Happy birthday to the sweetest, most beautiful sister-in-law in the world. As my only sister, I’d like to officially drop the “in-law” portion of the title, since she is everything I could ever want in a sister. I’m very much looking forward to being “physically” closer to Tara very soon.
“Soon” is actually coming very soon. Three weeks away to be exact! While I couldn’t be more excited about the move to Austin, a cross-country relocation is pretty darn overwhelming. I’m so thankful I have an amazing family and a great friend that’s helping me orchestrate and prepare.For a celebratory birthday treat, I thought I’d continue in the s’mores marathon with a s’mores cookie. It’s a brownie-type-cookie of sorts that chocked full of white and milk chocolate chips and, of course, mini-marshmallows. They’re uber-gooey and it’s recommended from s’more-cookie-connoisseurs treat yourself to these cookies cool from the refrigerator!
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup mini-marshmallows
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; Set aside.
- Cream butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy.
- Add in eggs one at a time, mixing well in between each addition.
- Add vanilla and salt. Mix well.
- In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, powder and soda. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing slowly.
- By hand mix in the chocolate chips and marshmallow.
- I made really big cookies using a 1/4 cup to scoop dough to a uniform-sized ball and gently flattening with my hand on the cookie sheet.
- Bake for about 12 minutes or until edges begin to harden.
- Let cool five minutes on the baking sheet then continue to cool on a rack. For yummiest results, store and serve from the refrigerator (or just eat them extra-gooey off the pan!)
It's also recommended that these cookies are served best with a s'mores milkshake in one hand and a s'mores pop in the other.
