Does anyone else think of "The Sandlot" when anyone references S'mores?! I do, and it reminds me also of summertime and camp fires which I LOVE. Theres nothing like the smell of a campfire. Brings me back to the days when I was little camping with my dad and brother roasting marshmallows and fishing and all that good summer fun! So this cookie is sort of an homage to the upcoming warm grill-out worthy weather (and to the fact that I'm hours away from departing for a Spring Break trip in Panama City Beach with 7 other super cool people in a super nice condo on the beach! YAY!)
I found this recipe on bakedperfection.com and didn't think anything needed changed (except I used dark chocolate as I almost always do, and used reduced-fat graham crackers because if theres anyway to tweak a recipe to make it a tad bit healthier without significantly sacrificing the taste and/or texture, I'm going for it). Also, you may notice that mine are a little undercooked and gooey in the middle, its just thats how I like them, therefore I put them in about a minute less than this recipe... anyways here they are!

Alright folks, I'm off to enjoy 5 days on the beach and I'm taking these cookies with me!
