These S’mores Cookies include marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate chunks. They remind you of family fun around a campfire without the smoke.
My family and I enjoy spending time together in our Motor Home. My oldest daughter is in her third year of medical school. She is studying to be a doctor. My oldest son is studying pre-med in college. Every weekend that we can get together, we spend time in our RV. It has indeed been the best purchase. We often camp close to our children who are in college or medical school. When they have time away from studying or the hospital, they love to visit. It has worked out so well, and everyone enjoys spending a day or two together. When we camp, we take walks together, play games outside together, and even sit around a campfire in the evenings roasting marshmallows to make delicious S’mores.
When My Family Is Home Together
Everyone, including myself, is on the computer checking email, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and more. My husband and I saved for this RV for a very long time. We just wish we could have purchased an RV earlier in life after seeing how it is bringing our family closer together.
I look forward to writing more about our RV, Campsites, and places to visit on my travel blog, Our American Travels.
How Did I Come Up With These S’mores Cookies?
I love baking with my kids, especially Caleb, my special needs son, and Diana, my youngest daughter. Recently, they were telling me how much fun it is to roast marshmallows and make S’mores while camping. I decided to try adding Chocolate Chunks, Marshmallows, and Graham Crackers to my chocolate chip cookie dough to make S’mores Cookies. I was hoping they would enjoy this activity, and it would remind them of camping.
My two helpers were excited, and I was thrilled the S’mores Cookies turned out as one of my favorite cookies ever. The graham crackers give these cookies crunch. The marshmallow makes them chewy when it hardens. By adding chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips, you get a massive chunk of chocolate in every bite. We had a great time baking and making memories in the kitchen. These S’mores Cookies were terrific.

Baking Cookie Tips
- Use butter and eggs at room temperature. You should be able to leave a fingerprint easily in the butter.
- Whip the butter, shortening, and sugars until light and fluffy.
- Do not over mix the flour!
- Mix in the dry ingredients just until you do not see any powder, and everything is incorporated.
- Use parchment paper – I love parchment paper when baking. Once you remove the cookies from the oven, just slide the parchment paper off the baking sheet. Taking them off the baking pan will allow them to cool.
- Use an ice cream scoop when scooping out your cookies. This way, they will all be the same size and will bake evenly.
Freezing Cookie Dough
Scoop them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can put the cookies closer together on the baking sheet when freezing them than when you are baking them. If you scoop the cookie dough out first and then freeze it, you do not have a problem with the dough being as hard as a rock, and you cannot scoop it out of a container. After scooping out the cookie dough, place the baking pan in the freezer until they are frozen. Place frozen cookies into large freezer zip lock bags and store them in the freezer. When frozen, they do not spread out as much.
- Do not overcook your cookies. Once you remove the cookies from the oven, they will continue to bake.
