
But, this is the first time I’ve tried the S’mores INSIDE of a cookie! Warning: These are good for your soul, but not so much for your waistline.
The first thing you want to do- is put together mini s’mores- using 1/4 of a graham cracker on top and bottom, a stacker marshmallow (the flat kind that Jet-puffed has, that are perfect for S’more making!) If you can’t find these- you can cut a big marshmallow in half. I also used 3 little rectangles of a Hershey’s bar- 🙂
Then mix together your dough- I use this awesome pink Beater Blade that scrapes the bowl as it mixes- that my mother-in-law gave me for Christmas. LOVE IT!
- 2 sticks softened butter
- 1 3/4 Cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon molasses
- 2 eggs
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla
- 3 1/2 Cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, Add eggs and vanilla, continue to beat until well combined Place flour, salt and baking soda into a bowl; mix to combine then add slowly to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips.
Bake 17-19 minutes
Add scoops of cookie dough onto the top of the graham cracker, and then one into your hand- then, start forming the dough around the graham crackers- you will need to add cookie dough as you go along, to be sure to cover the sides. It gets pretty big- be patient, it gets easier the more you do it!
Here’s what they look like before going into the oven. It will make about 10 -12 cookies. I used the left over dough to make regular cookies for Mr. Pink, as he was not excited for S’mores filled cookies. (WHAAT?! Crazy, right?)
Here is the cookie as it starts to spread.
And, done. Do you see the marshmallow peeking through? So…yummy looking!
Be sure to let them cool on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes before trying to move them to the cooling rack- because these babies are BIG and ooey, gooey in the middle- though the graham cracker does help add support 😉
Here is the size of the S’mores cookie next to a ‘regular’ sized cookie! HAHA! Mr. Pink did say he liked this version of the Chocolate Chip cookie though- extra buttery!
Seriously? It is humongous! It’s as big as my daunter’s face- she thought this was HILARIOUS!
And, now for the moment of truth- the ooey, gooey, yumminess- everyone loved them!
