There are certain partners in life that just “go” together. Peanut butter and jelly. Peas and carrots. In my opinion, chocolate and marshmallows are one of those partnerships I love. Whether they unite in between crisp graham crackers in the form of s’mores or they meld with the warmth of a cup of hot chocolate it’s always sweet deliciousness. These Mississippi Mud Cookies are no exception. I adore Mississippi mud pie. Crumbly cookie crust, chocolate cake, chocolate pudding and fluffy piles of whipped cream on top. What’s not to like?

These Mississippi mud cookies get the classic double dose of chocolate, just like the pie thanks to a chocolate cookie base and the addition of chocolate chips. But my favorite part is my interpretation of the whipped cream topping. Marshmallows, of course! Warm, chewy chocolate cookies brimming with melty toasted marshmallows.  I’ve had Mississippi mud pies with pecans in the crust as well so why not add those to the mix too? This sounds like a fine cookie indeed. I know you’ll agree.
