Chocolate Marshmallow Puffs

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Soft, chocolate puffs with real marshmallows inside ... covered in sugar. They stay moist if you keep them in a cookie can with cellophane, cutting off all possible ways of air getting in.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • Put marshmallows in the freezer for a couple of hours.
  • In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, salt, cocoa, and baking soda. In a separate bowl, cream together the shortening and both sugars. Blend in unbeaten eggs and vanilla. Beat well.
  • Stir in flour mixture and blend thoroughly.
  • Stick bowl in fridge; until dough is hardened.
  • Shape 1 teaspoon sized piece of dough around each marshmallow, seal well. Roll in sugar.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) on greased sheet for 5 to 7 minutes, or until cookies crack. Cool for about 2 minutes before removing from cookie sheet.
