Today I am sharing my mother-in-law’s chocolate marshmallow cookies recipe. These are really soft, chewy and so moist! You can actually substitute the white/enriched flour for freshly ground hard white wheat. If you use freshly ground hard red wheat I am afraid they would be dry and crumbly. Today I made the exact recipe of my mother-in-law’s, except I used butter instead of shortening.
You start with the thick cookie batter:
The next step after baking the above dough 8 minutes…add three miniature marshmallows on each cookie and bake an additional 2 minutes.
The Best Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies
- ½ cup softened butter one cube
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 cups white flour or freshly ground hard white wheat
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa
- ½ cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 Miniature marshmallows per cookie or ½ large marshmallow per cookie
Cream the butter, sugar, and egg. Add the remaining ingredients (not the marshmallows) and blend until smooth. The batter will be thick. Drop by teaspoons onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes. Pull the pan out of the oven and carefully put three miniature marshmallows on each cookie gently, pressing them into the cookie. Bake an additional 2 minutes. Remove the oven and cool completely. Frost with your favorite chocolate cream cheese frosting.
