S’mores Cookies Recipe Tips and Suggestions

Tip 1: If you do not have a food processor or blender you can place your graham crackers in a zip-lock bag (make sure all the air is out) and smash the crap out of them with the back of a large spoon or rolling pin. The blender/food processor method is much easier, but the bag will work as well for this s’mores cookies recipe.

Tip 2: Let the s’mores cookies chill for as long as possible, so the dough holds together perfectly. There is a lot of butter in this recipe giving them a chewy delicious texture, but they need to chill or they will spread out too much while baking.

Tip 3: You can add some extra chocolate chips and mini marshmallows to the tops of the cookies right before they go into the oven to make the cookies super s’mores like.

Tip 4: I like to use a combination of mini and regular chocolate chips or chunks for these s’mores cookies. This is not required and you can use whichever you prefer. The mini chocolate chips help hold the dough together better, but I love the big hunks of chocolate as well.

How should I store leftover homemade s’mores cookies?

For best results, store leftover s’mores cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. These homemade cookies will stay fresh for up to 10 days.

Can I make the s’mores cookie dough ahead of time?

Yes, you can make this s’mores cookies recipe ahead of time and store in the fridge for up to 3 days (covered). When ready to bake the cookies follow recipe instructions.

Can cookie dough be frozen?

Yes, you can freeze the s’mores cookie dough for up to 3 months. Follow recipe instructions and scoop the cookies like you were going to bake them. Add the balls of cookie dough to a freezer bag making sure to get all the air out. When ready to bake the s’mores cookies, follow bake temperature and time. You may need to add an additional minute or two, but set the timer for the lowest time to avoid burning them. The freezer option is great because you can bake small batching and get your cookie fix in whenever it hits!

Notes

  • Leftover Storage: Store cooled cookies in an airtight container for up to 10 days at room temperature. 
  • Freezer Option: Prepare dough per recipe instructions and scoop dough as if your were to bake them into a freezer bag. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to bake follow recipe instructions. 
  • Prepare Ahead of Time: Prepare dough up to 3 days ahead of time and store covered in the fridge until ready to bake. 
  • Softened Butter: You can leave your butter to soften at room temperature for about an hour, or place in microwave for ~30 seconds. The butter should NOT be melted completely. 
  • Chocolate Chips: You can use mini, regular or chunks for this recipe. I like to use a mix, since the minis help the cookie hold together better but this is not required. 
  • Optional Topping: For some extra pop and goodness to your cookies top the raw cookie dough balls with additional chocolate chips, marshmallows and graham crackers!

    I’m off for a weekend in the mountains in a couple of weeks and these sound perfect! But since I’m a novice to baking, I’m hoping you could clarify something for me. How do I measure 1-1/2 cups of graham crackers? Also could I leave some chunks of graham crackers for crunch instead of pulverizing them, would that affect the cookie? Thanks much!

      Hey Ruby! So for measuring the graham crackers 1 1/4 cups is how much you should have after they are crushed. It is about 10 full graham crackers that will get you the amount you need. And sure you could leave some chunks for some crunch if you would like! You could also sprinkle some crushed graham crackers over the top of the cookies before baking them. Have a great day and hope you enjoy them 🙂
