... Chocolate Cake S'mores Cookies

There's something about s'mores that everyone loves.  Everyone.  I mean, really, have you ever met someone who doesn't like s'mores?  If you have, you're probably not friends with them anymore because, let's be honest, there's something not right about that.  

Oh boy, I got a little carried away there.  Sorry about that.  But, come on, look at those cookies and tell me you don't love s'mores.  Based on this recipe, I know Jenny over at Picky Palate does.

Chocolate Cake S'mores Cookies
makes about 3 dozen cookies

1 box Devil's Food cake mix
2 eggs
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
3 Hershey's chocolate bars, cut into rectangles
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1 1/2 cups graham crackers, cut up into small pieces

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix the cake mix, eggs, brown sugar, and butter until combined.  With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a silpat or parchment-lined baking sheet.  Press cookies into little discs to flatten slightly.  On each cookie press a chocolate bar, a couple marshmallows, and a couple graham cracker pieces.

Bake for 11-13 minutes or until cooked through.

Remove and let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Taylor's Notes:
These couldn't be easier to make or more fun to share.  I crumbled a few graham crackers and sprinkled them over the cookies before baking them to add just a little more crunch.  I think it might be fun to torch the marshmallows a little bit after the cookies come out of the oven, but I'm that girl who loves to char her marshmallows over the fire.  ;)
