3 nut butter chocolate cookies with marshmallow

The cookie monster is back! This is an absolutely delicious cookie which incorporates all of my favourite flavours. The base is a chocolate and 3 nut butter cookie with the addition of peanut butter chips and hidden marshmallows inside. I felt like baking cookies one evening and had a look in the pantry to see what was available and this is what I came up with. I overbaked my cookies a little but luckily the marshmallow was still ooey and gooey as you can see! It has a dark chocolate base paired with saltiness from the nut butter and peanut butter chips and sweetness of the marshmallows.

I'm sending this to the No Waste Food Challenge hosted by Elizabeth from Elizabeth's Kitchen Diary as I used up the end of a jar of 3 nut butter and opened packs of mini marshmallows and peanut butter chips.

 adding peanut butter chips 

 place a small scoop of cookie dough on a baking tray and flatten it. Top with mini marshmallows. 

 Cover with another flat disc of cookie dough and press together

Makes approximately 20 cookies of the size shown

113g butter
50g brown sugar
50g caster sugar
125g three nut butter (use any nut butter as an alternative)
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
125g plain flour
50g cocoa powder
100g peanut butter chips (you can also use white chocolate chips or plain chocolate chips)
approximately 100 mini marshmallows (I used about 4-5 per cookie) 

  • Preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the nut butter and egg.
  • Stir in the flour, cocoa powder and bicarbonate of soda.
  • Finally add the peanut butter chips.
  • Place a small scoop of cookie dough on the lined baking tray and flatten with your palm to form a disc. Repeat with the rest of the cookie dough.
  • Place 4-5 mini marshmallows on top of each flattened cookie dough. Cover with another piece of cookie dough and press to seal the edges.
  • The cookies look quite large so allow enough space for spreading between each cookie before baking.
  • Bake for approximately 10 minutes.
  • The cookies will still be soft when you take them out of the oven but will harden as they cool on the sheet.
