Skip the campfire and whip up a batch of S'mores Cookies! Made with graham cracker cookie dough, chocolate chips & marshmallow bits, these s'mores cookies taste just like your favorite summer treat so you can have s'mores year round.It’s my last Monday as a college student. My last finals week, my last week being able to claim ‘student’ when someone asks about my occupation, my last week living surrounded by people my age. It feels like my last everything.

I know, I know – it’s just the beginning. I need to be looking forward to the real world, and getting excited about what lies ahead in the future. For a little while though, I just need to be nostalgic and reflect on the damn good four years that have passed by in a blink. 

Skip the campfire and whip up a batch of S'mores Cookies! Made with graham cracker cookie dough, chocolate chips & marshmallow bits, these s'mores cookies taste just like your favorite summer treat so you can have s'mores year round.It’s craziness, truly – but what better way to embrace nostalgia, and the past, than with some cookies that will bring you right back to your summertime campfires when you were a kid? Because seriously, these s’mores cookies do just that.

Most s’mores cookies around taste like a chocolate chip cookie with some crumbled up graham crackers, chocolate chips and marshmallows thrown in. The marshmallows usually get weirdly melty and goopy, and the crushed graham crackers barely add any flavor at all.

Made with graham cracker cookie dough, chocolate chips & marshmallow bits, these s'mores cookies taste just like your favorite summer treat so you can have s'mores year round.For my s’mores cookies, I wanted the whole darn cookie to taste like a graham cracker. To make that happen, I switched out some of the flour in the recipe for graham cracker crumbs. It totally worked, and the cookies had that graham cracker flavor that I adore with all the softness and chewiness of a chocolate chip cookie.

For the chocolate, I hit these cookies with a triple dose. I added milk chocolate chips to give the traditional milk chocolate flavor of s’mores, hit them with some mini semisweet chocolate chips to keep things from getting overly sweet from the milk chocolate, and then garnished with a broken up Hershey’s bar for nostalgia’s sake. Eat the cookies warm for maximum melted chocolate!

I tried making these with mini marshmallows and they melted all over the place. I tried putting a big marshmallow inside and while it made the cookie super chewy, it was also weird and didn’t give the effect I wanted. So…I went with these little Mallow Bits. They don’t melt, and they taste just like the little marshmallows you get in a hot chocolate packet. They definitely do the marshmallow trick in these cookies.

Pro tip: use two of these cookies to make a s’more with a toasted marshmallow and more chocolate and I think you’ll probably die and go to heaven.

They’re definitely crowd pleasers, but be sure to snag a few for yourself before they all fly off the plate. You’ll be happy you did. Enjoy!

S'mores Cookies
 
Author:
Serves: 36 cookies
Ingredients
  • 2 sticks (8 oz.) unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup (4 oz.) white sugar
  • 1¼ cup (8¾ oz.) light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons (¼ oz.) vanilla extract
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs (see notes)
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup mini Jet Puffed Mallow Bits
  • 1 Hershey’s bar, broken up
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Cream the butter and the sugars until light and fluffy. Scrape down the side of the bowl. Continue mixing while adding the eggs one at time. Make sure each egg is incorporated before adding the next. Add the vanilla. Scrape down the bowl with a spatula.
  3. Combine the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda, and salt in another bowl. Whisk to combine. With the machine on low, slowly add the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. With a spatula fold in the milk chocolate chips, mini chocolate chips, and marshmallows.
  4. Use a cookie scoop to drop cookies onto a parchment lined baking sheet. If desired, garnish with broken up Hershey's bar, broken up graham cracker, and addition Mallow Bits.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes. They should be lightly golden on the outside but still look gooey on the inside.
Notes
1 cup of graham cracker crumbs is about 7 crushed graham crackers. I recommend crushing them in a blender to get the finest crumb. Measure after blending.

  4. I have the hardest time baking with marshmallows! I need some of these mallow bits! Also, congrats on being done college! So exciting :D

  5. These cookies are epic! How brilliant to replace flour with graham crumbs! I think smashing more chocolate and toasted marshmallow between two of these would be positively mind-blowing! Congratulations on the last Monday of college! You totally deserve these cookies!

  6. What an absolutely genius idea, love the idea of skipping the camp fire and still enjoying smores. Yummm!

  10. You are seriously so brilliant! I love that you added the graham cracker crumbs to the actual cookie dough to make it taste like that!

  12. These are the ULTIMATE cookies. I totally am drooling over the images and sound of them Rachel! Xx

  13. Congratulations!!! That’s SO exciting about graduating! But really scary at the same time… I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, so I just dove straight back into college to go to grad school. And when I realized that wasn’t for me 6 months later, I dove into full-time food blogging. People still don’t understand it’s truly an occupation, but oh well. ;) I’m sure you’ll find something that fills your heart and your schedule and earns enough to live off of, and if that’s this blog, then that’s even more exciting!

    These cookie look amazing, I’ve been working on a s’mores related recipe myself so that’s good to know about the different marshmallows not working!

  26. Ooooh man! These look too good right now! I want to reach through my screen and grab one!

  27. These cookies look insane! Love the s’mores! So good, definitely need to try these soon!

  28. This is a perfect cookies recipe. Your S’mores Cookies recipe looks very delicious especially with awesome graham cracker crumb, it attracts me. My mother will surely like this delicious recipe, good for summer.. I am excited to make this for my family also. Can’t wait to taste it and share this to my friends. Thanks for this good recipes. Amazing!

  29. I am dying to make these but apparently we don’t have dried marshmallow bits in Canada! But I don’t give a hell, I will import them at any cost to try this recipe.

    PS great picture, they are very sultry-looking cookies. I would definitely take them home with me. To bed…..with a glass of milk and a snuggie.

    • Haha, I have never heard my cookies described as sultry but I LOVE it! Such a bummer you guys don’t have bits! Mini marshmallows would work – but they would definitely look different and the marshmallows would have a different texture. Thanks, Katie!

  30. Congrats on graduating! I like camping, but these look yummier than a s’more over the camp fire :)

  31. I’M COMPLETELY OBSESSED with these cookies!! I luhooooove s’mores and the texture and every single thing about these lovelies is perfection <3

  32. Trish Pines says:

    I made these yesterday. I think there are three left! They were delicious!!! I did make one substitution -I couldn’t find the marshmallow bits so had to use minis. Thanks for a great recipe!

  33. I have a deep love for smores so when I saw these cookies I knew I had to have them. I made them gluten free-just substituted gf all-purpose flour and graham crackers (I used Pamela’s brand)-and they came out perfect! Some of the best cookies I’ve ever made.

  34. These are the most gooey, soft, and yummy cookies ever made! The mallow bits didn’t get stuck to the pan, unlike regular marshmallows but once you bite into them they will get really gooey. So much less messy than regular smores and they taste 100x better! Great for summer cook outs! I didn’t have time to put the extra topping on but the still looked great.

    • So happy to hear you loved the cookies, Amelia! Aren’t they the most perfect summer treat? Thanks for sharing your experience with me :)
