- A Stand or Hand Mixer
- A Cookie Sheet
- Two Large Bowls for Ingredients
- Measuring Cups and Spoons
- A Cookie Scoop (Optional)
- A Food Processor or Blender (Optional, but very helpful)
- Chocolate Chips
- Mini Marshmallows
- Graham Crackers
- Brown and White Sugar
- Baking Soda
- Vanilla Extract
How to Make S'mores Cookies
- Use a food processor or blender to grind up the graham crackers and add in a bowl with the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
- In a separate bowl combine softened butter, sugars and vanilla extract and mix on low.
- Add eggs one at a time and continue to mix until combined.
- Slowly add dry ingredients in and continue to mix until just combined.
- Stir in chocolate chips and marshmallows.
- Cover dough and let chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
- Use a cookie scoop and place chilled dough on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
- Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees or until golden.
- Remove from pan and let cool on a wire rack. Repeat until no dough remains.
Graham Cracker Tip: 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.
Chilling Tip: 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.
Marshmallow Tip: Only add half of the marshmallows to the cookie dough and reserve the rest for the tops. Marshmallows with heat and melt while cooking and if they are all in the dough the cookies can break apart easily. Leaving some for the tops lets you get the nice flavor, without all of them melting in the cookies.
Chocolate Tip: 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.
