S’mores Cookies + Weekly Menu

Smores Cookies 1

Remember how I credited my FitBit for my healthier pregnancy?

S’more are like the opposite of all of that. Yes, I knew was pregnant (before a pregnancy test could even confirm) when I wanted Subway…but in these past few weeks, the baby wants s’mores. Daily.

In short, my 10,000+ steps a day are simply negating the damage of my s’mores…but ya know, it’s working. I told Mr. Prevention that as soon as my weight starts to leap up, I’ll give up my nightly s’more. But until then, s’more on!

I told my mommy friend one night at dinner how I am several weeks into a serious s’more craving and the next morning, she was sending me this recipe she’d run across online.

Next, I got an update. “OMG, the batter is so good!”

And then another update, “I’ve made these cookies twice now…you have to make them!”

Smores Cookies 3

Last weekend, when we had company for dinner, I knew exactly what to make for dessert. The only issue was one we all faced – not eating them ALL.

In fairness, they are small. But…there is absolutely nothing healthy to boast about when it comes to these cookies. They’re just straight up summer s’more cookie deliciousness that you should strongly consider making. To share.

TO SHARE, remember. Even if you could very well eat all 3 1/2 dozen just as I could’ve (but didn’t. somehow.)

    These sound soo good! But shouldn’t they have marshmallows? I’m excited to give them a try as soon as I find people to share them with.

    I have to make cookies for a function. I am not a big cookie maker/baker however, and I was looking for a simple and delicious recipe. I think this is it. Whohoo and thank you.

    PS Although I am not a huge baker I do enjoy eating good cookies.

    I added the dehydrated mini marshmellows! And they were a hit. Thanks for this recipe…a new summer favorite, or even this winter when we are dreaming of summer
