Monster Marshmallow Cookies

This morning I made the Monster Marshmallow Cookies from Food Network Magazine. If you haven’t seen the recipe yet, it’s one of the most creative and imaginative contest winners I’ve seen this year. Interestingly, the category in which it won was not cookies, but rather Food Network Magazine’s “Secret Ingredient” contest where they give you an ingredient (in this case, marshmallows) and you have to come up with a recipe that’s creative and that people might actually make. This one’s definitely tempting!

At first glance, a marshmallow cookie might not seem that innovative, but if you read the ingredients and technique, you’ll see that this one is. The creator, Paula Marchesi , even managed to incorporate cayenne pepper

As soon as the magazine posts the recipe I’ll add a link. As of this writing, I couldn’t find it on-line anywhere and since it’s hot off the press I’ll wait for it to get around a bit or see if I can get permission.

Updated:  The link has been added above.  The magazine is worth buying, though. It’s light and entertaining without being hokey — kind of a cross between a mainstream feature magazine and food magazine with focus on Food TV celebrities. Plus they give you a little booklet with 50 recipes in each issue.

Anyway, I do apologize for not posting the recipe yet. If you absolutely have to have it now, though (say your have marshmallows, rice krispies, cayenne, oats and a big chocolate craving), email me.

    At some point I definitely want that recipe but I can wait. Without any marshmallows my rice krispies, cayenne, and oats will have to wait until another day anyway. Thanks for the heads up about that magazine. I’ve heard of it but haven’t paid any attention to it.

    LOL “Click here for a world of disappointment” Notice I clicked, despite your warning! I’m with Sue, the recipe sounds interesting, but I can wait. I have a head cold anyway, so I probably shouldn’t be baking anything for anyone.

    Sue, I try not to post photos without recipes but I couldn’t wait! I have typed it up the adapted version for those who need it right away.

    Jennifer, maybe I should change it back. I figured “world of disappointment” was overly dramatic for not being able to get a cookie recipe. Maybe “click here for slight disappointment” would be more appropriate?

    When I saw world of disappointment I assumed the cookies were a dud!
    Anyways, I’ve been meaning to tell you that I like your new look, now that I’m used to it.

    I’ve been tempted to buy this magazine but I’ve been worried it would be just one big advertisement for the Food Network and would feature the food celebs I least like. These cookies may just push me to pick up an issue.

    Karen, now that I know people actually read those “continue reading” tags, I might as well change them all to something entertaining. Glad you like the new look. I just switched themes and this new one has more options. Also, my search box works now.

    Jen, they feature a pretty good cross-section of their talent. For every celeb you don’t like, there’s probably one you do. For instance, in this issue there is a two page fold with 12 deviled eggs, split. Each photo represents a different recipe from a different celeb so you can have fun comparing, oh, Tyler Florence’s Lobster Deviled Eggs to Melissa d’Arabian’s Ranch Deviled Eggs. And I have to say, Claire Robinson’s Spanish Deviled Eggs with smoked paprika on them are looking pretty good to me right now…..

    Anna, love your website! It’s my favorite! My husband yells at me because he complains about the constant lack of computer paper in the printer. I’m always printing your recipes! Would love the recipe as I have all the ingredients!! Thanks!!!

    Girlfriend, I could take a photo and show you that I literally had this recipe open and ready to make these cookies today after seeing them while I was working out on the treadmill this morning. Great minds.

    I really like FN Magazine. It’s one I have a subscription for. I have made a number of recipes from the 50 Best insert on all kinds of things. And my son just asked me yesterday when we will ever have deviled eggs–I hadn’t seen the article until this morning. Now it will be hard to choose.

    Which issue is this in ??

    (Magazine racks in my area are notoriously out of date, so there’s no telling whether or not this one’s available in my area yet.)

  11. says

    Subscription just came in the mail a few days ago and it’s April 2011. I’m sure they’ll have April recipes up on the site soon.

    I just figured out what is for dinner, so I’m going to go make the cookies now. I was encouraged this morning when I realized I had everything needed already.

  13. Kristie says

    I have the magazine and saw this recipe. How were the cookies? I saw the receipe and was debating if my kids would like them or not.

  14. says

    The cookies are really good! They’re fat, crunchy on the outside, chewy inside, lots of textures from the cereal and oats (I used old fashioned) and marshmallows and pretty.

    Not knowing that you’ve added the link, I bought a copy of the magazine. I paged through it before the purchase and partially bought it because the winner is from Lenhartsville, which is only 15 miles from my home.

    Hmmm! I can really feel the smooth but crunchy cookies of yours while I’m looking in your photos. LOL. I will surely make some of this for my cookies and of course for me too.
