Marshmallow Cookie Sandwiches Recipe

I love sweets. I love them even more when there is absolutely no baking involved. The other day, I had a marshmallow craving, and wanted to make an easy dessert. After a quick Google search, I stumbled upon this recipe by Martha Stewart.

Ingredients:

  • Vegetable oil cooking spray, for pan
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 2/3 cup cold water
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup light corn syrup
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Confectioners’ sugar, for cutting
  • 9 store-bought graham crackers, split in half, or 18 cinnamon and sugar graham crackers
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
  • 1 cup salted, roasted peanuts, chopped

 

 

Directions:

 

  1. Coat a 9-inch square baking pan with cooking spray; line with parchment paper. Sprinkle gelatin over 1/3 cup water in the bowl of a mixer. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Heat granulated sugar, corn syrup, remaining 1/3 cup water, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until syrup reaches 238 degrees on a candy thermometer, about 5 minutes.
  3. Whisk gelatin in mixer on low speed, adding syrup in a slow, steady stream down side of bowl. Whisk, gradually increasing speed to high, until almost tripled in volume, about 8 minutes. Whisk in vanilla. Transfer to baking pan. Smooth top. Let stand until set, at least 3 hours.
  4. Cut out nine 2 1/2-inch square marshmallows using a cookie cutter or a knife dipped in confectioners’ sugar. Dip surface of crackers into chocolate to coat, and transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes. Sandwich marshmallows between crackers, chocolate sides in.
  5. Dip half of each sandwich into chocolate, on the diagonal; sprinkle with peanuts, and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes.

 

Yummy! These totally remind me of moon pies! I wouldn’t call these “healthy” per se, but you deserve a little treat now and then!
