I'm not a big chocoholic but these are damn tasty! Thanks to Dave's buddy, Ben, we were introduced to these 'can't eat just one' chocolate marshmallow cookies a few years ago. His wife Shannon was kind enough to steal Ben's secret recipe out of his recipe box - thanks girlfriend! ;) My favorite part is biting into the warm chewy marshmallow. Mm-mmm-good!


3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 cups (12 ounces) mini semisweet chocolate chips
8 oz. mini marshmallows, frozen

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Until you are to ready to assemble the cookies just prior to baking, keep the marshmallows in the freezer - otherwise they will thaw too rapidly.
2. In medium bowl combine flour, cocoa, and baking soda. Set aside.
3. Combine sugars in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer, blend in butter, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add eggs and vanilla, and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. 4. Add the flour mixture and chocolate chips, and blend at low speed until combined. Batter will be very stiff.
5. Gather 4-5 marshmallows in the palm of your hand and cover them with a heaping tablespoonful of dough. Wrap the dough around the marshmallows, completely encasing them and forming a 2-inch-diameter dough ball.
6. Place balls on ungreased baking sheets, 2-inches apart. Bake 15 minutes. Cool on pan 2 minutes, then transfer to a cool, flat surface.

For an extra twist - add alittle peppermint. Hope this ends your weekend on a sweet note! xo

  1. I tried this recipe and upon taking the cookies out, all of them had leaked a little bit of marshmallow. However, after biting into them, THEY WERE HOLLOW!! The marshmallow disappeared. No idea where they went. Seriously. Like magic.
