Believe it or not, I'm not a huge cookie person. Yes I do like them, but if you gave me the choice of a candy bar or cake over a cookie, I would choose whatever was up against the cookie...unless the option was something I hate - then it would be a cookie all the way. Specialty cookies are usually interesting, so when I saw this recipe I had to make them. I was searching around on My Baking Addiction for some recipes I haven't made yet when I saw this one.....Giant S'mores Cookies . I immediately printed it out. Who doesn't like S'mores?! It always brings me back to my childhood and summers - I still get excited for when summer rolls around and the idea of roasting marshmallows over a fire on the beach. And I have to say - making these was so much fun!
This is an excellent kid friendly cookie to have them help you with. They will have so much fun smooshing the marshmallows, chocolate bars and graham crackers into the cookies. Let me suggest a short cut for you guys - the recipe calls for large marshmallows and for you to cut them up. I suggest just buying mini marshmallows - such a time saver. I decided not to make them jumbo, just the size of my cookie scoop....excellent decision - so many cookies! :)
Now, the perfectionist in me was trying to make them all perfect and pretty before they went into the oven
And then once I took them out of the oven, I saw that the more stuff there was on it and the better it was all smooshed together, the better they came out.

Once cooled, I couldn't wait to eat one! Let me tell you - AMAZING! They taste like a S'more! And my sisters and I can't stop eating them! This is one that I will make again and again. Run to the store - go get your supplies and bake these!! You will not be dissapointed. I acutally ended up making them again over the weekend because we went through them so quickly!
