And, fortunately for me, working at a summer camp means that I get my fair share of gooey chocolate and graham cracker goodness.
Of course, s'mores are best when they come straight from the campfire, but in a pinch (or, you know, in February) these cookies will suffice!

I made this recipe for my parents' camper themed anniversary party recently, and they were a hit! So good.
3/4 c butter, softened1/2 c sugar1/2 c brown sugar1 egg1 tsp vanilla1 1/2 c flour1 c graham cracker crumbs1/2 tsp salt1/2 tsp baking soda1 c chocolate chips2 c mini-marshmallows
Preheat the oven to 375.
Start by crushing up the graham crackers. I broke them up with my hands and then stuck them in my Kitchen Aid on "stir" to get them down to crumbs-- they don't have to be very finely crushed.
Add the flour and baking soda to the crumbs and stir well.
Set aside. This is where it comes in handy to have an extra mixing bowl that fits the Kitchenmaid...
Beat the butter and sugars, and then add the eggs and vanilla.
Slowly reincorporate the crumb mixture and mix well.
Your dough should be pretty thick- not runny at all.
Take about a tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball, then smoosh it slightly and put it on the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for just about eight minutes.
This is where things get a little tricky.
(I like these cooling racks.)
Meanwhile, with the other half of the cookies, bake them for a little less than eight minutes, and then immediately after removing them from the oven, put the mini marshmallows and chocolate on top.
It's okay if they get pushed down into the dough a little.
Take the cookies that have been cooling and place them directly on top of the marshmallows and chocolate.
And then return the cookies to the oven for another 2-3 minutes to allow the marshmallows and chocolate to get soft.
They'll look a little like this...
If you're traveling anywhere with them, you'll want to let the cookies cool so they don't separate and make a giant mess... but if you're just enjoying them yourself, dig in!
Keep summer rolling, my friends!
