To make these delicious Vegan Copycat Chocolate Chip S’mores Crumbl Cookies, you’ll need:
- Vegan margarine – I prefer to bake these vegan chocolate chip cookies with vegan margarine by the brand Becel. It’s a soft tub margarine and is lighter and fluffier than classic vegan buttery sticks. If you use vegan butter from brands like Earth Balance or softened coconut oil, I recommend adding 1-2 extra tablespoons of plant-based milk because these butters have less moisture than soft margarine.
- Vegan marshmallows – I picked up the maple flavoured “Dandies” at my local health food store, but the brand is becoming more popular in some supermarket chains. Wait until nearly baked to add a marshmallow topping, or have them crystallize and brown by adding them in before baking!
- Brown sugar – My favorite brand to use is Redpath, but any brown sugar will work. For best results, lightly pack it into your measuring cup before creaming with the butter.
- Flour – I have only made these cookies using classic all-purpose flour. Some readers had success using gluten-free flour blends but I have personally not tested it myself and cannot say how similar the results will be. If you’d like to experiment, feel free to, but know that it can drastically change the end cookies.
- Graham cracker dust – I’ve had trouble finding a purely vegan graham cracker in the past, and they’re not often found at your local supermarket. But I have a hack! All you need to do is take some of the extra cookie dough leftover (About 3 tablespoons without chocolate chips), and thinly spread it on some parchment paper with the cookies. When it comes out of the oven, it should be browned and crunchy. Crumble the cookie to dust and sprinkle on the crumbl cookie for topping!
- Chocolate chips – I used to use Costco’s chocolate chip cookies, but they have since changed the formula to include dairy. Instead, use any dark chocolate chips or dairy-free milk chocolate chips you can find. A popular vegan brand is Enjoy Life. If needed, you can also substitute a chopped chocolate bar or your favorite chocolate chunks.
How to make chocolate chip s’mores crumbl cookies:
- Start off by creaming the vegan margarine and brown sugar together. You can do this using a wooden spoon, but an electric hand mixer will make this process fast and easy. Mix in a large bowl until the butter and sugar mixture is light and fluffy.
- Add non-dairy milk and vanilla extract. Mix again to combine using an electric hand mixer or wooden spoon.
- Combine the dry ingredients. In a separate medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder and flaky sea salt together. Make sure to do this well to evenly disperse the baking soda and baking powder. This will help the cookies rise evenly.
- Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. I like to do this in two sections. First, add half of the flour mixture in and mix until it is well combined. Then add the other half and repeat the process until a cookie dough forms. The dough should be fluffier than the average chocolate chip cookie due to the extra flour added.
- Mix in chocolate chips. I typically use 1/3 cup, but you can use up to 1/2 cup if you love your cookies with extra chocolate.
- Roll the cookie dough into individual balls. I recommend making them about 2 tablespoons in size. You can scoop the dough using a regular spoon or cookie scoop. It does not have to be perfect, but try to make them roughly the same in size. Once rolled, pull the ball apart into two equal parts, turn both on their side with the raw edges facing up and gently stick them back together. This will give the appearance of a more textured cookie on top much like the Crumbl cookies.
- Bake. Place the cookie dough balls on a non-stick baking sheet and transfer to the oven to bake for 9-11 minutes, or until puffy. No parchment paper is needed – the cookies will come off of the baking sheet easily! If you’d like the cookies and marshmallows to be more browned, broil in the oven for around 1-2 extra minutes!
- Cool slightly then enjoy. Allow the baked cookies to cool slightly on the baking sheet, then transfer them to a wire rack to complete cooling. You’ll notice when they first come out of the oven, they are quite puffy but as they cool they deflate and become the perfect chewy consistency. I highly recommend enjoying a few vegan chocolate chip cookies while warm with a glass of your favorite almond milk or oat milk.
Tips and Tricks:
- For best results, make sure your vegan butter is at room temperature before starting. This will ensure that it creams together with the sugar properly.
- Don’t overmix the dough! You want it to be just combined, so that the cookies turn out chewy and delicious.
- If you can’t find vegan mini marshmallows, you can cut regular vegan marshmallows into smaller pieces.
- If you’re feeling extra indulgent, you can drizzle some melted vegan chocolate on top of the cooled cookies for an extra chocolatey twist.
