Chocolate Marshmallow Meltaways



Found this recipe in Parents Magazine.  If you like smores, you love these.  The best part is that they are no bake.  So if you feel like having something sweet on a hot summer day, these are perfect

Chocolate Marshmallow Meltaways

1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
7 oz. marshmallow cream
nonstick cooking spray
chocolate syrup

In a large bowl, mix the crumbs, peanut butter, maple syrup, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.  Shape into 24 1 1/4 in. balls and place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet or tray as you shape.  Use a fork to flatten and make crisscross design on each ball.

Before serving, spoon 1/2 tsp marshmallow on each cookie.  Coat the spoon with nonstick spray to make it easier.  Then drizzle the cookies with chocolate syrup.


They were pretty simple to make.  Instead of chocolate syrup I melted a bar of dark Ghiradelli chocolate.  Much better!  I did keep them in the fridge so they wouldn't melt.  Not that they lasted very long anyway.  They were very addictive.  If you have kids this is a great recipe for them to help you out with.  My 5yr old helped me shape all the balls and flatten them out.  She also helped me eat them.
