"The ultimate carving cookie!! I found this on another site and made a few small changes and this quickly became my favorite cookie. CAUTION: You may need to double the recipe unless you have enough will power to not taste the dough!!"
Serving Size: 1 (37 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 30
"I too cut back on the chips and marshmallows; but I also added a half teaspoon of baking powder and I used a 1/4 cup cocoa and 1 bag of hot cocoa mix. This kept them from spreading and caused them to puff up with a slightly crunchy outside and chewy inside."
"Use parchment paper. Leave space between cookies. They are much better the next day after refrigeration. Even better , not gooey, eaten frozen!"
"I had wonderful results when cutting the white sugar to 1/4 cup, and both the marshmallows and chocolate chips to 1 cup each. I also used parchment paper on the cookie sheets to avoid the hard removal process of cooked and oozed marshmallows."
"This is the WORST recipe I have EVER tried. These cookies spread out OUTRAGEOUSLY into huge mud puddle looking blobs, and didn't keep a shape whatsoever. I'm guessing 2 cups of marshmallows is too much since they melted out everywhere."
"Amazing :D Just made a batch today with my 3 year old."
"I am a novice baker and had help from my 3 year old son, these cookies turned out fab - I cut down the amount of choc chips and marshmallows by about half. I would agree with the other reviewer to only leave them on the baking tray for about a minute then transfer to a wire rack to completely cool, otherwise the molten marshmallow starts to weld itself to the tray. Will definitely make these again - thanks :)"
"Just leave them on the cookie sheet to cool a bit and then you will have one deli-sh cookie!"
"I reduced the marshmallows to one cup- two seemed a bit much for my tastes. I had no problem with them sticking- the key is to generously grease the cookie sheet (I used cooking spray) and take them off the sheet as soon as they are firm enough to handle- about one minute out of the oven. They were also formed nicely- not sure if that is due to using less marshmallows or not. I will be making these again!"
"I will never make these cookies again. The marshmallows melted into globs of caramelized goo that had to be chiseled off of the cookie sheet, thus crumbling what remaining cookie there was. Out of the entire recipe, I probably got only about a dozen edible cookies. Five thumbs down."
"It's not my favorite cookie recipe--the marshmallows make it feel like you're biting into cloud or something else insubstantial. I'd make it with no marshmallows and extra chocolate chips. Yummm....
My 3-year-old daughter, however, LOVES these cookies and we make them whenever I have extra marshmallows around to use them up. She's forever asking to add marshmallows to everything we bake now, she's so enamored with these."
"These are delicious....but hard to keep formed and stick to the cookie sheets! I suggest parchment paper."
"These are so ooey gooey delicious! We loved them. They were simple to put together and used stuff that I mainly keep on hand which is nice, when I want to throw together something sweet but don't want to make a big production out of it! Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2009!"
"These turned out awesome!! Gooey and delicious....and rich!!! These are destined to become a family favorite!"
"These cookies have a special name in my house....Ooey Gooey Bundles of Joy! They are fantastic!!! Even my DH, the pickiest person I know, can't stop eatting them. Made for PAC Spring 2009"
