These S'mores Cookies are easy to make and loaded with graham crackers, mini marshmallows and chocolate. It's the perfect bite every time.
Honestly, get ready to get seriously addicted to s'mores cookies. These cookies are going to become a family favourite!
I'm going to let you in on a little secret. These are the best s'mores cookies you will ever eat! No lie, they are incredible.
Years ago they were featured on a TV show you may remember called The Chew. Tracy Pollan made them on the show and everyone raved about them.
Obviously I had to try them for myself. I mean, if they're good enough for Michael J. Fox, they're good enough for me.
Honestly, they really are the best s'mores cookies I've ever tried. This isn't just another celebrity recipe, Tracy clearly knows how to bake.
So, in addition to delicious chocolate, these cookies are packed with graham crumbs and marshmallows too.
In all honesty, I cannot get enough of these beauties especially during the holiday season. I've made them time and time again. They are so darn good!
Give them a try them for yourself. You will freak out when you taste these bad boys. Be sure to come back and let me know what you think of them.
Ingredients for S'mores Cookies
Be sure to scroll to the recipe card for FULL ingredients and directions!
- Graham crackers - I used full size graham crackers for this recipe and then smashed them. You can skip that step and just buy graham crumbs if you prefer.
- Butter - Either salted or unsalted works in this recipe. Use your personal preference. To clarify, it should be room temperature.
- Sugar - I used granulated and light brown sugar in this recipe. That combination will give the cookies the perfect flavour.
- Vanilla extract - Any kind will do.
- Eggs - Large eggs are used for these cookies.
- Flour - I used all purpose flour for this recipe. If you need to substitute gluten free just be aware the consistency of the cookies may be slightly different.
- Baking soda - Don't skip this ingredient if you want a nice fluffy cookie.
- Salt - You can adjust the amount based on your own taste or needs.
- Chocolate chips - I used milk chocolate but feel free to use any kind you prefer.
- Mini marshmallows - Feel free to swap out for multi-coloured ones if you like.
- Chocolate bars - Personally, I think using Hershey is the way to go but feel free to use whatever kind you love!

- Beat butter, both sugars and vanilla in a stand mixer until smooth.
- Then, add the eggs. Mix again.
- In another bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt. Stir.
- Next up, you want to add the dry ingredients to the mixer. Turn it on slowly then amp it up to higher speed to mix.
- Then, turn mixer off, remove the bowl and add the chocolate chips and crushed graham crackers. Stir with a wooden spoon.
- Use a spoon to drop cookie dough on the cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.

Tips for making s'mores cookies
- If you can't find graham crackers you can substitute digestive cookies. You could also use Biscoff cookies if you can find them. Honestly, I think crushed gingersnaps would be great in this recipe too.
- You can use any kind of chocolate pieces. I used Hershey's but feel free to substitute whatever you like. Jersey Milk is a good alternative in Canada. Also, don't hesitate to use dark chocolate if that's your thing.
- Mini marshmallows are perfect for this recipe. If you cannot find them you can use regular marshmallows and break the into smaller pieces. Another option is coloured mini marshmallows if you can find them. Those would be fun if you're making these with the kiddos.
- Be sure to preheat your oven before baking them. This step is always crucial when baking cookies.
- Personally, I like using parchment paper when making cookies. You could also use a non-stick baking mat.
- Some folks prefer to refrigerate cookie dough before baking. In all honesty, I don't think it's necessary for these cookies. That said, if you like doing it that way knock yourself out.
- If you want to jazz them up even more you can add sprinkles, nuts, peanut butter chips, cinnamon chips or even dried fruit.
How to store cookies:
- First of all, always make sure you allow them to cool completely.
- Store the cookies in an air tight container at room temperature. Be sure to use waxed paper or parchment paper to separate the layers of cookies.
- Do not mix with other types of cookies. They will actually take on the flavour of the other cookies if you store too many types in one container.
- Lastly, cookies can be stored at room temperature for 1 to 2 weeks. Personally, I think a week is best if you want them to taste fresh.
Tips for freezing cookies
- Personally, I like using a freezer bag. Make sure you remove all the excess air out before sealing the bag.
- Again, if you are using a container be sure to use waxed paper or parchment paper between the layers. Put a layer of waxed paper over top of the final layer then make sure you lid is snapped on super tight.
- Use a marker to add the date to the freezer bag or container.
- Lastly, cookies can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months if stored properly.
