s'more cookiesWhat happens when you crave s’mores and chocolate cookies at the same time? S’mookies happen. Yes, I am totally coining this term! Soft, fudgy, chocolate cookies bursting with gooey chocolate chips, crispy graham cracker pieces and marshmallows = s’mookies. Just as a disclaimer before you go on reading, there is absolutely nothing healthy about these cookies. This just so happens to be one of those dessert attacks I get every once in a while and bake something majorly fattening and bad for you, but oh-so-good!

I made these for the first time, so it was sort of an experiment. Unfortunately, the marshmallows melted in the oven when the cookies were baking, so that fluffiness factor was pretty much non-existent when they were done :/ Solution: about two minutes before taking them out of the oven, pop a few marshmallows on top, pressing them in the cookies. This would be very tedious for a large batch, but I don’t know a better way to do it.

By the way, did you know that s’mores are an American thing? Well, according to Wikipedia, it is a Canadian thing too. My German husband never heard of them before seeing them for the first time when we were in Tahoe last year sitting by a campfire. I was shocked!! How can any child grow up without s’mores?! OK confession time: in college I kept a box of graham crackers, a bag of marshmallows and chocolate around at all times in case I had a s’more attack. The microwave is actually a fairly decent substitute for a campfire.

OK, here is a question for my non-American, non-Canadian friends out there: did you eat s’mores growing up?

Prep time
Cook time
Total
 
Type: Dessert
Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • ½ cup butter (1 stick, room temperature)
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped graham cracker pieces
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows, divided
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F (175° C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat room temperature butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until creamed together.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt with a fork.
  4. Add flour/cocoa/baking soda/salt mixture a little at a time into butter/sugar/eggs/vanilla mixture by beating at low speed until well blended.
  5. Mix in chocolate chips, graham cracker pieces and ½ cup mini marshmallows by hand.
  6. If oven is still preheating, let chill in refrigerator for a few minutes (I find this helps the cookies keep their shape).
  7. Using a teaspoon, drop batter onto cookie sheets, leaving an inch around each cookie drop. You can stick in chocolate chips and graham cracker pieces onto the tops to make them "prettier."
  8. Place into oven and bake for 6 minutes, then quickly press the other ½ cup marshmallows into the tops of the cookies.
  9. Bake for another 2-3 minutes, then remove from the oven.
  10. Let cool 2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
Makes 24 cookies

  1. These are a perfect solution to our dilemma. I really miss smores and I have not had them since living in the States. Not many campfire’s here in HK…LOL Do you think I could substitute digestive biscuits for the graham crackers as they don’t have graham crackers here in HK. Take Care, BAM

  2. I only heard of s’mores recently and graham crackers recently when I started blogging. I’m still not too sure what they are except that people eat them but also use them a lot in cooking. We don’t have them here in Oz xx

  3. Yummmmm!!! I feel like I’ve gained ten pounds from just looking at your post. They look so delish!! I LOVED s’mores as a kid. I haven’t had them in ages. But I’ve been indulging in other s’mores based desserts. One of my favs is the s’mores creme brûlée.

  4. So delish! I am obsessed with s’mores. I actually posted a picture the other day of me toasting marshmallows with my blow torch (because that’s all I had) and I was craving toasted marshmallows. Is that sad?

  5. These look so yummy! I’m from the UK and I don’t think I knew what s’mores were until I started reading lots of food blogs! We have plain marshmallows (on a stick) sitting round campfires, but sadly not s’mores!

  6. AHHHH THIS IS EVERYTHING I NEED IN MY LIIIIFE!!!

    Isn’t it crazy that those poor non North American children don’t have s’mores? Sad. When my bestie spent half a year in England she had to explain to them what s’mores were and they looked at her like she was such a hick (“you cook marshmallows….over a fire?”) but then she made them and everyone fell in lurrrvee

  7. So brilliant! I love roasting marshmallows, but I actually don’t like eating very many of them… Too much sugar for me! (I’d rather eat the chocolate part of the s’more. ;) ) So instead, I dubbed myself the “Master Marshmallow Roaster” and toasted everyone’s marshmallows for them. I got pretty good at it, so it was a win-win!

    And if you’re looking to make your cookies a little healthier, take a peek at Cooking Light’s cocoa fudge cookie recipe. It’s my favorite chocolate cookie recipe EVER, and I think it’d work perfectly with your s’mookies!
