Marshmallow-filled Chocolate Cookies

Marshmallow Cookies

Chocolate “Oreo Thins” cookies, stuffed with a marshmallow and covered in dark chocolate- such a delicious combination!

I haven’t given up making Oreo Thins less healthy! Just a few weeks ago, I posted a recipe using the vanilla Oreo Thins- stuffed with key lime pie (see it here). Today, I bring you chocolate Oreo Thins stuffed with marshmallows and covered in chocolate. They remind me of those yummy pinwheel cookies- the kind with cookie and marshmallow all swirled together!

Marshmallow Cookies4Yep. You will want to try these- promise! They are even better tasting than they look!

Here is how we put these together: (printable recipe)

INGREDIENTS: (makes 20 cookies)

  • 1 box of Oreo Thins in chocolate
  • 20 marshmallows (regular size)
  • 2 bags of Wilton’s candy melts in dark chocolate
  • 1/4 cup of Wilton’s candy melts in white chocolate

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees
  • Set half of the Oreo Thins cookies on a cookie sheet that will fit in your freezer, set aside.
  • Place a sheet of parchment paper on a second small cookie sheet.
  • Set 20 marshmallows out on paper and place in oven for 3 to 4 minutes. Until they become soft- but not toasted.
  • Remove from oven and allow marshmallows to cool to a point where you can pick them up.
  • Gently use a knife or a skewer to pierce the bottom of the marshmallow (allowing some of the melted part to come out), and set this on top of an Oreo on the 1st cookie sheet.
  • Gently pierce the top of the marshmallow and set a second Oreo on it, gently pushing the melted marshmallow out to the edges (it will go a little beyond the edges and this is ok!

  • Continue with this process until all cookies have a marshmallow sandwiched between them.
  • Freeze for about 30 minutes- until marshmallow is hard.
  • Melt Candy Melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between until melted and smooth.
  • Taking only 2-3 cookies out of the freezer at a time, dip them into the melted chocolate, covering top and sides.
  • Quickly remove on a fork, and tap on edge of bowl to remove excess chocolate.
  • Gently slide off fork onto parchment paper to harden.
  • Melt white Candy Melts in the same manner as the chocolate ones. Place in a small zip-top bag, clip a corner, and drizzle over finished cookies.
  • Allow these to harden up before serving.
  • Enjoy!

Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies

My thoughts: I was originally going to do these with graham crackers- like a s’mores cookie- but when I realized how well those Oreo Thins work for dipping, I went with those instead- and I’m glad I did! These are absolutely delicious. I really, really loved them! A unique addition to any cookie tray! In fact, I made cookie plates with my last 3 recipes here on Easybaked. I baked them all over one weekend and brought these to my neighbors and friends. Who says you can only do this at Christmas??? 🙂

Caramel Pecan Marshmallow Pops

Posted on



Marshmallow Turtle Pops!

  Big marshmallows covered in creamy caramel and chocolate are dipped in pecans to make an incredibly decadent treat!

These are unbelievably good.  I was visiting my friend Andreya in San Diego last weekend and we passed a store while window shopping in La Jolla that had all sorts of dipped marshmallows.  I started craving them and had to try this.   These are like yummy caramel apples- but with a soft marshmallow inside, instead of an apple.  If you are looking for a really unique treat that is easy to put together, this is your recipe!!!  I couldn’t believe how easy and yummy  these were.

Caramel Pecan Dipped Marshmallows

Here’s the recipe: (printable version)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 bags of jumbo marshmallows (24 marshmallows)
  • 24 lollipop sticks
  • 32 Kraft caramels, unwrapped
  • 1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 bag of dark chocolate Wilton’s candy melts
  • 2 cups of chopped pecans

DIRECTIONS:

  • Set marshmallows out on parchment paper and stick one lollipop stick into the flat side of each one.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt together caramels, butter and sweetened condensed milk, stirring constantly, until completely smooth (takes about 5 minutes)
  • Pour caramel mixture into a bowl.
  • Using stick, carefully dip each marshmallow into caramel, coating it to the top.  Gently tap stick against side of bowl to remove excess caramel and then slide bottom of marshmallow along bowl’s edge to remove most of caramel.  (It is ok if you remove it down to the marshmallow- the chocolate will cover this up!
  • Place upright on a sheet of parchment paper and cool.
  • Place chocolate candy melts into a bowl, and melt them in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until completely melted and smooth.
  • Lay a fresh sheet of parchment paper out before beginning next step.
  • Place pecans in a small bowl.
  • Gently peel a marshmallow away from the parchment paper. This is a little tricky, as it will still be a bit gooey.  I held the stick, lifted, and peeled the paper away from the marshmallow.
  • Dip bottom of marshmallow into melted chocolate and slide bottom along edge of bowl to remove excess.
  • Dip bottom of coated marshmallow into pecans and set on fresh parchment paper to harden.

Once these are hardened up, you can serve them up on a pretty plate, or wrap them in cello bags to use as gifts or favors.
If you aren’t serving them right away, be sure to cover them so the marshmallows don’t harden up.

Caramel Pecan Marshmallow Pops!

My thoughts: These are a recipe I will make again.  I had fun putting them together and everyone who tried them asked me to make them again.  Easy. Yummy. Beautiful.  My kind of recipe!  Enjoy!! ~r
