One thing is always guaranteed when we visit my Grandma in Montana…there will always be chocolate marshmallow cookies in her freezer. Another thing that’s always guaranteed…they won’t last very long. Because they’re so dang good! Hands down these cookies are the family favorite. This recipe was originally shared in 2011, but we’ve added some new photos and a video! Sometimes it really helps to see how something is made in a video, and these cookies are one of those things.
I had to snap a photo of my mom’s old recipe card. Isn’t it so sweet? I love that it’s typed out and how the card has yellowed. You can tell that it’s been used a lot. I’m pretty sure both my mom and grandma have the recipe memorized by heart.
You’ll have to watch the video above to see how they’re made, but I wanted to take a few step by step photos to give you an idea of how these cookies come together.
Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies
- 1 Cup crisco
- 1 Cup sugar plus 1/2 Cup sugar for rolling
- 1/2 Cup brown sugar firmly packed
- 2 unbeaten eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/3 Cup semisweet chocolate chips melted
- 2 Cups flour
- 2/3 Cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 15 marshmallows cut in half
Preheat oven to 400.
Cut all the marshmallows in half with a clean pair of scissors, and chill them in the freezer while preparing the cookie dough.
Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
In a mixer, cream together the sugar, brown sugar and crisco.
Slowly add in the 2 unbeaten eggs one at a time.
Add in the vanilla. Mix together well.
Slowly add in the dry ingredients.
In a small glass dish, melt the semisweet chocolate chips in the microwave. Add this melted chocolate into the cookie dough
Mix the cookie dough together well.
Working one cookie at a time, pinch out about a tablespoon size ball of cookie dough.
Flatten the cookie dough in your hand and place one half piece of marshmallow in the center.
Wrap the cookie dough around the marshmallow, sealing it into a small cookie dough ball.
Roll the cookie dough ball around in a small bowl of sugar (about 1/2 cup of sugar), coating it with sugar on all sides.
Repeat these steps to make each cookie.
Place about 12 cookie dough balls on a cookie sheet.
Bake at 400 for 4 1/2 to 5 minutes. They only bake for a short time, so don't forget to set your oven timer. Remove from oven and let cool and enjoy!

That’s it! They bake for such a short time, so you’ll have to keep on eye on them in the oven. It’s better to under cook them than to over cook them. They freeze really well too. They’re such a good mix of salty sweet. I hope you try them!
