Copycat “Insomnia S’more Cookies

oatmeal cookies-25

It all began three years ago. The first time I ever laid hands on a cookie from Insomnia Cookies (in Manhattan), I was instantly hooked. Their deluxe cookies blew my mind. They had so much flavor and texture. More than I had ever experienced in a cookie before.

When I moved back to Colorado, I was left dreaming of those magical cookies. It would be another two years until I would have them again when they opened a store in Boulder. Ever since then I’ve been imagining how I could replicate their S’mores Cookie. It has the fudgy texture of a brownie. It has an added crunch and gooeyness from graham cracker pieces and marshmallows.

The only way I could find to achieve the fudginess of that cookie was to use a brownie mix and pudding mix. The pudding mix contains corn starch which adds a unique softness to the cookies. To amp up the marshmallow flavor, I added a marshmallow flavor oil. It really brings home that campfire s’more flavor. I hope this recipe brings you the same feelings that I had when trying my first cookie from Insomnia!
