S'mores Cookies




If you can't get to a campground anytime soon and are craving s'mores, these cookies will be the solution to your problem. With classic s'mores flavors like graham cracker crumbs and mini marshmallows, these cookies will have you dreaming of being by the fireside.

I wanted to make a unique cookie to start off the year and these cookies fit the bill. They are also fun and very easy to make. If you know how to make a basic chocolate chip cookie then the rest should be easy.





My favorite parts of making this cookie were crushing the graham crackers and sticking the mini marshmallows on.

    1. Thanks Sarah. The marshmallows are toasted in the center. I left them in the oven so they could be. Great eye. :-)

  2. No graham crackers in Australia. I think that's a national disgrace. I get them by paying 5 times the going rate to an import company in Melbourne who ships them up here. If you're American as well, it's what you do. I still have enough to make these s'mores cookies!

    1. Wow. I never thought about if graham crackers were an international thing or not. Can you get your son to send you some from the US or would that be too expensive. You sound excited about these cookies. :-) Let me know if you make them.

  3. Yum! These look amazing. My friend has a lovely fireplace that we always make s'mores in during the winter, but it's currently out of commission, so I'll have to make s'mores cookies instead! :)
