Ingredients you will need for these Peanut butter S’mores cookies
This Peanut butter s’mores cookie is a combination of a peanut butter cookie and a chocolate chip cookie with a nice addition of mallows! So the ingredients are going to be pretty basic, but here is what you will need:
- Granulated sugar
- Brown sugar
- Peanut butter
- An egg
- Baking Soda
- Cram of tartar
- Mini marshmallows
- Semi-sweet chocolate chips
See! Just like I said, this is just like your regular chocolate chip cookie except that it has added peanut butter… Because well who doesn’t love peanut butter and mini marshmallows!
What peanut butter should I use?
Well, my friend… You can use whatever you have at home!
I love when recipes let you use whatever is available to you so I had to make it this way for this recipe. If you have crunchy peanut butter use that. If you have smooth peanut butter use that. and if you have both use 1/4 cup of smooth and 1/4 cup of crunchy!
This one is going to be up to you 🙂
Tips and Tricks for the Perfect S’mores cookies recipe!
Just like any other cookie recipe, these S’mores cookies are easy to make. But there are some tips I’d like to share with you to make sure that your batch comes out absolutely perfect!
- Tip number 3, do not over-mix your cookie dough! Always mix it just enough to get everything incorporated and that’s all. No one wants a tough cookie even though we all wanna be it 😉 !
- Tip number 2, make sure to use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat! when it comes to cookies you don’t want to spray your baking sheet with non stick cooking spray because that will only add excess grease and turn everything into a greasy puddly mess!
- Tip number 3, do not over-bake your cookies! As I often say, with cookie you always want them a bit under baked! The heat from the cookie itself will continue baking it long after you’ve pulled it out of the oven, Trust me 🙂
What’s all the fuss about these peanut butter cookies anyways?!
These are not your regular peanut butter cookies! These are a mix of a couple of favorites flavors and textures that we think would go amazingly together.
They are absolutely soft and chewy just like the best chocolate chip cookie you’ve ever had while having that delicious peanut buttery flavor… Add the marshmallows to the mix and you are left with a party in your mouth… Literally!
