S'mores cookies

Last weekend, I had plans to go camping in Acadia National Park with the roommates. It was something that I was really looking forward to, but I somehow got terribly sick. It's summer and it was just a cold, but it left me barely able to get out of bed for days. So camping was definitely out.

Besides missing the beautiful hikes and scenery, I also had plans to bake and bring cookies to eat around the campfire - specifically s'mores cookies! I have made a version of s'mores cookies in the past (with peanut butter) as well as a brownies version.

Today's cookies are similar because they use the same usual suspects (chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers), but instead of laying them like in these previous recipes, they are all mixed in together in the dough!

The end result is a delicious chocolate chip cookie with s'more flavors! The graham crackers and marshmallow do get a bit lost in the mix, but they do add flavor and crunch to an otherwise ordinary cookie.

I do wish that I could have shared these with everyone on the camping trip, but hey, there's always next time!
