Fall in love with these Raspberry Marshmallow Cookies aka a raspberry white chocolate cookie stuffed with a gooey marshmallow centre. Who can say no to that?
WHY YOU WILL LOVE THIS RECIPE
Gooey Marshmallow Centre | On their own these raspberry and white chocolate cookies are delicious but when you add a gooey marshmallow centre they become irresistible.
Perfect Flavour Combination | White chocolate and Raspberry are two flavours that work perfectly together. The sharp raspberry tang cuts into the sweetness of the white chocolate giving a wonderful balance.
Quick, Easy and Delicious | Cookies are one of the best quick and easy bakes, not to mention they are also utterly delicious and a firm favourite in many households. These cookies take less than 30 minutes to make, meaning you could be eating one of them 30 minutes from now.
WHAT ARE RASPBERRY MARSHMALLOW COOKIES?
These Raspberry Marshmallow Cookies are made using my favourite basic cookie dough recipe as the base. Fresh raspberries and white chocolate are then folding into the mixture and a marshmallow is stuck into the centre of each cookie dough ball before baking.
As the cookie bakes, the marshmallow puffs up (and sometimes spills out) to give you the gooiest, chewiest, most delicious cookie.
HOW TO MAKE RASPBERRY MARSHMALLOW COOKIES?
Cookies are a great bake because they’re one of the bake you’re most likely to have all the ingredients for in your cupboards. For this recipe there are a just a few extra ingredients you’ll need to make sure you have available.
Raspberries | You can use fresh or frozen raspberries for this recipe but I find that adding in fresh raspberries adds to the colour and provides a nice ripple effect. You will find however that the mixture is a little sticker than if you were to fold through frozen raspberries so the choice is yours.
White Chocolate | A combination of white chocolate chips and chunks are my preferred for this recipe. The chips are added to the mixture and folded through and then then chunks are stuck on top of each cookie dough ball just before baking to create little chocolate puddles.
Marshmallows | One single large marshmallow into the centre of each cookie is all you need for this recipe. I don’t recommend adding in mini marshmallows for this bake as I haven’t tested it with this cookie dough base. A single large marshmallow is perfect for getting that super gooey centre.
Make the cookie dough base | To make the cookie dough base cream together the butter and sugars until soft and fluffy. Beat in the egg then fold through both self raising and plain flour and pink food colouring until the mixture is almost combined.
Colouring cookie dough | For most of my recipes I recommend a powdered food colouring as they don’t alter the consistency of your bake like a liquid would do and mix more evenly than a gel does. Food powders can be added with the dry ingredients so I add them with the flour in cookies. However, if you are using a liquid or gel I recommend adding it when you beat in the egg for an even colour.
Add white chocolate chips and raspberries | When you have your cookie dough base add the chocolate chips and mix them through until evenly combined. Follow with the raspberries but fold them through gently to avoid them getting too crushed.
Stuff each cookie with a marshmallow | Scoop out the cookie dough into even sized balls using an ice cream scoop then make an intend into the centre of the cookie dough ball and stuff the marshmallow into it before folding the dough over. Push some white chocolate chunks into the top and they’re ready to bake straight away.
Why are we not chilling these cookies before baking? These cookies use my “no chill” cookie dough base recipe so they don’t need to be chilled to avoid over spreading. If you want to chill them you can but note that they might not spread as much as shown in the images.
Bake | Lay around 6 cookies dough balls out onto a flat baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes until the edges are crisp.
TOOLS YOU WILL NEED
Large mixing bowl | As all the ingredients come together you’ll want a large mixing bowl for easy and even mixing.
Electric Hand Whisk or Stand Mixer | These make light work of creaming the butter and sugar together quickly and if using your standing mixer you’ll have your hands free for preparing the other ingredients.
Ice Cream Scoop | The best tool for quickly portioned and evenly sized cookies
Flat Baking Sheets | You’ll need to spread the cookies out enough to allow them to spread a little so ideally if you want to make these all at once then you’ll need two sheets. However if you want to bake half a batch and freeze the rest for later then one sheet should be plenty.
Wire Cooling Rack | Once the cookies are baked they’ll need a few minutes to cool on the tray before being moved across to a wire cooling rack to cool properly. You’ll likely want to eat one a little warm when the marshmallow is still a little warm, and in this case they won’t need to cool down for long but do be careful not to burn yourself and the marshmallow will be very hot at first. Also these cookies are great cold too as the marshmallow will always remain gooey.
