Giant S’mores Cookies

I woke up on Sunday and it was August! Are you serious? Where did the summer go and how can I possibly have to return to the real world in 3 short weeks? Those of you that are regular readers of MBA may recall that I work full time as a special education teacher. So, the days of waking up at 5:30 am are just around the corner and that my friends, makes me weep a little.

Instead of drowning in my end of summer sorrows, I thought I would embrace the time we have left with a week full of s’mores! Yes, ooey, gooey s’mores recipes will be the focus of this week. I am super excited about these recipes because they are all amazingly delicious; plus, what dessert screams summer more than a s’more?

First on the list are these huge, decadent, fabulous cookies from Jenny, of Picky Palate. The minute I saw these cookies on Jenny’s site, I knew I had to make them. Not to mention, they were the perfect reason to pull my muffin pan out from storage. Yes, I have a storage area specifically designated for pans because I have an illness that requires me to spend money on any type of specialty pans that I can get my stubby fingers on!

As I said earlier, these cookies are huge and decadent were the perfect ending to an amazing meal prepared on the grill! We even got a little crazy and toasted some marshmallows to sandwich between two cookies! I hope you enjoy this perfect summer recipe as much as we did! Thanks so much to Jenny for sharing this recipe. If you haven’t been to Jenny’s site, Picky Palate, head over there and check it out, it’s drool-worthy!


Giant S'mores Cookies

August 4th, 2010

Yield: 18 large cookies


2 sticks softened butter
1 Cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla
4 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 Cups chocolate chips
3 regular size Hershey’s Chocolate Bars
3 Full Graham Crackers
5-6 Large Marshmallows cut into fourths


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place butter and sugars into a stand or electric mixer; beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla until well combined.

2. Place flour, salt and baking soda into a large bowl; mix then slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips. Mix until just combined.

3. Scoop a heaping 1/4 Cup of cookie dough into muffin top pan cups. Press down then gently press chocolate bar squares, graham cracker pieces and marshmallow slices on top of cookie dough.

4. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until edges are just turning brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan. Serve with milk and enjoy!


- This recipe can be prepared without the muffin top pan. Just flatten out your cookie dough slightly onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and press your s’mores toppings over the dough.

YUM! These cookies look absolutely delicious! Great idea with sandwiching 2 of them together with marshmallows! I don’t have one of these muffin top pans, but this sure is an excuse to run out and grab one!


The Blue-Eyed Bakers August 4, 2010 at 8:04 pm

Where has summer gone!? We’re all for jamming in as much summer this week as possible…especially with s’mores! These cookies look ridiculously delicious and amazing…with that gooey marshmallow…oh goodness.


Shelbi August 4, 2010 at 8:06 pm

HOLY COW! I am SO making these! You think they would turn out ok on a regular cookie sheet?


Lynn @ I'll Have What She's Having August 4, 2010 at 8:06 pm

Oh wow! I’ve been a S’more binge lately too. I ate half a s’more pie in just a few days. And now I want these cookies!


Tickled Red August 4, 2010 at 8:08 pm

Oh my! Whether here on on Picky Palate I {{LOVE}} these cookies…you pushed me over the edge with the toasted gooey-ness in the middle :) If I didn’t need to pack I’d be in the kitchen right now.


CookTeen August 4, 2010 at 8:34 pm

I love s’mores and well these look outrageous! Sandwiching a toasty marshmallow between two is pure s’more genius. If your looking for some s’more items to make my favorite are the S’more Candy Bars and Magic s’mores bars. The puff pastry s’mores also receive awesome reviews! (Links below, respectively)

With love and cupcakes,

OMG – I am giddy with excitement over this. I LOVE LOVE LOVE S’mores. All things S’mores! Seriously, I think your picture must be what heaven looks like!
Thank you (and Jenny) for this!


Joanne August 4, 2010 at 8:47 pm

Do you think there’s someone who can we petition to make August last longer? I’m not ready for school!!

These smores cookies are INSANE! I love a good LARGE decadent cookie.


Eliana August 4, 2010 at 9:04 pm

WOW – these look insanely good; especially the sandwiched ones with marshmallows.


Betty @ scrambled hen fruit August 4, 2010 at 9:51 pm

Two extra weeks in August would be awesome. As a fellow teacher, I feel your “summer’s almost over” pain. Where does the time go? These cookies look delicious. I may even have to invest in one of those special pans. It makes those cookies so perfectly round! Thanks for sharing, and enjoy the rest of your summer!


Sherry August 4, 2010 at 10:10 pm

I love it! I have been obsessed with s’mores as of late, so these are right up my alley!


Jenny Flake August 4, 2010 at 10:44 pm

Your cookies look absolutely beautiful!! Long live the muffin top pan! I just can’t get enough of it!! Beautiful photos :)


Kruzon August 4, 2010 at 10:49 pm

Smore cookie, I’d never thought of it. We will add this recipe to our try it list in our BKK bakery.


My Kitchen in the Rockies August 4, 2010 at 11:12 pm

I don’t even want to begin thinking about getting up at 6.00 am again pretty soon. So these cookies sound like the perfect distraction! Delicious.


Jessica August 5, 2010 at 12:33 am

Question: it would seem to me that the chocolate and marshmallow would just melt all over the cookie sheet when baking. You’re really supposed to add the chocolate/graham cracker and marshmallow BEFORE baking? I will be using a regular cookie sheet, btw.


katie August 5, 2010 at 1:52 am

These look fab and so delicious. I know the feeling of getting up at 5:30am – especially when its starting to get darker in the mornings again.


CaSaundra August 5, 2010 at 8:37 am

S’mores are definitely one of my fav parts of summer! With these cookies, I can get the taste all year long :-)


Kathy in Greendale August 5, 2010 at 9:09 am

I, too work in special education as a paraprofessional. Starting to have the “going back to school” dreams! Eek. Great recipe for the middle of winter when you want a s’more and it’s -5 degrees, winds blowing, and no way you’re going out to fire up the grill!


Evan @swEEts August 5, 2010 at 9:11 am

Holy moly those look like a cavity waiting to happen! But in a good way of course :) I love smores and anything with that much sugar has to be good :) I wish I had the space in my kitchen or apt for that matter for a storage space dedicated to baking bc lord knows I need it!


Alison August 5, 2010 at 10:46 am

I heart Picky Palate as well! You guys are pretty much the top 2 on my list when I’m looking to make something yummy! I’m never disappointed. Like everyone else, I love the idea of adding the toasted marshmallow between the 2 cookies. Extra yummy goodness!


Barbara @ VinoLuciStyle August 5, 2010 at 10:59 am

I’ve not been a convert to the muffin top pan. I honestly am at my max on storing; every trip to that cupboard become a game I’m not winning of putting things back and not having the door wedged open!

These look so good and I do love the idea of the roasted marshmallow in between two of them…even more s’morey!


Erica B. August 5, 2010 at 12:16 pm

OMG…These look beyond yummy!!! I know what I am making this weekend!


Ashley August 5, 2010 at 12:38 pm

Agh these look so insanely good!!! Smores things suck me in every time!


naomi August 5, 2010 at 1:12 pm

These look heavenly!! I love smores anything, so can’t wait to see what else you have coming this week.


sue mannel August 5, 2010 at 2:13 pm

sounds like it’s going to be camp night soon!!



Maria August 5, 2010 at 3:24 pm

If I had an oven, I would bake these right now! Amazing!


merry jennifer August 5, 2010 at 4:24 pm

My mom is a teacher, and I totally recall the anxiety she felt as summer neared the end. I hope you have a great rest of the summer days remaining. Certainly if you keep these delicious-looking cookies on hand, you’ll have no problem finishing up August with a smile on your face.


ingrid August 5, 2010 at 4:31 pm

LOL, when I first saw her baking, non muffin top things, in that pan I hurried and ordered one for myself. Just TODAY I ordered another one because one pan was enough! Love it.


melissa daams August 5, 2010 at 4:36 pm

i just bought a bag of marshmallows and i wasn’t sure what to do with them… until now :) thanks!!!


Lisa August 5, 2010 at 4:55 pm

OMG — I am in love and I haven’t even made the cookies yet. I’m always looking for fun recipes for our annual family picnic, and I just found it!

I share your cake pan addiction. I constantly monitor the Williams-Sonoma and Sur la Table Web sites looking for the latest and greatest cake pans. I have more than one large storage container of pans in my basement (not to mention candy molds, cookie molds, etc.)!

I’m thrilled that I stumbled on to your site!


Emily August 5, 2010 at 6:56 pm

These look fantastic! I also have a specialty baking pan addiction and have been thinking about getting a muffin top pan, this recipe looks like a good excuse to get one! :)


shelly (cookies and cups) August 9, 2010 at 6:45 pm

I want one of those pans!!


Jeane August 10, 2010 at 9:41 pm

Okay, so I DID go out and buy the pan. Mentioned it to my daughter and she said, “Did you buy me one, too?”… got to go back to the store.

Cookies for the weekend with the grandsons..coming up!



Nourhan August 18, 2010 at 12:36 pm

Oh my goodness, those look amazing! Question, can the marshmallows be replaced with marshmallow fluff?


Tracey August 18, 2010 at 7:52 pm

These were AWESOME, AMAZING, AND OUT OF THIS WORLD. My entire family and 10 others thought these were fantastic!


Jamie August 18, 2010 at 7:56 pm

Wooo Whooo, you have to love feedback like this! Thanks for stopping by!


Monica August 21, 2010 at 3:16 am

I baked these today and everyone loved them!! I used a regular cookie sheet and had no trouble. Summer in a cookie, love it!


Liz August 23, 2010 at 9:52 am

I made these cookies to give to my mother-in-law for her birthday and also to put out as a desert option at a summer party. They were amazing! I didn’t have enough chocolate chips so I added some peanutbutter chips too. I didn’t have a muffin top pan so I just scooped them out with my cookie scoop and then flattened them a bit and put the toppings on. I also made mine smaller I got a few dozen. I was a bit bummed that I only got to eat a few as they went so fast at the party, I guess I’ll just have to make more. Thanks so much for the recipe!


noreen May 11, 2011 at 4:27 pm

I made these cookies this afternoon and I have to sway that they were the BEST chocolate chip cookies that I have ever made! We have a hard time with cookies, since both my boys are allergic to eggs, but these did great even with using egg replacer. Thank you so much for the recipe! ♥

Reply August 10, 2011 at 5:25 pm

Noreen, what egg replacer?? I have a nephew allergic to eggs and milk, and I’m always looking for recipes to make him!


Cate July 13, 2011 at 9:51 pm

I made these cookies yesterday and used up the rest of the cookie dough today, and they are SOOO good! I have not done much baking, but s’more cookies sounded fun, so I googled them. I tried this recipe first, and I’m really happy with how they turned out. My brother and parents have tasted them and liked them. Even our puppy thought they smelled good!
I didn’t have the special pan for these so I just used a normal one and squashed the dough down flat. Then I added toppings. I like that they are thicker than the cookies I normally make, which are very thin and sometimes flattish. I can’t wait to make them again!

Reply August 10, 2011 at 5:24 pm

I’m a teacher and food blogger too!! That makes me love you even more than I already did!! IKNOWEXACTLYHOWYOUFEEL!!!!! This summer was too, too short. S’mores are my favorite, and these look deliciioouusss – will be making these soon! THANKS!


Jocelyn in oc August 10, 2011 at 5:49 pm

O.M.G. Now I know what to get at Sur La Table with my $10 off coupon. A Muffin Top pan! Seriously, I love the taste of s’mores. I like my marshmallows goldent toasty, I wonder if I can manage that?


Travel in my life August 20, 2011 at 5:46 am

I love s’mores and well these look outrageous! Sandwiching a toasty marshmallow between two is pure s’more genius :)


Ashley @ The Latest Find January 29, 2012 at 8:00 am

These look absolutely amazing! I love marshmallows so I can’t wait to try these… Featured this recipe as a latest find for cookie recipes at The Latest Find! All of your desserts look wonderful!! =)


elisa February 2, 2012 at 3:54 pm

hi there-how do you think these would work in a whoopie pan?


Lisa June 4, 2012 at 4:04 pm

I made these this weekend and they turned out fabulous! Thank you for sharing!


Aurelia June 19, 2012 at 7:00 am

OMG, they look fantastic! And sinful. 😉


Megan @ Our Pinteresting Family August 14, 2014 at 8:18 am

WOW! These look amazing. I don’t think there is a recipe you share that I’m not drooling over. :)


Jamie August 14, 2014 at 9:20 am

I’m glad you are enjoying the recipes. Thanks so much for stopping by.



rekha February 26, 2015 at 8:26 pm

Hi lts looks really yummy..I m a vegetarian pls. Let me know what can I use instead of egg


Jamie March 3, 2015 at 7:49 pm

You could try substituting 1/3 cup of applesauce for each egg. I hope this helps.
