I agree that this cookie is unbelievably delicious. We put the marshmellows in the freezer for a couple of hours before putting them into the batter. It keeps the cookies from looking too mutated.

I was disappointed with this. First they wouldn't cook, then they burnt, all the marshmellows stuck to the tin foil, EVEN with the cooking spray. By the time I figured out the exact timing for cooking this it was the last batch and I was very bummed. BUT if you feel like eating a good cookie that is very messy and a big pain this is it!!

I followed the advice of using parchment paper and decreasing the temperature to 350 degrees and baked them for 9 minutes. They turned out fabulous! My kids love them! This is a keeper! Thank you for sharing this wonderful cookie recipe!

The cookies are messy and tend to fall apart easily. To avoid this, try rolling the dough in your hands to create a ball. Then place on the cookie sheet. They will come out a lot neater this way. I also added an extra 2 toblespoons of cocoa to the mixture...MMMM MMMM...They are the best-tasting cookies I've had in a long time! Well worth the mess!!

I read Michelle's review & followed her suggestion of rolling the dough into 1" balls...this worked well. I flattened them slightly w/ a cup dipped in cocoa. I think next time I make these I won't mix the marshmallows into the dough...I will roll the dough around a mini marshmallow. Very tasty cookie!

Use tin foil sprayed with vegtable spray instead of coating a cookie sheet. They make a mess.

I didn't have mini marshmallows, only regular size. I cut the mini's up but it was disaster when they baked. I would not recommend using regular size marshmallows.

Tasty and mellow. The marshmallows were sticky on the cookie sheet sometimes.
