Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 4 oz (¾ cup) chopped dark chocolate (I use 60%)
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows (*see notes)

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or Silpats.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer (or a large bowl with a hand mixer), cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes.
  • Add eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth.
  • In a separate medium bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
  • With mixer on low, gradually mix in the dry ingredients until just combined, taking care not to over-mix.
  • Gently fold in chopped dark chocolate and mini marshmallows.
  • Drop about 1 ½ Tbsps of cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets (I like to use a cookie scoop), placing dough about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake cookies for 8-11 minutes, until cookies are just turning golden. Let cool on the pan for a couple minutes before moving to wire racks to cool completely. 

Notes

  • For best results and to avoid too much melting, place mini marshmallows in the freezer for about 1 hour before adding to cookie dough.
