I discovered this recipe in Food Network Magazine (a Christmas gift that I LOVE!). I saw the picture one day and made these cookies the next. They are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! As you’re mixing the dough you’ll probably think to yourself “There is no WAY I can possibly mix in any more ingredients,” but keep going. You’ll be tired but happy. Oh — and you may need to double the chocolaty topping and/or use more half and half. I found it a bit too thick to drizzle … more like “plop.”

Monster Marshmellow Cookies from the Bartholomew Buffet - bbuffet.com

2 C. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 sticks butter, softened
1 C. granulated sugar
1 C. packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 T. vanilla extract
2 C. quick-cooking oats
1 1/4 C. crispy rice cereal
1 C. milk chocolate chips
1 C. coarsely chopped pecans
1 C. miniature marshmallows

TOPPING:
1/2 C. milk chocolate chips
1/2 C. miniature marshmallows
2 1/2 tsp. half-and-half
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1/3 C. finely chopped pecans

  1. Making the cookies: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.  Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl, beat the butter and both sugars with a mixer on medium-high speed until fluffy.  Beat in the eggs one at a time on medium speed, then beat in the vanilla.  Add the four mixture and beat on low speed until combined.
  2. Stir the oats, cereal, chocolate chips, pecans and marshmallows into the dough with a wooden spoon.  Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, about 3 inches apart. Bake the cookies in batches until golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to racks to cool.
  3. Making the topping: Combine the chocolate chips, marshmallows, half-and-half and cayenne pepper in a saucepan over medium heat; cook, stirring, until the mixture is smooth, about 5 minutes.  Remove from the heat. Stir in the pecans.  Drizzle the mixture over the cookies and let set, about 4 hours.
