Double Chocolate and Marshmallow Cookies

These are quite possibly the best cookies I’ve ever eaten. They’re rich, decadent and gooey, and we ate half of them straight out the tray before they even made it onto a plate (hence why there aren’t so many in the final pictures!)

This recipe makes quite a lot of cookies so you could cut it in half if you just wanted to make a few, although personally I’d make them all because they’re so good you won’t want to stop eating them.

You can use mini marshmallows instead of normal ones if you can’t be bothered to chop them up, although normal marshmallows are cheaper and I prefer them because you can use bigger pieces.

Tip: white chocolate would be great in these cookies, and would look pretty awesome too. You could also try them with dark chocolate, although that might make them too rich for some tastes.

Makes: around fifteen large cookies, or more if you made them smaller.

Cost per cookie: this depends on how many cookies you make but if you made fifteen cookies it would work out as £0.19 per cookie (price based on Tesco Value ingredients).

Ingredients:

  • 400g caster sugar
  • 280g butter
  • 250g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 65g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g milk chocolate
  • 100g marshmallows

Method

1) Preheat the oven to 180C.

2) Cream together the butter and sugar.

5) Break the chocolate into pieces and cut the marshmallows up (I cut each marshmallow into around 5 pieces, but you can do them bigger or smaller if you want to).

6) Stir the chocolate and marshmallows through the mixture, spreading them as evenly as you can.

7) Spoon the mixture onto a baking tray, making sure the cookies are well spread out – mine weren’t spread out enough and turned into a giant cookie traybake. Use greaseproof paper if you had it as these are quite sticky and could be a little tricky to get off the tray otherwise!

8) Bake in the oven for around 12-15 minutes, until the cookies are hard on top (the rest will harden up when they cool) and the marshmallow is starting to go golden. Try not to eat them all at once!
