Mini S’mores Cookies

So… I don’t know if it’s a fluke, but last week I baked FOUR times.  FOUR TIMES!

I’ve made Scones, Cupcakes, Muffins and now Cookies!  Oh, and don’t forget the Fudge!

I’ve gotten into a little routine with Matty in the morning.  We stay in bed until about 8am,  then get up, have breakfast and then he goes down for a nap.  While he’s napping, I get to baking!

Last week, my husband wanted me to make something to take into the office to share with the guys.  So, I searched Pinterest for some ideas and I came across a delicious recipe for S’mores Cookies by Sugar Crafter!

They turned out pretty darn YUMMY!  And the mini’s in them were perfect for these mini cookies!

Mini S'mores Cookies

Yield: 3 dozen cookies
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 8 Tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs + pieces
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 cup Jet Puffed Mallow Bits


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and graham cracker crumbs. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  5. In two parts, slowly mix in the dry ingredients until just combined.
  6. Fold in the marshmallows and chocolate chips.
  7. Form 1 inch balls by hand and place on cookie sheet. Gently press each ball to flatten slightly if you like a flatter cookie.
  8. Bake 10-11 minutes or until the cookies are a golden brown color.
  9. Remove immediately to a wire rack to cool... or eat one warm! Just like it's hot off the camp fire!

Strawberry M&M Rice Krispy Treats

A few days ago, I had an appearance on the morning show on AFN Bavaria radio so I made a batch of Rice Krispy treats to share with everyone in the studio!  I also brought a plate to my husband’s office.

They were gone in 5 minutes.

Seriously, go buy yourself a bag of Strawberry marshmallows, a bag of M&M’s and make these.  Simple, quick, easy and SO GOOD!
