This S’mores Cookies Recipe has the goodness of the classic summer treat stuffed into a cookie complete with a toasted marshmallow and chocolate on top.
Although I know that s’mores can be eaten year-round, they are one of those treats that make me think about summer. When I was a teenager, my family moved from a suburb with shopping malls and fast food restaurants, to the “country” with gravel roads and horse farms. I couldn’t believe they would do such a thing to me, but I came to love the new area and the quieter life.
One of the joys of living on five acres was having bonfires. That first summer we had a fire most evenings, our friends were always over and s’mores were almost always involved. I still love the classic s’mores and I am excited to share my recipe for S’mores Cookies with a toasted marshmallow on the top!
Cream together butter and shortening. Mix in the brown sugar and granulated sugar. Then, add the vanilla and egg. Next, mix in the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda and salt. Finally, stir in mini Hershey’s Kisses, by hand. I found the mini kisses in the baking aisle, but if you are unable to find them, you can use use milk chocolate chips instead.
Scoop the cookie dough onto cookie sheets. I used a one tablespoon dough scoop. Bake at 375 degrees for six minutes.
Remove from the oven and quickly put a marshmallow on each cookie, pressing down gently to help hold them in place.
Return them to the oven and continue baking the cookies for another two minutes. Then, turn on the broiler and toast the marshmallows. Mine took about 90 seconds, but watch them carefully!
Remove from the oven and press a piece of a Hershey’s bar into each toasted marshmallow.
Zack hung around the kitchen, snatching cookie as they cooled. They are delicious while still warm with the gooey marshmallow and melted chocolate. These cookies can be stored for a couple of days, but since the marshmallow is sticky, store them in a single layer or layered with waxed paper.
It’s the first day of July and we still have two months of summer ahead of us! Enjoy every minute of it and whip up a batch of S’mores Cookies to help celebrate.
