My kids LOVE s'mores and the other night our little elf had started a fire, was roasting a marshmallow and had set out everything to make s'mores...what a surprise!
The next day I had leftover chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows so we decided to make s'mores cookies. The kids loved them even more than the traditional smore's. I may keep these cookies on hand in the freezer to use in place of graham crackers next time we roast marshmallows.

S’mores Cookies
Adapted from 6 sisters
Makes approx. 3 dozen cookies


1 cup graham cracker crumbs 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature 1/2 cup light brown sugar 1/3 cup granulated sugar 1 large egg 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 18 large marshmallows, cut in half About 36 small chocolate pieces

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  In a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside. In another bowl, beat the butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth.  Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined.  Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.  Use a small cookie scoop and drop dough onto a parchement-lined baking sheet, 1-2″ apart.  Bake for 8 minutes or until edges are just turning golden brown.  Remove from oven and gently press 1/2 of a Hershey chocolate rectangle in the cookie 
Turn the oven broiler on high and put the cookies with the chocolate under the broiler for about 30 seconds just until chocolate is melted (the chocolate will hold its shape even when its melted). Pull out cookies and set a half marshmallow, sticky side down, onto each cookie. Place cookies back in oven and broil for about 1 minute, keeping a close eye on them so they don’t burn.  Once marshmallows are golden brown, remove from the broiler and stick a chocolate piece in each marshmallow. If the marshmallow's crust is hard just use a small paring knife to cut into the crust to stick the chocolate piece in.
