When I attended BlogHer’12 last month I was really excited to visit the Camp Bondfire Suite by Hershey’s and Walmart. I made s’mores over a mini open flamed fire in a charming room at the Hilton hotel in NYC that was decorated by Walmart to look like a campground. This was truly one of the highlights from my trip to BlogHer’12. The surroundings were cozy and comfortable, the s’mores were delicious and sinful made with Hershey’s milk chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows.
With summer over, this S’more-tacular experience got me to thinking about how I could enjoy delicious s’mores at home with my family, minus the campground. This is when I came up with the idea to combine my favourite Hershey’s Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe with s’mores, that way we could bake them right in our own kitchen.
So, today I headed to the kitchen with my boys and first we prepared the batter for the chocolate chip cookies, recipe is below. We layered a graham cracker quarter with 3 Hershey’s chocolate squares, 2 marshmallow halves and topped with another graham cracker. We then topped the s’more with a big scoop of cookie dough, turned it over and topped it with another scoop. The boys took turns forming the dough all around the s’mores then placed them on a baking sheet that was layered with parchment paper. We baked the cookies for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees F. That’s it. The Hershey’s Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is below and you can check out the photos of the delicious and sinful Hershey’s S’more Filled Chocolate Cookie created by our family, what a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
