Smores are the total bomb when it comes to cooling temperatures and changing leaves, would you agree? Although I’m a total fan of the traditional smore, I love eating and making them into this handsdown delicious Smores Cookie version!
Join me on my quest to make this a quick go-to version where no campfire is required! All that is needed for that smoky crusty taste is a kitchen torch. Wonderfully, it makes a great replacement for the fire crusty black delight.
This amazing cookie is a chocolate dream come true and one that you will love sharing with everyone you know!
Chocolate, yes the sidekick is the foundation for the cookie. I take one of my favorite chocolate cookie recipes and turn it upside down adding all the standard components. However, I add just a touch of bread flour to bring in some added chewiness.
Chocolate is the centerpiece of this cookie and its so ooey-gooey chewy delicious. Perfect base for the rest of the smores components!
The chocolate cookie gets baked off with graham cracker crumbs that turn a nice golden color give a crunchy texture.
Toasted marshmallow is at the center of the action. Once the cookies are removed from the oven, a marshmallow is placed a on top and roasted with a kitchen torch to get that signature look.
Finally, to seal the deal, this delight gets covered with a chocolate drizzle that hardens for another special crunch. Optional, of course.
Smore’s Cookie Components
Can’t fight tradition here….
- Graham crackers
Chocolate: Comes in the form of the cookie and the drizzle on top.
Marshmallow: Quick shortcut in using the large marshmallows from the store that sit nicely on top.
Graham Crackers: These are crushed to crumbs and are sprinkled on top of the cookie.
I hope you enjoy these for your next fall gathering, they go perfectly with a cup of cocoa, a crisp fall night, especially around a campfire or fire pit.

Delicious chocolate cookie with a burnt marshmallow center topped with crushed graham cracker crumbs and a drizzle of chocolate for a fantastic smore experience!
- Prep Time: 20 minutes
- Cook Time: 9 minutes
- Total Time: 29 minutes
- Yield: 2 dozen 1x
- 10 TBS unsalted butter (softened)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp coffee flavoring or vanilla
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup bread flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (crushed yourself or store bought graham cracker crumbs)
- 12 large marshmallows (cut in half and flattened slightly)
- 1/2 cup chocolate bark (melted)
- Preheat oven to 350 and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl with a paddle attachment, cream the butter with the sugar till smooth and creamy. Add in the egg and coffee flavoring/vanilla. Add in the dry ingredients and mix till a combined dough is formed.
- With a small cookie scoop, scoop out the mixture and place on baking sheet about 2″ apart. Sprinkle each cookie with graham cracker crumbs. These will get nice and toasty as they bake.
Bake about 9 minutes being careful not to overbake.
- Remove from the oven and immediately place a flattened marshmallow gently on top of the cookie. The heat from the cookie will set the marshmallow. Cool completely.
With a kitchen torch, lightly flame each marshmallow just enough to give it a lightly golden or blackened color.
Microwave the chocolate bark and drizzle over each cookie and allow to set.
Cookies can be frozen. Allow to cool completely and place in a freezer container in layers separated by parchment paper to prevent from sticking.
Depending on the size of your cookie scoop, quantities will vary.
