Ingredients You’ll Need

Unsalted Butter. Without this all-important ingredient, the cookies wouldn’t be nearly as flavorful or tender.

Granulated Sugar. Infuses the sweetness our cookies need. It goes without saying that without sugar, there wouldn’t be any cookies!

Large Eggs. Eggs act as an important binding element in the cookies. They not only hold them together but also help to impart a soft and tender texture.

Vanilla Extract. Vanilla is an important counter to the strong cocoa flavor and sweet marshmallows in the cookies. It helps to deepen all the flavors and make the cookie more satisfying.

All-Purpose Flour. Flour is the ingredient responsible for giving the cookies the structure they need and also the ability to hold their shape.

Unsweetened Cocoa Powder. Well, now it wouldn’t be much of a chocolate cookie without cocoa powder would it? This ingredient is what delivers that intense chocolate flavor that we all love so much. It’s also a perfect contrast to the sugary marshmallows.

Baking Soda. You want fluffiness in every bite? Then don’t forget the baking soda. It helps the cookies rise and stay soft.

Salt. A much needed flavor enhancer that balances out the sweeter parts of the dessert.

Large Marshmallows. It’s that gooey, sweet goodness we all love so much. Marshmallows are the perfect topping for this dark, rich cookie. When they melt, they add a velvety texture that makes them impossible to put down!

Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips or Chunks. The ingredient responsible for that perfect finishing touch – a shimmering, luscious chocolate glaze.

Milk or Cream. Makes the chocolate glaze easy to pour, giving it just the right consistency we need.

Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Cookies – Step by Step

Preparation. Preheat the oven to 350°F. While it’s warming up, get a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper.

Cookie Dough. In a large bowl, you’re going to mix the softened butter and sugar together until it forms a smooth mixture.

Add the eggs in one at time, beating them slowly. Stir in the vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients.

Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Once mixed, gradually add it to the wet ingredients and mix them all together.

Baking. Drop rounded tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes.

Once you take them out of the oven, immediately top each cookie with half a marshmallow. Return it to the oven to cook for 2 minutes.

After, remove from the oven and let them cool.

Chocolate Glaze. In a heat-proof bowl, melt the chocolate chips with milk or cream over a pot of simmering water. You can also melt them in the microwave using 20-second intervals. Just continue to stir until smooth.

Finishing Touch. Allow the cookies to cool slightly and then spoon (or drizzle) the melted chocolate on top of the marshmallows in the cookies.

Serving. As hard as it will be to do, give the cookies about 15 minutes to rest. They’re best enjoyed while slightly warm so don’t be shy!
