S'mores Cookies

 {s'mores cookies}

Nothing says summer like s'mores! I was inspired by The Girl Who Ate Everything to make s'mores cookies, complete with a graham cracker crust & mini marshmallows! Perfect for the 4th of July! I made my classic chocolate chip recipe and added mini marshmallows, then topped the graham crackers with a 1-inch ball of dough before throwing them in the oven. They are reminiscent of the classic campfire treat with their gooey marshmallows and melted chocolate, but with all the qualities of a cookie. Yum!

Hope you all have a safe & fun-filled holiday weekend!

2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 vanilla pudding mix package
1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a stand mixer, combine butter and sugars.
Add vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda.
Add flour mixture slowly, stopping halfway to scrape the sides of the bowl.
Add vanilla pudding mix. Slowly mix in chocolate chips & marshmallows.
Carefully break graham crackers in half into square pieces and place on baking sheet.
Place 1-inch balls of cookies dough in the center of each graham cracker.
(I found that pressing down on the dough to flatten it a little helped it to cover the cracker better)
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Enjoy warm with a sprinkle of sea salt & glass of milk!
