Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies Recipe

Soft and delicious, this Chocolate Marshmallow Cookie recipe will be a hit in your home! I was in the mood for baking. I had a bit of extra time on my hands so I could even whip up a cookie recipe that had multiple parts. Moments like that don’t always happen so I grabbed the opportunity with both hands! Grabbing my Into Our Second Century School Sisters of Saint Francis cookbook that I picked up six or seven years ago from Greene’s Exit 215 Antique Mall in Rensselaer, Indiana, I found the marshmallow cookie recipe. There are only a handful of cookbooks that I trust completely. This is that kind. I know that anything I choose from it will turn out exactly like it reads.

Remembering how much we enjoyed Chocolate Marshmallow Bars before, I figured this would go over well. There aren’t any complicated instructions nor are there difficult to find ingredients. This is the kind of recipe where you already have everything you need on hand. No time will be wasted by single item grocery store runs! Instead, you can do what you like best: get in the kitchen and make some awesome chocolate marshmallow cookies.

These nuns can cook! These cookies lasted three days in our home. Three days. That has to be some kind of record! We munched on them on our way home from the Indy Fuel hockey game. The perfect after hockey snack! They are so soft. It might seem as though maybe there is too much chocolate but I tell you what, you have ¬†got to make the recipe “as is” for the first time. I know these will be a huge hit in your house like they were in mine. If you like soft and chocolately cookies, that is!
