Anyone in my family should immediately recognize these cookies, as they were a favorite in our house. Soft chocolate cookies topped with marshmallows during the last few minutes of baking until soft and covered in melted chocolate. Simple, fun, and pretty darn tasty.
I think this is the first time I’ve baked them since I’ve left home, which is such a shame. I browse cookbooks, magazines, and the internet looking for great recipes while this one sat right under my nose. Of course, I already knew this recipe was great, I just needed a little reminding.
With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend, I’ve been thinking about my Mom and comforting memories from my childhood. I’m the oldest of seven children, so things were pretty busy. My Mom always worked hard to provide us with great home-cooked meals, but homemade treats just for the fun of it were a little more rare, and special.
Which made them memorable. Like strawberry shortcake for breakfast the morning I flew to NYC on a school choir trip, or ice cream cookie sandwiches on a hot summer evening to eat outside after dinner (because it was too hot inside), or chocolate covered chocolate marshmallow cookies baked just because she knew we liked them.
I will always remember these cookies fondly, and I hope that someday my children will too. Now that I’ve remembered how much I love them, I think I’ll be churning a lot more out over the years.
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. Thanks for a great recipe!
