Smore Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love a good cookie and I have been developing cookie recipes trying to find the perfect “signature” cookie.  I believe I finally made the perfect cookie.  These Smore Chocolate Chip Cookies are the most amazing cookies.  I have had multiple people tell me that they would pay me to bake them these cookies.  They are THAT GOOD!

I won’t lie to you.  These cookies require a little bit of extra work but let me assure you.  They are worth the EXTRA work.  Don’t be scared off.  The few extra steps literally only take 2-3 minutes and the result is perfection!

Ingredients for Smore Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Flour
  • Graham Crackers
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Butter
  • Brown Sugar
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Almond Extract
  • Eggs
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Marshmallows

Tips, Tricks, and Prep

The first thing you need to do is get the butter and the eggs out.  These ingredients need to be at room temperature.

I recently discovered that one of my favorite secret ingredients in many recipes is graham crackers.   But, not just graham crackers.  Graham cracker “flour”.  I like to blend graham crackers in my ninja blender and have a few cups on hand at all times.  My Reese Bars are a perfect example of why I keep graham cracker flour on hand.

If you don’t happen to have graham cracker flour on hand at all times take a minute and blend some up now.  I find it easiest to have all my ingredients prepped and ready in advance.

This recipe also forms a thicker type cookie dough so I HIGHLY recommend using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment.  You can, of course, use a hand mixer but a standing mixer will make it much quicker and easier to handle.

I like to make these cookies extra big.  I find with the mix-ins that bigger cookies work better and hold together.  Plus, who doesn’t love a giant cookie full of yummy goodness?
