20--- Give Me S'more Cookies

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!


  1. Yum! I love s'mores and these are portable! :) Great idea!

  2. This was a yummy recipe! I used my kitchen torch to brown the top, but otherwise followed along. They should be a hit at work tomorrow. :)
