Let’s put an end to this frustration with the help of baking!
Preheat the oven to 350°F, then put parchment paper on 2 cookie sheets. Set aside.
With the help of a parent, use a hand mixer to whisk the butter and both sugars together until they're light and fluffy - about 1-2 minutes.
Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking until well-blended. Stir in the vanilla.
You’re doing great! You’re almost at the fun part!
Gently fold in the sifted flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Mix in the oats, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and caramels by hand (because fun) or you can use a spatula.
It's both messy AND squishy – the best part!
Take a small handful of the dough. Gently roll and flatten each handful and place it on the baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
This is meant to be fun so don’t worry about making them all the same size.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are browned at the edges.
Cool the cookies on a cooling rack.
You did it and hopefully you had fun too! You might still be feeling frustrated, but you did something about it, hopefully relieving a little of the frustration as you went, and now you have cookies to show for it. Good on you!
