I had a sweet tooth for a marshmallow-y dessert and immediately pictured some type of s’mores-like cookie.
I went to the store, bought a bag of marshmallows and chocolate morsels, and made these cookies every day for 2 weeks.
I’ve used this recipe to make several different versions of this super simple cookie with oats, chocolate chips, and marshmallows and it comes out PERFECT every time.
Not only did I just save a bunch of money (cookies are my snack-weakness) but I get to customize the toppings exactly how I like.
•1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
•1 teaspoon salt
•1/4 teaspoon baking powder
•1 ½ sticks of unsalted butter, very soft
•1 cup brown sugar
•2 cups roughly chopped chocolate or chocolate chips
•handful of marshmallows
•1/2 cup oats (optional)
Preheat oven to 375
Step 2. Combine the dry ingredients: flour, salt, and baking soda in a mixing bowl. Whisk to combine.
Step 3. Beat the butter and sugars: Using a silicone whisk, beat together the granulated sugar, brown sugar, and softened butter in a medium bowl until combined and thick.
Step 4. Mix in the eggs and vanilla: Add the two eggs and vanilla to the butter-sugar mixture and beat at medium speed until no clumps or streaks remain, 10 to 20 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and the beaters.
Step 5. Mix in the dry ingredients: Add flour mix to butter and sugar mix. Combine evenly with a wooden spatula so there is no flour showing.
Step 6. At this step you can add in any of your favorite toppings; chocolate chips, nuts, toffee bits, you name it!
Step 7. Chill the dough: If your dough is too soft to roll into balls, scrape down the sides of the bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 15-30 minutes or until dough is thickened.
Step 8. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop the dough, about a tablespoon in size, and place on baking sheet.
Step 9. Bake the cookies: Bake the cookies for 10 minutes. Let them cool, then enjoy!
Gently press 3 to 4 mini marshmallows into the tops of each cookie, if using.
Return the cookies to the oven and bake for another 2 to 3 minutes, until the marshmallows look like puff balls and are just starting to melt around the bottom. Usually I turn the oven off and leave the cookie sheet. The marshmallows will continue to melt.
