April's Secret Recipe Club - S'mores Cookies

It's time for another month of The Secret Recipe Club!

For April I was assigned to Jamie's blog Cookin' with Moxie. As always, there were so many wonderful recipes to choose from, but I settled on her s'mores cookies, because I had the graham crackers and marshmallows to use up from my pb&j s'mores

























These cookies didn't disappoint. My dumb butt kept putting them back in though for longer than the recipe called for because the marshmallows weren't melting. Then the marshmallows got kinda brown so I took them out, and then the marshmallows ended up being a bit chewy and the cookies a bit crisp but still delicious. Next time I'll put them in for less, maybe the length the recipe actually calls for. I also did not turn mine half way through like Jamie did, so maybe that would also be a good suggestion.
























S'mores Cookies 
ever-so-slightly adapted from Cookin' with Moxie
  • 3/4 cup (1 and 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs (I crushed some whole graham crackers up in the food processor)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • about 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 2 Hershey bars, chopped up
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a stand mixer, combine the butter and sugars until fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla until combined. Add the flour, graham cracker crumbs, salt, and baking soda, and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Spray cookie sheets with baking spray or cover with parchment paper. Drop tablespoon-full scoops of the batter onto cookie sheets. Bake for 8 minutes and remove from the oven. Push 3 to 4 marshmallows and a few pieces of Hershey bar into each cookie. Return to the oven and bake an additional 3-4 minutes until fully cooked. Cool cookies on wire rack(s). Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

I always struggle with just how long to bake cookies. This looks like a great SRC pick.
Have a great day!

Danielle said...

My husband would love these! I'm one of the weird ones out there that doesn't like marshmallows though. I'm sure he and my children would have no trouble polishing off a batch of these!

Rachel Cannon Humiston said...

Tina @ MOMS CRAZY COOKING said...

Just made a batch of these myself! Love it! Visiting from SRC!

What a great idea!! S'mores cookies. Sounds like heaven. I love the browned colour your marshmallows took on... maybe next time instead of cooking them for longer, just broil them for the last minute or two... then your marshmallows will melt and take on a pretty toasty colour, but cookies won't over bake!! Glad to be in Group C with you. :)

Yum! I love everything S'mores and these look scrumptious. I think I will make these and send them to my son who is away at school. He will love them too. Great recipe choice!

Tracey M. said...

Wow, what a fantastic idea to put smores into cookie form!! That would surely be a hit in our home. Have to pin it!!

No way. These are genius! I am making them as soon as the nephews come over.

Avanika [YumsiliciousBakes] said...

Ah yum! Nothing better than a s'more baked something, other than a real s'more, maybe :)

Jenn said...

They look amazing!! AND, because of the extra long baking time, it gives you an excuse to "try again" You can never go wrong there when it comes to cookies!!
P.s...usually rotating your pan halfway through the cooking process it so ensure even cooking. Most ovens burn hotter on one side than the other... at least that is what I was told once by a very old, very wise woman... she could have been feeding me a line too, but I've stuck with the theory and it's never done me wrong :)

These really do look wonderful. I'm new here, so I've spent some time browsing through your earlier posts. I'm so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Your S'mores cookies look like a real treat! Even if you do feel you left them in too long, chewy marshmallows are no bad thing, nor are crispy cookies!

Chris said...

Sounds good, maybe next time cook them closer to the top of the oven to get more reflective heat hitting the tops of the cookies? What the hell do I know, I don't bake ;)

Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust said...

Oh, yum. I could eat a whole batch! I love love love S'mores Cookies!

Jocelyn said...

I just love s'mores flavor in anything!!! These cookies would be gone in an instant in our house:-)
