No need to shape your cookies or press into bars, just scoop onto a tray and you are done. Use an ice cream scoop to make spooning the sticky “batter” easier and keep your hands clean.
This recipe is made without butter or coconut oil, for a slightly healthier treat but if you’re having trouble getting the chocolate to melt smoothly you may need to add a bit of oil. Unlike a traditional Rice Krispie treat, it’s the chocolate that melts the marshmallows and there is no buttery flavor. If you like that richer taste, check out the variations for how to add butter or coconut oil.
Kid Friendly Activity!
These cookies make a great summer cooking activity for kids that aren’t old enough to use the stove. Cooling the chocolate for two minutes keeps the chocolate hot enough to melt the marshmallows without risking burned hands. To make this a one bowl recipe, let the kids melt the chocolate in a large bowl and add the marshmallows and cereal to the chocolate,. Less clean up for the both of you!
These make the perfect summer cookout treat or potluck dessert. They are inexpensive to make and you can easily double or triple the recipe to feed a big crowd. Pop them in the fridge for an hour before transporting them so they don’t melt.

VARIATIONS ON NO BAKE S’MORES COOKIES
- Cereal: Use other cereals like plain Cornflakes, Rice Krispies, Pops, or Chex in this recipe. With the chocolate and marshmallows, you want to use a less sugary cereal, unless you have a serious sweet tooth.
- Chocolate Chips: Instead of milk chocolate chips, try dark chocolate chips or white chocolate chips. Substitute half the milk chocolate with peanut butter chips for a peanut butter chocolate coating!
- Marshmallows: For crunchy, sugary marshmallows, use the Jet Puffed Mallow Bits instead of mini marshmallows to top these No Bake S’mores Cookies.
- Add-Ins: You can mix-in up to 1 cup of additional ingredients like M&Ms, peanuts, walnuts, toffee bits, peanut butter cups, dried berries, or cookie pieces.
- Butter: For a smoother, richer chocolate coating, you can add 2-4 tablespoons butter or coconut oil as you melt your chocolate.
