Cookies: S’more Sandwich Cookies

Original recipe:

It continues to be summer in California, so that means…more recipes associated with marshmallows! This time, actual marshmallows, and not the marshmallow cream that makes a giant mess.

The ingredients are fairly simple for this recipe. Below are the things you’ll need:

  • softened butter
  • granulated sugar
  • brown sugar
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 2% milk
  • vanilla extract
  • all-purpose flour
  • graham cracker crumbs
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • ground cinnamon
  • semisweet chocolate chips
  • large marshmallows
Everything you’ll need for this recipe.

The first thing I’d recommend doing is making the graham cracker crumbs. If you can’t find them at the grocery store, one small package of graham crackers chopped up makes exactly the amount you’ll need.

This will do.

After the graham crackers are ready, mix up your granulated sugar and your brown sugar. When a recipe calls for both types of sugar, make sure you whisk them together before adding them to the stand mixer with the butter.

Throw in your mixed sugar with the butter into your stand mixer and turn it on. After a couple of minutes, turn it off and mix with a spatula to ensure the consistency.

Next, add the room temperature egg, milk, and vanilla to the mix.

Not sure why milk, but oh well.

After mixing everything up, you’ll get this:

It doesn’t look very appetizing, I know…

After those are mixed up, it’s time to get the dry ingredients together. In a bowl, combine the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and whisk it together.

In the baking world, 1/8 teaspoon of anything is considered “a pinch”.
Combined and ready for action!

Slowly pour the dry ingredients into the stand mixer at a low speed.

Don’t taste test it yet!

Next, add your semi-sweet chocolate chips to the mix, and let it stir for a couple of minutes.

Now you can taste test!

After the dough is ready, preheat the oven to 375F and line your cookie sheets with parchment paper for easy cleanup afterwards.

Silicone baking mats are also acceptable, but not until you fully run out of parchment paper.

For this recipe, we once again call upon our trusty 1tbsp cookie scoop!

Best baking investment I’ve made in recent times.

Scoop balls of dough about 2″ apart from each other on the cookie sheet.

Close enough.

I’d recommend baking about 15 cookies at a time, as putting more will cause the cookies to stick together in baking.

On the left: what you should do. On the right: what you shouldn’t do.

Bake each sheet for about 12 minutes, assuming you’re using an aluminum sheet.

I taste tested some…

Next comes the annoying part: making the sandwiches. What you need to do is take half the cookies, put them on a place, turn them upside down, place a marshmallow on them, microwave for about 10-15 seconds, and squish them together.

When you’re done, you’ll have this:

These are a lot more manageable than those other cookies with the marshmallow cream.
The utter majesty that is…the s’more sandwich cookie.

Overall, this is a pretty easy recipe to make, but there is some prep required. You’ll need an egg at room temperature, and you’ll also need the graham cracker crumbs. You might need to make your own, as I can’t seem to find them anywhere in town. Also, I’m not sure why the recipe calls for 2% milk, so you probably could use any milk you desire.

The cookies are pretty much chocolate chip cookies, so you don’t have to follow this recipe to a “T” if you want to make these. You could use the chocolate chip cookie recipe on the package of semi-sweet morsels honestly.


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature

  • 1-1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs (one individually wrapped package)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (one package of 12oz semi-sweet morsels)
  • 24 to 28 large marshmallows


  1. Take your package of graham cracker crumbs and empty them into a large freezer bag. Using a roller, crush the crackers into crumbs. Set aside.
  2. Take your butter and drop it into your stand mixer.

  4. Set the stand mixer to medium low and stir for a minute. Using a spatula, mix it around to ensure the consistency.
  5. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla, and mix for a while longer.
  6. Whisk together the graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  7. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the stand mixer.
  8. Once the dry ingredients are mixed in, add in the semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  9. Preheat the oven to 375F
  10. Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  11. Using your 1tbsp scoop, place 15 balls on your parchment paper lined cookied sheet spaced about 2″ apart.
