The BEST S'mores Cookies!

These s'mores cookies are to-die-for! It's a soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie with graham cracker crumbs in the batter, topped with marshmallow cream, chocolate and graham cracker pieces. Everyone who has tried them has raved about them.


S'mores Cookies


There is a S'mores cookie at Crumbl that my husband really likes. We decided to try and recreate it. Our version is a regular sized cookie, but it has the same marshmallow cream topping, chocolate and graham cracker crumbs on top. 

I've made these several times and shared them with a variety of people. I've gotten so many compliments, everyone loves them! They will be the first thing to go at any gathering. They really are the best cookies.

After you make these cookies, try giant chocolate chip cookies, cake batter snicker doodles, or peanut butter kiss cookies. At the end of the post is a list of the rest of my cookie recipes.

ingredients for smores cookies
Below are all the ingredients you will need to make these delicious chocolate chip marshmallow cookies.
  • butter
  • brown sugar
  • sugar
  • eggs
  • vanilla extract
  • cornstarch
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • chocolate chips
  • Hershey bars
  • marshmallow fluff
  • graham crackers

A few tips about the ingredients:
Butter - the butter should be softened. (NOT melted) I get the butter out of the fridge and let it sit out on the counter for an hour or two before making the cookies.  I use salted butter in this recipe. If you substitute unsalted butter add an extra 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

Chocolate Chips - You can use milk chocolate chips (my favorite) or semi-sweet chocolate chips. Use your preference, or what you have on hand.

Hershey's chocolate bars - I buy the mini bars, but you can buy a 3-4 full sized candy bars instead. Again, you can get milk chocolate or special dark, whatever you prefer. If you don't have Hershey's bars, you can substitute extra chocolate chips.

Marshmallow fluff - Also called marshmallow cream is THE key to these delicious cookies. Regular or mini marshmallows won't have the same effect. 

Graham Crackers - I use graham crackers to make my own graham cracker crumbs. 3 1/2 sheets will equal about 1/2 cup once crushed. Save the remaining 1/2 sheet to crumble and use as a topping for the cookies.

I normally use my Kitchen Aid with the paddle attachment to make these cookies. It comes together much more easily. 

I opted to use a glass bowl and hand mixer for the pictures so you can see more easily what the dough should look like at each stage. (Photos inside a tall metal bowl are dark and hard to see) 

Note: You can find the printable Smores cookies recipe at the end of the post.

Begin by combining 1 cup of softened butter with 1 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of granulated sugar. Using a mixer or KitchenAid, mix for 3-4 minutes until the butter is fully incorporated with the sugars.

Tip: leaving the butter out at room temperature for an hour or two will give you perfectly softened butter without melting it, like sometimes happens if you try and microwave it. You DON'T want melted butter.

Next add 2 eggs and a teaspoon of vanilla and mix until the egg is mixed in. The batter should be loose and wet at this point.

Now it's time to add the dry ingredients. Add 3 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of both cornstarch and salt and 3/4 teaspoon of baking soda.  

Also add 1/2 cup of graham cracker crumbs right into the batter. This will add some of that yummy graham flavor. 3 1/2 graham cracker sheets will equal 1/2 cup once crushed. I place them in a zip top bag and smash them, using a rolling pin.

At this point the dough becomes quite firm and I often turn to a wooden spoon so I don't overheat the little motor on my inexpensive hand mixer. (This is where a stand mixer really comes in handy.)

Now it's time to add the chocolate. I am a big fan of milk chocolate, but you can use semi-sweet if you like that. 

Add 1 cup of chocolate chips and then chop up 6-8 mini Hershey's bars and stir them into the dough.

Using a cookie scoop, place 12 cookies on a greased cookie sheet. 

I prefer to use a cookie scoop because I can ensure that I get evenly sized cookie dough balls and the cookies will all be quite similar in size. 

Bake cookies at 400 for 7-9 minutes. (8 minutes was perfect for my oven.) The edges should just barely be starting to brown. 

Slightly underbaking will give you a nice chewy cookie.

While the cookies are baking prepare the toppings. Break up the Hershey's bars and break the graham cracker into small pieces.
creating and indentation in the cookies using a spoon

Immediately after you pull the cookies from the oven, use the back of a spoon to create an indentation in the top of each cookie.

I do this right on the pan and then let them sit on the pan an additional 2 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.

Add a scoop of marshmallow creme to the center of each cookie. You want to add the marshmallow creme while the cookies are warm, but not too hot. Let them cool about 5 minutes before adding it.

Top with a square of chocolate and sprinkle pieces of graham cracker on top of the cookie.  Store cookies in an airtight container.
