Smore Cookies

If there was a cookie I could eat before I die, I think these would be it! 
(I can't say for certain because I haven't tried all the cookies in the world, but I am working on it!)

Smore cookies are AMAZING!! They were soft and moist, and it is a traditional summertime treat mix with the traditional chocolate chip cookie.
I ate about 10 maybe.....15 cookies, but honestly who is counting! I loved them, and I would be eating them still if there were any left. 

This cookie has all of the ingredients of Smores in it, the graham cracker, marshmallow, and of course the chocolate bar. 

When you make these cookies, and you will, you will be addicted just like me!!

Smore Cookies

1 package graham crackers (9 full sized graham crackers)
6 T butter, melted
1 T sugar
dash salt
1 C butter, softened
2 C brown sugar
2 eggs
2 T milk
2 t vanilla
1 t baking soda
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
3 1/2 C flour
2 1/2 C milk chocolate chips
24 large marshmallows
4 small 1.55 oz Hershey bars 

Break the graham cracker crumbs up into pieces. Place them in a small food processor and grind them into crumbs. Or you can crush your crackers into crumbs by placing them in a gallon sized zip loc bag, sealing the bag securely and then smashing the crumbs with a rolling pin.
To your crumbs add 6 Tbsp. melted butter, 1 Tbsp. sugar and a dash of salt. Let the food processor grind all of the ingredients together nicely. Set the crumbly mixture aside. 
Place your softened butter and brown sugar into a large mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed until the ingredients are nicely creamed together, about 2 minutes.
In a separate bowl combine your baking soda, baking powder, salt and flour. Add it to your creamed mixture and mix until combined. 
Add your eggs, milk and vanilla and mix for another 2 minutes. Toss in your chocolate chips and mix yet again, just until the chips are evenly distributed.
Grab your graham cracker crumbs and pour them into the cookie dough. Using a wooden spoon or your hands smash them into the cookie dough. You don't want the graham cracker crumb mixture to be totally lost in the dough.
Roll the dough into 1 1/2 inc to 2 inch balls, place them on a lightly sprayed cookie sheet or one that is lined with a silpat and bake at 350 for about 6 minutes (I cooked mine for 8), or just until the cookies begin to crack. 
While your cookies are in the oven, cut the large marshmallows in half. 
Press a marshmallow piece into the center of each hot cookie. Return the sheet to the oven and bake for about 1 1/2 (I did this for about 3 minutes) minutes allowing the marshmallows to puff  up.
Remove the sheet from the oven. Let the cookies sit for about 2 minutes, then press one Hershey bar piece into the center of the marshmallow.
Remove the cookies from the sheet and allow them to finish cooling on a wire rack.
