Ingredients for homemade s’mores cookies
All-purpose flour – helps make a soft, chewy cookie with a crispy exterior
Baking soda – helps create a soft, fluffy cookie
Salt – has a binding effect on gluten and adds strength to the flour
Unsalted butter – real butter, softened to room temperature
Granulated sugar – for that sweet and slightly crisp texture
Light Brown sugar – this gives a subtle sweetness while helping make the cookies soft and moist
Eggs – room temperature
Vanilla extract – this will enhance the flavors
Mini marshmallows – Use the mini to have a bit in every bite!
Graham crackers – roughly chopped.
Hershey chocolate bar – Sure, you could use chocolate chips, but I’m a traditional gal and prefer to stick with a Hershey bar. Let’s give a nod to the classic s’mores!

Step 1: Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars together until smooth. You can use a stand mixer or a large bowl and hand mixer.
Step 2: Next, add in the eggs, vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt. Stir until completely incorporated.
Step 3: Add flour 1/2 cup at a time until well combined and lump free!
Step 4: Fold in the marshmallows, crunchy graham cracker crumbs, and chopped Hershey’s chocolate bar until they are incorporated in the smores cookie dough.
Step 5: Using a cookie scoop, scoop your dough onto a prepared baking sheet leaving 2 inches of space between each cookie.
Step 6: Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are slightly brown. Let cookies cool on a wire rack to your desired temperature, then enjoy these special treats!
Expert baking tips for Smore Cookies
Well, don’t be snarky, but follow the recipe instructions! This is the best s’mores cookie recipe. Also, make sure the ingredients are at the right temperature (butter and eggs at room). I promise it makes a difference. Chill the dough before scooping. This will help prevent flat cookies. And I know you want to double the smores cookie recipe, but practice a little patience and be sure to bake one batch at a time. My final tip for baking the best s’mores cookies is to cool them on a baking pan first. You’re going to feel eager to snatch a bite straight out of the oven, but be sure the cookies cool a bit before plating.
Variations to this recipe
Are you feeling wild? Try substituting Hershey’s with Nutella! You’ll love it.
You can also switch up these chewy s’mores cookies by adding perhaps a bit more savory crunch. If you’d like or need to, you can substitute the graham crackers for saltines, pretzels, ritz crackers, or even potato chips.
I think this cookie would taste amazing with coconut flakes or melted caramel. Mmm. You can get creative with the variations.
Can you make s’mores cookies with chocolate chips?
Absolutely. I said to use Hershey’s bars, but you can use another deliciously melty chocolate option. Already have milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips? Go for it!
Storing S’mores Cookies
Make sure they’ve cooled completely before storing them in an airtight container. They should remain fresh for up to 4 days.
Can I freeze the S’mores Cookie dough?
Definitely, I recommend freezing cookie dough balls for no longer than 3 months.
