S’mores Cookies

It seems that my offer went over well with Mother Nature…even though it’s still on the chilly side out there, there’s been no more snow to speak of, and for that I am very thankful. Now, we can get back to all things spring…and even a little bit of summer. My friend Shelly over at Cookies & Cups has been doing a S’mores Week on her blog all week, so I’ve been dreaming about going camping and one of my favorite parts, sitting around the campfire talking and making s’mores. Since I was really craving cookies one night this week, I decided to take that inspiration and whip up a batch of s’mores cookies. Not only are these cookies fun to make when you want a little taste of summer, but I’m thinking about making them for our next camping trip since I think they’d make a great portable snack to take on a walk or hike. Hope you enjoy the cookies, and if you’re looking for more s’more-inspired desserts, head on over to Shelly’s blog!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until pale and fluffy.

Add in the egg and vanilla, and beat an additional 1-2 minutes.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and graham cracker or cereal crumbs.

Add the dry ingredients gradually to the wet ingredients, and mix on low speed until the dough comes together. Stir in the chocolate and marshmallows.

Since the marshmallows can be a little hard to incorporate into the batter, use your hands to form the dough into 1 1/2 tablespoon-sized balls, and then place them on the prepared sheet. Update: One of my readers commented that they had a problem with the marshmallows melting out of the cookies and making them stick to the parchment, which I saw in a few of my cookies as well – and I’ve decided the best way to combat this is to stuff the marshmallows into the center of the cookie dough balls. That way you get a nice, melty marshmallow center, and the cookie stays intact.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Some of them might be a little lumpy from the marshmallows, and that’s okay.

Once the cookies are cool, dip the bottoms in the melted chocolate. Let sit upside-down until the chocolate firms up. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.

Want more s’mores? Don’t forget to check out the lovely mini s’mores whoopie pies by Liz of Little Bitty Bakes and gooey red velvet s’mores bars by Jessica of How Sweet It Is, which they made for me while I was on vacation on San Diego – they’re both too fabulous for words!

  12. Oooh, so pretty! I like that they turned out lumpy–it makes the cookies more fun to eat if you’re anticipating a gooey marshmallow bite or a sweet chocolate bite!

  18. These look absolutely amazing! I’ a senior in high school and I’m graduating in about 3 weeks, and I could not be more excited about summer. These cookies scream “summer” (and “I’m tasty! Eat me!”!)

    I can’t wait to try these!!! 😀

  20. Ooooh! They must be delicious! Chocolate and Marshmallows! Wow!
    Where I come from, we don’t bake with Marshmallows.
    When the cookies are cold, does the Mm goes back to its initial texture?

    Would be great if you’d join the “International and Virtual Cookie Swap” on:

  28. Those cookies look terrific. I cannot wait to make them and eat them all!!!!

    by carolinaheartstrings on Apr 30, 2012 at 9:30 pm

  29. I have to tell you – these are a new family fave. I absolutely adore them. We made them without the dipping chocolate and they were still sweet and wonderful!

    by CariP on May 14, 2012 at 1:26 pm

  30. I’m not sure what went wrong, but I seemed to have a much different experience based on the other comments! I followed the recipe perfectly (only I skipped the dipping part) but my cookies were a disaster. The dough (if you can call it that) was too dry to stick, so I had to add canola oil to even form the cookies. The marshmallows burst and spread all over the parchment paper. Out of a little more than 3 dozen cookies, about 6 look like actual cookies. The rest are a mess. I’m very disappointed.

  31. Jolier – I’m sorry the cookies didn’t turn out for you! I double-checked the recipe to make sure that I had written everything down correctly, and it looks okay, so I’m not sure what may have went wrong. I hope your next cookie-making experience turns out better, though!
