If you would like to know where you can buy marshmallow bits, you can buy them online here, or (for less money) your local large grocery store or Walmart will have them. I purchase mine in bulk at a local Amish store (where they also carry Lucky Charm bits!)

  1. These cookies look amazing!!

  2. Since I didn’t have any marshmallows, I crushed up some candy canes and mixed the pieces in. Turned out delicious! I’ll definitely be adding this to my repertoire of holiday deserts!

  3. Thwse look amazing, I know my kids will love them. Is there anything I can use in place of the Crisco and have them turn out the same?

  4. Lindsay @ The DIY Mommy says

    These look so so yummy! Def a must try!

  5. If you want to you can replace the crisco with butter but you’ll need half a cup along with one more tablespoon. I did it and it worked really well for me.

  6. My cookies were very flat. Thoughts?

      I’m glad I’m not the only one. My son and I have tried the recipe twice and both times have ended up with very flat cookies with the marshmallow sunken into the dough. I can’t figure it out.

    • Caitlin, Christy – normally cookies are flat due to butter spreading (that is why you see so many recipes requiring the dough to be chilled – it helps with that butter spread). This recipe using Crisco, so that “should” not apply.

      A few other possibilities would be overbeating the dough, placing dough on a hot cookie pan (as opposed to just washed or room temp pan), not measuring accurately (the sugar or the baking soda specifically), or, the oven may not be accurate (you can check with an oven thermometer).

      There are a lot of reasons cookies might turn out flat, but the biggest culprit – butter – isn’t found in this recipe.

      I am sorry these did not turn out well for either of you.
