Why We Love Chocolate S’mores Cookies

  • With cocoa powder and chocolate chips, these are rich cookies with the best chocolate flavor and fudgy texture. Similar to our fudge cookies!
  • These cookies are a fun twist on classic s’mores! They are stuffed with a gooey marshmallow, just like my marshmallow chocolate cookies.
  • While s’mores are always in season, this is the perfect sweet treat for summer barbeques, birthdays, and more!

Ingredient Notes and Substitutions

ingredients needed to make smores cookies in bowls.

Unsweetened cocoa powder: My favorite brand is Ghiradelli Dutch-processed cocoa powder, but I also use Hershey’s Dark Cocoa Powder.

Chocolate chips: You will need both chocolate chips and chocolate bars for these s’mores cookies. I prefer Ghiradelli 72% Dark Chocolate but you can also use Hershey bars for a more classic s’more pairing.

Marshmallows: This recipe uses large marshmallows, not mini ones. In testing, I found the big marshmallow yields the best gooey centers. Jet-puffed marshmallows melt best!

Graham crackers: You can use any flavor of graham cracker, I used classic honey graham crackers.

Step #6 – Top with chunks of chocolate. As soon as the cookies are done baking, use a round cookie cutter to scoot the edges in to make them perfectly round. Then top each cookie with chocolate chunks.

Expert Baking Tips

  • Use a kitchen scale. Baking with a scale is much more accurate than cup measurements. To convert this recipe, click the “metric” button next to the ingredients title on the recipe card. If you do not have a scale, use a spoon to fluff the flour first, then spoon it into your measuring cup.
  • Chill the dough. This step is important because the dough needs to be cold before stuffing them, otherwise, it will be a sticky mess. It also keeps the cookies from spreading too much in the oven.
  • Keep a damp towel nearby. While stuffing the cookie dough with marshmallows, you may notice that it tends to stick to your hands. To prevent this, have a moist paper towel within reach to wipe your hands and prevent them from sticking to you.

FAQs

Can I use mini marshmallows instead?

I found while developing this recipe that large marshmallows do best. The mini marshmallows tend to melt quickly and disappear into the dough.

How long do they last? Can I make them ahead of time?

Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days.

Can you freeze s’mores cookies?

If you need to freeze them for later, let the cookies defrost in the fridge overnight then bake them the next day. If you bake them straight from the freezer, the marshmallow gets too brown and melty and disappears into the cookie.

Notes

*Measure your flour properly. This is my #1 baking tip! Do not ever scoop a measuring cup into your flour as this always leads to using too much flour. Instead, use the spoon-level method. This means fluffing the flour first, then spooning it into your measuring cup/spoon. For the BEST results, use a kitchen scale!*
