cherrywinks and make it s'moretastic! They have a very tasty cake like consistency due to the baking powder utilized instead of baking soda, and puff up nicely. The key with cherry winks are the dates in them that keep the cookies super moist and as they sit, they continue to improve in taste after a couple of days. Because I am using chocolate instead of dates and cherries, it's a toss up as to if they will improve and become denser in taste as the day goes on. You can see because of this texture that the cookies held in the chocolate and marshmallow pieces very well, with only bits of the marshmallow to seep out leaving a carmelized texture in it's wake. Here's how it goes:
Prep all the ingredients first. Because I didn't have mini marshmallows, I cut up 3 or 4 giant marshmallows (about 1 1/2 cups cut up) and coated them in flour in a bowl to keep the pieces from sticking together in clumps. Chop up the Hershey bar into pieces to place on top of the cookies. Now pour about a cup of graham cracker crumbs into a bowl for rolling the cookies in.
S'More Cookie Recipe
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 tsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
3/4 cup chocolate chips (or more if you like)
Half of a Giant Hershey bar, with squares cut into thirds or fourths. Better yet, use chocolate Hershey kisses for the tops of the cookies.
1 cup of graham cracker crumbs
Cream softened butter, eggs, and vanilla together. Mix the dry ingredients together evenly in a bowl and add to the creamed butter mixture. Gently mix in the chocolate chips and marshmallows. The dough will be sticky.
Set the oven to 350 degrees. Drop teaspoon fulls of dough (and be sure to get the yummy chocolate chips in each spoonful) into the bowl of graham crumbs, and place on a greased cookie sheet, about an inch and a half apart. Bake for about 8 mins (you don't want to dry them out, so use your nose when they smell done). I often like to underbake my cookies and let them sit on the pan to finish cooking:-) Voila! C'est Fini!
