S’mores Cookies that actually taste like S’mores, not a Chocolate Chip Cookie with marshmallows, and they won’t be messy to eat like these classic S’mores Recipe (made 4 ways!). The secret is in the addition of the graham cracker crumbs that replace part of the flour mixture in the recipe. I’m sharing this recipe to celebrate an awesome cookbook. This is from my friend Hayley Parker’s book, Two In One Desserts.

These S’mores Cookies are the best cookies for summer, but they’d also be an unexpectedly awesome dark horse to be your favorite cookie addition to your Christmas Cookie rotation. One bite of these S’mores Cookies and December will feel like a nice warm summer day.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use graham crackers in S’mores Cookies?

Some people like to make these S’mores Cookies with graham crackers, meaning actual chunks of graham crackers in the cookies. While this can look pretty, the graham cracker can actually get pretty dry in the oven and won’t have a moist flavor. These S’mores Cookies without graham crackers are actually made instead with graham cracker crumbs which have moisture added in by the wet ingredients in the dough.

Why are cereal marshmallows used in S’mores Cookies?

The use of marshmallows in this recipe is specific to cereal marshmallows. You don’t have to buy Lucky Charms to pick out marshmallows for this recipe you can find them in a parmesan cheese style shaker at the grocery store (this brand) or on Amazon in varying sizes including these GIANT bags.

If you use mini marshmallows in your recipe for these S’mores Cookies, what will happen is the mini marshmallows will expand with the heat of the oven then they’ll shrink back down as the cookies cool. You’ll have dried shells of marshmallows without any moisture inside. If you’d like to find a way to use fresh marshmallows I’d highly recommend using them to make a gooey marshmallow cream filling that you can use to make the best ever gooey s’more cookie sandwiches.

What kind of chocolate is used for S’mores Cookies?

The recipe calls for semi-sweet chocolate chips but you can use milk chocolate in place of the semi-sweet. The next time you make them you can also chop up Hershey’s chocolate bars or use chocolate pieces in addition to the mallow bits in making these delicious cookies.

Can I freeze unbaked cookie dough?

This cookie dough also freezes really well. Using a cookie scoop, just scoop the dough onto a baking sheet, and freeze for about an hour. Then transfer the dough balls to an airtight container, using parchment paper between each layer. When you’re ready to bake, you can place the frozen cookie dough right onto a baking sheet. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and bake for 12-15 minutes. Because the dough is frozen they will take an additional few minutes to bake. They may also be less wide as they bake because they will take shape before the centers have fully defrosted. If you’d like your cookies to be shaped normally be sure to defrost the dough fully in the fridge before baking.

  1. Hi Sabrina,
    These sound awesome, I know the grandkids will love them! I just ordered the
    marshmallow bits. Is the egg yolk absolutely necessary?
    Keep up the good work!

  2. These are amazing, my daughter might crown me mother of the year if I dusted off my kitchen aid to make her a batch.
