Here’s How to Make S’more Christmas Cookies

Whenever it’s cold out, I crave things like chocolate and marshmallows, whether it’s in cocoa or s’more form.  Problem is, not everyone has the option of making s’mores in the winter and “roasting” marshmallows over the stove just doesn’t cut it (not that I have to in Arizona, we roast marshmallows all year long!) Luckily, these S’more Cookies are a delightful way to get your fix.

The graham crackers are baked right into the cookie, and how cute are those little Hershey’s bars and marshmallow pieces sticking out? I swear I could die.  I think these will make a great addition to my cookie boxes this year.
