12 Days of Cookies, Day 12: Marshmallow Madness

So today is day 12th day of the 12 Days of Cookies. This means the series should technically be over, but it turns out that I have more recipes to share soooo the series will continue… woot woot! And, I saved some of the best for last so get excited!

Both of the recipes being featured this morning include marshmallows and I have a feeling they’ll have you wanting s’more. :)

Mallow lovers and peanut butter fanatics will rejoice when they see the combo that’s being created in Susan’s recipe below – scroll down to see what I mean…

Dreamy Marshmallow Squares

Original Post on The Great Balancing Act

  • 1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 (300 g) bag butterscotch chips
  • 1 (200 g) bag mini marshmallows


  1. Melt together butter, peanut butter, and butterscotch chips on very low heat until mixed, stirring constantly. Cool for a bit (so as not to melt the marshmallows).
  2. Stir in mini marshmallows.
  3. Pour in a greased 11″ x 13″ pan.
  4. Refrigerate and cut into small (1-1/2″) squares.

Sam’s S’more Cookies

Original Post on Sam Bock Illustration & Design


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup salted sweet butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 4 sheets reduced-fat honey graham crackers, crushed
  • 1/2 cup Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Chips
  • Mini-marshmallows (1 to top each cookie)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. In a stand mixer, add flour, butter, sugar, vanilla, baking soda, and egg yolk. Let mix until you achieve a breadcrumby consistency.
  3. Mix in crushed graham crackers. Batter should still resemble breadcrumbs, but will be able to mold into a ball.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Put batter in an airtight container and chill for at least thirty minutes.
  6. On a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, mold your batter into 1.5″ squares. Put in oven for 4 minutes.
  7. Remove cookies from oven, and place one mini-marshmallow on top of each cookie. Put back in the oven for 4 more minutes. The marshmallow tops will start to brown.
  8. Remove from oven and let sit for a minute on baking sheet, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Or eat gooey cookie immediately, if you are like me (i.e., super impatient and extra-hungry for cookies).

Enjoy your Thursday friends!
