S’mores Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today’s cookie recipe is a knock-your-socks-off kinda cookie. ANNNND I’m annoyed at myself because last week on August 10th it was National Smores Day and I totally missed posting this recipe, which was my plan…because I don’t know if you know this, but August 10th, while being National Smores day is ALSO my birthday!!

But life happened, aka I was lazy, and I forgot to get this out into the internet in time. BUT I know you guys will all forgive me because this is still a bomb cookie recipe for all the days of the year, AND we all know that no one really pays attention to National Food Holidays except for bloggers. Guilty.

Smores Stuffed Cookie Recipe

S’mores Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies are a Gooey Dream Come True!

I have a few pretty great smores recipes on my site. I mean, you can’t go wrong with the combination of graham crackers, milk chocolate, and marshmallows. I actually have a Smores Cookie recipe here on my site, that I made in a muffin top pan to make them “deep dish”. BUT you totally don’t need that pan to make the cookies, and I actually included a version of them in my book without the pan as well. They are seriously one of the most beloved cookie recipes in my book! AND I have a DIRTY Smores Cookie recipe too, which is a cookie rolled in graham cracker crumbs giving it a “dirty” appearance. It’s a super fun recipe too.

BUT I wanted to take the whole smores cookie idea to the next level…by stuffing a smore INTO a cookie. I MEAN RIGHT!? And I will tell you, it was a definite success.

How To Make Smores Stuffed Cookies

How To Make S’mores Stuffed Cookies

Obviously I have a love for stuffing cookies. I’ve got some great stuffed cookie recipes here on my site, and I have a whole working list of new ones to try. They’re easy to do once you have a great, thick base cookie recipe to play with!

The base chocolate chip cookie recipe I used here is thick enough to make sure an entire prepared smore will stay inside, which is the trick. The right ratio of butter to sugar to flour and you can stuff pretty much anything inside!

Step 1: Creating the S’mores

What you will need to do for this recipe is prepare mini smores first as shown above. You will need:

  1. Graham Crackers. You’ll just need a small square, so the way to go about this, is to break a sheet of graham crackers according to the perforation. This will give you 4 rectangles. Then carefully break each rectangle in half again.
  2. Milk Chocolate Bar. I used Hershey’s because that’s quintessential “smores” for me. Break each bar into 12 rectangles of chocolate and place one piece of chocolate on top of half of the graham squares.
  3. Marshmallows. Use the regular sized marshmallows if you can here. Cut each one in half. If you only have minis, you can use 2 minis in place of half of the one regular. I just find they stay together better and create a gooier cookie if you cut the regular size in half.

Once you’ve created all your smores, set them aside and make your cookie dough!

Step 2: Stuffing and Baking the Cookies

  1. To assemble the cookies you will see in the second image above that I scooped out 2 portions of cookie dough using a medium cookie scoop.
  2. Flatten each portion into a flat, circular disk.
  3. Place the smore on top of one of the disks, and place the other disk on top.
  4. Now for the cookie dough around the smore, careful to make sure it’s completely sealed.
  5. Place the stuffed dough balls onto a parchment lined baking sheet about 2-3 inches apart, to give room for spreading.

Smores Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

When you bake the cookies, the marshmallow might ooze out a little bit or peak through, as shown, This is ok, and will most likely happen! Just do your best to make sure the smore is sealed inside the cookie dough.

What Variations Can You Make To These S’mores Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies?

So glad you asked! haha! Here are a few ideas to switch these up a little bit…

  • Use milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet chips to make them extra sweet!
  • Instead of milk chocolate on the inside of the smore, you can use dark chocolate!
  • Switch out the chocolate bar entirely and use other types of candy like a mini peanut butter cup, a Rolo, or even a mini Snickers!

Can You Freeze S’mores Stuffed Cookies?

Yes you can, but of course without reheating these cookies you will lose the gooey-ness of the marshmallow! And if you have a lot of marshmallow exposed after baking, it can get very chewy if frozen.

And yes, you CAN freeze the dough balls before baking them and they should be fine (again, as long as the smore is completely sealed inside), although I never recommend refrigerating or freezing marshmallows if you’re looking for the best marshmallow experience. Marshmallows, in my opinion should only be stored at room temperature.

Description:

S’mores Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies are deliciously soft, thick cookies with graham crackers, milk chocolate, and a gooey marshmallow baked right inside! Two of my favorite desserts in one easy cookie recipe!


Ingredients:

  • 12 marshmallows
  • 2 Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars
  • 6 full graham crackers, broken (or cut) into 24 square pieces
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, plus 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. To make smores, cut each marshmallow in half. Break each chocolate bar into 12 pieces. Break or cut your graham cracker in half, then break them in half again using the perforated lines. Now break each rectangle in half carefully. If they are not exact, this is fine, as they are going inside the cookie! Now form your smores ingredients into 12 miniature smores. Set aside.
  3. To make the cookie dough, mix the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add in the egg, the egg yolk, vanilla, baking soda, and salt, mixing for 1 minute until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  4. Turn the mixer to low and add in the flour, mixing until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips until evenly incorporated.
  5. Using a medium (2- tablespoon) cookie scoop, portion out the dough. Divide the dough scoop into 2 halves. Flatten each into a flat circle. Place a prepared smore on top of one of the circles. Place the other circle on top of the smore and gently wrap the dough around the smore, making sure to seal it inside.
  6. Place the cookie dough balls onto the baking sheet 2- inches apart and bake for 9 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the tops are just set.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes:

Store airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Question on oven heat. What impact does baking at 375 have vs 350?

I made these today and loved them. I halved the recipe and also used marshmallow creme and chocolate chips for the mini s’mores. I should have made smaller cookies instead of just halving the recipe bc my cookies are huge but so gooey and delicious.

Hii!! I loved this recipe, the only thing is I don’t know why my marshmallows kind of evaporate instead of staying just kind of melted.

Hey, due to the current lockdown, I don’t have the graham crackers or the chocolate chips..is there a way to make these without those two. I do have digestive biscuits, nutella and kisses chocolates, if that helps.

Holy Smokes – these were DELICIOUS!!! You’re right about the dough – it has a bit heavier consistency than the “toll house cookie recipe”- but cooks up literally perfect! These are big cookies. My kids LOVED these!

How do these cookies taste after sitting for a few days. I’m participating in a cookie exchange and need to make these in advance due to other evening engagements.

This looks AMAZING! Do you think that you could use marshmallow cream, instead of marshmallows?

August 15, 2019 10:23 am

What a fun, creative cookie recipe, Shelly! Love that ooey, gooey center!

Happy Birthday to one of my favorite bakers?. I was telling my friend Saturday if I send you any of Shelly’s recipes they are amazing. Hope you had a wonderful birthday?? Now we have two things in common a passion for baking and birthdays?. Sadly for me but feeling honored, my brothers funeral was last Saturday. Blindsided with an aggressive cancer and rare one at that two months ago. The pain is indescribable. But I feel blessed to have shared my day with him…and that of our dad. It would have been his 97 Saturday. I cannot wait to make… Read more »

These look amazing! Hope you had a great birthday. Any way to get a picture of what a sealed pre-baked cookie looks like? Having a hard time imagining what that would look like as the inside smores look so huge (yummy, but huge). Thanks for a great recipe, can’t wait to try it.

Thanks!
