It's almost camping season! I guess that depends on where you live. Here in the Antarctic (ok, ok, Montana), we still have at LEAST a few weeks to go before we could possibly predict an above- freezing night. But in the mean time, have some cookies.
This is a recipe I modified a bit from Two Peas and Their Pod. I made my cookies full size and switched up some ingredients a bit.
Here is a campfire video courtesy of YouTube. Just to set the mood while you're snacking on your cookies.
Give Me S'More Cookies
Makes ~18-20 cookies
1 cup graham cracker crumbs (place graham crackers into a baggie and roll with a rolling pin-- a few chunks in there is fine)
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips
~1/2 cup mini marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a smaller mixing bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, and baking soda.
In a larger mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars with a mixer. Add egg and vanilla extract and mix until well-combined (2-3 minutes).
Add dry ingredients into wet, a small amount at a time. Mix until just combined. Add in chocolate chips and mix to distribute evenly.
Roll 1 Tbsp batter into a ball and place balls on a lightly greased baking sheet ~ 1 1/2" apart. Gently press two mini marshmallows into the top of each ball (try to keep ball formation as much as possible). Bake for ~8 minutes, until cookies are set and marshmallows are slightly melted.
Switch oven to high broil and lightly toast marshmallows prior to removing from oven-- watch them carefully (unless you like charred marshmallows-- which some people do!).
Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack or wax paper to cool completely. Enjoy!
