These chocolate marshmallow cookies will remind you of the joys of roasting marshmallows over a campfire – all in one bite!
I blame my husband for introducing the kids to ramen. Although I have boosted ramen to gourmet level with my spicy pork ramen, the kids still love the cheap instant stuff.
I do blame myself for introducing these sinfully sweet concoctions to my kids. Root beer float? Yeah, that was me. Kit kat ice cream cake? Me again. Kool aid cake? Um… me.
The joys and ease of a chocolate mug cake? Guilty. Me.
So it’s no surprise that I introduced these double chocolate marshmallow cookies to my kids, as well. Guilty as charged.
Why you have to make this recipe
My kids love s’mores. It’s one of the rites of summer, toasting marshmallows over a campfire. Because of their love of all things chocolatey and gooey, I made s’mores on a stick and even a s’mores smoothie.
So why not add marshmallow goodness to cookies?
This is not a chocolate chip cookie recipe with marshmallows thrown in there for good measure. The base of the cookie has cocoa powder, as well, making this a double chocolate chip cookie recipe.
So gooey, chocolate base cookie studded with chocolate chips (or chunks in this case) and marshmallows – what’s not to love?
Ingredients you need
- Cocoa powder: For deep chocolate flavor, choose a high quality cocoa powder. You can also use dark cocoa powder, too.
- Chocolate chips: You can use milk chocolate, bittersweet, semisweet or dark chocolate chips
- Marshmallows: You can use the mini marshmallows or cut the larger marshmallows into 4 pieces.
- Pantry staples: all purpose flour, brown sugar (light or dark), salt, vanilla extract
- Whole wheat goodness: I add some whole wheat flour and wheat bran to these cookies. It not only gives you fiber and nutrients, but also adds a bit of nuttiness to the flavor.
- Refrigerator staples: butter, egg
1. In a large bowl, whisk together both flours, the wheat bran, cocoa powder and salt. Set aside.
2. Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, cream brown sugar and butter together until smooth.
3. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Mix to combine.
4. Slowly add in the flour mixture into the butter mixture until just blended.
5. Gently stir the marshmallows and chocolate chips in by hand.
6. Using two small spoons, scoop out 2 TBS of dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silpat mat. Keep dough 2-inches apart on the baking sheet.
7. Bake for 17-20 minutes at 350ºF, until edges are firm and marshmallows are browned.
8. Remove from oven and let cookies rest on the cookie sheet for 3 minutes. Then transfer to a cooling rack until cool completely, about 10 minutes.

How funny about your kids 🙂 These cookies are wonderful!
How old are they?It seems that your kids are quite stubborn,hahah.!!Why don't you give them a reward every time they do a good thing.Like cleaning their rooms or doing house hold chores.
PS: I love the cookies.!
ah – so funny ! I can relate to a lot of that already and my little one is only 2.3/4yo. Don't forget the 3/4 Mummy ! He can't wait to be three….
Mine also ADORES chocolate cookies and has been pestering the life out me for day to make him some. I can see cookies on the menu this weekend.
Nice to find your blog…
I have two kids myself 5 and 3 and I can relate to some of your stories and made me smile. I also can see what I "look forward to"… I'm glad you enjoyed Japanese food. Hehe. The chocolate and marshmallow cookies! YUM!
Cute story about the kiddos! These cookies look great, I love marshmallows in cookies. One of my favorite cookies is cornflake and marshmallow!
How good do these look? Sort of like rocky road…love gooey marhmallows. Add a cold glass of milk and this is a perfect snack!!
I think it's universal with kids. When we go to a restaurant or park and see kids behave as badly as ours like to do, it makes my hubby and I breathe a sigh of relief!
Oh my gosh, your kids could be mine. The way you wrote that, about how they behave when you ask them to do something, it's my kids EXACTLY! And my kids would adore these cookies, too!
This was a really fun post to read! I love that you said tofu was chicken! how funny! marshmallows and chocolate – win win.
Fun family times and delicious summertime cookies!
I helped out w/ my nephew's Grad night over the weekend and they had a karaoke stage — there was not one song I heard from this decade; all 80's & 90's music selections. Sing as loud as you can!!!
