There is so much to love about these s’mores cookies! Enjoy the sticky-sweet marshmallow flavor without the fire or the mess.
These completely homemade cookies have the same flavors as your favorite campfire treats! Make a big batch and enjoy the tastes of summer.
I couldn’t help but bake a batch of these s’mores cookies. Lately, I’ve been on the cookie prowl, developing more variations of my go-to dessert.
Whenever I’m craving dessert, it’s normally in cookie form. Yes, tiramisu and macarons happen to be my all-time faves, but there’s just something about cookies that are so wholehearted and classic.
These would be perfect on a fall dessert board alongside our sweet and crunchy candied pecans.

What Is A S’more?
I called these smores cookies because they have the same tastes and texture as smores. If you don’t know what a smore is, let me help you out!
So, what is a s’more exactly? It’s a classic, all-American campfire treat. Think of the perfect dessert sandwich: a bar of chocolate and melted marshmallows, melted and squeeze between two crunchy graham crackers.
How To Make Graham Cracker Crumbs
There are quite a few different ways to make graham cracker crumbs. A mortar and pestle is a really fun (and physical way).
Even easier though is to just put the graham crackers in a food processor and let it do all the hard work for you!
Scoop Cookie Dough With A Cupcake Scoop
This is my favorite baking hack of all. Instead of trying to guess how big the cookie dough is as I place them on the baking sheet, I use a cupcake scoop. Mine holds about 3 tablespoons of cookie dough.
As long as all the cookies are the same size, use whatever method is easiest for you.
Add More Ingredients
I figured I could just give my chocolate chip cookie the ultimate s’mores treatment: add more chocolate, throw in some marshmallows and give it a sprinkling of graham crackers.
It’s seriously that simple – and absolutely delish!
Okay, enough rambling – here it is! Just below, I’ve got a list of all the ingredients and all the steps you need to follow to make your own batch of s’mores cookies.
- In a large bowl, cream together butter and both sugars.
- Add egg and vanilla and mix all ingredients together.
- In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt.
- Slowly add dry ingredients into the egg mixture (ie.: wet ingredients). Mix together until cookie dough forms.
- Use a spatula to fold the chocolate chips into the cookie dough.
- Wrap cookie dough in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (or more!)
- Once the time is up, remove from the fridge and preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Fill out a cupcake scoop (about 3 tbsp in size) half way with cookie dough. Press in about 3 marshmallows and top off with more cookie dough.
- Remove from the scoop and form into a sphere. Roll into graham crackers and add to lined baking sheet, keeping them about 1-2 inches apart.
- Bake for 11-13 minutes.
- Allow to cool on a rack – serve and enjoy.
