A blog reader sent me a cookbook and I’ve been spending time reading through the recipes. This one caught my eye.
See where it says, “Large Marshmallows halved”. That caught my attention. I’ve never made cookies with marshmallows except for ones with nuts.
Well, I wanted to try these simply because they sounded really interesting. Anything that sounds weird or different, is something I want to try. After not remembering to get marshmallows for three trips for grocery pick up, I finally remembered on the third try…but then I accidentally got small marshmallows. I needed large marshmallows. So on the FOURTH try, I got the marshmallows.
The moment I had time, I mixed up a batch. The batter is thick.
I used my smallest scoop to scoop the batter onto the cookie sheets.
I baked them for 8 minutes…
I took them out of the oven and put a large marshmallow cut in half on each cookie. Back into the oven they went for 2 minutes.
They came out looking like this…
I pushed the marshmallow down a bit so they looked like this and then let them cool.
I mixed up a batch of frosting. Using a spoon for the frosting worked best. Check out Rosie eyeing the cookies.
Here’s how they look…
Kalissa and I both liked them. We thought they tasted like a Ho-Ho.
Gannon loved them. What a chocolate mess he was!!
The batch makes about 30 cookies. Around here, that many gets snapped up FAST!!
They were really good and I will for sure be making these again.
I know someone will ask so I’m including info on the scoops.
HERE is a link to the scoops I use. I have all three different sizes. There are others that are cheaper but they don’t have the same construction as these. They have springs not the same interlocking mechanism at the bottom.
If you try them, let me know what you think of them. The cookies are cake-like and do taste a bit like Ho-hos.
