My Own Recipe

Chocolate and cherries what a great combination! A perfectly balanced cookie topped with marshmallows.

This recipe came about from my love of chocolate and marshmallows and wanting to desperately wanting that combination in a cookie. I tried many recipe on the net but they all turned into a big sticky mess. Due to my cravings I developed this recipe. I knew that incorporating the marshmallows into the batter would give me the same sticky mess as the other recipes tried so I thought adding them at the end and slightly browning them just like you have from a campfire. I found out from tril and error that if you use frozen marshmallows that the browning of the them goes slower then if you use room temperature marshmallows. The biggest errors that learned was never use parchment paper under the broiler *cough* can we say smoke detector, and burnt cookies?
