So after my first failed attempt on making marshmallow cookies (they turned out very dry and the marshmallow hardened like honeycomb) I decided to look for recipes for brownie cookies and then add the marshmallows during the last couple of minutes of baking. This time I made 2 batches, one with one marshmallow in the middle and quite chunky and the other with smaller pieces of marshmallows and spread out thinner. The thinner one is my preferred option as it turned out softer compared to the chunkier one.

These will definitely satisfy your chocolate craving!

Photos were taken under really bad kitchen lighting at night so excuse my images...


140g butter
170g of caster sugar
180g all purpose flour
6 heaped tbs of unsweetened cocoa powder
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
50g of semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used 40g of 70% dark chocolate which I cut into smaller chunks)
Marshmallows ( as much or as little as you want)


1. Preheat oven to 170 degC

2. Cut the marshmallows and set aside to add on top of the cookies.

3. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy with an electric mixer. Add the egg and vanilla essence and mix further.

4. Sieve the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt and continue to mix until it forms a thick creamed mixture (I used a rice paddle to mix mine as the paddle is harder than a spatula and I find it easier to mix the mixture)

5. Mix in the chocolate chips.

6. Roll them into balls and press lightly onto parchment paper lined baking tray to flatten them a little.

7. Bake for 6minutes and then take out to quickly add the marshmallows on top. Put back in the oven to bake a further 2-3minutes.

8. Cookies will come out soft so leave to cool a little before transferring them on to cooling racks.

The cookies look so much more appetising in natural daylight!! I'm going to be having mine with some nice cup of caramel flavour Mauritian tea.
