Chocolate and Marshmallow Mud Cookies













Back to baking. I made these to give as an early birthday present for a coworker. Previously, I've made similar chocolate marshmallow cookies, but I say these definitely beat those out. I've also made some marshmallow blondies, and last week I made a sad rendition of those. Sad how so? I didn't have butterscotch on hand, and instead of being creative, I simply omitted it. They did not taste half as good, so from now on, I'm stocking up on butterscotch.
