S’mores Kiss Cookies

Everyone around here is in full Christmas spirit. We have been using our Chocolate Advent calendar to countdown, we have a chain countdown, presents are about half wrapped, Friendsmas 2016 is in the books and this past weekend I went to my sister in laws annual Christmas Cookie exchange.

Typically around this time I make all sorts of treats, so making something for a cookie exchange is no biggie. But this year I really wanted to make something different from the normal toffee, fudge, peanut butter balls that I make each year.

I headed to Pinterest and searched for Christmas Cookies. Of course there are a million different kinds that sounded amazing. But I picked two and stuck with them. The ones I am sharing today are S’mores Kiss Cookies.

Sounds easy enough, right? It certainly was. These cookies were not only super easy to make but amazingly soft (even a couple of days later)!

The kids loved helping with these because not only did they get the job of unwrapping chocolate kisses, they were able to sneak a couple!

I love s’mores. But roasting marshmallows over a fire isn’t something I get to do often. So I have no problem settling for something as delicious as these S’mores Kiss cookies!

S’mores Kiss Cookies – Recipes from Six Sister’s Stuff

  • 1 c graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 1/4 c all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 c light brown sugar
  • 1/3 c granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 20 large marshmallows, cut in half
  • About 40 chocolate kisses (I ended up using 36)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Using a large bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth.
  4. Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
  5. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  6. Put tablespoons of dough onto a baking sheet, 1″ apart. (I use a small cookie scoop which is basically just a small ice cream scoop)
  7. Bake for 6 minutes and edges are just getting golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and press half of a marshmallow, sticky side down, into each cookie.  Let cool completely.
  9. Let all cookies cool completely then preheat broiler.
  10. Put all of the cookies back on baking sheets and broil for 1 minute. Don’t let them burn!
  11. Remove from the broiler and place a chocolate kiss on top of each cookie.

    Amazing! I made these with my 4 year old tonight because she could help more, like cutting the marshmallows and unwrapping the kisses. They are so good!
