Birthday Cake S’mores Cookies

I don’t shop very often these days due to financial constraints the past two months, but the most recent excursions I have had resulted in the purchase of primarily navy blue and coral colored items. I cannot explain this gravitation as I am not doing do on purpose. Yet I have actually experienced this many times before where I find myself standing in the checkout line with a handful of similarly colored items. I suppose my brain just gets stuck on one color when looking around it only allows me to see that color.

And then when it comes to food, I am all over the place most of the time. Take cake batter for example. I’ve combined cake batter with all kinds of things, including peanut butter, but today is the first time I’ve paired it up with s’mores and I think they compliment each other quite well. These cookies have a cake batter cookie dough base with chocolate, miniature marshmallow bits, and grahams cracker pieces mixed in. And more sprinkles. Because why have just cake batter or just s’mores when you can have both!?
