Cookie Dough S’mores (& cookbook giveaway!)

Prep 15 mins
Total 15 mins

When my friend, web designer, and one of my favorite bloggers Lindsay, of Love and Olive Oil, told me she was writing a cookbook, I was so excited for her. When she told me it was all recipes that had or tasted like cookie dough, I was ecstatic…for myself! I have been a batter eating fool my whole life. After the threat of salmonella started going around, I laughed in the face of danger and dug in with two spoons instead of one. πŸ˜‰

But thanks to Lindsay’s brilliant cookie dough filled mind, I can now whip up a batch of eggless cookie dough to eat all by itself. Better yet, I can now make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bread Pudding…. or Malted Cookie Dough Milkshakes ….or even better, Cookie Dough-Stuffed Cinnamon Rolls. Seriously y’all, my jeans just can’t take all of this magic!

The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook is full of amazing recipes and beautiful, bright photos of sugar-laden, cookie dough filled desserts. Each page reveals another delicious surprise and I am looking forward to baking my way through this book!

My first recipe I tried were these Cookie Dough S’mores. Did you read that?? I said, COOKIE DOUGH S’MORES. I told you this girl was genius! I would have never thought to dress up a s’more, but now I can’t stop imagining the possibilities. The cookie dough flavor shined and paired wonderfully with the melted marshmallow, chocolate, and crisp graham crackers. I saved the remaining cookie dough for a late night snack this week…who doesn’t like using their blow torch at midnight? πŸ˜‰

Yield: 12 s'mores

Cookie Dough S'mores are an upgrade to the classic campfire dessert. Add some edible cookie dough to your melted chocolate and toasted marshmallows!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk or cream
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 12 graham cracker sheets, broken in half
  • 2 (1.55 ounce) bars milk chocolate
  • 12 marshmallows


  1. In a mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add vanilla and milk. Mix in flour and salt and beat on low speed (or by hand) until incorporated.
  2. Spread about 1 tablespoon of dough onto 12 of the graham cracker halves. Break chocolate bars into 12 equal pieces, and center one piece atop each mound of cookie dough.
  3. Toast marshmallows over an open flame until golden brown or charred to your liking. Place a hot marshmallow on top of cookied dough and chocolate and top with remaining graham crackers. Gently press until marshmallow begins to ooze out the sides. Let sit for 30 seconds -or as long as you can stand- to let the chocolate get sufficiently melty. Enjoy immediately.

Easy Indoor S’mores: For a flameless version of this campfire favorite, place marshmallows on graham crackers and broil for 30 to 60 seconds, or until golden brown and gooey. Or microwave marshmallows for 8 to 10 seconds, or until puffed.

    Admiring the hard work you put into your website and detailed information you provide.
    It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed
    information. Excellent read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  2. The Healthy Apple

    I LOVE your photography! Your blog is beautiful and I am so excited to meet you in Seattle for BlogHer Food and then on the Tree Top trip! I eat my cookie dough with a nice big spoon!
    Have a great night; looking forward to meeting you this week!

  3. Frances F.

    I am almost 70 and still love making choc chip cookies for my kids and grand kids
    I will use my finger during mixing but a spoon after the are made.

  4. Kristen

    Oh, and I also have long liked Love and Olive Oil on Facebook – and just liked you, too! So excited to have found a great new blog πŸ™‚

  5. Jill E Martin

    1st- I eat my cookie dough in frozen chunks. I make a double batch, give half to my kids and stash the other half in the freezer in small chunks. Then after they are in bed I pull out the bag and eat it frozen. I suck on it and then chew the chips….if we are being honest here. πŸ™‚
    2nd- I am already a follower and fan, and I just reposted this on facebook because I am currently salivating at the idea of not only snarfing down cookie dough smores, but discovering oodles of more recipes to satisfy my sweet tooth.

    πŸ™‚ Joyous Eating!!!

  6. Jay

    I am a fan of both pages. I eat my cookie dough with a spoon hiding from my son so that I do not have to share. πŸ™‚

  7. fishgirl182

    i usually just use my finger and swipe it off of the mixer. thank you for the giveaway. those s’mores look divine!

    liked love and olive oil and novice chef on fb (name Thuy Lam) πŸ™‚

  8. joni

    I posted a link on Facebook about the contest. No one else is posting Facebook links, only Twitter links. So I guess I’m good?

  9. joni

    I eat cookie dough with my fingers… or from a spoon… or off the counter… or off the floor (5 second rule counts.)

  10. Sarah

    Whenever I make cookies, I take a few of the cookie dough balls and freeze them in the freezer for 20-30 minutes. I LOVE semi-frozen cookie dough. YUM!

  11. Patricia

    I use a hard rubber craper to get as much as I can, then I just stick my face in the bowl to lick the rest of the dough bits out.

  12. tiff

    I usually take a bunch with a spoon as I finish up making chocolate chip cookies. I don’t get all crazy with it, just a few tablespoons!

  13. Ann

    Tweet, tweet! …and thanks for such an awesome giveaway! You know I’m gonna laugh like mad if I win – being the last day and all….

  14. Ann

    Okay…I’m game! I eat my cookie dough by sticking my finger in the bowl and licking it off. Then I use the other hand! Two dips makes me smile!

  15. gutscheine

    I am sure this article has touched all the internet viewers, its really really pleasant post on building up new blog.

  16. Smylee

    I LOVE cookie dough…it never gets old! How I eat it really depends on how desperate I am for it. πŸ˜‰ It usually ends up being with my fingers, though!

  17. Veronica @ CafΓ© con Leche

    i like my cookie dough the best inside vanilla yogurt! but really im impartial to eating cookie dough any way πŸ™‚

  18. Jen @ Juanita's Cocina

    I eat my cookie dough with a spoon if I’m still needing to scoop some out for a recipe. If I’m at the end of the bowl, I use my finger. πŸ˜€

  19. Megan

    I used to be a shameless beater-licker. Now I still kick the beaters and sometimes eat it off a spatula for good measure, but if my husband peeks I have to pretend I’m innocently baking away. He doesn’t understand cookie-dough-eating. Weirdo. :-p

  20. Kristin @ eat healthy. be happy. live well.

    Definitely fingers first! I have to taste it to make sure the cookies will be good πŸ™‚

  21. Sarah M.

    If its a fresh batch still in the bowl, spoon. If rolled and chilled, knife. Whatever way it is i like to spoon or slice a little bit and pretend I’m just “checking” it’s consistency. Whichever I choose, it’s a “sweet” move. πŸ™‚

  22. Samantha Gale

    I eat it straight out of the bowl with my fingers! I just dirtied up a bunch of dishes; why would I want to add to it with another spoon?!


  23. Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking

    What a great giveaway! I eat my cookie dough right off the wooden spoon… but don’t tell the people I give my cookies to! For some reason, it tastes SO good off a wooden spoon!

  24. Laura

    Love, Love, LOVE cookie dough. Usually more than the cookie! Eat it by the spoon ful, with fingers and of course face first licking the bowl. There can not be a wrong way, it is cookie dough after all.

  25. Beth @ TheAngelForever

    I eat my cookie dough very, very, very quietly (usually with a spoon). Need to make sure the littles are not watching what I am up to πŸ˜‰

  26. TechyDad

    I eat my cookie dough in any way I can…. before my wife and kids eat it all! (Can’t be picky about eating methods when there’s cookie dough competition!)

  27. Dena

    Usually from a spoon, but if it gets on my fingers, that’s fair game too… and don’t get me started on licking the beater or spatula or bowl before another family member catches wind of it and wants some πŸ™‚

  28. Rachel Cooks (formerly Not Rachael Ray)

    I tweeted this and facebooked it but didn’t enter. Where the heck is my head? Maybe in a big bowl of cookie dough. No, it’s not because I’m preggers and can’t eat raw eggs. Reason #89235892358923589235 why I need this book.

  29. Cristina M

    I usually clean up the batter bowl with a rubber spatula and then sometimes will lick the bowl to finish it off πŸ˜‰

  30. Cathy

    My favorite way to eat cookie dough is with my fingers… it saves on having to do more dishes, that’s always good, right?? πŸ˜‰

  31. Christina S.

    I start out with a HUGE spoon, and then when all the cookie dough is in the oven for whatever I am making, I take out the trusty spatula to make sure I get all the remnants πŸ™‚

  32. Jenn

    I freeze my cookie dough in a valiant effort to keep from eating it all at once…doesn’t really help though. So I’d have to say I end up eating it with a knife, since I’m too impatient to wait for the dough to thaw!

  33. Jessica W.

    I prefer cookie dough over baked cookies so sometimes a spoon but most of the time a few will make it from the cookie scoop on the tray, some stay with me πŸ™‚

  34. Becky

    With my fingers. Okay, well sometimes with a spoon, too. πŸ™‚ Depends if I’m just snitching a bit or if I’m full on snitching. πŸ˜€

  35. Anna @ hiddenponies

    I clearly need this book – wow! My favourite way is in cookie dough truffles, but with a spoon is a close second!

  36. Rachel (teacher-chef)

    I love cookie dough any way – but my fiancee loves it any way even more!!! I just added this cookbook to our registry (I enjoy cooking and he enjoys eating – cookbooks are perfect in my opinion).

    I just posted some S’Mores recipes – love this combo of the S’mores and the Cookie dough – for sure winner!!

  37. Claire

    With my grubby little paws! And oh, my goodness.. Making these S’mores next. I made Ice Cream S’mores Sandwich and they were to die for… This might rival that!!

  38. Olivia

    I’m allergic to eggs, so I’ve been eating raw cookie dough by the fistful for a long time. So glad this book has been made, now everyone can share in the sugar-coma!

  39. Rebecca

    I already like you on Facebook and I just liked Love & Olive Oil on Facebook. I’m now drooling even more after looking at the posts on FB. πŸ˜‰

  40. Rebecca

    I am seriously drooling now! πŸ˜› I’m so going to have to try it!

    It’s been awhile but I use a spoon mostly but occasionally use my fingers. πŸ™‚

  41. Debbie Hornyak

    OHMY! LOVE cookie dough! I remember years ago after a bad day at work.. I had to go to the grocery store and I picked up a tube of the Nestle cookie dough. Got in the car, whapped it open on the dash, and ate it like a dang lollipop all the way home, lol! πŸ™‚ Love The Novice Chef and Love & Olive Oil and am a huge fan on FB! xoxo

  42. Tina {My Life as a Mrs}

    Oh my gosh. I need these. I eat cookie dough with my fingers… with a spoon… whatever gets the job done! I laugh in the face of salmonella! πŸ˜‰

  43. Katie

    These look spectacular! I already have the book on preorder, but could always use another one! I love to eat cookie dough by the spoonful!

  44. Julia

    I NEED this cookbook, not only for myself, but for my husband. He could LIVE on cookie dough! Conveniently about 1/4 of every batch I make sticks to the bowl or beaters. He gets the bowl, I get the beaters. It’s an unspoken rule in our house.

  45. thelittleloaf

    I actually like my cookie dough best baked – as cookies or as a layer with brownies, although I do love it stirred through ice cream too. This book sounds all kinds of awesome – love Lindsay’s recipes.

  46. Emelina Lisa

    i have to admit, i eat my cookie dough with my fingers! it makes it seem like i’m not eating too much of it… yum! =)

  47. Joanne

    I’m making a recipe from the book tonight to review! SO excited after seeing these (although I’m making the whoopie pies!)

  48. Sarah in Miami

    I eat my cookie dough…baked. No judgement!! There’s just something about cookies fresh out of the oven. Best dessert ever!

  49. Books n' Cooks

    I eat my cookie dough with a spoon or spatula. Gotta make sure I scrape the bowl completely clean!

    I’m looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of this book. My hubby absolutely loves all things cookie dough, and I’d love to treat him.

  50. Alaina

    I eat cookie dough, half frozen, digging in with a big spoon and large glass of milk!! (Also dig in deep with my fingers as Im the mixers going! :O)

  51. Michelle D

    Mm, cookie dough! Must admit, I use my fingers to eat it… unless there is some left on the spoon or bowl when I’m cleaning up after making dough.

  52. Cate

    I can’t wait to see how this cookbook turned out.. such a fan of Lindsay/L&OO. As for the cookie dough, I eat it any way I can get it (although I try to draw the line somewhere before face first :).

  53. Marnely Rodriguez

    Will I be punished if I say that….I DON’T eat cookie dough? Ever. Never. Just can’t do it. It’s not the eggs. It’s just…the cookie dough? Sigh. I love cookies! Please don’t hate me πŸ˜‰

  54. Renee

    I’ll take cookie dough any way I can get it, but I do try to use a spoon, as I don’t like having things under my nails. But if there’s no spoon to be found, that would never stop me.

  55. Angeline Pitts

    With a spoon and with my fingers. Sometimes I cut it with a knife (the store bought kind in a tube) and then eat it with my fingers πŸ™‚

  56. Laura

    I like to make the cookie dough into a ball like I’m about ready to bake it, and then use my fingers to take bites out of it. Yum!

  57. Heather of Kitchen Concoctions

    Omg! I am a S’mores freak and this is just crazy goodness! Oh and my favorite way to enjoy cookie dough- frozen!

  58. Elizabeth

    How do I eat my cookie dough? Definitely with my fingers. Each time I make it, I just can’t help scooping some up with my fingers and “testing” it repeatedly. πŸ˜‰

  59. Rachel @ Baked by Rachel

    I did in with a spoon – big heaping spoonfuls and always go back for more. Or maybe my finger too. It’s hard to resist.

  60. Amber Sadie

    If I’m sharing my cookie dough, which I really only do when I’m baking with little ones or eating it with my besty while we watch movies like Atonement and sob hysterically, I use a spoon. It just feels more appropriate somehow, to be eating raw dough with a spoon when people are around to witness it. However, when I’m alone, I use my fingers. I sit in front of some trash TV and scoop it up between my forefinger and thumb and nom, all the while telling myself it’s ok because eating it slowly so it’s not as bad. Because, you know, eating it over a longer stretch of time is almost like eating less since it’s eating less at once? It works if you don’t think about it too much.

  61. Nicole

    I eat it with a spoon… BUT! I also eat it off the paddle… off the scoop… and anything else the cookie dough might have come in contact with πŸ™‚

  62. Caroline @ chocolate & carrots

    With a spoon…but, I haven’t been able to the last 9 months because I’m pregnant. Can’t wait to eat it again! πŸ˜€ mmm! Thanks for the giveaway!

  63. Tiffany W.

    With a spoon! – I’ll be looking for this cookbook, it will be just perfect for our girlfriend get-togthers.

  64. The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh

    I roll it into a ball, throw it on the ceiling and wait for it to drop into my mouth for anticipation’s sake. Okay, I really just grab a hunk but how boring an answer. πŸ˜›

  65. Sally @ Sallys Baking Addiction

    Jessica, I just found your blog. i LOVE it here!

    I’m a fan of you and Love + Olive Oil on FB!

  66. Erin R.

    Genius! The perfect cookbook, I’d say. I shovel cookie dough in with a spoon, usually with my back to my husband in a misguided attempt to keep it ladylike. I rarely ever eat the cookies after they are baked, those are all for husb. I’m a dough person through and through.

  67. Lauren

    Love this post and the recipe! Cookie dough is best eaten with fingers–it will ALWAYS end up that way no matter how you begin eating it. I try with the spatula or spoon first, but if you’re like me and want to eat EVERY LAST DROP of dough, then you’ll use your fingers! Haha.

  68. Larissa

    I liked Love and Olive Oil on Facebook…already liked your page. πŸ™‚

    And, I posted the message on facebook.

    I wanna win!! My son and hubby LOVE chocolate chip cookies and the dough…daughter likes it too, but she prefers butter cookies or sugar cookies. Whatever.

    Love your blog!

  69. Larissa

    Well, I baked chocolate chip cookies last night and I just pinch off a bit of dough every now and then…and sometimes use a spoon.

  70. DessertForTwo

    Come to mama! I take my cookie dough by the pinch. I pinch off a piece that includes one chocolate chip. Then repeat 50 more times.

  71. Rachel R

    Totally a spoon-using cookie dough eater, heck, I’ll even use my fingers to get those last little bits out of the bowl!

  72. Emily

    I eat cookie dough any way. I eat cookie dough with my fingers…but then use a spatula to scrape the leftovers out of the bowl. Can’t let it go to waste!

  73. Hannah

    I was one of the unfortunate kids that was never allowed to eat raw cookie dough, so all these eggless recipes now are just what I need to be able to dig in with a spoon! I love the idea of putting it on s’mores!

  74. Rachel

    I eat my cookie dough with a spoon! If there’s any left after that, then it often ends up in cupcakes, ice cream or between a couple of chocolate chip cookies.

  75. Jessica Lynn

    Spoon first, then I use my finger to get the bits the spoon left, then I lick it with my face. For real.
