Before we talk about how amazing this chocolate marshmallow cookies are I have a funny story to tell. I was at my son’s high school basketball game the other day and was passing around these chocolate chocolate chip cookies that I had made. When I offered a cookie to the grandpa of one of the boys on the team, he politely passed and told me he didn’t like chocolate.
I think my jaw hit the floor. I couldn’t believe it, how could anyone not like chocolate? I told him he was CRAZY!!
You see I absolutely LOVE chocolate! I crave it! I adore it! I have it stashed throughout my house. I can’t live without it. Yes I am a chocolate addict, a chocoholic, a chocolate junkie, which is why I love these cookies. They are absolutely divine, they melt in your mouth and are completely scrumptious.
These are super easy to make and come together in a snap. The dough is super fudgy/sticky like so don’t be alarmed and think you’ve done something wrong.
Lineup of ingredients:
- butter flavor shortening (or butter)
- evaporated milk
- baking soda
- salt large marshmallows
- powdered sugar
- evaporated milk
There are no eggs in this recipe . . . just didn’t want you to think I left them out.
CAN I USE BUTTER INSTEAD OF SHORTENING?
I know there are shortening haters out there, and I get it. However, when it comes to baking, sometimes shortening is the better option for some recipes. This recipe specifically calls for shortening, but I have made them with butter as well. Verdict. . . there isn’t a huge difference, but I do like the texture of the cookies made with the shortening just slightly better than the cookies made with butter. So if you’re a shortening naysayer, then absolutely use butter. Either way these cookies are delicious!Print
