National S’mores Day

Today is National S’mores Day! What a great food celebration! S’mores are a classic summer treat. Whether your on the beach sitting around a camp fire, or in your kitchen roasting a marshmallow on your stove top, S’mores are a delicious confection!

I had come across a picture of a S’mores using a Reese’s peanut butter cup in place of the classic piece of  Hershey’s Bar. And then it hit me! Combine the classic flavors of a s’mores into a cookie! And then use that cookie to make a S’more!

Here is my recipe:

 

Ingredients:

2 cups all purpose flour

3/4 cup roughly crushed graham crackers

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

3/4 cup white sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup + 1/4 cup mini marshmallows

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 cups mini Reese’s peanut butter cups

 

Procedure:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. In a stand mixer, cream together butter, sugars and vanilla. Add in eggs one at a time.

2. Add flour, graham cracker crumbs, salt and baking soda to butter and sugar mixture. Combine well.

3. Fold in 1 cups of the marshmallows, chocolate chips and Reese’s.

4. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and scope dough 1 inch apart on the baking sheet. Be sure that none of the marshmallows are on the edges of the cookie.

5. Bake until golden brown; about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and top each cookie with two or three mini marshmallows place under broiler for 1 minute.

6. Enjoy! 🙂
