There was a smattering of cookie issues this week with melting or exploding marshmallows. Let me give just a bit more context here – imagine the flavors of a campfire s’more, except without the smokiness and in a cookie form.
The cookies have some graham cracker crumbs in the batter (although I think the flavor is a bit lost in there), along with chocolate chips and marshmallows (store-bought minis in my case). Have you ever put a marshmallow into a hot oven? Give it a few minutes, and it will start to bubble and melt. It makes kind of a mess. That’s what happens when this batter gets baked.
But I didn’t care about melty marshmallow bits. They’re delicious, and they snapped right off of the edge of the cookies once they had cooled (cook’s treat). I loved these cookies. Oh, and I added a sprinkling of fleur de sel to the top before baking them off – the cookies are even better with that hit of salt. The only thing I wish I would have tried before we ate all of the cookies was using my handheld smoker on a few of them.
For the recipe and to see how the other Baked Sunday Mornings bakers fared, head over to Baked Sunday Mornings.

Nice toch with the sprinkling of fleur de sel! Will have to give that a try!
I put salt on mine too – great minds! Love your pics – cookies look great. These are my favorite of all the Baked cookies. I’m a s’more junkie! :)
Oh yeah, a little salt on top would have been a great finishing touch!
