Need something rich and chocolately to get you through a post-Hanson event depression? (Why does it have to be over?! WHY?) Don’t panic. Just make cookies.
Inspired by the classic Zac track “Marshmallow Lovers” as well as my Mrs. Field’s Best Ever Cookie Book, I give you Marshamallow Lovers Cookies. Watch this first to get inspired:
As much as I love how long his hair has gotten now, when I see the short hair I kind of dig it. He really can’t go wrong with those locks.
The cookie recipe is simple. Make the dough, then take a small amount in your hand, flatten it, and put a few frozen mini marshmallows in the middle.
Fold the dough around the marshmallows, adding a little extra dough where needed, and bake.
I was thinking this would give them a fluffy, thick, marshmallow center, but mostly the marshmallows dissolve into the cookie, which gives the whole thing a chewy texture. They are very chocolatey, and very delicious.
- 3 cups flour
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup (packed) light brown sugar
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 12oz. mini semisweet chocolate chips
- 8oz. mini marshmallows, frozen
- Preheat oven to 350F and put the marshmallows in the freezer. Keep them there until you're ready to start rolling and baking the cookies.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, and baking soda.
- In a large bowl, combine sugars and butter. Mix on medium speed. Add the eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy.
- Add the flour in three batches, blending until combined. Add in the chocolate chips and mix well. The batter will be very thick.
- Take a spoonfull of dough and pat it into a flat circle in your hand. Put 3-4 frozen marshmallows in the center then gather the dough around them. Use a few pinches of extra dough if there are any holes or gaps that need covering. You should have about a 2-inch-diameter dough ball.
- Place balls on ungreased cookie sheet (using parchment paper is ok). Bake 10-12 minutes. Remove and cool for 2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
I’ll melt a few and spread them on my bagel,
