Gooey Stuffed Smores Cookie

These stuffed Smores Cookies were probably the most popular, most requested and always the first to sell out at Cookie Chew. I may be biased but they were pretty awesome and thankfully for me the easiest stuffed cookies to make.

Smores Cookies The hardest part about making stuffed cookies and owning a stuffed cookie company is the additional effort involved in making the fillings to stuff the cookies with.  So many times I would wish I could just mix up a batch, plop them on a cookie sheet and presto cookies ready for sale! But nope I had make the stinkin fillings & freeze them until I could actually bake the cookies.  The effort was well worth it but it can definitely be a process.  So when the popularity of the smores took off I couldn’t be happier since the only effort needed to make the fillings for these cookies is going to the store and buying marshmallows! Score!

Smores Cookies

These smores cookies have all the elements of the classic campfire favorite all wrapped up in a stuffed cookie.  The cookie itself is a pretty basic chewy brown sugar graham cracker chocolate chip cookie but the ooey gooey marshmallow inside is what puts this cookie on the top of my list of favs!

Smores Cookies

Here are some tips to keep in mind when making these cookies.

1.) Roll the large marshmallows into little balls to keep centered in the cookie as much as possible.

2.) Make sure none of the marshmallow is showing when you wrap the cookie dough around it.  If there is any marshmallow that is not covered by the cookie dough, it will ooze out and be all over the pan instead of inside the cookie.
3.) I typically add a little extra dough to the bottom of the cookie too so when it bakes, the chances of marshmallow oozing out of the bottom and sticking to the pan is minimized.
4.) And as always, all the rules on how to make chewy cookies applies, so make sure you soften the butter, refrigerate the dough & under-bake the cookie.

Easy Gooey Stuffed Smores Cookie


  • 1 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter (Softened)
  • 1 cup White Sugar
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 18oz Chocolate Chips
  • 20-24 Large Marshmallows (If you only have mini marshmallows, take about 8-9 and roll into a ball to stuff inside the cookie)


Step 1
Cream the softened butter, sugar & brown sugar in a stand mixer. Add the eggs in one at a time. Add the vanilla and mix.
Step 2
In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking soda & salt. Add the graham cracker crumbs and mix together.
Step 3
Add the flour and graham cracker crumb to the wet ingredients in about 3 increments, scrapping the bowl down in between. Mix until combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix all together until combined.
Step 4
Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes. While refrigerating the dough, preheat the oven to 375. And roll your large marshmallows into a ball. You will need about 20-24 marshmallows.
Step 5
Line cookie baking sheets with parchment paper. Using an ice cream scoop scooper size, scoop out a portion of cookie dough. Flatten the dough in your hand and put the rolled marshmallow into the dough. Wrap the cookie dough around the marshmallow and place about 2-3 inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Step 6
Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, rotating halfway in between. Let cool 5-8 minutes.


  1. Hi Liz,
    Do you know if I can freeze this cookies and if yes, how do I reheat them?
    I want to bake them tomorrow and serve by the end of may.

  2. Hello! I’m interested to make this as I have some marshmallows lying on my kitchen counter. But I have a question, do I bake the cookie dough ball-shaped? Do I need to flatten them on the pan? Or do I just leave them ball-shaped and they will flatten by their own, resulting in flat round cookies just like presented in your pictures? Because when I make cookies, I always flatten them out with a spoon, but they’re cookies without fillings. Thank you for your help!

  3. Hi Liz,

    I just want you to know that I tried this and boom! My sister and hubby liked it 🙂
    I baked for my daughter’s christmas giveaways to her classmates and teacher. I can send you a photo. I’m now planning to bake again for my Godparents 🙂

    I have a question:
    Is it okay to prepare the dough a night before I bake it?

    If I only have so much time, I want to try all your recipes.

    Thanks sharing!

    • Hi naden! Thanks for your comment and YES!! I actually typically recommend refrigerating the dough overnight before you bake. It gives the cookie a much deeper and richer flavor. I am so happy these cookies have been a hit for you! They are my faves! I would love a photo too! Please send!

  4. Hi! I was wondering how many cookies this recipe makes? Thanks!

    • Hi Lauren! You will probably get about 20-24 cookies out of this recipe depending on how big you make the cookies.

  5. Love it!! I’m an event planner and am always looking for fun and tasty new things to add to my spread! Thanks for sharing!

    • I actually used to always make these cookies for events and they were always the biggest hit! Definitely a fan favorite! You are so welcome!

  6. Hi! I will definitely try this…I will bake with my 4 yo daughter. looks yummy!
    I believe she will love this.

    By the way, what is the shelf life for this cookie?


    • Hi Naden! This is a great cookie to make with kids! Because this cookie is so soft & chewy it has a fairly decent shelf life, at room temperature it should last you 4-5 days and if you freeze them they will last 3-4 months. I typically don’t like refrigerating cookies because it tends to dry them out. If you freeze them, you can pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds and they come out tasting incredibly delicious!

      • Thanks CookieLiz!

        God bless you!

  7. So yummy! I turned them into cup-cookies by making the dough without the chips, putting a tablespoon into a mini muffin pan, and then sprinkling mini marshmallows and chocolate chips on top. The marshmallows even got a bit toasty! I only made half a batch of dough and had enough for 48 little cookies.

    • Thats so great Heather!!! I LOVE that idea! So smart halving the dough..glad they turned out well. It’s a big batch 🙂

  8. Please list a pinterest link as I can’t pin this. Thanks

  9. I didn’t know you were a San Diego local AND I didn’t know you had a cookie business. I used to go to the Hillcrest farmers market all the time (somewhat less in recent years) but I swear I have seen you at it! Way back when! Anyway, these cookies look amazing. I have a smores cookie on my site and get around the (reader complaints with oozing marshmallows) by using the Kraft bits. But REAL marshmallows are way better!

    • Hi Averie! Yea I owned Cookie Chew for years and did SOOO many farmer’s markets! 🙂 I only did Hillcrest once in a while as a sub because it was so hard to get in to but you may have a sampled a cookie or 2! 🙂 Thanks for the tips about using Kraft bits….I never would have thought of that. I like oozing Marshmallows sometimes, messy = deliciousness!

  10. Liz, I have to tell you, my husband and I (as well as extended family and friends) absolutely LOVED Cookie Chew!! Seriously, you made the BEST COOKIES EVER!! Forget the Cheryl’s, the David’s, anything, and everything else doesn’t even come CLOSE. Cookie Chew did for cookies what Extraordinary Desserts did for cake, what Elizabethan Desserts did for cupcakes, . . . ok, wait, I don’t even think that description does it justice. Truly. Amazing. We unfortunately discovered it late in the game and were shocked, dismayed, and horrified when we found out the business was closed (Hey, I love me some stuffed cookies!!), . . . but praise God for your blog!! 🙂 It looks absolutely AWESOME!! Thank you for sharing your AMAAAZZINGG stuffed cookie recipes with us, as well as all of your other FABULOUS looking recipes!!! I’m a new mom with little free time to cook or bake, but dang Hoss, you are going to inspire me to get back into the kitchen with these mouthwatering recipes!! 🙂 So excited to see all your posts!!! God bless you!! 🙂

They mean so much to me you have no idea! 🙂 I am so happy you got to experience Cookie Chew even if it was towards the end….that’s when our cookie recipes were the best! I am so happy to be baking again and doing what I love which is coming up with crazy cookie concoctions! And I love that I get to share them in blog form! Congrats on being a new mom too! That is so exciting!You’ll probably have some free time in 4 years to bake :). Thank you again!!!!

      • YAY! So glad to have made your day, but it is all true!! Thank you for the congrats too!! I can’t wait 4 years, so I’ll have to figure something out soon!! 🙂 Weekend baking, maybe!! 🙂
