This summer has been pretty busy for our little family. We’ve been traveling and spending lots of time taking little trips around Utah… none of which included a bonfire or campfire. Kids. I’m super nervous about having wee ones around giant flames. Can you blame me? That said, I’ve really been craving something with toasty mallows, melty chocolate and crunchy graham crackers. This recipe is totally kid-friendly and can easily be made without a giant open flame!
I used a standard chocolate chip cookie base, but folded in some finely ground graham cracker crumbs to give these cookies a little extra flavor. Such a good idea! Then I quartered some mini marshmallows so that there was just enough in the dough to get that caramelization when the cookies baked, but not enough to make the cookies flat and funky. Along with the mallows I added some coarsely chopped chocolate so that it would get really melty inside. Yumm!!
About half way through baking, I removed the cookies and pressed some marshmallows, graham cracker chunks and chocolate chunks on top, then returned the cookies to the oven. This allowed the marshmallows to puff up and turn golden brown without melting them and it allowed the chocolate to get soft. Once the cookies cooled off for a few minutes, they were devoured! These s’mores chocolate chip cookies were a huge hit with our family. I hope they’ll be a hit with yours too. Enjoy & happy baking!
