Can you freeze s’mores cookie recipe?

Yes, once the cookies cool down completely, place them in a sealed freezer bag for up to 1 month. When you are ready to enjoy them, remove from freeze and let it thaw at room temperature and dig in.

You can also free cookie dough balls. Place them on a cookie tray, lined with wax paper and freeze for about 1 hour. Then, remove the frozen cookie balls from the tray and transfer them to a sealed freezer bag for up to 1 month. When you are ready to bake, place them on a cookie tray, lined with parchment paper and bake until firm along the edges and slightly soft in the center. You will need to bake for an additional 2-3 minutes since frozen cookie dough takes longer to bake.

Even better than Smores girl scout cookies and Pizza Hut S’mores cookies!

The recipe below beats both of those, in terms of flavor and texture. The Pizza Hut one is a giant chocolate chip cookie that’s topped off with mini marshmallow, graham cracker pieces and chocolate chunks. It comes warm and is super ooey gooey. The other one is a classic. It’s actually a graham cracker sandwich cookie with creamy chocolate and marshmallowy filling.

Smores Cookie Recipe with Graham Crackers, Marshmallows, Chocolate Chips

Variations

  • S’mores cookie bars- Spread the cookie dough in a greased and floured 9 inch square pan. Bake until bars are almost done and then remove from oven and remove from oven and quickly push mini marshmallows and graham cracker pieces on top. Broil for 1-2 minutes and enjoy. When it cools down, slice square bars.
  • Smores cookie sandwiches- By filling them with Marshmallow Frosting. Roll the sides of the cookies in tiny marshmallow bits or mini chocolate chips so that they stick to the icing. It will look pretty and and become even more tasty.
  • Giant smores cookie or Skillet cookie– Spread the the chocolate chip cookie dough in an 8 inch round pan or skillet. Bake until edges are firm and center is slightly soft. Remove from oven and quickly push mini marshmallows and graham cracker pieces on top. Broil for 1-2 minutes and enjoy.
  • Dip in melted chocolate– After cookies have cooled down completely, dip them halfway in melted chocolate (white, dark or milk). Sprinkle mini chocolate chips and tiny marshmallow bits on chocolate before it sets.

Tips and Techniques

  • All ingredients must be at room temperature– That’s because they blend together smoothly and evenly.
  • Chill cookie dough– Because it makes it easier to handle and form balls and also prevents cookies from spreading too much during baking.
  • What chocolate to use? Use semisweet chocolate chips because it helps balance the sweetness of these cookies. You can also use dark or milk chocolate. You can even use chocolate chunks or chopped up Hershey’s chocolate bars. It’s truly your choice.
  • What marshmallows to use? Use mini marshmallows, if you are topping the cookies, halfway during baking, like I did. However, if you want to mix marshmallows in the dough, you must use marshmallow bits (those really tiny marshmallows). Mix in 1/4 cup marshmallow bits.
  • What cake mix flavor to use? For maximum chocolate flavor, use Devil’s food cake mix or chocolate cake mix. However, if you want a milder chocolate flavor, use a yellow cake mix.
  • Do not add mini marshmallows in the cookie dough– Because the marshmallows expand during baking and when you remove them from the oven, they cool down and shrink. This leaves behind an empty, hollow shell, which looks very odd and unattractive.
  • Don’t over-mix the cookie dough– Because that yields very tough cookies. Mix until just combined, even if there are a few lumps.
  • Adjust amount of chocolate chips, marshmallows, crushed graham crackers– This is a personal preference. Add more or less of whatever you like or dislike.
  • Crushed graham crackers vs. Graham cracker crumbs- Both are used in this recipe and should not be omitted or replaced with anything else. For crushed graham crackers, roughly break up a few crackers. For crumbs, you can buy a box from stores or make it at home by running a few graham crackers in a food processor.

Ingredients

  • 2 Eggs Large
  • 1/3 cup Oil
  • 1 box Chocolate cake mix
  • 1/4 cup Graham cracker crumbs
  • 3/4 cups Chocolate chips Semisweet
  • 1/2 cup Crushed graham crackers For topping
  • 1 cup Mini marshmallows For topping
  • 1/3 cup Melted chocolate For drizzling

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, add eggs and oil and mix until smooth.

  2. Add chocolate cake mix, graham cracker crumbs and mix until combined.

  3. Mix in chocolate chips.

  4. Cover bowl and chill cookie dough in the fridge for 15-20 minutes to make it easier to handle.

  5. Scoop out small portions of the dough and make little balls.

  6. Place them on a cookie tray, lined with parchment paper.

  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until the edges are firm but center is slightly soft.

  8. Remove from oven and quickly push some crushed graham crackers and some marshmallows on top of each cookie. 

  9. Transfer cookie tray back to the oven and broil for 1 minute or until marshmallows get a little puffy. Many times, I skip this step. I don’t like a sticky messy cookie and broiling for too long can sometimes do that. I also feel that the heat from the cookies (as they are cooling), is usually enough to soften the marshmallows and make them as ooey gooey as I like and broiling is unnecessary. It’s up to you and how ooey gooey you like your marshmallows. 

  10. Allow the cookies to cool down.

  11. Drizzle melted chocolate on top of each cookie. 

  12. Let it set and enjoy!
