Valentine's Day S'mores

I have been craving s'mores lately and Valentine's Day just happened to stumble upon my craving. This recipe is a simple chocolate chip cookie recipe (shaped in to hearts, of course) with the addition of a graham cracker crust, marshmallows & pink and red m&m's.
...I had to make the extra-giant heart-shaped cookie just for fun:-)
And I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to combine my craving with a gift for my new office. Who doesn't love the new girl with sweet treats?
So I packed these bright and yummy cookies in to individual packaging with a sweet note and brought them to work for that 2pm snack everyone looks forward to in the office.

1/2 cup of butter
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of graham cracker crust, crumbled
1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup of m&m's
1/4 cup of marshmallows
1 egg
1/4 cup of milk
1 1/4 cups of flour
3/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt


1 Beat the butter until creamy, 2 minutes. Add the sugars, beat for 2 more minutes. Mix in the graham cracker and egg. Mix together the dry ingredients – flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the sugar butter mixture. Add the chocolate chips, m&m's & marshmallows.

2 Wrap dough in plastic and refrigerate at least 3 hours.

3 Preheat oven to 375°F. Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Place about 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten in crisscross pattern with a fork. Bake until light brown, 9 to 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for a minute; transfer to rack to cool completely.

For chewier cookies, bake at 300°F for 15 minutes.
