Although, the creamy chips and chocolatey flavor you cannot beat either. They are super easy and quick to make. Best part, these chocolate marshmallow cookies are totally unique and totally worth every bite.

To make this recipe you will need

HOW TO MAKE MARSHMALLOW COOKIES

- while its mixing add in the flour
ADD IN YOUR MIX-INS
Add in your mini-marshmallows and chocolate chips
TIP: Don’t mix the marshmallows too much. Just lightly incorporate the chips and marshmallows.
TRY using peanut butter or butterscotch chip in this recipe! they are delicious and it makes it more like a rocky road cookie.
ADDING MARSHMALLOW FLUFF
For a little extra chewy marshmallowness you can add some marshmallow fluff. At this point just stir it in with a spatula.
HOW BIG DO I MAKE THE COOKIES
These cookie do best in about 1.5 tbs scoops. Scoop the balls and put them in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
REFRIGERATE YOUR COOKIE DOUGH
You will want to refrigerate this cookie dough. Chilling the dough with the marshmallows allows the marshmallow sugars not to melt as fast. It also helps the cookies to stay a little more fluffy rather than flat. The flatter the cookies are the more chances the marshmallows will over melt.
BAKE YOUR COOKIES
After your dough is chilled you can bake them! When baking these cookies they do best to keep in a ball. Don’t flatten them out. Bake them just till the edges are set.
MAKE REINDEER COOKIES
These chocolate cookies can be transformed into the cutest reindeer cookies!!
You will need
- red m&m’s or another red candy.
- candy eyes
when the cookies are right out of the oven press the pretzels in first. Then add the nose and eyes.
its important to add the pretzels when the cookies are hot.
Let cool. They make the perfect addition to treat plates and cookie exchanges you take to friends during the holiday season!
