I know I'm doing something that is just so rude. Please don't despise me for it, Erin.
Anytime I hear of a combination of chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallow, I immediately hone in on smore's. I mean, it's only natural. The entire time I was making these cookies, I kept referring to them as s'mores cookies. I couldn't help it! I finally stopped fighting it. They will be called S'mores Cookies. So sorry.
By the way, these are fluffy, delicious little things! I may have taste tested quite a few of them. It was necessary though. Since my big move, I haven't yet realized exactly what I'm missing from my cooking/baking stash. What I found out this weekend was that I lack a second baking sheet. You may not think that is a problem, but when a recipe makes 3 dozen cookies and you can only bake 8 - 10 per baking sheet....you have a long afternoon ahead of you. Alright, it wasn't that tragic, but you get my drift.
Back to the deliciousness. These cookies weren't as sweet as I thought they would be, which is probably a good thing given that I taste-tested 1-2 cookies per batch. (If you don't want to do that math, I made 4 batches of these cookies, sooo...) One thing that I would love to experiment with is doubling the amount of chocolate, graham crackers,and marshmallow mix-ins. I know I just said I loved the taste, but as one of my favorite YouTubers always says "Why be subtle?"
