Ingredients for Marshmallow Chocolate Cookies

  • All-Purpose Flour: As always, baking is a science, so measure your flour correctly. This is the main component of the dry ingredients giving the cookie its structure and consistency.
  • Cocoa Powder: Use Dutch Processed cocoa powder for this recipe, as it has an overall darker color, and a milder flavor, and reacts well with the baking powder. It also dissolves easier in water.
  • Baking Powder: This leavening agent helps to create a light and airy cookie. Don’t swap this for baking soda because the baking soda won’t react well with the Dutch Processed cocoa!
  • Salted Butter, Softened: Take the butter out about 30 minutes ahead of time so it has a chance to come to room temperature. It’s much easier to cream and become light and fluffy if it’s not cold!
  • Granulated Sugar & Brown Sugar: My daughter decided to use both granulated sugar and brown sugar. They both add sweetness, mainly because the cocoa is unsweetened, but the brown sugar adds extra moisture as well as a beautiful caramel flavor.
  • Egg: This helps to bind the cookie dough so that once they’re all baked, they don’t fall apart.
  • Water: Helps to thin out the cookie dough and helps to dissolve the cocoa powder.
  • Vanilla Extract: A lovely warming delicious flavor enhancer.
  • Chocolate Chips: We like to use semi-sweet chocolate chips so we don’t overload these cookies with any extra sweetness.
  • Mini Marshmallows: Little gooey bits are found in every bite! Use mini so that you can fit a lot in one cookie!
  • Sea Salt: This finishing touch adds an extra bit of salt to the sweet decadence. Sea salt and chocolate are like a match made in heaven!

Step 6: Use a small ice cream scoop or cookie scoop to scoop out the dough, place each dough ball onto the prepared parchment-lined baking sheet and press 3 mini marshmallows on top. Repeat with the remaining dough and arrange the balls in a single layer with space in between each one for a bit of spreading.

Step 8:
Finally, bake in a preheated 350-degree oven on the middle rack for 9-10 minutes. Once out of the oven, immediately sprinkle each cookie with a bit of flaked sea salt and then allow it to cool for a few minutes.

Now, if you want the marshmallows to have a golden burnt color broil on high for few seconds or use a torch to roast the marshmallows to give them that fire roasted color. Let cool and enjoy!

Enjoy your freshly baked marshmallow chocolate cookies with a cold glass of milk, a warm cup of tea, or a bowl of vanilla ice cream!


Recipe Tips

  • You can use milk chocolate or dark chocolate chips if you prefer. You can even swap them with white chocolate chips, chocolate chunks, or peanut butter chips instead!
  • To keep your cookies nice and chewy, you want them slightly underdone. They will be slightly crispy on the outside and soft in the center but will continue to bake and set as they cool on the baking sheet.
  • A cookie scoop is highly recommended. It’s the best way to ensure all the cookies are the same size which makes it easier to bake them all evenly.
  • A silicone baking mat or parchment paper is the best way to bake these cookies without having them stick. The marshmallows and melted chocolate can become quite sticky once melted.


Do I need to use a stand mixer?

No! You can just as easily use an electric hand mixer or mix it completely by hand. If you’re not used to the stand mixer, you may want to mix by hand to prevent any over mixing or overworking of the dough.

Should I chill the dough?

It’s not necessary at all, however, there are a couple of issues that may come up where it might be a good idea. The first is if your butter is too soft or almost melted.


This will cause your cookies to spread too much and become flat. So, before you scoop the dough, place it in the fridge to chill for a few minutes.


The other reason is if your dough is too sticky. Placing it into the fridge will make it easier to work with.
