Mississippi Mud Cookies

DSC08770 2

I made homemade marshmallows the other day, and ate my first s'more. Oh my. There goes the diet! I loved them soo much, I ate like 5 of them, and they were huge!

I've also joined this new blogging group, the secret recipe club, headed by Amanda of Amanda's Cookin. We're allotted a different blog each month, which is kept a secret till posting date, I got Amanda's blog itself :) Its a lot of fun, go to her blog if you want to register.

So anyway, I was looking for a recipe in her blog, plus I wanted to make something with the marshmallows. And I found this cookie! It was perfect, and it looked gorgeous! It tastes gorgeous too, the almost brownie-ish cookie, with the stringy, gooey marshmallows. Ah yum! Do try them, its a very easy recipe, came together in like 10 minutes!

Mississippi Mud Cookies
Recipe by Amanda via Megan
Makes about 24

1 12-oz bag semisweet chocolate chips, separated
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. miniature marshmallows

Instructions -
  1. Melt 1 cup [170 g / 6 oz] of the chocolate chips, set aside to come to room temp.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until fluffy and creamy. Add in the eggs and vanilla, beating between each addition. Stir in the cooled chocolate till well incorporated.
  4. Now add in the flour, mix just until incorporated. Stir in the remaining chocolate chips, refigerate dough for an hour.
  5. To bake, preheat oven to 350 F [180 C], and drop tablespoon sized heaps on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Dot the top with mini marshmallows, and bake for about 12 minutes, till edges feel done. Cool on sheet for about 5 minutes, then move to cookie rack.
