I’m a sucker for toasted marshmallows. Whenever I’m out of cookies in the house, I’ll grab a marshmallow and toast it right over my gas stove flame. Sometimes I’ll do it for my kids too, and then eat theirs.
Hey, it’s survival of the fittest at our house.
So when I set out to use a toasted marshmallow in cookie form, I knew it had to be the big, sturdy marshmallows. After a few
mistakes experiments, I realized the whole marshmallow was too much but cutting it in thirds worked perfectly. When I surrounded it with a cookie scented with malted milk, cocoa and a hint of cinnamon, I knew I had a winner. The kids confirmed it, declaring these The Best Cookies for Santa.
p.s. I made these a little too big. I think they’re cuter when the cookie is just a little bigger than the marshmallow, so follow the instructions below for a smaller cookie.
