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. How perfect are these cookies!! I would be so tempted to pick off all the marshmallows and eat them first!

    1. That’s exactly what I did, Steph! lol

  2. I hope you are having a great lake vacation! I am heading to our cabin this weekend with 10 friends and these S’more cookies look like a perfect snack to bring along!

    1. Have a blast at the cabin Mercedes!

  3. These look incredible Sally! And so perfect too! Love this post!

  4. Ali | Gimme Some Oven says:

    These look so fun! I hope you have a good time at the lake!

  5. One of the many reasons I <3 your blog is because you appriciate and indulge my s'more addiction!
    I definitely find a big difference when I chill cookie dough.
    Gotta love a recipe that passes the soft test!
    Have a great break (you deserve it)

    1. Yes, chilling this dough is so important! I’m glad you like s’mores as much as I do. Thanks Georgie!

  6. What a neat idea! I’ll take 50! 🙂

  7. petal and plume says:

    these look all kinds of delicious! heaven to my taste buds!

  8. Caroline @ Pass the Cocoa says:

    Yum, I love this idea Sally! Gooey marshmallows are definitely the best (:

  9. Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking says:

    Sally, these cookies look incredible! What a genius twist on s’mores and a fun summery treat, I love ’em! Enjoy your little slice of paradise at the lake, and for goodness sakes, girl – stop working for a little while! 😉

  10. Ari @ Ari's Menu says:

    You had me when you rolled them in graham cracker crumbs. These, my friend, are brilliant! Definitely one of my Sally favs!

  11. The thought just came to me one day when I thought about making s’more cookies. 😉 THe double roasting marshmallows. Soooo good Amy! You can only imagine. 😉

  12. Jamie @lifelovelemons says:

    The more ways to incorporate s’mores in to my life, the better! Yum!!

  13. Maggie @ Sunnyside Up Smile says:

    I saw this post before I left to go camping but I guess I never commented on it….probably because I was getting googly eyed over the cookies because they look SO delicious lol 😉 Anyways, I had my fill of s’mores over the past few days as we made them every night and now I’m going to make these cookies to stretch out the post-camping effect as long as possible 🙂

    1. Maggie, a s’mores filled week is exactly what I’m having here on vacation, too! Sounds like you definitely need a batch of these next. 🙂

  14. I must have these asap! They look so incredible 🙂

  15. Hello Sally! I just made these and they turned out AMAZING!!!! They are absolutely perfect and they have the exact consistency I look for in a cookie! I realized once they were in the oven that it was the same recipe of your dark chocolate salted caramel cookies (which I made a while ago), so I knew they would have been a win! Thank you so much for the recipe I will definately make them again! 🙂

    1. Hey Monica! Yep, it’s the same exact recipe! But they look so different with the crinkles don’t they? I’m glad you love this recipe!

  16. Is it ok to use applesauce in replacement for butter in this recipe?

    1. No – the cookies will be more like muffin tops and crumble when you pick them up. You need fat in the dough.

  17. I’m making these right now (the dough is currently chilling in the fridge). I hope mine turn out as delicious as yours look!

  18. Hi 🙂 I have made this recipe for a few times and I absolutely ADORE it! <3 Just a quick question for you (it would help a ton if you answer): How long can the dough chill up to in the refrigerator? P.S. I'm a reader from Hong Kong, just putting it in here to let you know that we love you all the way across the globe haha

    1. I’m so happy you enjoy these cookies! You may chilly he dough (tightly covered) for up to 5 days, actually. Let it sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes before using because it will be rock hard after being the the refrigerator that long.

  19. I noticed that on a lot of your recipes it says that you can freeze the dough. Can you freeze this cookie dough?

    BTW, I love your page. I’m making my holiday cookie list now =)

    1. sure can! chill the dough as instructed, roll into balls, then freeze. Thaw in the refrigerator and then you can roll into the graham cracker crumbs and bake.

  20. Hi! Tried out this recipe for the first time. I followed your temp and time but mine came out too soft? It’s gooey. Is that how it’s supposed to be?? They taste awfully good though.

    1. I suggest baking for an extra minute or two.

  21. Hi, I was just wondering whether you had any tips for knowing when the cookies are done. I think my oven usually bakes a little faster than the recipe says, but I’m not sure.

    1. Usually when the edges of the cookies have set. I would bake them for 10 minutes total (so 8 minutes, add marshmallows, and then 2 minutes)

  22. These are awesome. I appreciate that I can consistently follow your recipes to the T and they come out & look exactly like your photo. (Now, I can’t take a photo that looks half as good as your photo.. But, at least it looks that good in real life… And, tastes delish.) 😉

  23. In. Love your all your recipes each one I try are always a hit.
    But these s’more chocolate crinkle cookies have to be my favorite they came out so soft I couldn’t stop eating them☺️.
    Really happy to have discovered your blog
    Thank you for all your great recipes.

  24. I made larger versions of these on top of half sheets of graham crackers. It helps add the crunch and ratio of a smore.

    I noticed this made me add about two more minutes in the oven since the graham cracker insulated the cookie from the pan’s heat. (I did them side-by-side with ones without graham crackers for comparison) I then added an additional few minutes in the oven on broil to toast the marshmallows and continue cooking the large cookies. Turned out nicely.

  25. May I know what kind of milk are you using?

  26. Sally I LOVE ur blog!! I really appreciate that u put ur measurements in grams as well so it can be followed to a T as someone said earlier!! 
    Question though… Can u melt the butter? I’m trying to package mine out into gift bags and hoping they will stay soft/fresh longer than a week. Any tips?

    1. Do not use melted butter- creamed butter is needed for this particular recipe. Thanks Sharlz!

  27. Katie Stanley says:

    These are fantastic! They are super cute, cooked so consistently, and taste amazing. Thanks for another fun recipe!

  28. Made these cookies for my sons for a 4th of July treat and they were a huge hit! I crushed the graham crackers in a bag rather than with a food processor, and I liked the extra texture appearance even better. These cookies are so adorable and absolutely delicious. The texture and flavor are perfect! Thanks for yet another favorite recipe from your blog! I will definitely make these again!

  29. I made these without the marshmallows and graham crackers and they were delicious chocolate cookies! Their smell is AMAZING!

  30. Just made these and they came out great!
