12 Days of Cookies, Day 12: Marshmallow Madness

by on December 14, 2011

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…

Another tasty treat with only 4 ingredients – yes please!

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.

Next up- Sam’s S’more cookies! I’m not sure you can get much better than s’mores cookies, but as it turns out, it does get better because Sam is actually holding a giveaway on her blog to go along with this cookie recipe – click over to check out the giveaway and enter to win!


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!
