These cookies take a camping classic to the next delicious level. They’re gooey…they’re chocolatey…and the best part is that there’s no campfire required.
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Servings: 14 cookies
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs (approximately 15 sheets graham crackers)
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar, plus additional for topping cookies
- 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg, lightly beaten, at room temperature
- 1 tablespoon unsulphured molasses
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 7 large marshmallows
- 14 chocolate kisses
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Place graham cracker crumbs into a food processor and process to a flour consistency, if desired. In a large bowl combine cracker cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, dark brown sugar, baking soda and salt. In a medium bowl, combine egg, molasses and vanilla extract then add to graham cracker mixture. Add melted butter and mix well. Dough will be crumbly.
Drop 2 tablespoons of dough for each cookie onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches apart. Place a small amount of sugar in a bowl. Lightly spray the bottom of a measuring cup or flat-bottomed drinking glass with cooking spray then place in sugar. Flatten dough with measuring cup/drinking glass to about 1/4-inch thickness. Place bottom of measuring cup/drinking glass back in sugar and repeat for each cookie. Place in oven and bake 8-10 minutes.
Slice each marshmallow in half. Remove cookies from oven and turn on broiler. Place a marshmallow half on each cookie, sticky side down. Return cookies to oven under broiler until marshmallows are toasted, about 90 seconds. Be careful to ensure the marshmallows don’t burn.
Remove cookies from oven and push a chocolate kiss down into each marshamallow. Allow the cookies to cool slightly then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
ORANGE & FIELD TIP: Spray your measuring spoon or cup with a generous amount of cooking spray prior to pouring molasses into it. Doing so with help the molasses to come off very easily.
