Easy S'mores Cookies with mini marshmallows and chocolate pieces ready to eat.

S’mores Cookies; no campfire required

We make S’mores Cookies (and S’mores Bars) all year long, but they’re particularly fun during the summer months to bring the taste of camping to our kitchen without the smoke and mess. They have a soft graham cracker chocolate chip cookie base and are finished off with adding mini marshmallows and chunks of chocolate. They are absolutely delicious and such a winner at BBQ’s and potlucks.

How to make S’mores Cookies:

Make Cookie Dough: Cream together butter and sugars for 2-3 minutes. Mix in egg and vanilla. Add flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda, and salt and mix. Stir in chocolate chips.

Bake: Scoop cookie dough into 2-Tablespoon-size balls and place on baking sheet. Press down on each ball to flatten it slightly. Bake for 8 minutes then remove from the oven and softly press 2-3 small pieces of Hershey’s chocolate and 2-3 mini marshmallows on the top of each cookie. Return to oven for 3-5 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheet for 5 minutes before moving to wire rack.

    These were a big hit for family cookout. They are so delicious and soft! I also had a sticky mess on my first pan, so my advice to keep them from spreading out is to form a ball in your hand and try to keep the marshmallows on top. The rest turned out perfectly once I squeezed the dough together. Parchment is a MUST, as is the 5 min resting on the pan. Recipe also doubles nicely.

    I am a very seasoned and experienced baker, I followed the directions to a tee, and these probably taste ok, but they turned into a horrible, melted mess. Was very disappointed since this site is usually a go to for new recipes. Do not waste the ingredients to make these

    Melted into a horrible mess. Edges burned within 6-7 minutes and the middle was a pool. Followed the recipe down to the gram in measurements and I bake often. Seriously disappointed. I don’t know if it was missing more of a binder or what but it did not hold together at ALL. I should have listened to the previous comment stating this.

    We made these for the 4th of July and they were delicious and a huge hit with everyone! Thank you for the great recipe; I will definitely be making these again!

  5. Oh my, these look amazing! I love baking over the weekend as well My daughter and I will have to give these a try!

    1. I love baking on the weekends too 🙂 Can’t wait til my daughter is old enough to bake with me!

  6. Mmm those look like such a delicious treat! It’s funny, I was actually telling my boyfriend the other day I was craving s’mores. It’s a sign… 😉 Thanks for sharing this recipe! I’ll definitely be trying it.

        Great crowd pleaser, instead of mixing in the marshmallows I smoosh three or four on top right after I take them out of the oven. No melty mess and they look extra fancy!

  7. A few weeks ago I posting a recipe for S’Mores Cupcakes but I’ve never heard of S’Mores Cookies OR S’More’s Bars!! I love both these ideas – – and I’m ‘pinning’ this immediately!!

  8. Ohhh my goodness, these look good. I’ve been super-craving smores lately, and this definitely doesn’t help! I’m so sad that I don’t have any marshmallows! :'(!

  9. Wow, these look scrumptious! A lot better than mushing marshmallow and Hershey’s between to graham’s for my s’mores fix! lol

    PS. Your picture made me salivate – great job!
