Did you know that August 10th is National S’mores Day? It’s true. It is.

Did you also know that August 10th is my birthday. Coincidence? I think not.

Isn’t it crazy these days how every single day is National “Something” Day. Did you know July 3rd is National Compliment Your Mirror Day. No really. Really. Google it.

Also, might I just say that August is National Eat Dessert First month. Which I have to say is CRAZY, because the subtitle of my book is Always Eat Dessert First. It’s like the universe KNOWS ME!

So since I was born on National S’mores Day and also born in National Eat Dessert First month I feel like my life finally makes sense. Thank you to the folks who invent these holidays. I like it.

Except for the person who invented March 3rd’s holiday. Creepy man.

But back to these cookies. These are a spin on my Dirty Chocolate Chip Cookies that I love so much. When I made them I got a message from a reader that I should switch the recipe a little and make a s’mores version. Well, you guys are smart indeed.

The cookie dough itself is very simple. I used the Jet Puffed Mallow Bits in these. I am mildly obsessed with the little dehydrated mallows. I find them at Target and Walmart pretty easily.

Let the dough chill for at least an hour so. It’s easier to handle when it’s chilled.

Meanwhile pulverize some graham crackers, you’ll need about a cup of fine crumbs…

Then scoop out 2 tablespoons of dough of roll it into a ball.

Coat the cookie dough ball in graham cracker crumbs and place on a baking sheet 2 inches apart.

      Mini marshmallows don’t bake the same as the Mallow bits, they melt into the cookie. So I would recommend if you can’t find them to leave them out entirely. What you could do is the last 2-3 minutes of baking press mini marshmallows on the top of the cookie continue baking. Or you can cut some mini marshmallows in half and press them gently on top after the cookie is done and lightly toast them with a torch or under the broiler for a few seconds.

        I had only a few of the Jet Puffed Mallow bits. I cut some mini-marshmallows in half and mixed them into the batter, along with some chopped up Hershey Bars, and large semi-sweet chocolate chips. I also added some crumbled up graham crackers to the batter. When the cookies came out of the oven, while still hot, I pressed a small square of Hershey Bar into the top of the cookies and let them melt in. They were fabulous and beautiful! Took them to work, and they immediately got scarfed up. Love this recipe. I also made the dirty CCC recipe last week. Also wonderful, but I liked these even better.

    There is definitely no coincidence that it is your birthday on National Smores Day! It was meant to be! Have a wonderfully happy birthday and I’m sure it will include some cake and maybe cookies too. I tried the bread on the weekend and my household loves bread to start with. It was superb! Maybe you can celebrate with some of that too! Have a great day!

    Happy Birthday! And, no, I would have to say, no coincidence! My youngest is all about s’mores right now, so she’s thinking these sound good!

    Happy belated birthday! Hope it was a good one. I believe my boys will love these cookies…and the tamale pie will be our dinner one night!

    When I make s’more cookies I normally put some pulverize graham crackers in with the flour. Do you think if I did that with this recipe that the graham cracker taste would be overwhelming?

      Cold butter is easier to cube and easier to cream with sugars. Honestly I have used room temp too and it works fine but cubing is easier if cold. Also I sometimes don’t have time to wait for butter to get to room temp so I end up using cold despite recipe instructions.
