These s’mores cookie bars are the next best thing to a backyard campfire roast. All the same great flavors but less prep work. Loaded with chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, graham crackers and marshmallows. It’s just like taking a big bite out of an ooey gooey s’mores.
I want you to think of the most amazing cookies you’ve ever had. Got it?
Now, forget about it.
These easy s’mores cookie bars are your new favorite dessert!
All your favorite ingredients, marshmallows, white chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips and chunks of graham crackers.
To get that real-life s’mores taste I took out a portion of the flour and replaced it with graham crackers, then pulsed it finely in my food processor.
Cookies will never be the same. This is the way it’s just meant to be my friends, the graham cracker base is amazing.
When I think of s’mores I think of sitting around a campfire, telling stories, singing songs and enjoying the company of my fellow marshmallow roasters.
But when you can’t make that fire this is the next best thing.
Even the girl scouts have a s’mores cookie now, so you know we are on to something here!
What’s In A S’mores Cookie Bar
Here’s all the yummy extras inside of these cookies that give them that true s’mores flavor
- graham crackers, pulsed – these get mixed in to the flour, we sub a bit of flour for pulsed graham crackers so the cookies really taste like a s’mores
- graham crackers, crumbled – big chunks of graham crackers, gives you lots of graham cracker flavor, delicious!!
- white chocolate chips – these give the cookies a nice sweetness
- semi sweet chocolate chips – no s’mores is complete without chocolate
- mini marshmallows – for the ooey gooey marshmallow goodness
Baking With Marshmallows
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried making cookies with marshmallows, it’s a lot!
Honestly, it just doesn’t always work, it can turn into a big glob of gooey marshmallow mess all over your cookie sheet.
I will say that these Mad Scientist Cookies actually stay in good form, these are the exception and some type of miracle.
If you think about a marshmallow, roasting over an open flame, it puffs up and expands. So when you bake them in the oven it’s the exact same way.
Can I make these like a drop cookie? No, because the marshmallows will expand and be all over the baking sheet. Cooking them in a square pan allows the marshmallows to expand without getting stuck to the bottom of a cookie sheet.
Can I sub different chocolate chips? Of course! Get creative.
Can I make this gluten free? With gluten free alternatives to the flour and graham crackers, you can. I’ve had multiple friends have success in making these gluten free.

- 1/3 c semi sweet mini chocolate chips
- 1/2 c mini marshmallows
- 2 graham crackers, rough chopped
- Preheat oven to 350
- Line a square baking pan with parchment paper
- Using a mini food processor add the 1/2 c graham crackers and pulse until the consistency is fine, like flour
- Cream butter and sugar on medium speed for 3 minutes
- Add the vanilla and egg, mixing
- Use a fine mesh colander to sift the flour, graham cracker crumbs, salt and baking soda over the bowl

- Set it on a cutting board and cut into squares
Measure the inner width of the baking pan, cut two pieces of parchment paper that are each that width, lay one down and then lay the other going to opposite direction.
By adding the dry ingredients plus the add-ins all at the same time you cut down on the possibility of overmixing the batter.
