Reeses Smores Cookies

Pretty recently, I made Smores cookies. Well those were quite the hit! My cousin basically scarfed a whole plate down in a matter of minutes, that's how good they are. Well I owed my other cousin some baked goods because he did me a favor. He specifically requested something peanut buttery and I had a glorious idea: Reeses smores cookies!
Well, my great idea turned out to be a great cookie! I just love this cookie; there's something about the graham crackers in the batter and the marshmallows that create this deliciously, perfectly chewy cookie. And this version, with the addition of peanut butter chips and Reeses cups was amazing! If you love peanut butter, this is for you! Such a delicious cookie!
Reeses Smores Cookies

Yields: about 3 - 4 dozen

Original recipe can be found here.

1 3/4 cups flour

1 cup graham cracker crumbs

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

1 cup/ 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup light brown sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs

1 cup peanut butter chips

1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows

8 Reeses cups, cut into pieces

In a stand mixer, combine the butter and sugars and mix until fluffy. Mix in the eggs and vanilla until combined. Add the flour, graham crackers, salt and baking soda and mix well. Stir in the peanut butter chips then cover and refrigerate the dough for about one hour. Preheat oven to 375 F. Take a tablespoon of the dough, roll into a ball, and drop onto a greased baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of dough, leaving about 2 inches between each to allow it to spread. Bake for 6 minutes, then remove from the oven. Push a 3 - 5 marshmallows and a few pieces of the chopped Reese's bar into each cookie. Return to oven and bake for another 2 - 3 minutes until golden brown and the marshmallows are a bit toasted. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!


  1. Ohhhhh gosh I'm dying thinking about these!

  2. Ooh, I love the big chunks of peanut butter cup in there! Looks amazing!

  3. i saw these on foodgawker and knew they were yours because recognized your photography! you always have beautiful pictures with a certain style

  4. That's it! I gotta make these for my husband's work.

  5. I always wondered how you could get marshmallows in a cookie without them just melting into something crunchy when cooled. I'll have to give these a try sometime!

  6. I woudl think Trader Joe's mini peanut butter cups would work perfectly in this recipe to save some chopping of PB cups. Sounds like a great cookie. I have a group at work that would enjoy them! Thanks for the recipe

  7. Just made these tonight - great! We're chocolate and peanut butter fiends, so this was bound to succeed. The graham crackers in the dough are fantastic. In the future, I might leave out the marshmallow to make more room for more PB cup chunks, but either way, it's good eatin'.
