Summer is incomplete without s’mores. I tend to enjoy them the traditional way – on a camping trip, sitting around an open fire, but this American treat can be enjoyed anywhere, whether at a bonfire on the beach or in your very own backyard.

The components of s’mores are simple: graham crackers, chocolate, and toasted marshmallow. Though these three ingredients combined are the definition of delicious, I’m going to show you a couple of small ways to elevate your s’mores game so that your first bite is truly an otherworldly experience.

Snacking on a plain graham cracker sans melted chocolate and gooey marshmallow isn’t my thing, which is why I’m proposing the following substitution: chocolate chip cookies.

With the chocolate chips already inside the cookie, you can introduce a new ingredient into the mix: Nutella!

Who doesn’t love Nutella? This much-beloved spread can elevate almost any dessert, and s’mores are no exception. Below is my fool-proof recipe for chocolate chip cookie Nutella s’mores – aka the most decadent campfire dessert you’ll ever eat.

S’mores Recipe

Yield: 18 S’mores (32 Cookies)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1.5 cups chocolate chips
  • 32 marshmallows
  • 1.5 cups Nutella

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix flour and baking soda.
  3. In a separate bowl and with an electric mixer, combine butter and sugar. Mix until creamy. Then add eggs and vanilla. Slowly add in flour mixture until combined. Add chocolate chips.
  4. Shape dough into balls and place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.
  5. Bake 9-12 minutes depending on your desired level of crunch. (9-10 minutes will result in chewier cookies, 11-12 minutes will result in crispier cookies.)
  6. Once you’re ready to make your s’mores, take two cookies and spread a generous helping of Nutella onto the bottom of each.
  7. Toast your marshmallow(s) (one or two should do it) over the fire and once finished, place between the two Nutella-covered cookies you’ve just created.
  8. Voila – ready to eat!
