S’mores Chocolate Chip Cookies

Summertime is almost (officially) upon us! Time for vacation, late nights, and camping trips. Well, for most people. I’m not a huge fan of camping, but I do enjoy a good s’more every now and then.  You don’t have to be sleeping under the stars to enjoy a s’more- you can just make them inside your oven. And with these cookies, you don’t have to deal with a messy sandwich to enjoy the taste of s’mores.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I do love the mess and taste of a traditional s’more- most of the time. But when I want a mess free, cookiefied experience, I reach for these cookies. Plus, these are much more portable than a normal s’more- you can take these everywhere when the craving for campfires and ray ban baratas daydreams of stargazing hit. After all, summer vacation doesn’t really exist after high school/ college. Sadly. Unless you’re a teacher.

I took my mom’s famous chocolate chip cookies, and mixed in graham cereal, marshmallow bits, and of coarse, chocolate chip cookies. I also browned the butter for a nutty, deeper, taste. (And also because brown butter makes everything better!) These cookies were popular! I took them to a game night and they went fast. There were only 8 people at game night- and I took nearly 3 dozen cookies. You will be the most popular person in the room wherever you take these cookies, I promise.
