Chocolate Chip S’more Cookies

Chocolate Chip S'more Cookies 014 

Chocolate Chip S’more Cookies!  And they taste as good as they look!  I first saw these on Pinterest which took me to a blog called The Girl Who Ate Everything.  I found some fun recipes there including this one.  I noticed that the recipe looked very close to a chocolate chip cookie recipe so I decided to use my own favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe instead.   I added some cinnamon and some mini marshmallows and voila!

Here is how I made mine.

Chocolate Chip S’more Cookies

1 box graham crackers

6 Hershey Chocolate candy bars ( I bought a 6 pack in the candy section)

1 bag mini marshmallows

1 Cup sugar

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup butter

2 eggs

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

3 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 cups mini marshmallows

12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cream the butter and the sugars together.  Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well till light and fluffy.  In a separate bowl mix together the flour, salt,  and baking soda and cinnamon.   Slowly add to the creamed butter mixture.  Mix well.  Add the chocolate chips and the mini marshmallows and mix until incorporated but be careful not to over mix.

Line your baking pans with parchment paper.  (I used foil and sprayed it  with Pam which worked fine but I did have some cookies stick a bit to the sides of the foil around the edges of the pan.  I think parchment paper might be the better choice.) 

Take your graham crackers and break them into squares and line your cookie sheets with them.  Using a small cookie scoop (approx. 1 –2 Tablespoons) place a scoop of cookie dough on each graham cracker square.  After all of  the graham squares have cookie dough on them, use your fingers to slightly “smush”  the dough down to fill out the graham square. (See photo below.)  (I ended up with two large baking sheets.)

Place them in the oven for 5 minutes. 

While the S’more Cookies are baking during this first 5 minutes, take the time to unwrap at the Hershey Chocolate Bars and break into individual pieces.  (Each cookie sheet used about 3 candy bars broken into pieces.)

When the first 5 minutes is up, take the baking sheet out of the oven and gently press into each cookie square one of the Hershey chocolate pieces.  Return to the oven and continue baking for another 5 to 7 minutes.  Take them out of the oven when the edges start to brown.  Let cool for about 10 minutes and then remove to a cooling rack to continue cooling.

These  really do taste as good as they look.    And I just love how you can still see the word “Hershey’s” on the chocolate pieces and that you can see melted bits of marshmallows.  They taste wonderful warm or cold.  And when you bite into them they are soft and chewy and you can taste the cinnamon and the graham cracker along with all the other wonderful chocolate chip cookie gooey-ness.  These are too good!

Do you have a link to your Pinterest page somewhere? I think it would be easier to just follow you there than to pin your entire blog to my board(!)

Ohhhhhhh LISA. Those look fanTASTIC!!! And are in no way on my diet. Boo! Well, I'm bookmarking this and once I return from Paris and I've won the weightloss contest with Shana @Fumbling Toward Normalcy, I'm baking these victory cookies. Because I think they could definitely get me through the rest of a deployment!!
