Monday Morning Mmmm: S’mores Cookies

I wasn’t sure about this latest installment in my Year o’ S’mores, but when my friend Amy opened up her care package (I love trying out these new recipes, but I cannot handle having the goodies in my house!), she declared her undying love for me.

So maybe they’re okay after all.

I can’t remember where I found new blogs to read and recipes to try before my days of Twitter, Stumble Upon and food carnivals – and coincidentally, I can’t remember which of those three places took me to My Baking Addiction and her giant s’mores cookies. But regardless of how I found it, I’m glad I did.

Go ahead. Click over and look at her giant cookies. She made them in a muffin top tin! They’re perfectly round! I love them!

I don’t own a muffin top tin, although I’d like to. So I scooped dough with an ice cream scoop onto cookie sheets and smashed them down a bit. It worked just fine, although nobody’s going to mistake my uniquely shaped cookies for ones baked in a muffin tin.

2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
3 regular size Hershey’s chocolate bars
3 graham crackers
Mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla with mixer until fluffy. (Mine was never “fluffy,” but that’s what recipes usually say. Fluffy.) In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt and baking soda. Mix well, then add to wet ingredients. Fold in chocolate chips.

Scoop dough onto cooking sheet or into extra large muffin tin. Press graham cracker pieces, marshmallows and chocolate squares on top of cookie dough. Bake for 11-13 minutes (or until edges begin turning brown). Serve while warm and just try to stop the smiles!

If I try this recipe again, I think I’ll add graham cracker crumbs to the dough and use marshmallow fluff and the chocolate bars for the toppings. Have you ever made – or eaten – s’mores cookies?

    My son is trying to take one off the computer screen. I think if I made them I might try Golden Grahams instead of actual graham crackers. Looks good!

      Let me know how it works with Golden Grahams. Since I happened to have some on hand, I was really tempted and would love to know how that turns out!

    Good-ness. Those look fantastic! What are you trying to do to me?

      Bring you down with me, of course! Haha! ;)

    It’s me again. The one who’s allergic to chocolate. We always made s’mores for my mom and me (she’s allergic too) with peanut butter in place of the chocolate. I could probably replace the choc chips with pb ones, and I bet it would be wonderful!

      Can you eat nutella? I don’t really love it, but I know other people do. And it’s kind of like chocolate, right?

    Oh yum!!! I need one of these, like now.

    Thanks for linking up with Sweet Tooth Friday again!

      Now, see, if I’d known that, I would have sent them to you! I just can’t keep goodies like this in my house without gorging myself!!

    Wow, I think I gain 5 pounds just looking at those cookies, they look so good! Next time all my kids are home they are the list of things to bake!

    1. Mary @ Giving Up on Perfect June 12, 2011 at 4:06 pm

      Smart thinking – make them for the kids and send the leftovers with them. Then, no pounds gained!
