Look at me with a blog series. Two posts count as a series, right? Basically I’m not creative enough to come up with my own recipes so I turn to Pinterest to tap into other people’s originality. Last week my office building had a bake sale to support breast cancer. I don’t bake very often, so Pinterest to the rescue.
I was able to find this gem of a recipe for chocolate marshmallow cookies.
The recipe was pretty easy to follow and the cookies bake up quickly. However, my batches did not come out nearly as pretty.
It seems that I would either wrap too little cookie dough around the marshmallow causing marshmallow to ooze out everywhere, or I would wrap too much dough and have really tall cookie mounds. Taste-wise, the cookies were a little too sweet for me, but I also realize I shouldn’t be shocked by the sweetness of a recipe for chocolate cookies wrapped around marshmallows then rolled in sugar. However, my coworkers seemed to really enjoy them, and I got some great compliments on the recipe.
These might be good with a light sprinkle of sea salt to balance out the sweetness and to give them a s’mores feel.
What is your biggest Pinterest success?
