Smores Cookies

There must be something in the water.  SO many of my friends and family are pregnant.  I've come to find that pregnant people are just like normal people, except they deserve a little extra TLC because pretty soon, they are going to have a little baby on their hands and they will.  Never.  Sleep.  Again.  For this reason, I wanted to pamper all of my expectant moms out there with a little gift box of fun that included these Smores Cookies.  These are a take on my Chocolate Orange Quickies because they also use a box of cake mix as the base.  You may think that this is cheating, but if so you are probably a killjoy because these cookies are just as delicious as they are easy to make.  I have been making a few recipes lately that are a rift on smores.  The reason is that smores ingredients are a great thing to keep around the house for a last minute dessert because they never go bad.  You are always prepared for a fun dessert and you can always be prepared to make these cookies.  They are really yum.
Smores Cookies (makes 2 dozen cookies)
1 box cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 heaping cup marshmallows
8 graham crackers
1.  I only had jumbo marshmallows so I had to slice mine in quarters, but if you have small or mini mallows, you are one step ahead already.
2.  Mix the cake mix box with the oil and egg.  Add large pices on graham cracker and the mallows.
3.  Stir gently, but firmly (contradiction much??) until they are well mixed.
4.  Place on a well greased or lined sheet pan.  Give them some room because they will spread.
5.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes until set.
I know...they don't look like much now.

6.  Let them cool on the pan for 5 minutes after you remove them from the oven.  Then, since the mallows are sticky, spray your spatula with non-stick spray to remove them from the sheet tray.  I know this seems like a pointless stem, but if you skip it, they will look like this:
And you will use a lot of profanity, as I did, trying to get them off.  In this case, patience is a virtue.

Let them cool on a rack and then enjoy!
