S’more Cookies

I was having a bit of a chocolate craving on Sunday.

Although I like chocolate I usually will choose another flavor over chocolate but on Sunday the only flavor that would satisfy was chocolate.

One of my favorite things to add to chocolate is marshmallows.  I love a bowl of chocolate ice cream with a handful of mini marshmallows all mixed up together.  I’ve eaten it that way since I was a kid.

Well what is one of the first things that comes to mind when you think of chocolate and marshmallows?  S’mores!

S'MORES COOKIES

I had found a recipe for S’more Cookies in that nifty little cookie cookbook I bought a while back and I figured this chocolate craving was the perfect opportunity to give them a try.

The recipe calls for chocolate pudding mix and dark chocolate chips.  I opted for semi sweet since I’m not a dark chocolate fan.  The addition of marshmallows and graham cracker crumbs makes it a S’more in cookie form.

The recipe calls for graham cracker crumbs but I think next time I make them I will try it out with just chopped graham crackers so you actually end up with little chunks of graham cracker.

I loved the combination and did not think they were overly chocolate.

To make them a little prettier, I added some marshmallows into the dough once I had formed the balls of cookie dough on the cookie sheet before baking them.  I just stuck 2-3 marshmallows into the top of each cookie.  I love how they browned up in the oven, looking  just like they had been roasted over the fire.

Thanks to the pudding mix the cookie is a nice soft, chewy cookie.  The perfect solution to your next chocolate craving.

    Dee-licious!!!! Didn’t have enough mini marshmallows for the whole batch so I cut regular marshmallows in half and then pressed a half into each cookie. The appearance was nice and the kids really liked the extra gooey-ness of the larger marshmallow. They also liked the way the marshmallows (both regular and mini) toasted up just like a s’more. I hope these cookies are just as delicious the next day as I plan to give them to a couple of friends who are celebrating birthdays tomorrow. Thank you for sharing yet another scrumptious recipe!!!!!

    I love, love chocolate and marshmallows together. I too put handfuls of marshmallows over my chocolate ice cream. I also like a handful of mini Nilla Wafers on my ice cream too.. I may try substituting crushed Nilla Wafers in place of the graham crackers.

    Leigh Anne,
    I made these this morning and didn’t have any graham crackers, so I turned them into Rocky Road cookies, with the addition of pecans!! SO GOOD!!

    These were really good and quick to make. I used 1/2 graham crumbs and 1/2 graham cracker pieces. They were a huge hit with my son and his friends.

    I clicked over to the link for your “nifty little cookbook”, and as I was checking it out online I saw a recipe for Chocolate Orange Crinkles. They sound so fantastic! Oh, no! Now I’m tempted to buy yet another cookie cookbook, which I cannot justify!! My daughter has laid down the law that if I buy a new cookbook, I have to donate a different cookbook to D.I.

    I made these today for a coworker’s birthday! They were delicious! I used mostly graham cracker pieces…it made them a little hard to handle and they broke apart more easily, but the look was definitely more s’more-ish!
