Chewy Chocolate M&M and Marshmallow Cookies Recipe.

For once we have managed to avoid all tasks, groups and responsibilities and finally enjoy a much needed chilled out Sunday. One thing I always loved doing on a Sunday with my nan as a kid was baking and it's something I really need to try to do more of with my own kids, so today as we had the chance, we decided to whip up a batch of delicious cookies. These M&M and marshmallow cookies are the ultimate sweet treat when it comes to cookies so we thought we would share the recipe with you. 

With crispy edges and a chewy centre these cookies are definitely Moorish! We have added M&M chocolates into ours but if you're aren't a fan of these or have another favourite chocolate you would love to add then just substitute these for your items and add them in at the same time. 

Ingredients -

250g Plain flour
170g Unsalted butter (melted) 
220g Brown sugar
100g Caster Sugar
1 whole egg
1 egg yolk
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp Vanilla extract.
+ Your choice of filling we chose Chocolate M&Ms and marshmallows, but you could choose anything you like! 

Method -
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F or 165 degrees C. Grease or line a baking tray with grease-proof paper
  • In a bowl sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl, then add the salt and set aside.
  • In another bowl mix together the melted butter, brown sugar and caster sugar thoroughly. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy (we used an electric whisk for this)
  •  Now mix in the reserved sifted ingredients gradually until mixed together. Now Stir in your choice of filling this is where we added our m&ms and marshmallows (stir these in by hand using a large wooden spoon or spatula).
  • Now evenly divide the mixture into balls (this mix should make around 15 cookies) and these squash the cookie dough balls slightly so they make a thick disc shape on the tray.
  • Bake the cookies for around 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly browned. Allow to cool on baking trays before transferring to a wire rack to completely cool as these will still be quite soft when they first come out of the oven.

All that is left to do is enjoy. These cookies are delicious both warm and cold (if eating warm be sure to leave them to cool a little so that they firm up first). You can store them in any airtight container for several days (if they last that long!)

Do let us know if you have a go at the recipe and let us know what you decide to put in yours, we love hearing all of the different flavour combinations people love in their cookies, I think we might try honeycomb cookies next!
