Cake Batter S'more Cookies

Recently, while cleaning out my pantry, I realized that I had way too many cake mixes. There must have been a sale on at some point, because I had six boxes of various flavours! I have been messing around with cake decorating for a few years now, but there are only so many events that can justify the time (and calories) that go into a full blown fancy cake!

I have seen a number of different recipes that utilize cake batter as the beginning of a great dessert. I made Mini Egg Blondies using cake batter for Easter this year, and they were a major hit. So, I thought I would tweak the basic "Cake Batter Cookie" recipe and come up with something tasty for summer!

This recipe was super easy, it took about five minutes to mix and ten minutes to bake. The results were amazing... chewy, gooey goodness! A fabulous treat for a cookout or camping trip!

Cake Batter S'more Cookies

1 chocolate cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup (or less) of oil
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup crumbled (not crushed) graham crackers

Combine cake mix, eggs and oil until somewhat smooth, fold in chocolate chips, marshmallows and graham crackers. Drop by the spoonful onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350ÂșC for 10 - 12 minutes, cookies will still be quite soft. Allow the cookies to cool for a few minutes before removing from the cookie sheet to cool completely on a cooling rack. That's it! So easy!

  1. Yum! I got a little over zealous with the 'mix-ins' and ended up just putting it in a pan as some variation of brownies, smores bars, etc. and YUM! :) thanks!
