Need a tasty make-ahead dessert to take to a cookout or an after-school snack for your little ones? Make these delicious treats and keep your guests or kids happy.

Ingredients

  • 1¼  Cup  all-purpose flour
  • ½  Teaspoon  baking soda
  • ½  Teaspoon  salt
  • ½  Cup  unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ½  Cup  brown sugar
  • ¼  Cup  sugar
  • egg
  • ½  Teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 1/2  Cup  chocolate chips
  • large marshmallows, halved
  • chocolate hazelnut spread

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars until pale and fluffy. Add eggs and mix to combine, scraping sides with a rubber spatula as needed. Add vanilla and beat to incorporate. On lowest setting, add flour mixture. Mix just to combine, then fold in chocolate chips.

Using a heaping tablespoon, drop dough onto greased cookie sheets, allowing a few inches between each. Gently flatten each cookie, and make a small indentation with your fingers in each. Add a dollop of chocolate hazelnut spread, then top with a halved marshmallow.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes, switching pan position and rotating halfway through. Cookies are done when marshmallows are golden and edges of cookies have turned light brown. Transfer to a wire rack. Cool. Serve.

Marshmallow Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Marshmallow Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
