This is my recipe for marshmallow chocolate chip cookies. My niece invented this cookie when we were baking regular chocolate chips cookies. I had some colorful mini marshmallows left on my counter from when we made hot chocolate earlier in the day. She saw them and wanted to add some color to our cookies so we decided to add them to our recipe. So we turned our chocolate chip cookies into a new marshmallow chocolate chip cookie and they turned out to taste great. I will now let her experiment and add any ingredients she wants too. Here is the recipe we came up with, I hope you can enjoy making this recipe with your family. Happy eating!
- 2 sticks of butter
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
- 2 cups of flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1 1/2 cups of oats
- 2 cups of chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray cookie sheet with a non stick cooking spray and set aside for later use.
- Using an electric mixer, beat together your 2 sticks of butter, 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup brown sugar for 2 minutes or until fluffy.
- Add in 2 eggs and 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract and beat for an additional 1 minute.
- Slowly add in the 2 cups of flour (1/2 cup at a time), 1 teaspoon of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of baking soda. This process will take 5 minutes.
- Using a spoon, stir in 1 1/2 cups of oats, 2 cups of chocolate chips and your 1 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows.
- Stir until everything is evenly combined.
- Cover mixture and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Using a tablespoon, scoop and place cookie dough onto your already prepared baking sheet about an inch apart.
- Bake for 10 minutes.
- Melt your remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in your microwave. (I like to heat at 30 second intervals to make sure the chocolate does not burn.)
- Drizzle the melted chocolate on top of your cookies. (Caramel can also be used on top as well, or use both for an extra special treat.)
- Let chocolate (or caramel) set and serve.
