I discovered this recipe while on vacation this summer. We stayed at a cabin on the beach and were excited about a campfire and s’mores when we realized there was a burn ban due to the drought issues. I decided to find a s’more cookie recipe so we could still enjoy the essence of having s’mores…without the possibility of a forest fire (except that we were on the beach… a beach fire?).
Since that vacation week, I’ve made these cookies several times. I love them… and everyone I have served them too has loved them too. These cookies are fun and super sweet, so I recommend pairing them with milk or coffee. :) I’ve tweaked the recipe just a bit, here’s where you can find the original cookie recipe.
Makes about 2 dozen, large cookies.
- 1 cup butter, unsalted & softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup mini marshmallows (if you have the regular size on hand, go ahead and cut them up… this works just as well)
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/2 package of graham cracker squares (about 24)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare your baking pans with parchment paper, cooking spray, or silicone liners. Lay out six of your graham cracker squares on each baking sheet.
- Now, cream together the butter, the sugars, and the salt until light and fluffy.
- Add the eggs, vanilla, and baking soda. Mix well.
- Slowly mix in the flour, about 1 cup at a time, but don’t overmix. Then stir in the chocolate chips and mini marshmallows.
- Using a 1/4 cup, scoop some dough, form a patty, and place on top of each graham cracker square, flattening slightly. Next, push in a couple of extra mini marshmallows on top so they are visible.
- Bake one sheet at a time for 10-12 minutes. The cookies will be soft and the marshmallows will be lightly toasted (YUM). Give them a few minutes to cool before transferring to a wire rack so they can finish cooling.
I’ve made these with chocolate graham crackers as well, and they were just as good.
