Do you have a microwave? You could heat the batch for a short time, until the marshmallows melt. Then stir the mix all together.

Without a microwave, try heating the pan of crumbs over a pan of boiling water. All you want to do is to heat until the marshmallows begin to melt.

Thanks I will go and try this! I was telling a neighbor and realized that I had changed the milk and used Soya milk so my grandson could eat these cookies. Do you think that could be an issue??

i do not think the change ibn milk will matter- sue is talking about double boil-- a bowl on a pan of simmering water- is that a easy thig ?? it should work fine :-)

i meant is it an easy thing for you- make sure the water doesn't come all the way to the bowl( bigger bowl than the pot)- does that make sense?? good luck-

Make sure to read the reviews since they are all over the map. This is really a cooked sugar recipe (like when making candy) and unfortunately vague cooking instructions (i.e. boil for 2 minuts) can yield in inconsistent results. Look for cooked sugar recipes that specify a temperature for best results.

The soy milk does change the recipe, but it isn't really that bad. I have not used cow's milk when making the recipe for quite some time. You might even think about adding a touch of extra butter or maybe even coconut oil to bind the cookies into a mass that you can then drop or roll into cookie shapes.

Thanks for all the help!! I used the double boiler method, thank goodness I mixed them in a metal bowl...lol. They just seem to get drier and break up, so I added more soya milk and a small amount of corn syrup. Finally got a liquid state and thinking about fudge and soft and hard boil stage, I cooked it for awhile on top of the boiling water. Took it off and cooled it for a bit before trying to make cookies as it seemed a bit too wet!! Finally, dropped spoonfuls on the parchment paper and they are sort of keeping their shape. They feel soft and gooey, but will let them cool and dry and hopefully they will be eatable!! I will let you know tomorrow. Thanks again for all the help! Merry Christmas to you and yours!
