The other day I was wandering around the grocery store trying to find what I can’t at this moment remember, but I came across a beautiful bag of peppermint marshmallows.
I had to have them. No clue what I was going to do with them, but had to have them.
So I mulled over some ideas of what to make with the sweet little puffs of peppermint and came up with the following.
These are super easy and pretty yummy, if I say so myself!
1 bag peppermint marshmallows
1 package chocolate cookie dough
1 can chocolate frosting
Candy cane or peppermint stick
Bake cookies according to package directions.(You could also make your own cookies from scratch. I cut the purchased cookie dough into thirds because I didn’t want the cookie to be too thick).
Just before they are done, while the insides are still gooey, place a marshmallow on top and return for oven until marshmallow starts to melt. While the marshmallows are turning molten, put frosting into a microwave safe pitcher and nuke for about 15 seconds or until thin. Do not over cook or it will taste scorched and believe me – that is a horridly nasty flavor.
It will only take a minute or two for the marshmallows to be ready to take out of the oven. When they are, pour on the frosting and sprinkle with crushed candy cane or peppermint. Let cool then roll your eyes in bliss as you take a bite. Enjoy!
