SRC – S’mores Cookies from Amy’s Cooking Adventures

Well Dined | S'mores Cookies

It's time for another Secret Recipe Club reveal! This month I was assigned Amy's Cooking adventures, a blog that I recognize from my other blog circle - Food 'n Flix.  As I was looking into Amy's blog in more depth and reading her bio, I started to feel like I knew her.  I, too, came to cooking later in life.  I, too, have a masters but chose to stay at home (as a homemaker for now and hopefully a mother soon).  I, too, am an avid reader (and a huge geek/nerd in general).  I love that Amy posts a list of what she has been reading, and I love the books on those lists, too!  Her writing is very open and conversational and makes you feel like you are an old friend - what a treat!

I was really tempted to go with these Pesto Mozzarella Burgers on Tomato Basil Buns, maybe paired with a Roasted Blueberry Basil Margarita.  But then I saw that she had a ton of s'mores based recipes!  I love s'mores so much!  Would I go with s'mores brownies, cupcakes, or a frappuccino?  So many choices!  I eventually settled on cookies, but Amy has not 1, not 2, but 3 s'mores cookie recipes.  I decided to go with the 3rd and most recent recipe, because Amy said it's the best one and I trust her judgement.

They are a chocolate base with chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and graham cracker bits - and they really taste like s'mores!  You can store them in an airtight container, but I liked them best the first day, when the graham crackers were still crunchy.

They also have a secret ingredient - chocolate pudding mix!  I've used pudding mix in cakes and ice cream before, but hadn't thought about it for cookies - what a great idea!  They came out really fudgy and moist.  I really didn't make any changes at all to this recipe, it's perfect!

Fudgy S’mores Cookies
adapted from Amy's Cooking Adventures
Makes about 36 cookies

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 (3.4 oz) pkg chocolate instant pudding (I somehow read this as white chocolate and used that, still delicious!)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp special dark cocoa powder
2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
2/3 cup mini marshmallows
2/3 cup crushed graham crackers

Preheat the oven to 350 deg F and line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Place the butter and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat until smooth and creamy.  Add the pudding mix and mix until combined.

Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix each one thoroughly; stir in the vanilla.

Turn the mixer to low and slowly add the baking soda, salt, cocoa powder, and flour.

Use a large spoon (or the mixer on low) to stir in the chocolate morsels, marshmallows, and graham crackers.

Use a 2 tbsp scoop to drop the cookies onto the prepared sheets.

Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are set.  Cool on wire racks and store in a tightly sealed container.

  1. These look soooo good! Rich and decadent!! Great pick for the SRC! 😀

  2. Hi Kelly, I am lucky enough to be guest blogging on today’s SRC. Amy’s blog is wonderful. It was Amy that first introduced me to SRC and then I returned the favor by introducing her to Food n Flix. Both of which led us to you….Life is good.

  3. I was so excited to read about your choice for this month’s SRC… fall always makes me think of s’mores more than summer. The chill in the evening air seems perfect for bonfires, and when you can’t have a bonfire, baking yummy cookies like these. 😉

  4. It so fun to make connections throughout our fun clubs! It’s a pleasure to meet someone who enjoys books & s’mores as much as I do!

  5. OK, I’m drooling over these cookies! I love s’mores too which might prove to be dangerous if I made these cookies. lol Great choice for SRC!

  6. These look incredible! As the summer fades, I’m definitely going to hit these up in the cooler weather!
