Are These S’mores Cookies Better Than Traditional S’mores?

I can honestly say that I love these S’more cookie cups even more than traditional S’mores. A little less mess, but still the delicious combo of graham cracker flavor, marshmallow, and chocolate. The cookie is nice and soft, the marshmallow is lightly toasted, and the chocolate is slightly melted. Yum.

Making Graham Cracker Cookie Dough

Whoever came up with the idea to make a graham cracker cookie dough is genius! It is a wonderful way to incorporate the graham cracker flavor for a s’mores cookie!

I use 7 or 8 full sheets of graham crackers to get about 1 cup of graham crackers crumbs. A food processor makes it super easy and fast to crush the crackers into fine crumbs.

Scooping the Cookie Cups

Although you could do it by hand, a cookie scoop makes portioning the cookie dough evenly quick and easy! Definitely recommended if you’re planning on making a lot of these s’more bites.

Final Thoughts

Getting two dozen cute and delicious s’mores cookies out of one batch makes this a great treat to serve at a party or gathering! Would make for a great BBQ dessert!

I bet there are a ton of different ways to make these s’more cookie cups even sweeter too. For example, you could drizzle chocolate or caramel sauce on them!

Muffin Pan Suggestion

When I first made this recipe I didn’t own a mini muffin pan, so I borrowed a pan from a neighbor. But, I loved these cookie cups so much that I ordered a pan of my own from Amazon!

It is totally worth it to have a mini muffin pan around for this recipe and others. If you’re looking for one, check out the Mega Mini Muffin pan! I love mine!

S’mores Cookie Cups Recipe

5 / 5 (7 reviews)
Prep Time: 30 mins | Cook Time: 10 mins
Yield: 24 cookies | Serves: 24

Ingredients

  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 large marshmallows, cut in half
  • 2 Hershey's chocolate bars (24 chocolate pieces)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, beat the butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth. Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  4. Drop rounded tablespoons of dough into a greased mini muffin tin. Press dough down into the muffin tin using a spoon or something round so there is a small indent in the dough. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until edges are just golden brown. Remove from oven and gently press a half marshmallow, sticky side down, onto each cookie. Let cool completely.
  5. Once cooled, preheat broiler. Place cookies under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, keeping a close eye on them so they don't burn. Once marshmallows are golden brown, remove from oven and place a piece of chocolate on top of each cookie.

  • Jenny

    Hello! Can I make these S’mores Cookie Cups a day ahead of time and store in an air tight container, or do they have to be consumed immediately? Thank you!

    • Melanie

      Hi, Jenny. You can make them ahead of time if you need to, but they are the best served warm because the marshmallow is soft and the chocolate is still a bit melty!

  • Joanne Snyder

    I found this recipe also on six sisters stuff. I made them for my grandkids on the 4th of July. They were gone in a flash! Everyone loved them! Super easy to make.

  • Jessica

    Can I freeze the dough?

  • melissa

    Hello, is it necessary or obligatory to put graham cookies in the mixture?

    • Melanie

      It is a delicious way to get the graham flavor that you would have in a true s’more, but you could try omitting the graham cracker crumbs and adding more flour in its place. I haven’t made it other than how the recipe is written, so I don’t know exactly how much to add or how it would turn out though!

    Thanks for this fun recipe! I made these for my book club cookie exchange. They certainly have the wow factor and taste delicious. I found them pretty easy to make and only required a few ingredients from the grocery. -Madeline

    I did the recipe but the mix was very gooey and sticky…. it was AMAZING I just had a very hard time setting the dough down. What can I do to avoid that?

    • Melanie

      Hmm. I wonder if it needed more flour or graham crackers crumbs? You don’t want the dough to be too dry, but it shouldn’t be very gooey! I think I would maybe try adding a little more flour if you run into that problem again, and only add enough to make the dough manageable. Hope that helps! 🙂

  • Lauren

    I want to make these but my daughter is allergic to eggs. Do you think I could replace the egg with applesauce?

  • Diane

    Just made ghee for 4th of July BBQ…gone before the desserts were put out! Easy and Fabulous!

    • Melanie

      Nice! These s’mores cookie cups are a perfect 4th of July dessert choice! Thank you for your comment and review, Diane.

  • Leah

    Is it possible to make these in a full muffin tin, or does it get too messy?

    • Melanie

      Good question. I haven’t tried making these s’mores cookies in a full-size muffin tin before. It could work, but I’m not sure how many marshmallows would be needed to fill it and it they would cook through like they do with this small version. It could get messy! Please let me know how it goes if you try it out!

  • Pam

    I just made these cookie cups! They are amazing! My husband has had 3 of them so far. Thank you for such a great recipe.

  • Cathy Yoder

    That’s the best! 🙂 Glad you enjoyed them Pam… thanks for taking the time to share your review!
