How Do I Make This S’mores Cookies Recipe?

With the help of your air fryer, you can whip up a small batch of cookies in a matter of minutes! To prepare these s’mores cookies at home using your air fryer, just follow these simple steps:

Step One: Cream the Butter

Add the sugar, brown sugar, and softened butter to a large bowl. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the ingredients together until the mixture is light and fluffy. Then, add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat until the egg is combined into the rest of the ingredients.

Step Two: Mix the Dry Ingredients

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, cornstarch, and baking soda. Whisk the dry ingredients together until they’re well combined, then add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Beat the flour into the creamed butter until you have a thick dough.

Step Three: Add the S’mores Ingredients

Once your dough is ready, it’s time to give the cookies some s’mores flavor. Add the chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, crushed graham crackers, and chocolate bars to the bowl. Carefully stir the s’mores ingredients into the cookie dough.

Step Four: Air Fry the Cookies

Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees for around three minutes. While the fryer is heating up, use a cookie scoop to scoop out the dough and place each dough ball in the air fryer basket. Make sure to leave room for the cookies to expand as they bake. 

Step Five: Decorate the Cookies

Bake the cookies for eight minutes, then remove the basket from the air fryer. Top each cookie with additional mini marshmallows, graham cracker bits, and broken chocolate bars. Return the basket to the air fryer and continue baking for three more minutes, until the cookies are golden brown and the marshmallows are toasted.

Can You Make Cookies in the Air Fryer?

Making cookies in your air fryer is a great way to prepare a quick and easy sweet treat! That’s because it’s so simple to bake your favorite cookie using your air fryer with the help of these baking tips.

  • Line the basket with parchment paper. To keep the cookies from melting through the holes in your air fryer basket or tray as they cook, make sure to add a parchment paper liner before putting the cookies in. The liner will help your cookies spread and cook more evenly and keep them from sticking.
  • Give them room to spread. It’s important to bake your cookies in batches when using your air fryer because cookies need room to spread as they bake. Leave around one inch on all sides of the cookie to ensure each cookie has enough room to expand while it cooks.
  • Adjust the cook time, if needed. Since all air fryers cook differently, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on your cookies as they’re baking. They may not take the full 11 minutes to cook through. Or they may need slightly longer to cook. The first time you bake cookies in your air fryer, watch the cookies closely to avoid overbaking or burning them.

How Long Should Cookies Be in the Air Fryer?

The amount of time it takes to bake your cookies in the air fryer will typically depend on the recipe, but most cookies take between 8 and 12 minutes to cook. If you’re adjusting an oven-baked cookie recipe to bake them in the air fryer, you may need to reduce the cook time listed in the recipe. Since your air fryer circulates air as it cooks, it helps the food you’re preparing cook more quickly. That’s why you should adjust the cook time by two to four minutes when cooking a traditional recipe in your air fryer.

How Do You Store S’mores Cookies?

After all your cookies are baked, make sure to give them plenty of time to cool completely before storing them. You can place them on a wire cooling rack to help speed up the cooling time. Then, transfer the cooled cookies to an airtight storage container. Place the container in a cool, dry place, like a cabinet or pantry. When stored properly, your s’mores cookies will stay good for up to four days.

How Do You Keep Marshmallows from Melting in Cookies?

Since these chocolate chip cookies feature s’mores ingredients, it’s important to get that classic s’mores flavor as you bake them. And that means enjoying toasted – not melted – marshmallows on top.

To keep your marshmallows from melting while the cookies are baking, try waiting until the cookies are almost finished baking before adding the marshmallows on top. After that, continue cooking a few more minutes to give the cookies a chance to finish baking. The short cook time will allow the marshmallows on top to toast without fully melting.
