Pumpkin Spice Marshmallow Cookies


These are going to be your new favorite holiday cookie!! Pumpkin Spice Marshmallow cookies with only 4 ingredients and a cream cheese frosting! ohsweetbasil.com


I am going to be so bold as to say that this right here, even if it isn’t the most elaborate or beautiful cookie you’ve ever seen, is hands down the cookie of the holiday season. Seriously. If there is only one cookie you make all through the holidays let it be these pumpkin spice marshmallow cookies. And if you desperately need chocolate you can have these browned butter nutella and dulce de leche sea salt chocolate chip cookies (try saying that 5 times fast) or these browned butter white chocolate snickerdoodles. But first, please make these.

These may have pumpkin spice marshmallows (which I found at Walmart) but trust me, adults will love them just as much as kids. My gosh they are delicious.  I mean, soft, gooey, warm, spiced deliciousness with cream cheese frosting on top? For heaven’s sake! When I was little I was obsessed with these awesome chocolate marshmallow cookies at the mall, and I still think they are pretty bomb diggity, but good mercy these ones take the cake! Literally too, as they use a spice cake mix. I know, I could have done a from scratch cookie, but these ones are just so yummy and so much faster.

Plus spice cakes are like all over the place at this time of year so it’s so easy to just grab and go. I resist fall and winter for the first month or two and then finally I wrap my little arms around it and embrace the heck out of the gorgeous fall leaves, over sized sweaters and gorgeous boots. This time of year really is so cozy. And a mug of cocoa and these cookies make that freezing cold wind all the less important. Now I just need a good book to read while I nibble…

  1. Thinking about making these but wondering if anyone has ever used regular marshmallows? I’m guessing they would be good too….?

  2. Would it be OK to substitute applesauce for the oil?

  3. I just bought the pumpkin spice mallow s looked for a recipe, and found this. Can I substitute yellow cake mix? And maybe add some pumpkin into the batter? It happens I have yellow cake mix not the other one. …

    • You could use pumpkin pie spice, but I’d worry about adding pumpkin as the cookies will have a new texture, but hey, try it out! It could be awesome!

      • I just bought the spice cake mix, so sticking with original recipe. Will make later today with my son. Looks nice and easy and fast. I will comment on how they come out and post pics on instagram under robinmommy and on Facebook.

      • Oh man, beware, I ate so many of them!

      • I made them yesterday, they are amazing! So delicious! I used the spice cake mix and store bought cream cheese frosting. The 3 layers are luscious. So easy to make too. The one thing I learned from batch #1 to batch #2 was to press the mallows down into the cookie when adding, so that way they are contained and don’t ooze over the sides. Will post pictures publicly on Facebook under Robin M Berman (Boca Raton) and instar am if you want to see.

      • Awesome! Yes, tag me on instagram with @ohsweetbasil and #ohsweetbasil and I’d love to see!

  5. How do you make pumpkin spice marshmallows?

  6. The ingredients say to use boxed cake mix, but isn’t cake mix much too liquid-y to use as cookie dough or am I missing something? I really want to make these, but I’m not sure how to make cookie dough out of cake mix. Thanks, these look beautiful though!

  7. If I make these today will they be ok to serve tomorrow? I just want to make sure they are still gooey and have the same texture. Thanks!

  20. Oh my, these look fantastic! Is it difficult to frost over the marshmallows? They seem super ooey gooey in the pics so I’m curious how you covered them without making a big ol’ mess.

    • By allowing them to cool a little the marshmallows are a little more sturdy, but I also glob a big amount on top, spread it and remove any excess so I’m not pushing down so hard.

  21. that is a clever use of the pumpkin marshmallows. the cookies look great!
