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
- 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
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees or 350 degrees convection bake.
Grease cookie sheet generously or use parchment paper.
In a large bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar.
Beat in the egg, then stir in the vanilla. Do not over mix.
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.
Use a cookie or ice cream scoop and place the cookie dough balls onto the greased or lined sheet.
Flatten the cookies slightly with palm of hand.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cookies are set on the outside.
-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.
