These S’more cookies are a perfect treat to bake with your kids. Made with one bowl, they are easy and quick to make. The marshmallows get caramelized in the oven, bringing the flavor of summer cookouts right into your kitchen. You can easily double this recipe and freeze some for later use. As messy as it gets when you bake with kids, it is such a pleasure to see them glow with pride when they savor their creations. It makes the sugar and flour on the floor definitely more charming.
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 2 sticks unsalted butter (1 cup)
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups all purpose white flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 and prepare a cookie sheet covered with parchment.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
In a large bowl, mix both the white and brown sugar into the softened butter for approx. 3 minutes with a spatula until the mixture is creamy and light, and fully incorporated. Add the egg and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and gently combine. Add the flour mixture in 2-3 parts and mix until just incorporated. Add the mini chocolate chips and marshmallows.
Using a small cookie dough scoop measuring about 1 teaspoon, place cookies onto the prepared cookie sheet. You can flatten these a little bit with the back of a spoon if you wish. Try to make sure marshmallows are not directly on the bottom of the pan to avoid burning them.
Bake for 9 minutes. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes before placing on a rack to cool.
