S’mores Cookies Recipe

Patrick and I love having beach bonfires.  We have a huge fire pit that Patrick’s brother welded a stand for, so we simply plop it anywhere on the beach and get the fire blazing.

Friends will be surfing, paddle boarding, chasing kids, making sand castles, etc., but when the s’mores fixin’s come out, everyone gathers around because there’s something magical about toasted, gooey marshmallows and melted chocolate sandwiched between graham crackers that always leaves you wanting s’more…

But now you can bring America’s favorite campfire treat to your very own kitchen table with these S’mores Cookies! Patrick loves these S’mores Cookies so much that I made his favorite cookie for my favorite Valentine last week.

He liked it 🙂

And so will you!  Soft, chewy, graham cracker cookies nestled with gooey chocolate and slightly toasted marshmallows…

Yeah, you might want to double or triple the recipe, even fill a jar in the kitchen, keep a stash in your purse, or your car, or into your closet because you never know when you will want s’more S’more Cookies, which I can pretty much guarantee will be all the time!

S’mores Cookies Ingredients

These chocolate chip marshmallow cookies are similar to your classic chocolate chip cookie recipe, but with a few extra special additions.

  • Butter:  Make sure your butter is softened to room temperature so it can easily be creamed together with the egg and sugars.
  • Granulated sugar: Sweetens these cookies.
  • Brown sugar: Makes for a slightly chewier cookie.
  • Egg: Helps bind everything together.
  • Vanilla extract: Use pure vanilla extract for the best flavor.
  • All-purpose flour: I have not experimented with other types of flour but I suspect gluten free baking flour or white whole wheat flour would also work.
  • Graham cracker crumbs: You can buy graham cracker crumbs at the grocery store, or you can make them yourself by pulsing whole graham crackers in a food processor.
  • Salt: Balances out the sweetness from the sugar, chocolate, and marshmallows.
  • Baking soda: Helps the cookies rise.
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips: I’m sure you could use different chocolate chip flavors, if desired.
  • Hershey’s chocolate bars: Yes, I added chopped up Hershey’s bars too. What’s a s’mores without Hershey’s?
  • Mini marshmallows: Don’t use regular marshmallows, as they’re far too large to fit in these cookies.

Can I Use a Graham Cracker Substitute?

If you can’t find American graham crackers where you live, try crushing up another mildly sweet, neutral flavored biscuit (like digestive biscuits or something similar).

How to Make S’mores Cookies

This s’mores dessert is easy to whip up at a moment’s notice since the cookie dough doesn’t need to be chilled.

  1. Cream together the butter and sugars, then mix in the egg and vanilla.
  2. Add in the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda and salt. Mix until smooth.
  3. Gently fold in the chocolate chips and chocolate chunks until well combined.
  4. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto cookie sheet.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes.
  6. Remove and quickly press marshmallows into cookies.
  7. Return to oven and cook until done, about 3-4 minutes.

Tips for Making S’mores Cookies

  • If you can’t find Hershey’s chocolate where you live, use extra chocolate chips in the cookie dough.
  • Add the marshmallows to the cookies in the last few minutes of baking so they brown but don’t turn into puddles.
  • If you only have regular-sized marshmallows at home, cut them up into bite-sized pieces before pressing them into the cookies.

S’mores Cookies Variations to Try

If you add different mix-ins to these chocolate chip marshmallow cookies, you won’t wind up with authentic tasting s’mores cookies. But who cares?!

  • Add nuts: You’re welcome to add chopped nuts to the cookie dough.
  • Use flavored marshmallows: Marshmallows come in all sorts of flavors these days. Play around with them to see which you like best!
  • Use different baking chips: I stuck to the classic s’mores flavors and used semi-sweet chocolate chips. But you could also use milk or dark chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and so on.

How to Store S’mores Cookies

These chocolate chip marshmallow cookies can be stored in an airtight container for 5-7 days. Note that the marshmallows on top will harden over time.

  • Form cookie dough balls as instructed.
  • Fit as many dough balls as you can on a parchment/nonstick lined baking sheet without touching.
  • Place the baking sheet in the freezer and freeze the balls until outsides are hard (about 1-2 hours).
  • Transfer to a freezer bag and freeze.
  • To bake:  Place frozen cookie dough balls on a lined baking sheet and bake according to instructions, adding a couple extra minutes to cook time.

How to Freeze Baked S’mores Cookies

  • Fit as many COOLED s’mores cookies on a parchment/nonstick mat lined baking sheet without touching.
  • Place the baking sheet(s) in the freezer and freeze until solid (about 1 hour).
  • Transfer to a freezer size plastic bag and freeze.
  • To eat: When you want to enjoy a s’mores cookie, take it out and let it sit at room temperature, warm in the microwave at 10 second intervals, or warm it in the oven for a few minutes.

  3. Jenna @ A Savory Feast says

    This is such a brilliant idea for a cookie! I love S’mores, so why only have them one way? Those marshmallows look so good.

    • Jen says

      So true! I try and have them any way I can get them!

    • Jen says

      It is only the right thing to do!

      • Karen says

        Have you tried frezimg these?
        Also, how big of a batch does this recipe make?
        Thank you for the information

        • Jen says

          Hi Karen! This makes 3 dozen 2″ cookies (small cookies). I haven’t tried freezing them – actually have never frozen any cookie so I am completely useless at helping you – sorry!

  4. Misty Lunceford says

    These look so yummy! Great pictures!

    • Jen says

      Thanks so much Misty! I hope you enjoy!

    • Jen says

      You are hilarious Sophia! I will try 🙂 Enjoy the cookies!

    • Jen says

      Excited for you to give them a try too!!!

  5. Joanne/WineLadyCooks says

    Jen, I’m loving these cookies. You can bet your bottom dollar I will make these before the week is over. My grandson is going to love them. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.

    • Jen says

      My pleasure Joanne! Such a fun cookie to make with your grandson! You are about to become an even cooler grandma (if that’s possible?!!) Have fun and I hope you love them!

  6. Shelby says

    I love s’mores! We are in NY so we don’t live near a beach, but we do live in the country on a good side piece of property where we have a nice spot for our fire pit. Love your cookies!

    • Jen says

      New York in the country sounds beautiful – the perfect place for a fire pit – so fun! Enjoy the cookies!

    • Jen says

      Yes, perfect for kids! Enjoy!

    • Jen says

      Thanks so much Joanne! I wish I could give you some now!

    • Jen says

      Thanks Tina! I think you will love them! 🙂

  7. Adria says

    Please forgive me if I’m missing something, but when you say “1/2 packed brown sugar,” do you mean 1/2CUP?

  8. Holland says

    Made these yesterday and loved them! Love the texture of the graham crackers and loading them up with marshmallows. Mmmmmmm 🙂

    • Jen says

      So happy you loved them Mike and that you were liberal in your marshmallows :)! Can’t get much better than s’more cookies!

  9. Michele says

    Hi! When you made it in the heat shape how long did you bake it for? I’ve made it as the cookies and I love love love this recipe! Little lazy to make cookies and pouring into pan is easie 🙂 thanks!

    • Jen says

      Hi Michele, I am so sorry, but it was too long ago that I just don’t remember! I think if you keep an eye on the pan, when the cookies starts to turn golden on top, you should be pretty close to being done. Sorry to be of no help whatsoever! I am so happy you love the recipe though!

  10. Nichole says

    I made these and my marshmallows dissolved instead of holding their shape and my cookies turned out more flat than what is pictured in the recipe. They were still yummy but it just reminded me of a normal chocolate chip cookie. Any suggestions on what I may have done wrong?

    • Jen says

      Hi Nichole, I am not sure what to tell you about the marshmallows dissolving, as I have never heard of that before. Did you add them at the end and only bake for 3 minutes? Were they new marshmallows? As far as the cookies turning out flat, it could either be the butter was too soft, or creamed too long. Hope you have better luck next time!

    • Jen says

      You are so welcome Natalie, hope you love them! Your brownies sound amazing as well! It’s hard to beat s’mores!

  11. Mrs. Gamgee says

    Hi, just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks for posting this recipe. It’s awesome! Just made a double batch to take to a family reunion/campout. We likely won’t be able to have a campfire due to the drought conditions, but we can still have smores!

    • Jen says

      Thank YOU for being kind enough to drop I note! I am so glad you love this recipe and what a fun idea to take them to a campfire – everyone will love you that much more for it! 🙂

  12. Bigguy555 says

    this is a stupid question i know but i got to know is it the big bar of hershey or the normal one?

    • Jen says

      Hi Nathan, not a stupid question at all! The regular size Hershey’s bar – 1.5 oz. Enjoy!

  13. Angela says

    Made these yesterday. They were very popular! One thing though… how come the marshmallows in the picture look perfect? Mine melted all over the place. They still tasted amazing! I also added 1/2 c less chocolate chips because I was worried they’d be too chocolatey. Great recipe!

    • Jen says

      Hi Angela, so sorry for my delayed response Shannon, I have been super behind with all the holidays. I am so happy these were a hit! As far as the marshmallows go, I am not sure why yours melted all over the place, this has never happened to me. I wonder if its a brand of marshmallow thing? You could place your marshmallows in when the cookies are almost baked and then finish baking. That should solve it – but the melty marshmallows kind of sound better 🙂

  14. Bushra says

    I had to reply because of my 5 year olds reaction last night when I made him these cookies. “Mom you’re amazing, these are the best cookies in the whole world, I’m going to buy you a gift, no wait I’m just going to give you lots of $$” hahhahahahahhaha I was dying of laughter. I’ve never gotten so many hugs in a 5 minute time span than I did after serving these cookies!

    • Jen says

      oh my goodness that is adorable! Thanks for sharing, you totally made my day! What a sweetheart! I’m thrilled these were such a hit and apparently earned you lots of $$ :)!!!

  15. samantha says

    These are so good! I made these the other day and everybody loved them.

    • Jen says

      Awesome Samantha! I’m so happy they were a hit!

  16. Dayna says

    Can I use self risning flour instead of using all purpose flour, salt, and baking soda?

    • Jen says

      Hi Dayna, in theory it should work but I have never personally tried it so I can’t say yes with full confidence. If you end up trying it please let me know. Best of luck!

  17. Dawn says

    I make these cookies into a big cookie bar at work,( Residential Alzheimer’s Unit). I’ve been told they are sinful, evil and should be illegal. Thanks for sharing.

    • Jen says

      What a fun idea to make a cookie bar! I’m thrilled they were a hit!

  18. Douglas says

    I just made these this memorial day weekend. I love them, my mom loves them, and my dad loves them. You’re three for three so far!

    • Jen says

      Wahoo! That’s a great record so far 😉 Thanks so much Douglas!

  19. Debbie Sheppard says

    Can you freeze the S’more cookies?

  20. Marlene says

    OMG, these are fabulous, Jen! My 3-year old grandson just discovered S’Mores so I made your recipe today to take to him in Boston this week. I’m not sure how may will be left, though, as Mr. Fussy and I love them too! Definitely making these again and posting to FB to share.

    • Jen says

      I love the thought of discovering s’mores for the first time – magic! What a fun and thoughtful grandma you are to make s’mores cookies for him! I’m so happy you both loved them too!

  21. Gladys Hammen says

    These are amazing!!
    Thanks!

    • Jen says

      I’m so happy you loved them Gladys!

  22. Kelsy McCoy says

    Tasty cookies- but I wouldn’t call them SMORE cookies. I’d call them jazed up chocolate chip cookies. Tasty, but if you’re looking for a good s’more flavor then maybe more milk chocolate and Graham crackers and less chocolate chips.

    • Jen says

      I’m so happy you enjoyed the cookies Kelsy, thanks for the feedback!

  23. Blessedishe.org says

    One of the most delicious cookies I’ve ever eaten. It is SO SO GOOOOD. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    • Jen says

      That is a serious compliment, thank you so much!
