"Those s'more cookies are awesome, Mom!"




That's what my son just told me as I sat down to write a quick post about these cookies, so I'm using that as my title today!

I found this amazing recipe for Gooey S'mores Cookies by Amanda on her blog Kevin and Amanda earlier this week.  

We made them yesterday and they were truly so tasty that I had to share them with you! 

The cookie part is just wonderful and the Mini Hershey Kisses and the melty marshmallows put them over the top!!   








I did use the Mini Hershey Kisses and the cinnamon graham crackers that Amanda recommends, but I used the regular small marshmallows, not the really, really tiny size that she used in her recipe.

 I didn't need to go to Target yesterday, which is where it seems that you can find the really, really, extra tiny marshmallows, and I wanted to make these as soon as I could, so the regular small marshmallows would have to do.

You know the size I'm talking about, right?

Anyway, they worked well in the recipe, but the next time I make them, and that will be soon, I'll be sure to check that the marshmallows are near the top of the cookies or all the way underneath the cookies when I put them on the baking sheet.

You see, they tend to melt out the side if they are directly on the baking sheet at the side of the cookie. 

 No big deal, they still taste absolutely amazing, but I'm planning to bring them to a Fourth Of July gathering and watching the placement of the marshmallows would make all of them "take to a friend's house quality", if you know what I mean.

Or, I could just not worry about the marshmallows, keep the odd looking ones here, and eat them myself.

Hmmmm. I'll have to think about that option.

This recipe is definitely worth a try if you are looking for a sweet summer treat.

Oh, and not nearly as messy as traditional s'mores!
