This Girl Scout s’mores cookie copycat recipe is easy to make with only 3 ingredients! Gooey marshmallow fluff is sandwiched between two graham crackers and dipped in melted chocolate for a large, rich cookie with a slightly soft crunch.
Fun fact: There are two completely different Girl Scout S’mores cookies… depending on where you live.
So when I wanted to order the Girl Scout S’mores cookies from a friend’s kid and I saw the picture of the box, I was so confused. I was expecting chocolate-coated squares, and was instead presented with little tan rectangles with words printed on them.
Long story short, Girl Scout cookies have two different manufacturers, which results in two different selections of cookies that could very well have the same name.
I also learned that for that same reason, there are Girl Scout cookies that are the same, but have two different names! I’m learning something new every day.
- Caramel deLites = Samoas
- Do-si-dos = Peanut Butter Sandwich
- Peanut Butter Patties = Tagalongs
Check out this NY Times article for more detail about the whole situation – it’s wild to me.
Are Girl Scout S’mores cookies discontinued?
Based on what I’ve read, it sounds like they’ve stopped producing the chocolate-covered square kind that I’d had my eye on – or at least they have where I live.
That’s why I decided I should make my own easy, copycat version. And to be perfectly honest, I never thought the Girl Scout version had nearly enough marshmallow – so we’re going to kick that up a notch for my recipe.
P.S. Let’s all be thankful we still have our beloved thin mints!
- Graham crackers – You’re going to take 6 graham cracker sheets and break them in half for 12 squares.
- Marshmallow fluff – You want to use the Marshmallow Fluff in the white container with the red lid. Melted or toasted marshmallows won’t work the same way for this recipe.
- Chocolate melting wafers – I like to use Ghirardelli chocolate melting wafers, but you could substitute chocolate almond bark or chopped chocolate thinned with a little oil instead.
How to make s’mores cookies
Step 1: Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick silicone mat . Lay out half the graham cracker squares in a single layer. Use a medium cookie scoop (or a tablespoon) to drop 1-1 1/2 tablespoons marshmallow fluff onto the middle of each graham cracker on the baking sheet.
Step 2: Top each with one of the remaining graham cracker squares and lightly press down.
Step 3: Melt your chocolate in your preferred manner, with the microwave or in a double boiler. See the recipe card for details on how to do each.
Step 4: Using a candy dipper or a fork, submerge each graham cracker sandwich into the melted chocolate.
Step 5: Once completely coated, lift out and gently tap the fork against the edge of the bowl to remove excess dripping chocolate.
Step 6: Transfer the coated sandwiches back to the parchment paper to set at room temperature.
Substitutions & Variations
- Don’t have chocolate melting wafers? You can use chocolate almond bark, chopped chocolate, or chocolate chips instead. If you’re using the latter, you can add a little bit of oil to help thin out the chocolate for dipping.
- Don’t like dark chocolate? No problem! Use whatever kind of chocolate you’d prefer – these are awesome with white chocolate as well.
- Mix up the fillings! You know what else is awesome? Adding some peanut butter to the filling for a fluffernutter s’mores cookie. Or add a little raspberry jam. Or some cooked and crumbled bacon! Just trust me on this – they’re all delicious.
- Decorate ‘em! I love to drizzle a little extra melted chocolate and white chocolate on top for a little pizzazz, but you could also add sprinkles and make them extra special.
How to store s’mores cookies
Store the cookies in single layers between sheets of parchment paper in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
They may look similar, but they’re two different things! Fluff is soft, creamy, and sticky – it can be spread with a knife or scooped. Marshmallows have gelatin in them that helps them set and hold their shape, so a melted marshmallow won’t stay soft and creamy the way Marshmallow Fluff does.
Technically, you can – but the texture is going to be different. Funny enough, it’s right there in the name – marshmallow creme is more creamy, and marshmallow fluff is fluffier. I very much prefer and recommend Fluff.
Absolutely! I always have the honey-flavored on hand, but feel free to mix things up with cinnamon or chocolate graham crackers.
