When you think of summer, S’mores always find their way into the equation. Whether around the campfire or fire pit, they are a wonderful summer treat. I have many memories of making them in Girl Scouts as a young child and now with my own family.
I was grocery shopping last week and my daughter started grabbing bags of chocolate chips. She had found a new mix by Hershey’s for S’mores cookies. The package included chocolate chips, graham cookie pieces and mini marshmallows. We decided that we had to try them out.
S’mores Pieces Cookies- (Recipe from Hershey’s)
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-3/4 cups (7-oz. pkg.) HERSHEY’S S’mores Baking Pieces, divided
1. Heat oven to 350° F.
2. Beat butter and brown sugar in large bowl until well blended. Add egg and vanilla; beat until thoroughly blended. In a medium bowl stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add into butter mixture and mix until just combined. *Set aside 1/2 cup baking pieces; stir remaining pieces into cookie dough.
3. Drop dough by heaping teaspoons (I like to use a cookie scoop for uniform sized cookies) onto ungreased cookie sheets. (I like to line mine with parchment or Silpat) Randomly push reserved baking pieces into tops of unbaked cookies.
4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
These cookies were really tasty and met with rave reviews. The decadent chocolate with the soft marshmallow and graham crunch are a perfect trio of flavors. Make these cookies for a camping trip or package some up for your kids teachers as a warm welcome into the new school year.
