Remembering is fun

My love for marshmallows goes back a long time.  Marshmallows not only go well in s’mores, or s’more granola bars, but also in baked goods like this delicious cookie.  Lately, I’ve been devising more ways to serve my beloved marshmallows.

Want to see what I did with the marshmallows I bought for this recipe?

But first, did you know they now sell squished marshmallows for stacking?

When I saw them in the store, I thought, “Holy moly!  How ingenious!!”

So what did I do with them, once I opened the bag?  Well, naturally, I popped one into my mouth.

But the second one… I did this with the second marshmallow…

I took the stackable out of the bag, slathered it with Nutella and then topped it with almond butter.


Now then, back to my memory.  One sandwich I wanted all the time growing up, and I mean all the time, was the fluffernutter sandwich.  For those of you who don’t know, a fluffernutter is peanut butter and marshmallow fluff (aka marshmallow creme) slathered on white bread.  I ate so many of them that my mom used to think I was going to turn into one of those sandwiches.

I didn’t.  What did she know?!  😉

How to make these cookies


Take out a stick of butter an hour or two before you start.  When ready to begin, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step one

Gather the ingredients – softened butter, sugar and an egg. (A)

Step two

Take out your mixer, put the softened butter in it with sugar and mix until nice and creamy.  Add the egg and vanilla until just incorporated.  Do not over mix.

Let the cookies cool on the sheet for 5 minutes before gobbling them up.  Oops, I mean, remove them from the cookie sheet and place them on the wire rack to completely cool.

  1. My daughter made these awhile back and they were Delicious!! I helped with the forming of the cookies, but we weren’t able to get the fun crinkles with the marshmallow poking through. I wonder what we should do differently next time. Any suggestions?

    1. Devon, maybe she used too much dough? I don’t usually intend for the marshmallows to poke through, they just do! 😉

  2. Stackable marshmallows – wow! These look so yummy, and that pic with nutella and almond butter, mmm!

  3. These look so gooey awesome! I read your tagline “…and mostly healthy recipes” and then saw the title for this recipe and was oh so much happier;)
