There’s a cookie link party going on today over at Bake at 350! Cookies galore over there!
If you visit me here in this little corner of the blog-world, you know how much I adore Marshmallow Cream, or as The Husband calls it…Crack Cream.(Because it’s addictive …like crack)
Anyhoo, I thought I might start a little something fun during the holidays…Marshmallow Monday’s!
Doesn’t that sound … yumalicious, for lack of a better word.
I’m starting really slow today. This recipe is from Southern Living and has only 3 tiny marshmallows per cookie. We’re taking baby steps. I don’t want to scare anyone off.
These are Mississippi Mud Cookies…and WOW! They are just scrumptious. A thin crispy layer and an almost fuggy inside…and th
en there’s the toasted marshmallows on top! Good grief. Ya, may want to save this recipe for Christmas Eve cookies for Santa.
They are an “Editors Choice” in my Southern Living Cookbook, which means I’m not the only one singing their praises. And, Hallelujah! I AM singing their praises!
