Chocolate Marshmallow Chubbies are a cross between a brownie and a cookie and are full of ooey gooey chocolate marshmallow deliciousness!
The inspiration for this recipe actually came from one of my favorite TV shows…..The Goldbergs. It’s about a family set in 1980 something and it’s hilarious. In one of the last episodes of this past season they mentioned Chocolate Marshmallow Chubbies as being their family’s favorite cookie. Of course, I immediately went online only to not find a recipe! I knew I had to set out to create my own.
It took quite a few rounds of testing to get this cookie just right. It’s like a cookie, but with the texture of a fudgey brownie, with bits of melted chocolate and marshmallow mixed throughout. It’s absolutely heavenly!
For a taller cookie, you’ll want to cool off the dough and let the butter in it harden up before baking. You can bake them immediately, but they will spread out and be a thinner cookie. For best results, take the time to chill the cookie before baking.
I also did one other thing I bit different than most cookie recipe. I froze my marshmallows! This kept them from spreading and melting in the cookie too much. I pulled them out of the freezer just before placing into my dough. If you choose to freeze your marshmallows like I did, spread them out on a small tray or plate rather than freezing them all in a clump.
