HOW TO MAKE MISSISSIPPI MUD COOKIES
These Mississippi Mud Cookies are definitely a tribute to the Mississippi Mud Pie as I know it. Mississippi mud pie has chocolate (lots of it), marshmallows and chocolate sauce. That’s the only way I have had it.
Now close your eyes and imagine a chewy soft chocolate based cookie overflowing with marshmallows and drizzled chocolate sauce. If that sounds good, the real thing is even better, and its the perfect thing to giveaway this Christmas for your swaps! If you want some of this deliciousness, head over to Dixie Crystals and get the recipe HERE.
Mississippi Mud Cookies
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 pack mini marshmallows
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp whipping cream
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a mixer bowl, beat together butter and both sugars on high speed for 3-4 minutes until combined and fluffy.
- Add in egg and vanilla extract and continue to cream mixture.
- While it creams, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder in a separate bowl.
- Slow speed of mixer to low and slowly add in dry ingredients until well incorporated. Chill dough in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
- Once dough has chilled and become more stiff, use a tablespoon to scoop dough. Using your hands, shape dough into individual balls and place on baking sheet at least 1 inch apart.
- Bake for 11-13 minutes and remove pan from oven.
- Quickly add 2-3 mini marshmallows to each cookie, pressing down into the baked dough. Marshmallows will begin to melt on their own.
- Drizzle each cookie with 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of chocolate sauce and serve.
Just made these to take to a friend’s house tonight and they are delicious! So fudgy! I added some chocolate chips to the cookies because more chocolate never hurt! Just FYI, there are no directions for making the chocolate sauce in the recipe. I figured it out, but maybe a novice baker wouldn’t know what to do? Anyways, thanks for a great recipe!
