We’re headed for the lake tomorrow. Woohoo, week long vacation!

The house Kevin’s family rented is enormous. Complete with a pool table, hot tub, grill, enormous kitchen, and a fire pit. For s’mores! Lots and lots of s’mores to be had. I’m in charge of bringing all of the s’more necessities (are you surprised?), and I may have bought a little too much…

Wait. Is there such a thing as “too much” s’mores?!

With s’mores on my mind this week as I packed for the lake, I knew I had to create a new cookie reminiscent of everyone’s favorite campfire treat. You have a chocolate cookie, rolled in graham cracker crumbs, and topped with marshmallows. S’more-rific.

Did you know? Next Saturday is National S’mores Day!

AND the day after Kevin’s birthday. Clearly, I’m marrying the right man.

Making these crinkle cookies is actually quite easy. I used my favorite basic chocolate cookie recipe. You know the one, you may have used it before in this cookie recipe, this one, and this one! (<– you need to make those!)

The cookie dough is made from the usual cookie suspects: flour, butter, sugars, leavener, cocoa powder, and an egg. I add milk to the cookie dough right at the end because the dough is quite thick without it. The milk also helps the cookies spread in the oven.

The most important part about this chocolate cookie recipe? You must chill the cookie dough. The cookie dough is very sticky. The longer you chill the dough, the less sticky it will be – making it much easier to handle in the next step (rolling!). I chilled mine for exactly 2 hours.

Here comes the fun part. Take a ball of cookie dough, roll it up, and then roll it into crushed graham crackers. You’ll only need about 3-4 full sheet graham crackers. Throw them in the blender or food processor and grind into crumbs.

Roll those cookie dough balls and coat them very well in the graham crackers.

Now, bake those cookies. They take only about 11-12 minutes in the oven total. But, you’ll remove them from the oven after 10 minutes. At that time, you will press a few marshmallows on top and then put them back into the oven for 1-2 additional minutes.

I cut the miniature marshmallows in half and added 3-4 pieces on top of each cookie.

The additional 1-2 minutes in the oven will allow the marshmallows to slightly melt and stick to the cookies. And look extra gooey on top. Is there anything better than gooey marshmallow?

Yes, on top of s’more cookies.

I love how cute these cookies turned out – look at all of those pretty chocolate crinkles!

Kevin brought a few of these leftover cookies to the dog park and Jude’s friends’ parents loved them! They said that the inside of the cookies tastes like brownies. And you know what? They do! Fudgy, chewy brownie-like cookies with all of the s’more goodness you love. Brownies, cookies, and s’mores all in one. I am in love with these cookies!

Today’s cookies stay SO soft, even after day 1. I call that the “soft test” – in fact, they stay soft for 7 whole days in your cookie jar. But trust me, these crinkle cookies will not last that long! You won’t be able to stop at one. These *may* even be better than a real s’more…

  • Total Time: 3 hours
  • Yield: 20-22 cookies
  • Category: Cookies
  • Method: Baking

A soft and brownie-like chocolate crinkle cookie, rolled into graham cracker crumbs and topped with melty marshmallows.


  • 1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  • 2/3 cup (56g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100g) packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons (30ml) milk
  • 1/2 cup (50g) miniature marshmallows, cut in half
  • 4 full-sheet graham crackers, ground into fine crumbs


  1. Whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar together in a large bowl on medium speed until creamed, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  3. With the mixer running on low, slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined. Add the milk. The dough will be heavy and sticky. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours and up to 3-4 days.
  4. Take the dough out of the refrigerator and allow to slightly soften at room temperature for 10 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  5. Pour graham cracker crumbs into a bowl. Take 1.5 Tablespoons of chilled dough and roll into a ball. Roll each cookie dough ball into the graham cracker crumbs. Repeat with the rest of the cookie dough. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and press 3-4 pieces of marshmallow on top of each cookie. Return to the oven for another 1-2 minutes. Remove from the oven. Cookies will appear undone and very soft. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Makes 20-22 cookies. Cookies stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 7 days.

  1. Sally, these look absolutely incredible!! Can’t wait to try these..:)

  2. Nora @ Buttercream Fanatic says:

    So creative! I think something must be in the water (oh, yeah…summer!) because I’ve seen so many interpretations of s’mores on blogs lately (Including my own). Love your take on them!

    1. I love anything and everything s’mores!

  3. oh my god sally, you have to stop this, i’m getting too fat! also, it’s hard to translate it all to swedish and i really want to bake EVERYTHING on your blog ’cause it looks so delicious!

    1. Thanks so much Pernilla!

  4. Averie @ Averie Cooks says:

    I love smores cookies and made some last month but used my trust cornstarch/choc chip cookie dough dough, and then added the m’mallows with the batter and the graham cracker crumbs also took place of the flour. I love how you rolled the cookies in GC crumbs. With dough as dark and thick as yours, I am sure you didn’t need to bulk it up with adding GCC’s to the batter. Genius to just roll and dredge thru!

    And thanks for the remidner about this dough. I do love fudgy cookies but the choc CI recipe we both have made is too many bowls, and too often, choc cookies are just so thick and dense, and dry-ish and crumbly. Yours are always perfect.

    Have fun on vacation. YOU DESERVE IT! Wish we were both on vacay in the same destination 🙂

    1. I love this chocolate cookie recipe. So much easier than the CI recipe (which is still amazing of course!). I can’t wait to get away! Hope you are loving every second in aruba!

  5. Alexis @ Hummusapien says:

    There is definitely no such thing as too much s’mores. These are like the best of both cookie and s’mores worlds! So yum. Have fun on vaca!

    1. Thanks so much Alexis!!

  6. Eva @ Eva Bakes says:

    Those cookie dough balls look like truffles!! Ooh, it sounds like another awesome idea… S’mores truffles, perhaps? 🙂

    1. You’re right! They do resemble truffles. 🙂

  7. Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

    I love it! What a great idea! Your cookies look incredible! I am on a major smores kick lately!!

  8. Pamela @ Brooklyn Farm Girl says:

    Those graham cracker crumbs are really throwing me into a magic happy world with these cookies! Yum!

  9. I love that you used a chocolate cookie!! I have not seen one chocolate s’more cookie all summer, but then you took it a step further and rolled the dough in graham cracker crumbs! Wow, that is genius and so unique!

    Have fun on vacation with your family at the lake. Sounds like such a fun time and girl you deserve it!

    1. I knew I had to use a chocolate cookie base. I see s’more cookies a lot but not with chocolate cookies! Thanks Tieghan, hope you’re having a great weekend!

  10. I love chocolate crinkle cookies, and I love how you dipped them in graham crumbs and made them s’mores style! They look delicious, and no, there’s no such thing as too many s’mores. Have fun at the lake!

  17. Eve ( Ideally Sweet ) says:

  26. Oh yum, Sally! What a great idea to roll the cookies in graham cracker crumbs! I love the way that looks and surely tastes. No s’mores for me this summer…we completely forgot about them on vacation in the Outer Banks. Seems like we might be overdue for a batch of these cookies to fill the void!

    1. Jess, I hope you had a blast in the outer banks! And yes, you should definitely make these cookies to get your s’mores fix 🙂

  27. Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious says:

  30. These are so lovely! I love the crackly surface, such a beautiful take on s’mores! It’s still freezing cold campfire weather over here in Australia (well, ‘freezing’ by Aussie standards!) so I’m loving the idea of these cookies with a mug of hot cocoa. Mmm 🙂 Have a wonderful time away Sally… sounds like such a gorgeous location! xx

    1. hot cocoa + these cookies – sounds amazing!
