Our family decided to spark creativity with a simple cookie recipe and not only did we have a lot of fun but these marshmallow toffee cookies were a hit!
Are Marshmallows Dairy Free?
Marshmallows are made up of basically just sugar, water and gelatin, which makes them completely dairy-free.
One simple recipe, endless possibilities. I love that about cooking and baking. Really it’s the key to becoming a great cook. Take a great recipe and try different variations. We teamed up with Country Crock® whose buttery spreads are creamy and perfect for cookie making as a family.
We not only got creative as a family but we are a big fan of getting to know our kids’ friends and creating a place where they can all have fun in a safe, happy environment so we let the girls all come over to a little baking challenge. The new school year inevitably brings on cooler, fall temperatures. When the chillier days call for indoor activities, the Country Crock® Make It YoursTM cookie recipe is an easy way to have fun and spark creativity with your kids and their friends.
Cade and I kept it simple, chocolate, milk chocolate toffee bits and on a whim marshmallow which we cooked the cookies long enough that it kind of caramelized inside of the cookie. It’s awesome.
The girls on the other hand, well we had a lot of sprinkles, food coloring, m&m’s, graham crackers and even this super cute halloween version. And get this, she used 8 green and 3 pink from our Neon food coloring and it turned the cookies orange!
I wouldn’t have even thought to try that! Add some Halloween sprinkles and you’ve got yourself a super cute cookie.
What is the Best Way to Store Cookies?
To prevent cookies from becoming stale, cover them with plastic wrap or keep in an airtight container when not serving.

Will Cookies be OK Without Vanilla?
Yes! You can make cookies without vanilla extract.
The only purpose of vanilla extract is to add vanilla flavor to the cookies, so they absolutely can be made without vanilla extract.

Hands down one of my all time favorite cookies, ever, ever, ever. There’s just something so awesome about that toffee, melty chocolate and juicy craisins.
Whatever happened to this pie is entirely my fault. At first it was just going to be a cookie pie with chocolate but then there were the marshmallows and the reese’s and oh sweet mercy it’s good!
