S’mores Cookies

For my friend’s wedding cookie table, I made this second type of cookie – s’mores cookies! The first cookies I made were sugar cookies in this post. I wanted the second cookie to be a drop cookie that was a little different than the classic chocolate chip. Hence, the s’mores cookies, what could be better than marshmallow, graham cracker, and chocolate chips embedded into a delicious dough?

I Pinterest’ed my way through dozens and dozens of cookies until I found these from KevinandAmanda.com. They were easy to make and delicious!

S’mores Cookies

From KevinandAmanda.com

Yield:  About 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (7 full graham cracker sheets)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup Mini Hershey’s Kisses or regular chocolate chips/chunks
  • 1 cup Jet Puffed Mallow Bits or mini marshmallows

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and beat for an additional 2 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, use a food processor or blender to crush 7 graham cracker sheets into 3/4 cup fine crumbs. In a separate bowl, whisk together the graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix on low speed until the dough just comes together. Add the chocolate and marshmallows and stir to combine.
  3. Place 1.5 tablespoon sized scoops of dough onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes.

The food processor part was fun watching the graham crackers become powder. Next time I may try cinnamon graham crackers or honey. This time I just did original.

Then I whisked all the dry ingredients together.

Then in the stand mixer, I beat all the wet ingredients. I was pretty proud of my egg shot since you can see the paddle attachment pulling the egg white in! I’ll admit, it was all the DSLR camera on automatic, so I didn’t really do anything except hold a camera while dumping an egg in.

Then the dough looks like this.

And you fold in all of the marshmallows and chocolate. I didn’t have mallow bits, nor do I know what those are or where to get them, so I just used the bag of mini marshmallows I had.

Then I plopped little cookies on the tray. I did smaller cookies since it was for a cookie table, but you can make yours bigger. I think these would be delicious as a large soft cookie.

Bake!

With the mini marshmallows you get that expansion of the marshmallow in the heat, so my cookies got bubbly. But they do deflate after they cool.

Look at that marshmallow in the front!
