S’mookies AKA S’mores Cookie Recipe
Did you know you can enjoy the tasty flavors of S’mores all year round? Typically a summer treat, s’mores are those gooey graham cracker sandwiches filled with a toasted marshmallow and milk chocolate Hershey bars. Indulge on while gathered around a roaring campfire with whittled sticks and big, fluffy marshmallows, they’re an iconic camping, picnicking and grilling dessert.
I was a fan of the traditional s’mores as a child, but as an adult, I prefer having a variety of s’mores inspired desserts from which to choose! One of my favorites are s’mores in cookie form or S’mookies. Add some graham cracker crumbs to your cookie dough along with some mini-chocolate chips, then before they are fully baked, dot with mini-marshmallows and chunks of Hershey bars. Voila, gooey s’mores cookies or s’mookies!!
What Are S’mores?
Never heard of s’mores? The classic s’mores are composed of a hot, fire toasted marshmallow sandwiched between 2 graham cracker squares with a square of chocolate. As the hot marshmallow contacts the chocolate, the chocolate melts and forms a heavenly treat requiring no silverware, just napkins.
The word s’mores is a contraction of the words “Some” and “Mores”, as fans of these campfire treats always want “some more” after their first indulgence. Possibly first developed by the Girl Scouts, s’mores were in a 1927 publication called “Tramping and Trailing.”
Numerous variations have been developed using different chocolates like Reese’s peanut butter cups and a variety of graham crackers and cookies. Plus, there are numerous s’mores inspired desserts ranging from ice cream sundaes, to cheesecakes to bar cookies.
These s’mookies or gooey s’mores cookies were a universal hit. I shared some with my sister and brother-in-law in Denver (my BIL is on crutches and, despite post-surgical pain, he made numerous trips to the kitchen to retrieve these cookies), my son’s roommate, Allison, declared these the best cookies she’s ever tasted (seriously!) and his other roommate, Alex, had them for breakfast.
I tell ya, they are THAT good. And you know where I found the recipe? On Danielle’s blog, Hugs and Cookies XOXO, as it’s that time again. We do our own version of the Secret Recipe Club each month, where we each bake from each other’s blogs on the second Monday of the month. I hit the jackpot with these s’mores inspired S’mookies!

Tips for Making S’mookies AKA S’mores Cookies
- This s’mores cookie recipe is mixed together like your typical cookies. The sugars and butter is creamed together, eggs are added, then the dry ingredients mixed in. Graham cracker crumbs in addition to the flour, salt and baking soda, provide the graham cracker component of their namesake.
- Mix with a wooden spoon or silicone spatula for the best texture. Do not use a mixer unless on the lowest speed and only until the ingredients are just combined. You want to minimize gluten development.
- Chocolate chips are one of these sm’ookie’s chocolate components. After the cookies are baked both squares of Hershey bars and mini marshmallows pressed into the warm cookies compete the s’mores trio.
- I use a medium cookie disher to make evenly sized cookies.
- The chocolate bar pieces and marshmallows would not keep their iconic shapes had they been mixed into the dough, so they are gently pressed into the cookies when they come out of the oven.
- Store the cooled cookies at room temperature in a covered container, layered between parchment paper. They can also be frozen for about 3 months.
- PRO-Tip: If your cookies are slightly misshaped, they can be made into rounder by pressing their sides with a spatula while still hot.
- PRO-Tip: Take these S’mookies to your next cookout, picnic or bonfire and use them instead of graham crackers to make some outrageously decadent s’mores! Plus, they won’t make your hands as sticky as traditional s’mores!
