Let’s file this one under Best Idea I’ve Ever Had.

I love s’mores as much as the next gal, but if I’m being truly honest the sum is not greater than its parts.

Graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows are a wonderful flavorful combination, but a traditional s’more is never as satisfying in real life as it is in my head. The crackers are too crunchy, the chocolate doesn’t really get a chance to melt, and the marshmallow squishes out the sides.

However, making s’mores with homemade chocolate chip cookies fixes all of that and elevates it far and above an average outdoor treat. They become one with the toasted marshmallows and you’re left with a soft, gooey and utterly delightful mess.

This is not an original idea, I know, but this was the first time I gave s’mores with cookies a try and let me tell you— life changing. I’m never going back.

Feel free to use your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, I’ve included mine below. And if you can find the jumbo marshmallows, those are ideal. Enjoy!

How to Toast the Perfect Marshmallow

It can be hard to get an evenly toasted marshmallow over a campfire without it bursting into flames, so here are a few tips.

>> While you can toast as many marshmallows as you’d like on your roasting stick, working with one at a time will allow all of the edges to get crispy.

>> Roast mallows over hot glowing coals and not direct flames.

>> Rotate the mallow slowly as it turns golden brown. Leaving it on one side for too long can cause it to burst into flames or melt off the stick and fall into the fire.

>> If your mallow does catch on fire, quickly blow it out. Do not shake it.

>> Once it’s toasted to your liking, enjoy immediately!

Chocolate Chip Cookie S’mores
A summertime favorite with a chocolate chip cookie twist!
Yield: 1 dozen s'mores
  • 10 tablespoons (140 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup (100 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (215 grams) light or dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2½ cups (180 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (340 grams) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 dozen jumbo marshmallows
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Beat the butter, sugar, and brown sugar on medium high speed with an electric mixer until light and creamy, about 4 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each. Add the vanilla extract.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix until incorporated.

  1. These photos make me die. In the best possible sense of death that is.
    Chocolate cookies, roasty marshmallows….Please be my breakfast? Thanks.

  2. These are great photos and I totally agree with you. Normally graham crackers are just the vessel for smores. I definitely don’t love them so I can totally get behind this!

  3. These DO look like the perfect s’more. Can’t go wrong with cookies and toasted marshmallows.

  4. Stephanie says:

    I actually toasted my first marshmallow over a fire just last summer. Now I can’t get enough of them!

  5. Erin R. says:

    Oh, yes! That IS way better than a normal s’mores! I never would have thought of such a thing, but of course it makes perfect sense now that I see it in action. You’re right on with the marshmallow technique, too. Our grandparents have a wood stove and we had to learn to do marshmallows correctly as kids. I like the looks of your cookie recipe, too. I always like the ones with a little less butter and a little more flour. Great post!

  6. Whoa – SO YUMMY!!! This is totally my kind of treat!
