s'mores cookies

We had a fantastic summery weekend.  We were on our beach cruisers, at the beach, barbecuing with friends, soaking up sun and visiting with family.  The whole weekend screamed summer.  To make it even more summery we ate a whole bunch of these s'mores cookies.  What is it about a s'more that just makes you feel like a kid on summer break.  The first two weeks of July have been awesome.  I feel like this is the first summer in a long time I can enjoy.  Not pregnant, don't have a newborn and the weather doesn't suck.  All of this fun has me feeling like just as we are getting into the swing of summer fun it is going to be over.  There are 63 days of summer left.  I am going to pack it with as much fun (and s'mores) as possible.

Carter came home from his camp themed camp today and said mommy we made s'mores at camp today but, they made them wrong I like yours with the chocolate on top not inside.  So cute!  We all loved these cookies but, honestly I think Campbell was the true fan.  She would walk over to the cookie jar in the morning and ask for "cookie cookie".

Enjoy summer and make these today.  Your kids will love you and you will feel like a kid all over again.

Looking for more s'mores (that is fun to say)!  These are both really good.  Promise.

s'mores cookies

11 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
½ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs, room temp
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp kosher salt
½ tsp cinnamon
2 ½ cups flour
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows
2  ½ regular sized hershey’s bars, broken into pieces
1 ½  sleeves of graham crackers, broken into squares

Preheat oven to 375 F.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon to combine. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter with both sugars until light and fluffy.  Add egg and vanilla.

Add flour mixture to the butter mixer and combine on low speed.

Fold in chips and marshmallows. 

Lay out graham crackers side by side on a 13x9 rimmed baking sheet as close as possible.  Touching is fine.  Place tablespoon scoop of dough in the center of each graham crackers square.  Press down slightly with small spatula.

Bake for 6 minutes then remove from oven to press Hershey’s bar pieces on to the top.  Bake for 6 – 8 more minutes or until dough is beginning to turn golden brown at the edges.  Remove to a wire rack to cool.

Yes, it would be difficult to keep these around the house with kids. I have yet to meet a kid that doesn't like smores! Great post of a classic flavor combination.

Oh my word I am in love! It would be so hard to just eat one of those. I would have to eat them all and then nothing would be left for anyone else. Love this idea. Taking a classic and making it into something fun and different!

I love these! I love the presentation it is soooo cute! I love that milk glass! Where in the world did that come from? I bet these are soooo yummy after a day in the pool to have and get the camp fire feeling without having the actual campfire heat! Especially since I don’t think we have had a low temp that was not in the 90's and 90 degrees at 9pm does not make you want a campfire but you always want s'mores!

Thanks for this recipe! I just made them tonight and they are definitely yummy!! Towards the end though, the bottom of them burned very quickly, is there something I'm doing wrong?? does it matter what side of the graham cracker that you have facing up?
