I’ve been putting these off/I wasn’t going to do them because I don’t eat marshmallows. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m vegetarian, so I don’t eat gelatin. Surprise! They sell vegan marshmallows. We’re back in business.
These are in the Kids Cookies section, so they’re easy, right? Let’s see.
I’ve said this before. I LOVE my KitchenAid mixer. However, it’s near impossible to beat 3 tablespoons of butter with 3 tablespoons of brown sugar. There’s not enough in the bowl! I had to scrape it down 80 times before it was complete.
Oh, this looks so appetizing.
Okay, this is workable now.
So far, so good.
Still pretty easy. Still qualifying as kids cookies.
My marshmallows were small, so I decided to use 2 halves on each one.
Okay, 2 minutes was NOT enough time for them to become soft enough to not spring back. I think it’s maybe because they’re vegan. It took more like 8 minutes.
Or they sometimes stuck to the spatula.
If you think those look like little butt prints, you’re right. I hired gnomes to come sit on them because it was easier than doing it with that spatula.
This chocolate was THICK and the cookies were pretty big. This kept happening:
Plop. Look at that mess.
They looked better now. Do you feel dizzy when you look at the straight-down angled photos? I am kinda dizzy.
I got: 9 (?)
Start time: 2:45
End time: 4:15 (1 hour, 30 minutes)
Martha’s estimated time: 45 minutes
What did I learn?
- These are no longer kids cookies. Sure, they want to EAT them, but do you know a kid who has patience to spend 1.5 hours baking?
- These got heavy when the chocolate was on them. That’s why I kept dropping them back into the pan.
What do I need to learn?
- Did they taste like Moon Pies? I don’t remember what those taste like.
These were decent, but I probably won’t make them again. I’m going to go eat the rest of the bag of marshmallows now.
