S’more Chocolate Chip Cookies –
These may just be the best cookies ever. You mix real graham cracker crumbs in with the flour to get that classic s’more taste. Milk chocolate chips dot the chewy base and oven toasted marshmallows give you gooey fire-side goodness without the fire. Mmm…I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.
We start with marshmallows. Cut them in half with kitchen scissors. Non-stick cooking spray is your friend here! It helps the blades glide through the stickiness. Set those aside and we’ll get started on the dry ingredients.
Combine graham cracker crumbs (the secret ingredient), with flour, cornstarch (the other secret ingredient), baking soda, and salt. The crumbs add real s’more flavor and the cornstarch helps these cookies stay perfectly soft and chewy.
You can grind your own graham crackers in a food processor or go the
lazy efficient route like me and buy them already crushed in the baking section of the store.
Add vanilla, one egg, and one egg yolk.
Stir in the dry ingredients and milk chocolate chips until just combined.
A cookie scoop makes this job so easy. This one is excellent.
Within about a minute, they should be nice and toasty. Watch them closely though because they go from brown to burnt in a snap.
Cool them for a few minutes on cookie sheets then move them over to a wire rack to cool completely (or to cool just enough to enjoy the ooey gooey fresh s’more cookie taste without burning off your tongue).
While they cool, melt milk chocolate to drizzle on top. Pour the melted chocolate into a sandwich bag (placing the bag in a cup helps with this) and snip a small corner to turn it into a pastry bag.
For a finishing touch (because I never really know when to stop) drizzle that melted chocolate on top of your s’more chocolate chip cookies.
There you have it, all your favorite s’more flavors in a chewy, gooey s’more cookie. Since they remind you of great times with friends and family at cookouts, campouts, and parties, they’re the perfect rainy day comfort cookies.
