Marshmallow-Stuffed Campfire Cookies

114

I was reminded of how delicious stuffed cookies are when I made these Nutella-Stuffed Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies last week, and didn’t want the fun to stop. My coworkers really love marshmallows, so I decided to make a campfire-themed cookie, and stuff them with marshmallows! Yummmmm. There is something so beautiful about a melted marshmallow oozing out a cookie 😀

Cookie Dough:

  • 1 1/2 cups browned butter, cooled
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 bag of large marshmallows

Yield: 32 large cookies

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Bake time: 10 minutes per batch

Mix the softened butter, sugar, and brown sugar using a hand mixer. Stir in the eggs, one at a time. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking soda & salt. Add the graham cracker crumbs, and mix together. Add the flour and graham cracker crumb to the wet ingredients in about 3 increments, scrapping the bowl down in between. Add vanilla, and greek yogurt, and mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.  Refrigerate the dough for about 30 minutes. While refrigerating the dough, preheat the oven to 350. Using hands, roll the large marshmallows into a ball. I also experimented and stuffed some of the cookies with caramel and chocolate. Line cookie baking sheets with parchment paper. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough into balls. Flatten the dough in your hand and put the rolled marshmallow into the dough. Fully wrap the cookie dough around the marshmallow, and place about 2 inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, and remove from oven. Let the cookie cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Some tips on making these cookies…Really do take the time to chill the dough. It helps the flavors develop, and will minimize the spread of the cookie (leading to chewy, thick cookies). Also make sure that the marshmallow is FULLY covered by dough. If there are any cracks, the marshmallow will seep all over the pan while baking, leaving no delicious, fluffy filling. Last but not least, be sure to follow the cardinal rule of all cookies…underbake. Just when the cookie looks like its starting to brown, remove it from the oven. It will continue to bake once out the oven, and will set as it cools. Follow these tips, and you will end up with soft, chewy, marshmallowy cookies 😀
