With summer already halfway over, it’s crucial we consume as many s’mores as we possibly can before Labor Day strikes.

And you don’t need a campfire to enjoy the delicious flavors of chocolate, marshmallow and graham crackers. Try this recipe for Oatmeal S’mores Cookies and you can enjoy s’mores anytime!

This recipe is super simple to make, yet the end result is Instagram-worthy. Best of all, it requires only four ingredients, allowing you to keep your summer as stress-free as possible.


Simply mix up the batter for these oatmeal cookies and bake them until they’re just set. Then, slice marshmallows in half with kitchen scissors or a small knife. Place a marshmallow on top of each cookie and then place everything under the broiler until the marshmallows are browned. Finally, top the marshmallows with an unwrapped Hershey’s kiss.

If you don’t want to grapple with cutting marshmallows in half, you might consider using Jet-Puffed Stacker Marshmallows. These marshmallows come in the perfect pre-flattened shape for s’mores, whether you’re mixing up these cookies or making traditional s’mores.


The hack behind these cookies is the fact that they’re made with Betty Crocker oatmeal cookie mix. This is a genius item to keep in your pantry for those times when you want to bake but don’t have any flour or sugar handy. Before you turn your nose up at the idea of using a prepackaged cookie mix, just know that there are many ways to make store-bought mixes taste better (such as using an extra egg or using milk instead of water). Many experts also recommend using butter instead of oil. You can also add in a teaspoon of vanilla for added flavor.

If you’re looking for a s’mores cookie recipe that is made with a graham cracker base instead of an oatmeal cookie base, try this recipe from Sugar Spun Run. Sam mixes graham cracker crumbs in with her dry ingredients, and then uses mini marshmallows and chopped Hershey’s bars to make her s’mores cookies out of this world.
