Hello, world. We are back after a minor set back due to Heather and I both coming down with the Flu but I have a great new recipe for you and lots more to come!
I love tinkering around in the kitchen and coming up with new cookie recipes and that is how these wonderful Marshmallow Fudge Cookies came to be. They were such a hit that the cookies were gobbled up nearly instantly, so I figured I should share this one with all of you so you can impress your friends with these soft, gooey chocolate cookies.
This Christmas I was fortunate enough to join my girlfriend, Heather, and her family for their annual Christmas baking day and we made all kinds of goodies. From decorated sugar cookies to almond toffee. One of the amazing sweets I learned how to make was marshmallow creme fudge and it was so delicious it inspired me to transform that idea into a cookie and the results were fantastic! I hope you enjoy these as much as my friends and I did!
Marshmallow Fudge Cookies
1 7oz jar Marshmallow Creme
1 cup Butter softened
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 ea Egg
1/2 cup Brown Sugar firmly packed
2 cups Flour
3/4 cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 cup Semi-sweet Chocolate ChipsOptional: Powdered Sugar to dust them when they are cooled.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together the marshmallow creme, butter and sugar, then add vanilla and egg and stir until just combined. In a separate bowl, sift or mix the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking powder. Add dry ingredients and chocolate chips to wet ingredients and stir. Place rounded balls one inch apart on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
Let them cool on the pan for a few minutes before moving or they may fall apart! They should be fudgy and delicious and will stay that way for several days! If you want to dust them with powdered sugar, be sure to wait until they have cooled a bit or the sugar will melt. Enjoy!
