Before you all close up shop for the weekend, maybe to enjoy the real kick-off to summer with a BBQ or family potluck, I have one last recipe to share. I don’t personally have big holiday plans, but I did make these awesome cookies which to me represent everything to come in the next 3 months. When I think of S’mores I think of cook-outs and camp fires and card games at the picnic table. These cookies are a cross between the messy-gooey treats I grew up loving, and a simple chocolate chip cookie. The edges are crispy, the middles are chewy, and they are full of marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate chunk. Are you as excited as I am?
I’m also excited about these cookies because this is the first thing I’m posting on this blog that was baked, photographed, edited and written all by myself. Meaning- I managed this without a helping hand to entertain the baby so I could work. I did it you guys! I figured out how to do things during his nap even though they are short. We have to celebrate these small acheivements right?
Anyway, I think these cookies are delicious and special and perfect for a last minute addition to your weekend plans. They really taste like S’mores, with help of my handy blow-torch, which I used to toast the marshmallow a bit after these came out of the oven. It was so worth it for that slightly-burnt taste that I absolutely adore. If you like S’mores- you’ll love these. Have a great long weekend everyone!
