These cookies taste great and are very easy to throw together. The only down side is that the marshmellows melt away in the oven. Try placing the marshmellows on top immediately after the cookies come out of the oven. Enjoy! Read More

These are pretty yummy cookies. I used the recommended 1/2 cup white and 1/2 cup brown sugar. I also added about a half a package of instant chocolate pudding to ensure that they would be nice and chewy. I rolled the dough into balls around a mini marshmallow and baked them that way. When they came out of the oven I immediately topped them with a marshmallow which melted nicely. Didn't really remind me of Rocky Road anything not sure what it is missing but still good! Read More

This is a great recipe!! I changed 2 things: 1) I used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar in place of all white and 2) I stirred the marshmallows into the batter. I spread mine in a BAR pan and baked for about 15 minutes. The marshmallows "toasted" just like roasting them on a campfire.:) Read More

I have made this multiple times and they have always been great but difficult to assembe (the dough is very stick making it difficult to put the marshmellows inside. If found that if I add the melted chocolate when it is still hot the dough does not get as sticky they turn out just as well the prep time is cut in half. I also added about a cup of chocolate chips to this and it was great! Read More

These cookies are nice but we probably won't be running to make them again. Like another reviewer we sort of felt something was missing. They look pretty with the browned marshmallow tops but in the end they're not out of this world special. The only thing I did differently was cut the sugar by HALF like another reviewer. They were still extremely sweet so I really recommend cutting the sugar down by at least half. Read More

I think this is the lost recipe I've been looking for...my girlfriend in high school introduced it to me and her family put one marshmallow on top to cook 5-7 min and then placed another on top of that and baked it again for 1-2 min to melt. I loved the melted marshmallow part and would always add 2 to make the total 3. It looks like my cookies were a bit thinner than the picture and always tender/chewy and moist! Thank you for posting your recipe...ahhh the memories! I can't wait to try them again! Read More
