birthday bunny!

June 1, 2011

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! 

S’mores Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
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
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; Set aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy.  
  3. Add in eggs one at a time, mixing well in between each addition.
  4. Add vanilla and salt.  Mix well.
  5. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, powder and soda.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing slowly.
  6. By hand mix in the chocolate chips and marshmallow.
  7. 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.  
  8. Bake for about 12 minutes or until edges begin to harden.  
  9. 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.

Jess, these sound wonderful...I'm not even a fan of s'mores but I'd eat these, love the deep brown color!

Thanks so much Cassie! I've never actually been a huge s'more-lover because I could live without the graham crackers. It's always been about the chocolate! That's what's great about these cookies! :)
