Last weekend we had a neighborhood BBQ and of course, it’ was my job to bring dessert. It’ was 80F degrees, so I didn’t want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen baking. So, I decided to make cookies… but not just any old plain boring cookies would do.
I recently bought a couple containers of the KRAFT Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits. If you aren’t familiar with these, they are super mini marshmallows, the kind you’d find in your packets of hot chocolate. And ya know what? They are PERFECT for cookies! (PS: They’re perfect for topping cupcakes with too!) I made S’mores cookies a few days ago and today I’m making a Mocha Mallow cookie with these mini bits of heaven!
I started with a recipe that I’ve seen on several blogs from Annie’s Eats to My Baking Addiction and then put my personal spin on them. I added the mallow bits, reduced the chocolate chips, added espresso powder and vanilla. Adding the Mallow Bits was my hubby’s idea. I think he’s a genius. The original recipes for this cookie also wanted me to make them giant cookies… but I needed to feed a bunch of people, so I decided to make them a bit smaller so the batter would go further.
They turned out pretty darn yummy.
PS… For the I also made M&M Cookie Bars (which you should make too… cause UHM YUMMMM!)
