You’ve heard that saying, “sometimes you just gotta have fun?” Well, for me it’s in the kitchen making S’mores today. I love making chocolate chip cookies that are soft, moist, and gooey. And I love making S’mores. Recently I taught a gardening class in a local church group and they served typical S’mores with graham crackers, marshmallows, and a Hershey chocolate square. The weather was raining like crazy so they broiled them in the oven. They were delicious!
So, you can see today, I made a little different recipe using the same ingredients plus chocolate chip cookies. If you have grandkids, this will be so fun to make with them. You could also teach your local church group how to make these for a cooking and or a baking experience. We really need to teach kids how to cook from scratch, if they aren’t learning how to do it at home.
Graham Crackers With Frosting
Did you grow up eating some frosting on graham crackers? If my mother had leftover frosting after making a cake, we would lather some graham crackers with the frosting in between to make a sandwich-style treat. Aren’t memories fun?
Kitchen Tools Needed
Let’s Make The S’mores
I wish you could smell the aroma when making these gems! One of my addictions is chocolate, I’m not going to lie!
Cream The Ingredients
The first thing I did was cream the butter, eggs, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Then I added the remaining ingredients for the cookies, except the chocolate chips.
Using a hand mixer helps with the cookie dough, although you could use a wooden spoon to mix up the cookies.
Fold The Chocolate Chips Into The Dough
Then you fold in the chocolate chips.
Scoop The Dough
Now, you grease the cookie sheets and scoop the cookie dough onto the pan. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for about 8 minutes.
Time To Broil
After the cookies are baked, top each one with a marshmallow and broil them ever so quickly! I did it in my oven for about 30 seconds.
Add The Chocolate & Layer
After the marshmallows are lightly browned, remove the sheet from the oven and top each cookie one with a mini Hershey’s chocolate square. Then layer the cookies as shown above. They are tall and super fun to make!
