Two Peas and Their Pod: Recipe for S'mores Cookies

Recipe for S'mores Cookies



On Sunday we hosted a dessert party for our neighborhood. The tradition is to serve root beer floats, but since we were hosting, I put my foot down. I don't drink soda and I have never liked root beer floats, so I asked if I could bake treats instead. Of course they gave me the green light.

I baked up a storm! I made S'mores cookies, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, 2 plum cakes, Dorie's chewy chunky blondies, and world peace cookies. Whew, I got tired again just typing it:) It was a lot of work, but we had a great time and everyone loved the desserts. We really have the best neighbors and friends.

Today I am sharing the recipe for the S'mores cookies. I made these for the kids, but all of the adults loved them too! They start out as a basic chocolate chip cookie with graham cracker crumbs stirred in. Then you add in mini marshmallows and Hershey chocolate bars. They really taste like a Smore's! Make a big batch because everyone will want "SMORE" of these cookies:)


S'mores Cookies
Adapted from Baked Perfection
(Printable Recipe)

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour ( I added 1/2 cup more)
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups miniature chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
2 Hershey bars, chopped


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium bowl combine the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda, salt. Whisk together. In a separate larger bowl beat together the butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Slowly beat in the flour mixture until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 minutes, and remove from the oven. Push 3 to 4 marshmallows and a few pieces of hershey bar into each cookies. Return to the oven and bake an additional 3-4 minutes until fully cooked. Cool cookies on a wire rack.

Makes approximately 4 dozen cookies.

Oh gosh, I am so glad that you posted this recipe! I saw your tweet about these cookies and my mouth started to water just thinking about them. I definitely want to make these, but they're very dangerous for me! I could easily devour a batch of these yummy looking cookies!

Yum. I love the sound of these. Bet they'd be good (for adults) with dark intense chocolate too, balanced out by the sweetness of the 'mallows.

I am wondering if you can ever make enough of these. I take bets that 90 percent of the people want to have some. I have little kids coming this weekend. I bet they would enjoy these. Add to my baking list.

yes, my favorite part about these cookies, what i enjoy even more than the presence of marshmallows, which i LOVE, is the fact that HERSHEY’S is still legible. that’s freakin’ awesome.

Wow, this recipe really has been making the rounds. I found this recipe first on Cookie Madness and then Make and Bake. I made these two times, and they are so good. I just wish I could have taken out the time to post them instead of gobbling them up haha. They really are good and can be easily halved.

The cookies look wonderful. Who doesn't love s'mores? Who ever raised your hands, I don't believe you. Everyone loves s'mores, even if you are an adult.

Maybe you should reconsider root beer floats. I'm not a soda drinker, but I loves me some root beer. I'm craving a nice dollop of ice cream in a cold root beer as I type this!

Yep, gonna have to try these. They look great! You go, Baker Girl with all those treats.

Yes, I'm going to BlogHer Food in Sept. Can't wait. Good to know you're going. We'll have to meet for sure. How long are you going to be there? I'm staying until Monday.

The marshmallows in there look amazing Maria. You baked that much? How much flour did you go through? Did King Arthur call you and tell you you won a "Most baking in 24 hours" contest? :)

These look great. I've been seeing them around and I know my kids would love them. I think I'll try them this weekend. Maybe along side a float,lol.

Blogger Dana Treat said...

My boys are obsessed with the idea of marshmallows. Obsessed with idea I say because I don't let them have them because they are not veg. I'm thinking of buying some of those vegan ones and if I do, I will have to make these cookies. They would go nuts!

8:25 AM  
Blogger Jamie said...

I so want to make these! they look incredible! I love the way they look, too, with the tiny bits of Hershey's sticking through.
