Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: Butterscotch flavor + chocolate + marshmallows = heaven.
Texture: The cookies are soft, moist, and chewy with extra gooeyness from the chopped chocolate and extra chewiness from the marshmallows.
Ease: Easy, especially if you have an stand mixer.
Appearance: The bits of marshmallow and chocolate bar topping these cookies is probably the best part.
Pros: A ridiculously good twist on chocolate chip cookies. Plus they stay soft and yummy for days after being baked.
Cons: None at all.
Would I make this again? Yes!

If you know anything about me, then you know cookies will always be near and dear to my heart. I mean, I’ve written two books on the subject.

Because truly, sometimes there’s nothing better to satisfy a sweet craving than one or two (or a dozen) cookies and a tall glass of cold milk. Cookies and milk also happen to pair perfectly with your latest Netflix binge, or whatever trashy reality TV show is on at the moment. Guilty pleasure perfection!

Let me tell you, I was happily surprised by how fantastic these cookies are. I thought the best part would be the cuteness factor but it turns out they taste even better than they look. The marshmallows on top are fun but they add more serious chewy gooey goodness than I thought possible. You will love these cookies, your family will love them, your friends will love them. Unless of course you’re not into sweets or don’t like chocolate. In which case, we can’t be friends.

Kidding. Kind of.

What to do if your cookies end up like flat puddles?

That’s a complaint I hear from many of you, and it happens to the best of us. If you tend to have cookies that spread too flat while baking, I have a few tips for you. First of all, always bake off a test batch of just a few cookies to see how they turn out. Yes, it takes extra time. But it’s worth it if you can prevent your entire dough from getting ruined.

Second, if your first batch spreads too thin, it’s time to get COLD. Freezing cold. Pop your balls of cookie dough into the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes then place them directly into the oven. The cold helps prevent spreading. Too much spreading is often due to the dough being too warm or too ‘wet.’ You can also add a few extra tablespoons of flour to the dough to get thicker cookies.
