Marshmallow and Chocolate Cookies

Vegan Marshmallow and Chocolate Cookies

We needed a new cookie in our house, and wanted marshmallows to fit into the mix. I love marshmallows, embarrassing to say. Toasted on a bonfire is best, naturally, but these cookies come a close second!  Add in some chocolate and its bliss.

 

Preheat oven to 170°C, 340°F

Prep time: 25 minutes

Cooking Time: 10-12 per sheet

Free From: Dairy, Egg, Nuts

Contains: Gluten, Soya (marshmallows),

Ingredients

3 cups plain flour

¾ cup Pure Sunflower margarine (or any dairy free)

1/3 cup Trex Vegetable Fat

1 cup caster sugar

¼ cup brown sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup desiccated coconut

1 cup vegan mini marshmallows – you can get them here: http://www.alternativestores.com/vegan-vegetarian-shopping/vegan-chocolate-and-sweets/vegetarian-vegan-marshmallows/mini-pink-and-white-vanilla-mallows-freedom.html

Or 1 cup mini marshmallows from major grocery outlets – most have animal gelatine in them but no dairy or egg. They all have soya though.

2/3 cup dark chocolate drops, beans or dairy free chocolate chips

3 tsp egg replacer, 6 tbsp. of water

 

Method

Cream the fats and sugars together until light and fluffy.

In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and coconut.

Whisk the egg replacer with the water until frothy and add to the flour mixture.

Using a mixer combine the flour mixture with the creamed sugar and margarine. You’ll get a thick dough.

Stir in the chocolate drops with a wooden spoon (obviously you can use dairy free chocolate chips) – I’m using chocolate drops as I can get them locally and I really like the dark chocolate flavour.

Stir in the marshmallows.

Cookie Dough

Drop a spoonful of the dough onto a lightly greased baking sheet and leave for a slightly rustic appearance. You can roll the dough into little balls and flatten slightly if you prefer a smoother cookie.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until light brown.

The marshmallows will melt on the inside, and get toasty and gooey on the top.

I wonder what would happen if I added this to ice cream?…hmmmm
