These Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Marshmallow Cookies are so ooey-gooey delicious! They have a hidden marshmallow inside of a thick chocolate chip cookie topped with sweet cream cheese frosting!

 

These cookies should basically be their own food group they are so good.  I know…in a perfect world, right?

 

The unfortunate thing about these cookies is if I eat too many, my jeans get all angry at me.

Blah.

 

Annnnd my husband found a pair of my “super stretch” jeans on the floor and picked them up and was able to squeeze into them, which he thought was hilarious, and I thought it was maybe the least funny thing to ever happen in history.

 

So yes, these cookies sosososososo good.  But I only ate a few. Because jeans.

However, I encourage you to make and eat the entire batch. Because it’s been proven that you will appear skinnier if you surround yourself with less-skinny people.

And it’s officially-official that I am not a nice friend.

 

On a side note, I think “hidden marshmallows” should be a thing in all food. Like a scavenger hunt or something.

I made the chocolate chip cookie base a little different than usual.  I wanted the cookie to be thick, but not cakey.

 

I added in some corn starch to help…

I had a helper making these cookies!  I always seem to have lots of helpers when the chocolate chips come out…

Here’s the dough…I used a cookie scoop when I portioned them out on the baking sheet…

While the cookies are baking cut large marshmallows in half.

And when the cookies are *almost done, pull them out and gently press them into the cookie…

You want the cookies to be slightly golden at the edges, but not cooked all the way through.  This will help them stay soft and chewy, but keep the height and thickness.

Bake them for a few more minutes, until they puff up, but not until they get toasty.

And allow them to cool completely before frosting.

 

The frosting is a simple cream cheese frosting.  So yummy and creamy!

When the cookies are cooled go ahead and spread a heaping tablespoon amount on each cookie, covering the marshmallow completely.

That really is the least funny thing ever! Shame on your hubby! I think he should live a cookie-free life as punishment for a few days.

You just let me know when that scavenger hunt starts, and I’m all over it!

I love your creativity, Shelly! Tight jeans be damned. I’d have a hard time resisting these if they were in my house. That’s what stretchy pants are for!

My husband put on my jeans once. On accident. He just thought they were his. I kind of hate him.

Love your cookies though!
