What are Thumbprint Cookies?
Thumbprint cookies are balls of cookie dough that get flattened a bit by pressing your thumb into the center of each cookie. The centers are then filled with something sweet and delicious!
For these cookies, chocolate wafers get pressed into the centers and are then topped with marshmallow fluff!

Don’t get me wrong, I love homemade cookies, like A LOT! But it’s also nice to skip the flour, sugar, and the pile of dishes you get from homemade cookies every once in a while!
This Smores Cookie recipe skips all of that while still giving you incredibly soft and chewy cookies that you’ll love! To make up a batch you’ll need:
- Refrigerated Cookie Dough – I chose to use refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough! Feel free to choose what you like though!
- Graham Crackers – These get crushed before being added to the cookie dough batter.
- Mini Dehydrated Marshmallow Bits – These aren’t typically found by the rest of the marshmallows at the grocery store. Instead, check by the hot chocolate.
- Chocolate Melting Wafers – Pressed into the center of the cookies!
- Marshmallow Fluff – Piped onto each cookie and then toasted to give them that perfect s’more look!
How To Make S’mores Cookies
- Combine cookie dough with mallow bits and crushed graham crackers in a stand mixer until fully incorporated.
- Create dough balls using a medium cookie scoop and then place them on the prepared cookie sheet.
- Press a chocolate melting wafer into the top center of the cookie. Then top it with another melted wafer.
- Place the baking sheet into the freezer for 10 minutes. Then bake until the edges begin to turn golden.
- Pipe marshmallow fluff onto the chocolate center of the baked cookies.
- Toast the tops of the marshmallows until golden brown using a kitchen torch.
How To Store S’mores Cookies
Store these Smores Cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. Enjoy them within 4-5 days!
What If I Don’t Have A Kitchen Torch?
No worries, you can still make these incredibly delicious cookies without one! Just decrease the baking time of the cookies by 1 minute and then set the oven to low broil until marshmallow is golden.
How Do I Crush The Graham Crackers?
You can easily do this by placing the graham crackers in a ziploc bag and rolling with a rolling pin. You could also place them in a food processor.
However you decide to crush them just keep in mind that you’re looking for small pieces not crumbles.
Can I Reheat These S’mores Thumbprint Cookies?
You definitely can, in fact, I encourage you to because that gooey consistency is the BEST! To do so just place them in the microwave for 15 seconds.

S’mores Thumbprint Cookies
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a stand mixer, combine cookie dough with mini marshmallows and crushed graham crackers until fully incorporated.
- Using a medium cookie scoop, create balls of dough and place them on the prepared cookie sheet about 2 inch apart.
- Press a chocolate melting wafer into the top center of the cookie, then top it with another melting wafer..
- Place the baking sheet into the freezer for 10 minutes.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges begin to turn golden.
- Remove from the oven and fill a pastry bag with marshmallow fluff.
- Carefully pipe 1 tablespoon of marshmallow fluff onto the chocolate center of the cookies.
- Let the marshmallow fluff rest for 5 minutes to let the peaks rest.
- Using a kitchen torch, carefully toast the tops of the marshmallows until golden brown.
- Reshaping the cookies with your hands once you press the chocolate in may be needed.
- An oven on broil can be used instead of a kitchen torch, simply decrease the baking time of the cookies by 1 minute and set the oven to low broil until marshmallow is golden.
- These can be served warm or cold. For a gooey consistency, eat while hot or reheat for 15 seconds in the microwave if the cookies have already cooled down.
- You can crush the graham crackers by placing them in a Ziploc bag and rolling with a rolling pin or lightly crush them in a food processor. You’re looking for small pieces, not crumbles.
- 10 minutes in the oven worked well for me, but cook times vary by each oven.
