For this recipe I took my normal chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe and S’moreified it!
I add crushed graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate bar pieces to the dough AND THEN mid bake I add more marshmallows and chocolate to the top of the cookies so it would be all melted and gooey when done baking.
What ingredients do you need?
- Sugar- brown and white
- Large Eggs
- Baking Soda
- Instant Pudding- I recommend Vanilla or White Chocolate
- Graham Crackers
- Mini Marshmallows
- Chocolate Chips
- Chocolate Chunks/Bars
How to make S’mores Cookies from scratch:
- Preheat oven and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper
- Mix together the wet ingredients, set aside
- Mix together the dry ingredients including the crushed graham crackers but not the marshmallows or chocolate yet
- Combine the wet and dry mixtures then stir in the chocolate and mini marshmallows
- Place rounded dough on cookie sheet and bake for 9 minutes then remove baking sheet from oven and quickly but gently press a few extra pieces of chocolate and marshmallow onto each cookie.
- Return baking sheet to oven and bake for another 1-2 minutes.
High Altitude Adjustments
What are the high-altitude adjustments for this S’mores Cookies Recipe?
Decrease white sugar to ⅔ cup, decrease brown sugar to ⅔ cup, increase flour to 2 ½ cups and add 2 teaspoon of water.
What type of pudding should you use and why?
Use a small box of instant pudding mix- they sometimes vary in sizes depending on the brand but you want a box that is between 3-4 oz. I like to use either vanilla or white chocolate flavored- but if you can find a marshmallow pudding flavor that would be amazing!
I add instant pudding because it gives the cookies a nice chewy/soft texture.
What type of chocolate bars should you use?
I stuck with the classic Hershey Milk Chocolate Bar since that’s what I’ve grown up eating on S’mores. If you have a different preferred candy bar you can use that!
How do you keep marshmallows from melting?
Try to form the cookies into balls that don’t have marshmallows exposed or on the edge. I found when that happens the marshmallow will melt out and become a sticky and a little hard- plus it's not very pretty.
This will probably happen regardless to some of your cookies so just cut those edges off. You can see in my picture of the cookies on the tray what it looks like. But even if it does happen, they are still delicious!

What kind of pudding is best chocolate or vanilla? Can I leave the pudding out?
I typically use vanilla when I have it, but yes you can leave it out. The pudding just makes it a little more chewy- but they are still delicious without!
