So if you read yesterdays post, you know that I got a brand new stand mixer, lovingly named Stella! And because I have an extremely strong sense of urgency, and because I’ve been deprived of baking since Monday night, I was dying to use Stella the Mixer. And she is perfect and new, and so I figured that I should make a perfect (hopefully) and new recipe… S’mores Cookies!!! I have been daydreaming about this recipe ALL WEEK, and I am SO happy that I finally got to make it! I love s’mores, they are the perfect childhood treat, and I guess since I turned 24, I wanted to feel like a kid again! I really wanted these to taste JUST like smores, minus the campfire. And I think that they really do, so let’s get to it!
You’ll Need To…
Preheat your oven to 350°. Beat your butter and sugar in a large bowl, until fluffy. (STELLA MADE THIS LOOK SO EASY… hehe)
Add the eggs and vanilla, and beat until well blended. In a medium bowl, mix flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to the butter mixture, and beat until well blended.
Fold in the chocolate chips, or mix in on the lowest speed. (You don’t want to break up your chocolate chips, so be careful if you use your mixer!)
Scoop out dough in spoonfuls. Roll in a ball, and then flatten. (You’re almost making a little bowl with the dough!)
Place 4-5 marshmallows in the center. (You can use as many as you want, but 5 worked perfectly for me… the marshmallows came out just enough to look great, but not so much that marshmallow was all over the cookie sheet.)
Then roll back into a ball, making sure the marshmallows are covered completely with cookie dough.
Place on your ungreased cookie sheet, and bake for 5 minutes. Quickly put your Hershey bar squares on top of each cookie, then bake for 5-7 more minutes. (Just open the oven, put them on, and shut it. I don’t take the cookie sheet out because it can cause the cookies to bake funky.)
Let cool for 5 minutes on the tray, the transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
Yeah, yummers. Like for reals guys, they are SO GOOD! I love that you can see the marshmallow bubbling out of the dough too… it was difficult waiting for them to cool (I might have eaten one as soon as they were able to come off the tray… oopsies.)
Well I sure hope y’all think these look as good as I do, because I LOVE them! Again, my goal was for them to taste just like s’mores, and I think this was about as close as you can get without lighting up the camp fire! These make me feel like a kid again, and that is a much needed feeling now that I’m 24… EEEEEEEK!!!
So go make these little babies, and get in touch with your inner child! And maybe afterwards you can build a fort out of blankets in your living room… yes I still do that with my sister 🙂
I’m off to burn off these cookies, but y’all enjoy, and feel free to leave comments/questions/suggestions!!! And if you like, you should subscribe 🙂
