The chocolate cookie is probably one of the yummiest, fudgiest chocolate cookies I’ve ever met.

S’Mores Cookies are Where It’s At

Considering these s’mores chocolate chip cookies are some of my favorite cookies in the history of ever, it was only a matter of time before I figured out an ultimate chocolate version. 

To make the chocolate cookies more accessible, I forewent the mini dehydrated marshmallow bits used in the chocolate chip version and instead used mini marshmallows. 

HOWEVER, you know I had to try it both ways. And I’m happy to report that throwing the marshmallow bits {aff. link} into the cookie batter is a very righteous endeavor that ends well, too.

(When I used the dehydrated marshmallows, I didn’t add marshmallows or graham crackers on top – the cookies aren’t as cutesy, but still v. v. delicious.)

For a cookie that will steal the show, though, it’s all about the classic, soft, gooey mini marshmallows on top. 

My favorite kind of s’more (over a campfire) is made with chocolate graham crackers, Hershey’s special dark chocolate bar, and a perfectly toasted enormous marshmallow.

So these double chocolate s’mores cookies are speaking my s’mores love language.

The cookie dough is pretty basic, other than adding graham crackers along with the flour and cocoa powder. 

It’s important that the graham cracker crumbs aren’t ground into dust. They should be coarse with some texture. You can see in the picture below what the crumbs should look like. 

Keeping them a little bit coarse helps the graham flavor come through without creating a dense cookie.

Making the S’mores Cookies

  1. Scoop cookie dough, roll in to balls, and bake for 7-8 minutes (we’re deliberately underbaking here, please adhere to the protocol for best results)
  2. Take the baking sheet out of the oven and quickly but gently press four mini marshmallows into the top of the cookie, leaving a cute little space in the center of the marshmallows
  3. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs in the center and on top of the cookie. It’s going to be a bit messy. Don’t stress. FOLLOW THE PROTOCOL. 
  4. Bake the cookies for another 1-2 minutes until the marshmallows soften and puff a bit. You could also get in there with your rock star kitchen torch and add a bit of color to the marshmallows if you so desire. 
  5. Drizzle the cookies with chocolate. 

The biggest key is to not overbake the cookies. They should only bake for about nine minutes total. We want the cookies soft and super fudgy.

I’m a lazy, somewhat wasteful chocolate drizzler. 

I dip into the melted chocolate with a fork and fling it around with reckless abandon for a very rustic, very true-to-Mel casual feel. 

You can spoon the melted chocolate into a bag, snip the corner, and go for a cultivated, cufflinks, elegant look. You won’t waste as much chocolate. However, can’t guarantee the process will be as freeing to your soul.

The drizzled chocolate adds personality and also helps keep all the toppings in place. 

This cookie has it all. 

Looks and a sweet spirit.
Insane amount of chocolate. 
Texture galore (crispy crunch with soft and gooey!)

Get on board with the double chocolate s’mores cookie. You won’t regret it.

Double Chocolate S’Mores Cookies

4.95 stars (51 ratings)

Ingredients

Cookies:

  • 1 cup (227 g) butter, softened to room temperature (I use salted)
  • ¾ cup (159 g) granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup (159 g) lightly packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cups (249 g) all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup (64 g) natural, unsweetened or Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 1 cup (128 g) coarse graham cracker crumbs, about 9 rectangle crackers (see note)
  • 2 cups (340 g) semisweet chocolate chips

Toppings:

  • Mini marshmallows
  • ½ cup (64 g) coarse graham cracker crumbs
  • ½ cup (85 g) semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or using a handheld electric mixer, combine the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking soda and salt, and mix until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well-combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Add the flour, cocoa, graham crackers and mix until just combined. Add chocolate chips and mix until combined.
  • Roll about 2-3 tablespoons of cookie dough (I use a #40 cookie scoop) into balls and space a couple inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake for 7-8 minutes.
  • Remove baking sheet from the oven and lightly press four mini marshmallows into the top of each cookie – the cookie will be puffy but will flatten a bit as you press in the marshmallows. Leave a little space in the center of the marshmallows.
  • Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs in the center and over the top. Return to the oven and bake 1-2 more minutes until the marshmallows are slightly puffed and soft.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  • Melt the 1/2 cup chocolate chips and drizzle over the cooled cookies. Let the chocolate set up before serving (or not! messy fingers are totally ok).

Notes

Graham Cracker Crumbs: Don’t grind the graham crackers into dust. This recipe works better if they are in coarse crumbs (both for taste and texture).
