In a small bowl that is safe for the microwave, soften four sticks of butter for about one minute. If you need to use a measuring cup, four sticks of butter are equivalent to 2 cups of butter. Keep an eye on the butter in the microwave since all microwaves are not the same, some cook hotter and faster than others.

Step 8. Add the Mini Marshmallows

There are a couple of different ways to add the mini marshmallows. The easiest way is to add 1 cup of mini marshmallows together with the cookie dough and then stir all together until well blended.

Or you can use a cookie scoop and fill it half full of cookie dough, then push a couple of mini marshmallows into the center of the dough.

Then cover the marshmallows with more cookie dough to hide the marshmallows. Whether you choose the easy way or the cookie scoop way, the cookies will taste the same.

Step 9. Line Cookie Sheet with Parchment Paper

Cut a piece of parchment paper the size of the cookie sheet, then use a cookie scoop or a spoon and place the cookie dough on the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.

Note: Parchment paper is a must. for example, without it, the cookies will spread out more than you want them to making the cookies thinner. Also, the cookies will bake a bit faster, leaving the bottom and the edges of the cookie darker brown than you want them to be.

Step 10. Bake the S’mores Cookies with Chocolate Chips

Put the cookie sheet in the oven and bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes until the edges are slightly browned. After that, let the cookies sit on the cookie sheet for about 2 to 3 minutes. Trying to remove them sooner will break them apart because cookies are very soft right when they come out of the oven.

After the 2 to 3 minutes on the cookie sheet, place the cookies on a cooling rack for about the same amount of time, a couple of minutes so they can completely cool.

Note: Always keep an eye on the cookies while baking them in the oven. All ovens are not the same, some ovens can be hotter than other ovens, hence burning the cookies or baking them too brown on the bottom and around the edges.

FAQs for S’mores Cookies with Chocolate Chips

1. Does the Cookie Dough Need to be Refrigerated Before Baking?

Usually, a recipe will specify whether or not the cookie dough needs to be put in the refrigerator before baking. If the recipe says to put the cookie dough in the refrigerator before baking, then do so.

In this s’mores cookie recipe, we did not put the cookie dough in the refrigerator and we had no problems. However, putting the cookie dough in the refrigerator will not hurt anything so you can if you want to. Also, if you are not ready to start baking the cookies yet it is okay to refrigerate the cookie dough until ready.

2. What is a S’more?

A s’more is usually made by the campfire and it consists of two squares of graham crackers, a piece of Hershey’s chocolate, and a large marshmallow. The first step is to toast the marshmallow over the campfire to get it toasty and hot. Once the marshmallow is done cooking over the fire, the s’more is assembled by placing the toasted marshmallow in between the two squares of graham cracker with a piece of Hershey’s chocolate. The final step is to squeeze the graham crackers together to squish the toasted marshmallow and chocolate while the heat from the marshmallow melts the chocolate.

We call this cookie recipe a s’mores cookie because it has mini marshmallows, crushed-up graham crackers, and chocolate chips mixed into the cookie dough which are the main ingredients of a campfire s’more.

  • The easiest way to add the mini marshmallows is to add them to the cookie dough. But you can add them to each cookie one at a time if you prefer.

    1. Thank you!

    These turned out pretty fantastic! Thanks for the recipe! I substituted Monk fruit sugar for the white sugar and they are still great!

    1. Awesome! I’m glad to hear this 🤗 and I’m happy the Monk fruit sugar substitute worked out for you!

  3. Not quite sure if my substitutes just don’t work for this recipe or I messed up somewhere. I substituted gluten free flour as well as plain yogurt for the eggs due to allergies. My cookies turned out flat.

    1. Hi Candace, thanks for your comment. I don’t think the gluten free flour would be the problem. However, eggs are used as a leavening agent. A substitute could be 1.5 tablespoons of vegetable oil mixed with 1.5 tablespoons of water and 1 teaspoon of baking powder per egg instead of using plain yogurt. We love eggs, so we have never tried this substitution before; if you give it a try, please let us know if this works better.
