Aldi is well known for two things: saving customers some serious money and selling some out-of-this-world snack items. The grocery chain recently announced a new treat that is big on flavor and in size: Let us introduce you to the In the Mix S’mores Jumbo Cookie Kit!
This all-in-one kit takes the traditional individual s’mores and transforms it into a wonderful giant, ooey-gooey cookie. The kit creates a s’more cookie big enough to feed 16 people, making it a perfect dessert for an outdoor party this autumn. Instead of toasting marshmallows on an open fire, you can get all the delicious goodness of the s’mores with no fuss, no muss in your kitchen.
This cookie kit is only available through Aug. 27, so you’ll have to find one at an Aldi soon.
The $4.99 kit includes everything you need to make the giant s’mores cookie: Graham cracker cookie mix, chocolate chunks and mini marshmallows. In addition to the provided ingredients, you will need water and softened butter.
You don’t need to worry about digging out a cookie sheet to fit your jumbo-sized s’mores cookie, as the kit comes with its own nonstick pan. All you have to do is mix up the ingredients, place them in pan and presto! You have enough of the campfire classic to feed a small army!
Instagram account Oh hey, Aldi shared this snap of the cookie kit, along with the caption, “I like it. I love it. I want S’MORE of it.” We agree!

The final touch is adding the chocolate chunks and marshmallows just as the cookie comes out of the oven. The warm cookie will melt the sweets into the creamy and chewy texture everyone loves in the tasty cookie sandwich. (And if you decided to add a big scoop of ice cream on top, we wouldn’t blame you.)
The In The Mix S’mores Jumbo Cookie kit is not an exclusive Aldi item, but the retailer is carrying it as one of its Weekly Aldi Finds. So, hurry to your nearest location today and pick up a few boxes before they inevitably disappear.
Looking for some other s’mores dessert ideas that you can whip up at home? Try whipping up these peanut butter s’mores cookies. This recipe from Like Mother Like Daughter offers everything we love about s’mores — graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows — plus the addition of peanut butter. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s served up in cookie form.
To create the cookie base, you’ll blend brown sugar, peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs and other ingredients to yield the perfect bottom layer. From there, place and melt a marshmallow on top of the cookie, and while the marshmallow is still warm, press a Hershey’s kiss on top.
You can also try out this recipe for biscuit s’mores. Instead of using graham crackers to sandwich the marshmallow and chocolate, this option calls for something even more delicious: biscuits. You can make your own biscuit mix. Or, if you don’t have the time for that, consider using a pre-made box mix.
Finally, check out this recipe for decadent s’mores cupcakes. These Hershey’s S’mores Cupcakes from blogger OMG Chocolate Desserts have been transformed from mere chocolate cupcakes into delicious s’mores desserts with the help of a graham cracker crust, a light and fluffy marshmallow filling and a topping of rich milk chocolate ganache.
The filling on the inside is just an added bonus to an already over-the-top-cupcake. To fill the cupcake, all you need to do is cut the top off your baked cupcakes and gently hollow out the center to make room for the vanilla marshmallow filling.
There are plenty of s’mores treats to keep your sweet tooth satiated all year long!
