Rich chocolate and ooey-gooey marshmallows give these cookies their savory sweetness.

How to Make It

Step 1

Microwave semisweet chocolate morsels in a small microwave-safe glass bowl at HIGH 1 minute or until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds.

Step 2

Beat butter and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition. Beat in vanilla and melted chocolate.

Step 3

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually add to chocolate mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in chopped pecans and 1/2 cup milk chocolate morsels.

Step 4

Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Press 3 marshmallows into each portion of dough.

Step 5

Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks.

Just made these and they are delicious. I made 3 batches. I cooked most of them for 12 minutes, but maybe should have taken them out 30 seconds earlier. The marshmallows got very brown, almost burnt. I made one batch for 10 minutes, but the inside was still a bit too soft. I could have used another minute in the oven. I also made one batch accidentally with only semi sweet chocolate morsels, instead of using the milk chocolate morsels. They came out delicious as well. Maybe even better then with the milk chocolate morsels. I was able to make 31 cookies from each batch.

Did anyone chill the dough after it was mixed?

They taste delicious but they spread like crazy and the marshmallows melted into blobs. Wondering if (a) I should chill the dough for a few minutes before baking and/or (b) if I should put the marshmallows in during the last few minutes of baking instead of at the start?

Horrible mess. Nothing like the photo, these were pale Brown and ran together in the pan. Made 3.5 dozen but ended up with 4 large blobs. Sounds easy, looks good in photo, reality says that there are better ones or there.

Very good cookie! My man is a choco-holic, so it was a big hit with him. I think I might have put the marshmallows on too quick though. They ended up just melting into the cookie instead of looking all nice and toasted like in the picture.

I love to cook! I am not a baker. These however may change my role. I made them for a cookie exchange at Christmas and had a few extra for the family and neighbors. This is the only cookies I will ever bake! These are INCREDIBLE! Yum, if I can bake these anyone can. Happy Baking!

Made these cookies again last night. Always a hit! Great cookies for family/holiday gatherings. Also, I usually only use a half cup of nuts (one small bag), and it seems just fine to me.
