One of my all-time favorite summer flavor combinations is a classic s’mores. Crunchy graham cracker, melty chocolate, and gooey marshmallows? I can’t get enough!

I have incorporated this dynamic trio into so many recipes…Peanut Butter S’mores Bars, S’mores Puppy Chow, S’mores Ice Cream Pie and more! I am obsessed with all things s’mores!

These S’mores Cookies are one of my all-time favorite s’mores creations. A combination of two classics: s’mores and chocolate chip cookies. The very best part is the melty marshmallow wrapped INSIDE the cookie dough! It’s a total campfire delight.

How to Make Graham Cracker Crumbs

These cookies have graham cracker crumbs IN the cookie dough to give you the ultimate s’mores experience.

You can buy graham cracker crumbs at some stores, but they are easy to make! Just place the graham crackers in a food processor and pulse until they turn into fine crumbs.

If you don’t have a food processor, put the crackers in a large plastic bag and go over them with a rolling pin until they’re completely crumbled. The kids can help with this step!

Note, you will also need broke up graham crackers for stirring into the dough and for garnishing the cookies. You will love the graham flavor throughout the cookies.

How to Make S’mores Cookies

These cookies are so fun to make and to eat! Let’s get started!

  • Whisk the dry ingredients in a medium bowl: flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt.
  • Cream the butter and sugars together for about 1 minute in a stand mixer. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until it’s just combined.
  • Turn your mixer down to low and slowly add in the dry ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips and graham cracker pieces.  
  • Scoop about 2 tablespoons of the cookie dough into the palm of your hand and gently flatten it. Place a marshmallow half into the center of the dough and work the dough around the marshmallow. It is ok if some of the marshmallow is isn’t covered on top of the cookie, but make sure the bottom is covered so the cookies don’t stick to the baking sheet.
  • Chill the cookie dough balls for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat.
  • Place the cookies on your baking sheet, keeping 2 inches between each cookie!
  • Bake the cookies for 10 to 14 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden brown. The centers will still be a little soft, but that’s okay! Remember, they’re filled with marshmallow!
  • Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle each cookie with flaked sea salt. Let them cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes.
  • To make the cookies extra pretty, gently press a few chopped Hershey’s bar pieces and graham crackers into the tops of each cookie. Transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely and then ENJOY!
