S'More Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love s'mores and try to make them a few times each summer. My husband and I built a fire pit in our yard years ago and it is nice to sit out there and relax after a long work week. My youngest shares my love for them to. When I saw a recipe for s'more chocolate chip cookies, I knew they would be perfect for him.

I followed the directions of this recipe at Baked Perfection closely, but again added some changes to a half batch of my favorite chocolate chip cookies. I couldn't stop eating this cookie dough before I even put any chocolate in it. The graham cracker taste comes through very well in these. These are a chewy cookie, which is what I prefer in a cookie.

S'more Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of cornstarch (optional-this ingredient seems to be all the rage on Pinterest for chocolate chip cookies. I will add 1 tablespoon next time)
1/2 cup plus 1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs (Sorry, I was too lazy to do the math-about 7 ounces altogether)
1/2 to 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1 to 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
2 -3 regular size Hershey milk chocolate bars

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter and cool slightly. Add the sugars, eggs and vanilla.Stir in the flour, salt ,baking soda, and cornstarch. The add the graham cracker crumbs and mini chips. Roll into balls the size of golf balls. Place on parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake for 8 minutes. Pull the cookies out and lightly press 3-5 mini marshmallows and 1 square of the Hershey's milk chocolate bar onto each cookie. Bake another 3-4 minutes, depending on how dark you like your cookies. Allow to cool on the pan at least 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
