I love everything about Summer! From the heat to the beach, the magical Sunsets and late nights, the warm Sunrises and crisp Texas watering holes. Summer is my absolute favorite season. One of the things that comes to mind when I think about this toasty season is S’mores! My kids love this tasty summer treat, and we make them as often as we can during the summer months. For this week’s bake I’m baking cookies inspired by this classic summer snack. Below is the recipe for my easy S’mores Cookies along with my Tips, Tricks, And Don’ts that I did.
- 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon of baking powder
- ½ teaspoon of baking soda
- 1 teaspoon of corn starch
- 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) of unsalted butter (room temperature)
- ¾ cup of light brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- 1 cup of mini marshmallows (chopped)
- 1 bar Hershey’s Chocolate (chopped)
- 4 Graham crackers (chopped)
- Roughly chop the Graham crackers, Hershey’s bar, and the mini marshmallows.
- Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and corn starch in a bowl then whisk together and set aside.
- Using a stand or hand mixer, beat butter and sugars in a bowl until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add in egg and vanilla until combined.
- Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating on low speed until just combined.
- Fold the chocolate chips, chopped marshmallows, Hershey’s bar, and graham crackers into the dough, making sure to mix thoroughly.
- Refrigerate dough for at least an hour.
- Heat oven to 350F. Portion out about two tablespoons sized pieces of dough. Roll into balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
- Bake at 350° for 12 minutes or until cookies are toasty brown.
- Cool and Enjoy!
Tips, Tricks, and Don’ts That I Did
- Make sure to chop or tear your marshmallows into tiny bits. Marshmallows puff up and spread when heated. If they are too big, they will create a giant sticky mess of a cookie.
- Don’t skimp on refrigerating the dough. Cold dough makes soft cookies.
- I had a few different kinds of chocolate chips in my pantry and used a little bit of each. Feel free to choose your own chocolate for this cookie. I bet dark chocolate S’mores Cookies would be heavenly!
- For a little toastier flavor, top warm cookies with marshmallow bits and heat with a blowtorch.
- These cookies are best enjoyed warm. You can reheat them in the microwave for 5 seconds to get the marshmallows back to their former gooey glory.
