  • 6 oz unsalted butter (1-½ sticks)
  • 4 oz Graham cracker crumbs (about 1 cup)
  • 4 oz granulated sugar (about ½ cup)

  • 2 Hershey's chocolate bars (1.55 oz each)
  • 1 large egg

Prep (10 minutes)

  • Soften the 1-½ sticks of butter, in the microwave, or by leaving it out for an hour
  • Break the 2 Hershey's bars into small pieces
  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Line the two baking sheets with parchment paper

Make the dough (20 minutes)

  • In the medium bowl, mix together the 8 oz flour, 4 oz Graham cracker crumbs, ½ tsp baking soda, and ½ tsp salt
  • In the large bowl, mix together on medium speed, until creamy: the 1-½ sticks of softened butter, the 4 oz granulated sugar, and the 4 oz brown sugar
  • Add the 1 tsp vanilla extract and the egg
  • Mix for another 30 seconds
  • Scrape the sides of the bowl
  • Using the lowest speed on the mixer, stir in the flour mixture from the medium bowl until well-mixed
  • Mix in the 12 oz chocolate chips
  • With the scooping spoon, take rounded scoops of dough and place them about 2-½" apart on the prepared baking sheets

Bake (15 minutes per baking sheet)

  • Bake one sheet at a time for 8 minutes, or until the cookies appear almost set
  • Remove from the oven and quickly press a couple of marshmallows and a few small pieces of milk chocolate into the cookies
  • Return the baking sheet to the oven and bake for 3 more minutes, or until the marshmallows have puffed up and the cookies appear set

Rest (20 minutes)

  • Let cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely for about 15 minutes
