S'mores Cookies- Big Green House

Summer is right around the corner ( 🤞)

Soon we will be knee deep in sunny days, swimming in the lake, eating ice cream and sitting by the fire pit in the evening dining on homemade s’mores. Sounds kinda nice, doesn’t it?

Until then, we are making thumbprint cookies with the same classic taste of those s’mores- –graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate. YUM.

Thumbprint cookie? Before baking the cookies, you will press your thumbprint into the ball of cookie dough to form a well. The well can be filled with a variety of fillings. Our well is filled with a marshmallow 😉

Ingredients List:

  • Flour
  • Graham cracker crumbs
  • Butter
  • Brown sugar
  • Vanilla
  • Egg
  • Large marshmallows
  • Chocolate bars

Brown sugar: If desired, coconut palm sugar can be used as a replacement.

Marshmallows: I found that large/standard size marshmallows cut in half were the easier to work with. However, you can use mini marshmallows. Use 2-3 mini marshmallows ( for each cookie) in place of the standard size cut in half.

Chocolate bars: I used 2-3 standard size Hershey’s chocolate bars, broken into squares. You can substitute with any type of chocolate bar or chocolate chips, if desired. You simply want to be able to cover a good portion of the marshmallow, once the chocolate is melted.

How to Make:

  • First, make your dough. Then, scoop a few teaspoons of dough and roll into a ball.
  • Take your thumb and gently press into the ball of dough, to create a well. Bake for just 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly brown.
  • Remove your cookies from the oven. Place half of a marshmallow (sticky side down) and carefully press it down into the well of each cookie. Return to the oven and bake just another 2-3 minutes. You want the marshmallows just start getting fluffy.
  • Next, place a square of chocolate on top of each warm marshmallow. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes. This will warm up the chocolate and make it easier to spread. If you want so speed up this process, pop them back in the oven for about 30 seconds- 1 minute.
  • After the chocolate is soft/warmer, gently spread it over the marshmallow.
  • Let the chocolate set before serving ( if you can wait that long!)
