My oldest grand baby Ani LOVES marshmallows. If she sees a marshmallow, she doesn’t want anything else. No breakfast, lunch or dinner, just marshmallows. To satisfy her marshmallow obsession, I made her some of our favorite Double Chocolate Chewy Marshmallow Cookies!

Filled with chocolate chips, cocoa and marshmallows, these cookies were a hit with Ani. And everyone else who ate a cookie, or two. Or three.

Double Chocolate Chewy Marshmallow Cookies

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 18 3 inch cookies
Author abountifulkitchen


  • 1 ⁄2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 ⁄2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 ⁄2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3 ⁄4 cup flour
  • 1 ⁄4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • * 1-2 tablespoons milk if batter is dry


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees or 350 degrees convection bake.
  2. Grease cookie sheet generously or use parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar.
  4. Beat in the egg, then stir in the vanilla. Do not over mix.
  5. Pour the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt, chocolate chips and marshmallows into the bowl, stir into the creamed mixture just until the flour disappears. If using a mixer, mix on low for a few seconds, or you may use a large spoon. This is a folding action, do not over mix! If the batter is a bit dry, fold in a tablespoon or two of milk.
  6. Use a cookie or ice cream scoop and place the cookie dough balls onto the greased or lined sheet.
  7. Flatten the cookies slightly with palm of hand.
  8. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cookies are set on the outside.

Recipe Notes

-It is very important to generously grease the cookie sheet with a baking spray or to use a parchment paper liner. The marshmallows will melt and create a sticky residue which hardens and is difficult to clean. -This cookie should have the consistency of a chewy brownie, so baking just until the outer surface is cooked is best. These cookies are also really yummy refrigerated or frozen.

    Made the dough for these yesterday, and baked them tonight. They are great! I usually make your chocolate chip cookies to keep (already baked) in the freezer, but these were a great change. Will keep them in the freezer as well – we are now addicted to frozen cookies!

    1. CB, Isn’t it the best to always have cookie dough on hand and ready to go for …emergencies?! I’m glad you love the cookies and are sharing with your family! Thanks for reading ABK <3

    Baby and I needed these tonight so we ran to the store to buy marshmallows. We doubled the recipe because, well because you know I like to eat a lot of cookies. A delicious cookie indeed!

  4. Went and bought marshmallows and forgot I was out of cocoa (ergh)!! Made them anyway (used extra flour for the cocoa).
    My husband is IN LOVE! His favorite cookies EVER! Thank you! Now I need to make them with the cocoa.????

    1. Oh wow, Im trying to picture this cookie without the cocoa! I love that you forged ahead! Thanks for reading ABK and have a great day Sarah 🙂

    I love making these as bar cookies in a 9X9 or a little thicker in an 8X8. They are SO good! Today I added some PB chips and they were super good!

    Yikes. My first batch of these were a gooey mess. It was hard to know what texture the dough should be, but it seemed fine. Open the oven and the cookies had all run together all over the pan. So frustrating. I added more a little more flour and tried again. Nope. Batch 3 (thankfully I had doubled the recipe because I needed to take them to a party!), I increased the temperature on my oven (conventional oven) to 425 and finally got a batch that kept their integrity as individual cookies, and puffed up a little rather than flattening out. Don’t know if I should have done something different with the batter, but just thought others should be aware. They were tasty, it was just extremely frustrating when I needed to take them somewhere!
