Valentine's Day: Barely Baked "mallomars"
You will Need
*1 bag o milk chocolate chips or other melty goodness
*strawberry flavored marshmallows (or plain)
*plain store bought cookies of choice
*2 cookie sheets
*spatula, fork & wooden spoon
*wax paper or parchment
*double broiler or microwave safe bowl
*sprinkles & fun optional
these cookies form scratch often but there are simply too many steps to simply whip them up. When I spied a bag of heart shaped strawberry flavored marshmallows I wondered if I could make up a cheater batch and this it what I came up with. I used chocolate animal cookies simply because the price was right, they were small and they were chocolate. .
Meanwhile, dump chocolate chips into top of double broiler, set flame to low and allow the chocolate to melt. You can also do this in the microwave which might work better since a smaller container allows for easier coating. Don't let the microwave go too long, it is really easy to burn the chocolate and then it is no good at all.
