Chocolate cookies filled with gooey marshmallows? I want this chocolate marshmallow cookie right now!! Don’t you? I mean, look at it!
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.
Gather the ingredients – softened butter, sugar and an egg. (A)
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.
Gather the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda and salt. (B)
Add flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt to mixer and mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. (C)
Take a ball of dough in your hand, make a divot in the dough and add a marshmallow. (D)
Scoop the sides of the dough over the marshmallow and place it on a cookie sheet.
Place a full cookie sheet into the oven and bake the cookies for 15 minutes.
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.
Let’s see if they look just as delicious at a different angle.
Yup, just as I thought. Still looking delicious.
Let’s see Christopher break one apart.
Now to plate it and eat it.
And so I do.
I hope you enjoyed this chocolate marshmallow cookies recipe.
