Campfire Cookies {S’mores Cookies}

The kick off to summer certainly hasn’t been a boring one.

My parents were here last weekend, we had an end of the school year BBQ bash, mr and I went to a dinner party, on a date, had the spring roundup, and went to a wedding.  I saw my parents for a total of 30 minutes the entire weekend but I think they were okay with that since it meant babysitting.

We also had a family reunion.

And since I like to use my family as my guinea pigs I baked up these campfire cookies the morning of.

Good thing they turned out as good as they did or I would have arrived empty handed.  You never want to show up empty handed.

I’m also glad I had some on hand when I accidentally erased ALL my photos from my camera.

 I was able to get them all back thanks to some restoring software I found but there were a few moments there when I was not in a good place.  Cookies were necessary.

Whether you have access to a campfire or not you’ll have no excuse not to enjoy a s’more.

Campfire Cookies {S’mores Cookies}

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: approximately 21 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 box Devil's Food Cake Mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup marshmallow creme
  • 3 graham crackers

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°
  2. In medium bowl mix the cake mix, eggs, and oil with a wooden spoon. It may seem dry at first but keep working it with the spoon until it forms a dough.
  3. On a cutting board cut each graham cracker into 8 squares.
  4. To form the cookies take a heaping tablespoon of dough and divide in half. Flatten one half into a disk, place on baking sheet. Place a piece of graham cracker and a scant teaspoon of marshmallow creme in the middle. Flatten the second half of the dough, place on top of the creme, and pinch the sides of the dough together to enclose the cracker and marshmallow.
  5. Repeat until all the dough is used.
  6. Bake for 8-9 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheet before serving.

Notes

If the dough seems too dry you can add an extra drop or two of oil but add it very gradually and use a lot of elbow grease.

    Hmm.. Do you think you could sub mini marshmallows for the kreme? I never have Kreme on hand but always have mini marshmallows!

    • Krista says:

      Sure Becky, give it a try! Obviously the texture will be different but since the marshmallows are inside the cookie dough they should stay soft. Let me know how they turn out!
