In short, these cookies are simple, gooey chocolate chip cookies packed with chocolate chips and mini marshmallows for that extra burst of flavor and added texture.

Cookies keep best in an airtight container on the counter since the fridge tends to dry them out quickly. However, you can enjoy them for up to 5 days if they last that long!

Can I Freeze Marshmallow Chocolate Chip Cookies?

To freeze Marshmallow Chocolate Cookies, it is always a good idea to flash-freeze them on a cookie tray first, so they don’t stick together. Then, transfer them to an airtight container to enjoy within three months. Unwrap cookies immediately after taking them out of the freezer. Thaw at room temperature and enjoy!

You can also freeze the cookie dough! Place dollops of measured cookie dough onto a cookie sheet lined with a piece of parchment paper. Place tray in freezer for 30 minutes. Remove from tray and place in a freezer storage bag.

Tips for Making Marshmallow Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • As with any cookies, using a portion scoop makes your cookies uniform in size and helps with even baking.
  • Letting your ingredients sit out at room temperature helps them to blend more quickly for better cookies, especially butter and eggs.
  • If you only have large marshmallows, cut them into quarter pieces and use two per cookie.

Most likely, you already have the ingredients to make these delicious treats. There are no specialty ingredients, and this recipe is super easy to whip together. That is my type of recipe! But before you make Marshmallow Chocolate Chip Cookies, there are a few things to keep in mind.

  • These Marshmallow Chocolate Chip Cookies are easy to customize to fit your family’s needs. Add in graham cracker pieces, pecans, walnuts, sprinkles, more chocolate (or whatever else you want to add!)
  • Please resist the urge to remove the cookies from the baking pan too quickly, or they may break. 
  • Lightly sprinkle some coarse sea salt on the cookies after baking for a mix of sweet and savory tastes.

  • Butter: Use salted or unsalted. I ALWAYS use salted butter. So if you do as well, omit the salt in the recipe if you don’t want them too salty.
  • Sugar: I used a mixture of brown and white sugar. I love the added hint of molasses in the brown sugar for my chocolate chip cookies, but if you are out of one or the other, feel free to substitute with granulated sugar.
  • Vanilla extract: It is best to use PURE vanilla, but if you only have an imitation on hand, feel free to use that.

Marshmallow Chocolate Chip Cookies

The best chocolate chip cookie. Gooey in the middle with the taste of melted marshmallow.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • ¾ cup butter room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg and 1 yolk room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup mini marshmallows


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Brown the butter over medium heat. Stir constantly until it turns golden brown. Do NOT leave it on the stove, because it can easily get burned. Once it is ready, let it cool.
  3. In a large bowl, add the butter and both sugars. Mix until combined.
  4. Add the eggs and vanilla. Beat on LOW until fluffy.
  5. Mix in the dry ingredients slowly, until everything comes together.
    VERY IMPORTANT: Do not over mix or your cookies will not be soft.
    Fold in the chocolate chips using a spatula.
  6. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Use a small cookie scoop to make the balls of dough. Place your thumb in the middle to form a cavity and place 2 mini marshmallows inside. Roll together until marshmallows are completely covered.
  8. Place them on the lined baking pan around 2 inches apart.
  9. Bake for 8 minutes or until the edges look lightly golden, remove from the oven and gently press 1 or 2 more mini marshmallows into the top of each cookie. Place the cookies back in the oven for another minute or two minutes
  10. Do not overcook the cookies. It is better that they are a bit undercooked if it's the case. Let them cool.


If you add additional marshmallows to the cookies, you will need to watch them closely so that they don't melt into a big mess.
