S’more Cookies are as close to the real thing as you’ll find. Graham cracker crumbs are in the batter giving not only the flavor you expect from a S’more but it also provides a great texture. Marshmallows are toasted on top and then chocolate pieces are melted when removed from the oven.
Each summer I try a ton of recipes trying to re-create a s’more. There is nothing that says summer more than making s’mores over a fire. I’ve tried making them in the oven, but it’s just not the same, S’more bars with Rice Krispies have all the flavors in a bar.
I haven’t been very successful in finding a cookie that recreates the taste and texture of a s’more. However, this cookie recipe comes pretty close. I got the idea from a cookbook, Cookies and Cups, and if all the recipes work as well as this one, I’ll be thrilled. My cookies looked just like the ones in the cookbook!
How to get cookies to taste like S’mores
The cookies have all the ingredients of a s’more: graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate. What makes this recipe more s’more like than most is the roasted mini marshmallows that are added half way through the baking process. They turned a nice golden brown just as if they had been roasted over a fire. Once you take the cookies out of the oven, you immediately put some chocolate pieces on top that melt right into the cookie. We decided these were best right out of the oven with everything gooey just like the real thing.
However, Natalie said they were still delicious eaten later but she does not recommend eating them frozen. Microwave them for just a few seconds to get the chocolate gooey or just eat one at room temperature. I made very large cookies, but have since made smaller ones and just cut the chocolate smaller.
How do you make S’more Cookies
Step 1: Cream butter and sugar and add eggs, vanilla and graham cracker crumbs. Add baking soda, salt and flour and then add chocolate chunks.
Step 2: Scoop the dough onto a cookie sheet and bake for 6 minutes. Remove from the oven and add mini marshmallows to the top. Return to oven and bake for 6 more minutes.
Step 3: Remove from oven and immediately press chocolate squares onto the top of the cookie so that the bottom melts a little. Allow to cool slightly.
This may be as close to a s’more as you can get without starting a fire in the backyard. I did send some of these to friends for an after dinner treat, and they agreed that they were fabulous, one of the best cookies they’ve had.
