Chocolate Marshmallow Pillows

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Rollin in the Dough

These cookies are so yummy and fun! The marshmallow stays soft and the rest is chewy, sweet, chocolate deliciousness. They can be made so many different ways too, use chocolate chip cookie dough instead or maybe even peanut butter! Spray kitchen shears lightly with cooking spray to make cutting marshmallows easy. Based on recipe I found at,so far it has 443 ratings!

Ohhh, these are yummy. My DH doesn't like nuts but he went gaga over these! The marshmallow stays soft and the cookie is chewy. I couldn't find the Betty Crocker double choc chunk so I used Pillsbury's exact version, Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies (it really isn't dark choc, it's semi-sweet) turned out great.
