Gluten Free S’Mores Cookies

Gluten Free S’Mores Cookies

Everyone knows what a “S’More” is: smooth melted chocolate atop a sticky sweet marshmallow sandwiched between two deliciously crunchy graham crackers. But what genius invented these delectable treats? Apparently it was born of necessity, just like these gluten free S’mores Cookies!

In the early 1900s, marshmallows came into food fashion and had begun to be mass produced. Campers latched onto these confections as easy-to-carry, light portable sweets. Soon someone had the bright idea to melt them over the campfire and smoosh them between softened chocolate bars and ever-popular graham crackers (kindof like a homemade Mallomar Cookie or Moon Pie?). The first known published recipe for a s’more was in a 1927 Girl Scout Handbook.

Gluten Free S’Mores Cookies

Yield: 60 s'mores cookies
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350° F for static ovens, 300° F for convection.

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

When making the cookie dough, add marshmallows as well as chocolate chips. Cover and chill for 1-2 hours, if possible.

Fill lined cookie sheets with already baked graham crackers, spaced one inch apart. Scoop rounded tablespoons of chilled cookie dough onto each graham cracker.

Bake for 7 minutes, then lay a chocolate piece on top of each cookie. Return to the oven for another 2-3 minutes. Remove when the chocolate chip cookies are still soft and only lightly browned around the edges so they will stay chewy.

Makes approximately 60 S’mores Cookies. (You will have extra graham crackers for snacking or for making real s’mores by the fire!)

I hope you love this recipe as much as we do!

Pin for later!

    • Hi Linda, of course you could, I didn’t because I didn’t think it needed it and it’s so pretty this way, but you could absolutely sandwich the chocolate chip cookie between graham crackers.
