I feel like it’s a blast from my past today. When I was little I would go to the mall with my mom and sometimes she would buy me chocolate marshmallow cookies. It was my favorite. The cookie was huge, really soft and it had a huge marsh covering the whole thing and then loaded with chocolate frosting. Last year I decided to recreate that cookie and although I can hardly finish one since the marsh is too sugary now my husband loves them and I still think they are pretty darn good too.

This time for some reason the marshmallow wouldn’t press out across the cookie, but just pretend it did! If I we are in a bind I will use a chocolate cake mix and make cake mix cookies instead of homemade.

Are Marshmallow Gluten Free?

Jet-Puffed (Kraft) marshmallows should be gluten-free, as are some store brands.

But read the label first!

Are Marshmallows Dairy Free?

Marshmallows are completely dairy free.

Marshmallows are made from sugar, water and gelatin.

Can Marshmallows Be Frozen?

Marshmallows can be frozen for up to 3 months.

They should be frozen in a heavy duty freezer bag.
