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!
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.
1/4 C sugar
3/4 C brown sugar
1 C butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 (4oz.) pkg. chocolate instant pudding mix (dry)
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/4 C flour
1 C semi sweet chocolate chips
1 C marsmallows plus extra for topping
1 C crushed or chopped graham crackers
Cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla, eggs and pudding mix.
In another bowl add together the flour and baking soda and gently fold in the wet ingredients. Add in chocolate chips, marshmallows and graham crackers.
Use a cookie scoop and drop dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Press 2-3 marshmallows into the scoop of cookie dough.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack.
