One of my favorite dessert combinations is that of chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers. However, I hate how sticky and messy regular s’mores can be. After Elyse shared her recipe for S’mores Bars, I started thinking of how good all the ingredients of s’mores would be in a cookie. I googled a couple of recipes and stumbled on this one.
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips (mini chips would be really cute for these cookies)
1/2 cup Jet-Puffed Vanilla Mallow Bits*
Extra chocolate chips and mallow bits (optional)
*I found these cute mini marshmallow bits at Target for about $3 . . . however, if you can’t find them, I think that you could still use regular mini marshmallows. They might not hold their shape like these little marshmallow bits and they will probably melt and turn gooey, but that is one of the best parts of a s’more! 🙂
2. In a large bowl, whisk together graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
3. In another bowl, beat the butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth. Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
4. Stir in the Mallow Bits and chocolate chips and mix until just combined.
5. Drop a heaping tablespoon of dough on the baking sheet. I stuck in a few extra chocolate chips and Mallow Bits onto the top of the dough for looks, but you can skip this step if you wish. Keep cookies spread about 1-2″ apart. Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until cookies are set. Cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes and transfer to a wire cooling rack.
