Craving cookies with a lot of gooey junk in them? One of my favourite treats are marshmallows. I love them plain or in brownies, ice cream and cookies. You name it!
I wanted to pop some mini's tonight and decided it's probably better if I baked them into cookies. It's safer. Especially when I'm watching my weight. 🤣
I came up with this recipe, making the cookie base not as sweet as the junk I'm putting into it. Bake them for 8 minutes, if you prefer a doughy texture. Bake them for 12 minutes, if you prefer a toasty crunchy cookie. Either way they are a chunk of oooey gooey junk heaven. YUM!
