You don't need a bonfire to blow everyone away with this Ooey-Gooey S'Mores Skillet Cookie. This under baked cookie has a graham cracker crust and is filled with graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows! Serve it warm like a S'mores.
Hey Dough Girls and Dough Boys! I am back with another recipe and boy is it good! Like really good. I wanted to celebrate National S'mores Day with a S'mores dessert and this is what happened! I didn't know what to expect when I made this recipe but it is absolutely delicious! I must warn you, this s'mores skillet cookie is super gooey and under baked. If you are not a fan of those type of cookies, please leave this blog post immediately. This recipe is not intended to make a crunchy cookie. Not even close. When warm, this cookie could even be served as a dip! I am so impressed with how this came out and I am super excited about sharing it with you!
There are about 4 major steps to making this skillet cookie:
I've got some step by step pictures to help guide you as you prep but you know you can always skip to the recipe if you're ready to get to it.
Making the graham cracker crust is super easy! You just need graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and butter. Pour your graham crackers and sugars in a medium sized bowl and mix together with a fork. Then pour your melted butter in the bowl and mix it until you have a nice even texture.
This will be your the first layer of your skillet cookie and will really add that S'mores taste to the skillet cookie!
Set your pie crust mixture aside and get excited because you are one step closer to eating this bad boy.
Making this cookie dough is easy as well! It's a chocolate chip cookie dough recipe that's thick enough to hold all that ooey goodness that we are going to put inside. Side note: I'm not a big fan of using this cookie dough recipe for classic chocolate chip cookies. It tends to be a little too bready for my taste. However, whenever you are making something loaded like this, it comes in handy and is absolutely perfect!
You're going to start off by melting your butter in a medium/large microwave safe bowl. Whisk it by hand until it is nice and creamy. If you use a stand mixer make sure to keep it on low to medium speed.
Pour and mix in your sugar and brown sugar until it is evenly combined. Then pour in your egg and vanilla extract and mix it until just combined. You don't want to overmix your egg. It will make your cookies tough.
Pour in your dry ingredients and whisk the dough until almost fully mixed.
Add chocolate chips to the dough and fold the dough with a spatula until the dough and chips are fully combined.
Wrap your dough and let it sit for about 15 to 20 minutes. The butter inside the dough will start to cool to room temperature and the dough will thicken.
Now it's time to assemble the cookie. I found this part to be so much fun and I recommend getting the family involved. It was a truly a freestyle. You cannot mess this part up.
Start by patting an even layer of crust into the skillet. You can use your hands or a spatula. I wore gloves because I didn't want to get my hands messy but it's completely up to you.
Then take about 85 percent of the cookie dough and smear an even layer of cookie dough on top of the crust with a spatula. We are going to use the small portion of dough that is left to tuck in those delicious toppings.
Top the cookie dough with mini marshmallows, big marshmallows, graham cracker pieces, and Hershey's bars. Then take the last bit of your dough and scatter it on top of your topping to help layer them inside the dough. Feel free to go above the measurements in the recipe and overload your skillet with more toppings. I definitely added some more marshmallows at the end right before it went in the oven.
Let it cool for about 10 to 15 minutes and enjoy! Happy National S'mores Day! You don't need a bonfire to enjoy this delicious dessert!
Here's the recipe! I hope you enjoy making and eating this as much as I did!
