These are fairly simple to make even though they may sound like they are complicated. Stuffing the cookies is simple because you place the 3 main ingredients on top of a scoop of cookie dough then add another scoop on top and then you have your stuffed cookie.

Ingredients – What you need for the S’mores Stuffed Cookies
For the cookies
We like to use all-purpose flour when it comes to the cookies and for these delicious cookies, you will need 3 1/2 cups. When measuring the flour use a spoon and sift it before adding it to your cookie mixture. When it comes to dry ingredients this is one of the staples you will find in most cookie recipes. Flour provides the base and structure for the cookie dough.
Baking soda is such an important element to add to the flour mixture. It helps with the rising and the overall shape of the cookie. You only need 1 1/2 tsp for this recipe.
For this recipe, you need 1 1/3 cups of butter that is softened at room temperature. This recipe calls for salted butter as there is a lot of sweetness with some of the other ingredients so the butter will help balance out those flavors.
Sugar will help to give that chewy texture we know and love when it comes to these cookies. For this recipe, you will need 1 cup of brown sugar and 1 cup of granulated sugar. Both will help produce incredible chewy cookies.
Three eggs are the perfect addition to get the dough’s texture just right. The egg yolk also helps with the cookies’ chewy texture and golden color.
You can’t go wrong with the vanilla flavor of these delicious cookies. You will need 2 tsp of vanilla for this cookie recipe.
While we may already be using salted butter this recipe really works with that extra savory flavor that salt can bring. Adding just 3/4 tsp will be great.
We love a chocolate chip chewy cookie and adding 3 1/2 cups of milk chocolate chips will really transform these cookies to a different level.
The added extras
What are s’mores cookies if they don’t have that gooey marshmallow center? You need 36 mini marshmallows for this recipe although you could cut up large marshmallows if you can’t get any of the smaller ones.

A usual ingredient when it comes to a s’more but for these stuffed cookies you just need one large graham cracker that has been broken into 12 pieces.

First of all, gather all of your ingredients together. Preheat the oven to 375F and line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt until well combined – set aside
In a large mixing bowl cream butter and sugars until fluffy, then you can add in the eggs and vanilla and mix to combine. You can use an electric mixer for this.
Now get your dry ingredients and mix them into the butter mixture. Lastly, you will want to gently fold in the chocolate chips.
