Make Cookies, Feel Better About Life

It's a simple philosophy, really. Actually, bake anything, feel better about life, but snow + icky coldness that makes you wanna scream in someone's face while you're walking outside= cookies (It just does, okay? Don't question the equation). This recipe is for allllll those folk already missing the lakes, and warmth, and most specifically: s'mores. They're a little bit graham cracker/marshmallow and a little bit chocolate chip cookie goodness (the comfort food of the cookie family)

Giant S’mores Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 sticks softened butter
1 Cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla
4 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 Cups chocolate chips
3 regular size Hershey’s Chocolate Bars
3 Full Graham Crackers
5-6 Large Marshmallows cut into fourths

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Place butter and sugars into a stand or electric mixer; beat until light and fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla until well combined.
2.  Place flour, salt and baking soda into a large bowl; mix then slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips.  Mix until just combined.  Scoop a heaping 1/4 Cup of cookie dough into muffin top pan cups.  Press down then gently press chocolate bar squares, graham cracker pieces and marshmallow slices on top of cookie dough.  Bake for 11-13 minutes or until edges are just turning brown.  Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.  Serve with milk and enjoy 
Makes 18 LARGE cookies from the muffin top pan

Now. Go scoot your butt to your kitchen -- you know you felt like baking today anyway -- whip these suckers up, and when all of the sudden you're like, "whoa, life is great", I'll be here for you to thank.
