S’mores Cookie Cups Recipe

S’mores are my favorite summertime treat!  I don’t always love the campfire smell that comes with making s’mores, so these are the next best thing!  The graham cracker cookie cup is filled with marshmallow and topped with chocolate.  They just might be better than actual s’mores! 😉

  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 large marshmallows, cut in half
  • 2 Hershey's chocolate bars (24 chocolate pieces)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  3. In another bowl, beat the butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth.
  4. Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
  5. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  6. Drop rounded tablespoons of dough into a greased mini muffin tin.
  7. Press dough down into the muffin tin using a spoon or something round so there is a small indent in the dough.
  8. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until edges are just getting golden brown.
  9. Remove from oven and gently press a half marshmallow, sticky side down, onto each cookie.
  10. Let cool completely.
  11. Once all cookies are cooled down, preheat broiler.
  12. Place cookies back in the oven and broil for 1-2 minutes, keeping a close eye on them so they don't burn.
  13. Once marshmallows are golden brown, remove from the broiler and place a piece of chocolate on top of each cookie.

  1. Hi Barbara, Sorry these cookies didn't work out for you. The recipe only calls for 1/2 cup butter, which would be 1 stick. So if you added 2 sticks, that is double what the recipe calls for. That could have been the reason for the dough not sticking together. We had no problems with these, so the excess butter would definitely cause some issues. What a fun grandma to make cookies with your granddaughter. Sorry they weren't edible. Have a great day!
  2. Made these for a company picnic. Followed the recipe exactly. They turned out good, however, I thought that there really wasn't much "graham cracker taste" to them. Overall, I thought they looked way better than they tasted.

    Not sure I'm loving these. Quite a bit of butter in them. Biggest problems so far I couldn't get a half marshmallow to fit in the mini tin with dough. Also doesn't look like them will come out of muffin tins so not sure if I'll be able to bring these to a picnic. Very messy to make, broken ones taste really good, but not good if I can't use them for picnic.
  4. Hi Cyd. If I want to double or triple the serving size in one cooking, do I also double or triple all the ingredients? Hope to get your immediate feedback on this query. As I badly need to catch up to an upcoming event this week. Thanks a lot!
    • Hi Mark, I'm not quite sure what you mean by double or triple the serving size in one cooking. This batch can easily be doubled or tripled to make more cookies. If you wanted to make each individual cookie a little larger you will want to double the batch. Watch them closely as they cook because it will take a little longer if each cookie is bigger. We have only made this recipe as directed on the recipe. I hope this helps. Let me know if I can help in any way! Cyd (mom of the Six Sisters)
  5. Really easy and quick recipe. I doubled it and got 60 cookies. I also used regular size marshmallows cut in half which covered the entire top of the cookie. Pretty sure I would have needed mini marshmallows to have it look like yours but the marshmallow to cookie ratio was perfect the way I did it. I work in a hospice with big commercial ovens (cookies were done in about 5 minutes) that don't have a broiler so I just popped the hot cookies with the marshmallows back into the oven for 30 seconds till they puffed a little then used a blow torch to carmelize the tops before sticking a chocolate piece on each one. The patients and their families, as well as the staff, inhaled them

    Just made these cookies and they are fantastic! I only had trouble with my chocolate melting because I had the bars in the frig (My fault). I just put them back under the broiler for about 30 seconds. This cookie is divine! Thanks for sharing!

    Nice cookie idea. They do come out of the mini-muffin tin. My batch made 30 muffins. The chocolate melts and can be smoothed out. I used 1/3 marshmallows and that worked out. I would also suggest trying to put the chocolate under the marshmallows. Using back of measuring spoon or ice cream scoop worked for pushing them down. But you have to grease it. I thumb worked well.
  8. These turned out great! I followed the recipe exactly, and had no difficulty. I actually found that I could just form the dough into a cup shape. At first I was worried when they came out all puffy, because I didn't think there would be room for the marshmallow, but I just shoved the marshmallow in, and it turned out looking exactly like the picture! Thanks!
  9. i would love to make these for my sons wedding- they are having a cookie table. my question is, do you think they could be frozen ahead of time? Any ideas on what cookies would work better for freezing, as the wedding is in October and I would like to start early as to not be bombarded!! Thanks!! They look wonderful! Great idea!
    • Hi Robin, We haven't frozen these because we eat them so fast. Where you have a little time until October, you could make a batch and freeze them. Thaw after a week or so and see how they do. We aren't sure how the marshmallows will do. They may be just fine. Be sure to freeze them in a freezer bag or an airtight container. A cookie table sounds like a fun idea for the wedding. Most of our cookies freeze well. We have frozen our marshmallow brownies before and the marshmallows were fine after thawing. To be safe with these cookies, do an experimental batch! :)
  10. I made these but used mini marshmallows and chocolate chips instead -- 3 mini marshmallows, then 3-5 chocolate chips, then a couple more mini marshmallows. Topped a couple more chocolate chips on after toasting everything. Everybody loved them! I'm making these again and adding a drizzle of melted chocolate across the tops. Definitely a recipe to keep!
