Looking to keep the kids busy during summer vacation? Try making these S’mores Oreos Cookie Dough Treats with them. There is no baking involved, so you can keep the house cool. And they combine two favorite flavors into one, cookie dough and s’mores. They are half crunchy, half chewy, and 100% addictive. You can decorate them with some cute red, white, and blue sprinkles and make them in time for your Fourth of July celebration. The kids and the adults will love them!
Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make the eggless cookie dough. The meringue powder is the egg substitute, you just mix it with water. I use this recipe all the time and it never fails to make people happy. I love to eat raw cookie dough, and at least this way I know I won’t get sick. Unless of course I eat the entire batch in one sitting.
I used my mini scoop to evenly distribute the cookie dough onto all the S’mores Oreo Cookies. You will need to packages of the Oreos for this recipe, but there will be leftover cookies for you to taste test by themselves. You can find these Oreos at Target.
After the treats took a quick trip to the freezer, I used Candiquik Candy Coating to cover them in chocolate. It melts smoothly and you can melt it in the microwave in the cardboard container it comes in. Less mess to clean up. I also decided not to stress myself and try to dip the whole cookie and cookie dough at the same time. Instead, I dipped the bottoms first and then placed them back in the freezer before dipping the tops and decorating. I did it in small batches, so that by the time I was done dipping all the bottoms, I started taking out the previous batches and dipping the tops.
I found the sprinkles in the dollar bins at Target. The Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits are from Target also. I try to pick up a container each time I go because the kids love it on their cereal, ice cream, or as a snack. I love how the sprinkles look like exploding firecrackers on these treats.
Let me just say, s’mores and cookie dough go very well together, not to mention the added chocolate and mini marshmallow bits just make it even better. You can still clearly taste the different flavors. I kept my treats in the fridge because the heat wave down here has been awfully brutal. And I was pleasantly surprised that the cookies remained crunchy and the treats tasted just as good cold as at room temperature. S’Mores Oreo Cookie Dough Treats were a definite winner in our household.

Ingredients (35 treats)
For the cookie dough
- 1/3 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/8 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon meringue powder
- 1 tablespoon water
- 3/4 + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
For the treats
- 2 packages (10.7 oz.) S’Mores Oreo cookies
- 2 packages (16 oz.) Candiquik Chocolate candy coating
- Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits
For the cookie dough
In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars.
In a small bowl mix together the meringue powder and water, then add it to the mixer bowl, along with the vanilla and mix well.
In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.
Next, add the dry ingredients to the mixer bowl a little at a time while mixing on low until dough starts to form.
Last, add the chocolate chips and mix until all incorporated.
For the treats
Using a mini scoop, top each Oreo cookie with a scoop of cookie dough and flatten out evenly.
Place treats in an airtight container lined with wax paper and place in the freezer for 1/2 hour to 1 hour until firm.
Once treats are ready, melt chocolate candy coating according to instructions on the package.
Dip the bottoms of the treats in the chocolate all the way up to the top of the Oreo cookie. ( I recommend doing this in small batches so the treats stay firm.)
Place the treats back into the wax paper lined container and place back into the freezer until the chocolate is set.
Once coating is hardened, dip the tops of the treats in the chocolate and allow the chocolate to set.
If you are adding Mallow Bits or sprinkles to the tops of your treats, do so before the chocolate coating hardens.
Keep your treats in an airtight container. They do not need to be refrigerated, but you may do so if you like. You can always bring them back to room temperature to eat, or you can eat them cold.
Make sure you line your container with wax paper when placing the candy coated treats in it. Otherwise when the chocolate sets, it will completely stick to the container. Trust me.
