To make these S’more chocolate chip cookies even more ‘S’more’ add a piece of chocolate (or a Hershey bar) on top! You could also drizzle melted chocolate over the gooey marshmallow top or add a few extra chocolate chips!
Tips for the Perfect S’more Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Make sure your egg and butter are at room temperature.
- Make sure to flatten the cookie dough balls into discs, this will help with even baking. Be careful not to make the cookies too large on top of the graham crackers as they will spread and may not bake through.
- Place the large marshmallow cut side (sticky side) down into the chocolate chip cookie dough and press firmly into the dough. This will help it stay on top of the cookie as it bakes.
- If the marshmallow slides off the cookie while baking, quickly and carefully slide the marshmallow back on top before it cools. Be careful not to get any hot sticky marshmallow bits on you!
- Use large marshmallows as mini marshmallows will spread and fall off of the cookie creating a big mess. If you have no other option but to use mini marshmallows add them into the chocolate chip cookie dough so there is less chance of a mess.
- In order to keep a crisp graham cracker let the cookie cool on the baking sheet before removing. Leave that cooling rack in the cupboard!
Storing S’more Cookies
S’more chocolate chip cookies are best enjoyed the same day for crunchy graham crackers. The graham cracker will start to soften after day one. This may not be a bad thing if you like softer graham crackers. Store S’more cookies in a single layer in a tin or an airtight container for approx. three days.
How To Make S’more Chocolate Chip Cookies
Step One: Prep your ingredients; place approx. 20 graham cracker squares out and cut large marshmallows in half. In a large bowl make your chocolate chip cookie dough.
Step Two: Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place a few graham crackers on the cookie sheet. Roll approx. 1 tablespoon of cookie dough into a ball, then flatten into a disc. Place the cookie disc on top of a graham cracker. Then place two marshmallows on top of the cookie dough, sticky side down.
Step Three: Bake cookies for 10 minutes, or until the marshmallows are golden brown. Let cookies cool on the cookie sheet before removing. Enjoy!
These easy S’more cookies have everything you love in a S’more but as a cookie! They have the combination of a crunchy graham cracker, a soft chocolaty cookie and a gooey marshmallow all piled on top of each other creating the perfect mix.

S’more cookies are best enjoyed the same day, as the graham cracker will begin to lose its crunch and become soft. So it’s ideal to bake the cookies the same day. Although you can prep the chocolate chip cookie dough ahead of time and prep all your ingredients so it’s easy to throw together and bake on the day. The chocolate chip cookie dough will last 2 days in the refrigerator or up to 2 months in the freezer. Allow the cookie dough to come to room temperature before baking.
No, it’s not necessary to chill the cookie dough before baking S’mores. The fun part about these cookies is the gooey chocolatey mess they make. When you chill the dough you firm up the fat in the cookies which will stop the cookies from spreading as much. For this recipe we want the cookies to spread over the graham cracker and make room for those sticky marshmallows!
