How to Make S’mores Cookies
- Cream the butter and sugars. In a large mixing bowl, add the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Cream them together with an electric hand mixer, about 2-3 minutes.
- Add the egg and vanilla. Now add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract, and mix at high speed for about a minute.
- Sift in the dry ingredients. Place a a fine-mesh sieve over the mixing bowl and add the all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled off), baking soda, and salt. Sift the dry ingredients in and then mix at low speed with the hand mixer to avoid flour flying everywhere.
- Add in the rest of the ingredients. Finally, add the chocolate chips, chopped Hershey’s bars, mini marshmallows, and crushed graham crackers.
- Mix and scoop. Mix everything together with a spatula and then scoop the cookie dough out with a medium-sized cookie scoop.
- Bake. Place the cookie dough balls on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 9 minutes. Allow to cool.
Tips for making the BEST S’mores cookies
- Spoon and level off the flour– You don’t want these cookies to be too dry, so spoon your flour into the measuring cup and level it off to get the exact amount without extra packed in.
- Sift the dry ingredients- Again, you don’t want dryness in these s’mores cookies, so use a fine-mesh sieve to sift in the dry ingredients and avoid clumps in your dough.
- Make them look prettier- Add extra chunks of Hershey’s chocolate, crushed graham crackers, and mini marshmallows on top before baking these cookies so they look even better.
- Let them cool. They will be very soft when they come out of the oven so let them cook and firm up a little before serving them, so they don’t fall apart.
Can you use regular sized marshmallows?
Yes, you can. If you don’t have any mini marshmallows, then you can use the larger-sized ones. Just cut or tear them into smaller pieces so they fit in the cookie and won’t bubble over.
How to avoid a marshmallow blowout
If your s’mores cookies do have a marshmallow blowout, just push the edges back with a knife or spatula as soon as they come out of the oven. You can also reshape them with a circle-shaped cookie cutter.
As a precaution, you might want to keep your marshmallows near the center of the cookie ball. To do that, just mix and scoop your cookie dough balls, and then make a small dent in the center and add the mini marshmallows then. Either way is fine.
How to Store them
These chewy S’mores cookies will last for up to 4 days in an airtight container at room temperature. You can also freeze them for 2-3 months in a freezer ziplock bag.
Can you freeze s’mores cookie dough?
Yes, you can freeze this cookie dough. Place your cookie dough balls on a baking sheet in the freezer for an hour to firm up. Then transfer the dough balls to a ziplock freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to bake, there is no need to thaw them. Just bake them straight from the freezer.
