Deep Dish S’mores Cookies

Deep Dish S'more Cookies | Cookies and Cups

Ask and you shall receive.

I asked you guys for help last week.

Because sometimes my brain becomes an idea desert.


So yeah, I asked you guys on facebook what kind of deep dish cookie you would want to see next.

And while there were some pah-ritty fantastico ideas to choose from, there were more votes for Deep Dish S’mores Cookies than any other.


Maybe because it’s summer, or maybe because you guys just love your oozy marshmallow and melty chocolate…whatever, I’m not gonna argue.

That would just be silly.


So let’s break these cookies down

Deep Dish S'more Cookies | Cookies and Cups

They’re kind of gorgeous, if I do say so myself.

And I do.  Say so myself.


First and foremost you need this pan.  You NEED it.

They call it a muffin top pan, but come on now…who makes muffin tops?

 photo IMG_1556_zps725e18a4.jpg You could also use a whoopie pie pan.  Again, people you don’t need a pan to make whoopie pies.

But you DO need a Deep Dish Cookie pan.  Which is really what it should be called.


Anyhow, you can see I sprayed it with cooking spray…or you could grease it with butter.  Either way.


Next, make your cookie dough.  BUT along with all the usual suspects you’re gonna add some crushed graham crackers…

You could really use any milk chocolate here, but I have to say, it’s not a S’more (s’mores?) in my house unless you use Hershey’s.

Also is S’mores singular and plura…like moose?  Or fish?  Would you ever just say s’more? My brain hurtsssss.

Next there are these Mallow Bits… you could easily omit them from the recipe if you can’t find them..but they seem to be widely accessible these days in all the local supermarkets.  photo IMG_1573_zps34d4093d.jpg Dump that whole little container into your cookie dough…

 photo IMG_1575_zps454f919e.jpg And refrain from face planting into said dough…

 photo IMG_1610_zpscc991c4d.jpg Press about 1/3 cup of the cookie dough into your prepared pan.

While they are baking get your marshmallows ready by cutting them in half…  photo IMG_1600_zpsb36b7082.jpg When there is a few minutes left of the baking press the halved marshmallow on top of the cookie and continue baking until the marshmallow is puffed and lightly browned.

When they’re done, immediately press a piece of chocolate on top.  The heat from the cookie will melt the chocolate…

Seriously…you guys are geniuses! Deep Dish S'more Cookies | Cookies and Cups Also, you can totally make these cookies without the special pan, just bake them up like regular chocolate chip cookies!


Other ways I’ve use my Deep Dish Cookie Pan:

Deep Dish Milky Way Cookies

White Chocolate Filled Snickerdoodles


Deep Dish S’mores Cookies
Makes 15 Deep Dish Cookies
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1½ cups light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2¼ cups flour
  • 1 (3 oz) container Marshmallow BIts
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped milk chocolate bars (about 6)
  • 8 Large Marshmallows, cut in half
  • 2 Milk Chocolate Bars broken into pieces
  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Spray muffin top or whoopie pie pan dish with cooking spray.
  3. In bowl of stand mixer cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Turn speed down and add in eggs and vanilla, mixing until smooth.
  4. With mixer on medium-low speed add in graham cracker crumbs, baking soda and salt. Mix until incorporated.
  5. Turn mixer to low and add in flour until just combined.
  6. Stir in your Marshmallow Bits and chopped milk chocolate.
  7. Use ⅓ cup of cookie dough for each cookie, pressing mixture evenly into the pan.
  8. Bake for 8 minutes, remove from oven and press marshmallow half onto the top. Continue baking for 4-5 minutes until marshmallow is puffed and slightly golden and cookie is lightly golden.
  9. Remove and immediately press reserved chocolate onto the top of the cookie. It will melt from the heat of the cookie.
  10. Allow cookies to cool in pan for at least 10 minutes. Loosen edges with knife and carefully remove from pan, transferring to a wire rack to continue cooling.
You can bake these without the muffin top pan. Just place dough on baking sheet, 2 inches apart and bake for 8-9 minutes...Follow the same guidelines for adding the marshmallow and chocolate as in the recipe above.
You can also use mini marshmallows to top on the cookies as well

Oh my gosh! We just got back from camping this weekend and made s’mores lots of different ways! Will have to make these for sure…they look awesome!!

June 23, 2013 8:30 pm

Where are you getting your Mallow Bits? I have checked our local Food Lion, Bi-Lo, and Wal-Mart with no luck. Thanks!

June 24, 2013 11:25 am

Found them at Walmat with the hot cocoa 😉

June 23, 2013 8:53 pm

Just…yes. The end.

June 23, 2013 9:33 pm

Seriously!! These are amazing. S’mores are summers very best fried and these just make them like 100x better!

When I saw your deep dish milky way cookies awhile back I thought to myself, “Self — you should think about getting one of those muffin top pans. These cookies look fantastic.” Now, tonight, seeing these, I know I HAVE to get one of these pans. There’s no more thinking…just DO it. These look phenomenal!

June 23, 2013 9:56 pm

Oh my word these are crazy as in I need one now…they are beautiful too!

June 23, 2013 10:13 pm


June 23, 2013 10:14 pm

I totally saw one of these pans in the store and thought why would I need to make muffin tops! Much better use of them with these cookies!

June 23, 2013 11:11 pm

Okay, LOVE these cookies. LOVE these pictures. And NEEEEEED that muffin top pan!

June 24, 2013 12:47 am

I am going to try these in my Pampered Chef Brownie Pan. Cant wait!

June 24, 2013 3:31 am

Oh, wow! I need these in my life. Love everything about them! :-)

June 24, 2013 3:59 am

These – I need them in my life asap!! (and I’m totally buying one of those pans, now!)

June 24, 2013 4:17 am

Oh man – deep dish is definitely the way to go!

June 24, 2013 7:25 am

I knew I’d find a use for those whoopie pie pans I bought last year… looking forward to making these in them, for sure! x

June 24, 2013 7:43 am

Ok… these need to happen in my kitchen

June 24, 2013 9:14 am

I’ll happily take a dozen!


One look at these Smores cookies made my mouth instantly water. I need to have these, and soon.

June 24, 2013 11:02 am

I never should have started following your blog! :) These look amazing! Have you seen the new marshmallows from Kraft? They are called stacking marshmallows or something and are basically flat rectangles…I think they would work perfectly for these.

June 24, 2013 11:06 am

I want that pan and those cookies!

June 24, 2013 11:21 am

Yes! I have a whoopie pie pan that collects dust…these are the missing link in my life! Would it be overkill to drizzle peanut butter on top?…No? Yumm!!

June 24, 2013 11:26 am

oh man, every time I stop by your site I gain a pound. Cookies look so good, I can almost taste them.

June 24, 2013 11:29 am

These look way too good! :)

June 24, 2013 12:02 pm

These are awesome!! I need them now :)

June 24, 2013 2:23 pm

Tolle Fotos, ich bin immer wieder begeistert. Vor allem wie schnell du backen kannst;)!

Süsse Grüsse aus Deutschland


June 24, 2013 2:44 pm

OhMyGAWSH… They send me over the mooooon!

I’m gonna make a batch PRONTO, in my Pampered Chef brownie pan! If you haven’t seen one of THOSE in action, come hook up with me on Facebook or Google+… You’ll flip over how awesome it is!

June 24, 2013 3:09 pm

these capture the essence of a child’s summer. Good thing I’m a big kid! Will need to pick up a muffin top pan soon.

June 24, 2013 4:06 pm

Oh man! You’re killing me! How in the world am I supposed to eat healthy when something like this hits my inbox?! This looks so intense… :)


Have mercy! These s’mores cookies look sooo scrumptious, Shelly!

June 24, 2013 6:10 pm

I have a feeling these are going to make an appearance in my kitchen soon :)

June 24, 2013 8:47 pm

Those cookies are my new love affair!

June 24, 2013 10:15 pm

I posted a deep dish cookie today!! Great minds:) I love your S’mores version! I need one now!

June 24, 2013 11:20 pm

Oh wow! I cannot wait to get me one of those deep dish cookie pans! You are AWESOME!

June 25, 2013 1:30 am

Wow, these look incredible! And seriously dangerous. Imagine pressing vanilla ice cream between two warm from the oven cookies …omg, this needs to happen in my kitchen stat!

June 25, 2013 2:49 am

I just made s’mores last Sat!
Now, I’ve gotta get a muffin-top pan…

June 25, 2013 7:36 am

How would you store these cookies since they have marshmallow on them? I am guessing that they wouldn’t freeze well either?

June 25, 2013 8:22 am

You’re a genius! Who wouldn’t love these?!

June 25, 2013 3:14 pm

Omgoodness, this looks life a magical cookie! !


Okay so your recipe comes just in time for me! I made some really awesome smore cookies last week using a recipe a friend gave me. While they tasted so good, they were not very pretty…at all. Those babies spread all across the pan and fell apart even after chilling the dough. Your cookies will be a fabulous revamp on the ones I tried! Thanks!

June 27, 2013 11:17 am

Do you think a regular muffin pan would work if I don’t fill it up all the way? Or, I have mini quiche pans that I could use to make bite sized cookies. [Yes, I have mini quiche pans but don’t want to go buy muffin top pans… 😉 ]

June 29, 2013 12:22 pm

So…somehow I missed this post. And I can’t imagine how or why fate would be so cruel as to do such a thing to me! Need.

Hi, does 350° means 350 Fahrenheit or degree Celsius?

July 5, 2013 10:24 am

I live at a higher altitude, any high altitude changes in the baking? I would love to make these!

July 5, 2013 9:13 pm

I made these for a 4th of July party yesterday and they were a HUGE hit. The only problem was that I didn’t make enough! My 5 year old rated them a 20 on a scale of 1-10. I love all your creations!

These are AWESOME! 😀 Deep dish cookies mixed with s’mores – love it! And thank you for explaining a reason why one would need to own a muffin top pan, because I certainly have never understood them until now. 😉

July 11, 2013 7:37 am

These look absolutely incredible! Can’t wait to give them a try! Thanks for a great recipe!

July 11, 2013 10:50 am

I seriously want to face plant right into all those cookies!!! What an awesome deep dish cookie!
