With summer in full swing, I figured a smores recipe was in order. (Nothing like heating the oven up on a humid day!) These are a chocolate cookie topped with a Graham cracker cookie and frosted with toasted marshmallow frosting the topped with melted milk chocolate. This basically is a chocolate chip cookie dough, divided in half with a few ingredients added to each divided half to get the chocolate and graham cracker cookie dough. I tossed some milk chocolate chips in the graham cracker cookie. You can leave them out or also add some to the chocolate cookie too.
I chilled these cookie dough mounds overnight. They still spread and are huge, but I felt the chilling of the dough was still beneficial. Remember to scoop your dough from your flour bag into your container so you get the right amount. Also, preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so you get to the right temp.
- Cookies ingredients
- 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 tbs vanilla
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- Additional 1/4 cup flour
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbs cornstarch
- 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 cup baking cocoa
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
Directions- cream butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Fold in 3 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and cornstarch. Divide dough in half. To one half, blend in graham cracker crumbs. Divide into 12 even size pieces. Roll into balls and slightly flatten. To other half, add baking cocoa and remaining 1/4 cup flour. Divide into 12 even size pieces. Roll into balls and slightly flatten.
Place a graham cracker flattened dough on top of a chocolate flatten dough.
Chill a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. On a cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners, stagger cookies. Bake 13 to 15 minutes (there will be light golden patches on the graham cracker cookie part). Cool completely.
- Toasted marshmallow frosting ingredients
- 1/2 cup butter melted
- 2-3 cups powdered sugar
- 12 regular size marshmallows, toasted
Directions- beat butter and powdered sugar. Add enough milk to get the consistency you want. Set aside
To toast marshmallows – set oven to high on broil. Line a pan with tin foil and spray with Pam. Broil marshmallows, checking after increments of 45 seconds, to make sure they don’t burn. Immediately add to butter mixture. Fost cooled cookies.
Top with melted chocolate. Store in covered container.
