Chocolate And Marshmallow Cookies

Chocolate and Marshmallow cookies - easy, yet incredibly tasty marshmallow cookies. Amazing and very gooey

I love a good cookie, they make a perfect snack. My favourite type of cookies are nice and gooey ones. This chocolate and marshmallow cookies recipe is perfect, they are easy to make and are perfectly gooey.

I originally was going to just make them marshmallow cookies but I wanted to add a few chocolate chips, giving it some additional flavour.


These chocolate and marshmallow cookies use a combination of light brown sugar and golden caster sugar. I think this gives it a nice golden colour and also adds to the sweetness of the cookies. The recipe uses plain flour and baking powder to help it rise, you could use self raising flour as an alternative.

The first thing to do is to preheat the oven at 180 degrees, before putting the cookies in you want the oven to be nice and hot and to reach the top temperate. In a bowl add the sugars and the butter. You want to beat this until it’s combined and creamy. I would recommend dropping the butter in as small cubes as this will be easier to cream.

Add the egg to the cookies by beating it into the mixture. Sieve the flour into the bowl along with the baking powder. Stir it all fully until its nice and combined. Drop in around 50g of chocolate chip cookies and a good 3 handfuls of marshmallow. Continue to stir everything to ensure the chocolate chips and marshmallow has been fully mixed in.

Finally its time to cook the chocolate and marshmallow cookies!! With a teaspoon you want to take a spoonful and place it on a baking tray that is covered in parchment paper. Make sure you leave a good space between as the mixture will spread down and outwards. You could make the cookies even smaller by getting a smaller spoonful….might help make them last longer!!

Pop them in the centre of the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are nice and brown. The centre will still be a little soft but once cooked take them out and leave them for 5 minutes. In this time the chocolate and marshmallow cookies will harden. Remove from the tray and put them on a wire rack to fully cool.

Enjoy as a snack or with a yummy glass of milk!

Detailed Cranberry Cookies

I love cookies, they make an excellent snack and are even better with a nice cold glass of milk 🙂 I was initially going to make these with just the cranberries but decided to add the chocolate chips as I find they add a little extra chewiness to the cookies, which I personally love.

Pre-heat the oven at 165 degrees. The first step is to get yourself two bowls, and sift the flour and baking soda into one of these bows. You don’t need to combine the two as they will be mixed together later. Get the second bowl and put in the butter, brown sugar and white sugar.

Ideally you want the butter to be fairly soft as this will make it easier to mix the 3 ingredients together. Give these a good mix with a wooden spoon so that all sugar grains are combined with the butter and it’s smoother in consistency.


Beat the egg and additional egg yolk into the mixture and continue to beat until the cookie mix has become lighter and creamier. Next get the bowl of flour and baking soda and combine this with the cookie mixture, continue to stir with the wooden spoon until it is fully combined. Once all the flour has been mixed into the cookie dough you then want to pour in the chocolate chips and cranberries.

Continue to mix these in with the wooden spoon until they have been fully combined with the cookie dough. Cover a baking tray or two with non stick parchment paper. You then want to use a heaped teaspoon with cookie dough mixture and place this onto the parchment paper, ensuring that you leave roughly 2-3 inch gap between each cookie.

I use teaspoons as when these are cooking the mixture does spread out, using too much will cause them to mix together and lose their shape. Cook these in the oven for roughly 15-20 minutes until the sides have become lightly brown, you can cook for longer and this will make them crunchier.

Once cooked take them out but leave them on the tray for 5 minutes to fully set, allow them to fully cool on a wire rack. Due to the amount of mixture you may need do multiple batches. These cookies make the perfect snack but can also make a nice gift if you package them up. Let me know what you think of them in the comments below!

Cookies to me are a very comfy snack, you cannot beat having a nice cookie in the evening with a glass of milk. These cookies I feel are perfect as they are not too sweet that they are sickly but at the same time they are very light.
Course: Dessert
Servings: 25 +
Ingredients
  • 150 g unsalted butter
  • 160 g Light Brown Muscovado Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 225 g Plain Flour
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 100-200 g Plain Chocolate Chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 190C, 170C if a fan oven or gas mark 5
  2. Line at least two/three baking trays with non-stick baking paper
  3. Beat the butter and brown sugar in a bowl until creamy (it works those arm muscles!!)
  4. Beat in the egg and the additional egg yolk
  5. Sieve in the flour and add the bicarbonate of soda and mix with a wooden spoon
  6. Once mixed add the chocolate chips and stir well
  7. Place teaspoon sized mounds of the mixture onto the baking tray (ensure they are well spaced apart)
  8. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes depending on the size, take them out when they are brown on the edges but slightly soft in the middle
  9. Leave these on the tray for a few minutes as they will harden and then place on cooling racks.

This Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe is somewhat adapted to other recipes I have seen online, taking peoples comments and past attempts and making some changes. Some recipes suggested the addition of granulated sugar and lowering the amount of brown sugar, I did however find these a little too sweet.

I left out the salt as never understood why it was added and didn’t have any vanilla essence so left this out as well 🙂 I found that the addition of the extra yolk helped to bind them a little more, giving them a great crunch when biting into them.

I did only add 100g of chocolate chips and even though every cookie had some, I would suggest adding the full 200 if you like more of them. You could even alternate it by adding other things in replace of the chips such as nuts, white chocolate fudge etc. This Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe is incredibly simple and takes very little time to do, yet the results taste amazing!
