S’mores Cookies Recipe from the FireGirls
(adapted from the-girl-who-ate-everything.com)
It’s camping season, but if you can’t actually go camping this year, this cookie is a great way to bring a time honored camping treat into your home. A taste of camping without all the fuss and the bugs and inevitably the rain. These cookies are also a great alternative if you have rambunctious kids and you’re not keen on handing them a couple of sharpened sticks and saying, ‘Here go stand by this fire.’
There is a lot going on in this cookie!! They are a bit large… possibly closer to meal sized than cookie sized, but the calories don’t count when you’re camping, or pretending to camp.
You might take a look at this recipe and see cinnamon and think, ‘that’s a bit odd, maybe it doesn’t belong there?’ You’d be WRONG, the cinnamon absolutely makes this cookie. Don’t get rid of it, trust us we know. We have done our fair share of sampling.
11 tbsp unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 ½ cups flour
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup marshmallows
2 large Hershey bars broken into segments
1 box Graham crackers
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Cream together your butter and sugars, add the eggs and vanilla mix well. Add all of the dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips and marshmallows. The dough smells fantastic at this point and if you’re inclined to sample it go ahead and taste it. You won’t be sorry.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cover your parchment with graham crackers all pressed side by side and place a scoop of cookie dough in the center of each graham cracker. Bake for 6 minutes and remove from the oven. Press one piece of Hershey’s chocolate in the center of the cookie and bake 4-5 minutes longer until golden and the edges are set.
These are hot… Safety first!
While you may be tempted to dig in right away, we have found that they are better if you have the restraint to let them cool completely.
Eating with friends is mandatory, campfire songs are advised but optional.
