Do you recall

The Camp Fire Song, Smores, and having a ball

Try one of these cookies and remenisce,

The mashmallow goo, chocolate, and graham flavor is bliss!

Keep the whole family in mind

When these ingredients are combined!


These cookies are reminiscent of childhood camping trips eating Smores around the Girl Scout campfire.  The cookies have crushed graham crackers in them, milk chocolate chips, and ½ of a large marshmallow, which bakes on top.  The results delight children and adults alike and are especially fun to make with your children.  Everyone calls these cookies yummy!
