Love is in the air with Valentine’s Day just a few days away.
Some give a box of chocolates. Others flowers. Even a sweet card. But show those you love how much you care with something homemade from the kitchen.
I’m a sucker for chocolate and marshmallows. Fluffy and sticky sweet, they’re at the top of my must-have sweets list. And since I’m always up for a good challenge, I thought y’all might like to see how it turned out.
2 c. flour
1-¾ c. packed light brown sugar, divided
¾ c. butter, melted
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
And for the filling and topping, you will need…
1-¾ c. baking chocolate, bittersweet
1 c. heavy cream
1 jar marshmallow creme
There’s no time for chit-chat when it comes to making these layered cookies. They come together pretty quickly, but have lots of steps. Let’s get to it.
Now that the cookies are cool, spread about a tablespoon of marshmallow creme to half of the cookies. I like to use a plastic knife for this so it doesn’t stick quite as much. Then, top with a second cookie to make a sandwich.
This fluffy chocolate treat is a great way to spread the love. Share your favorite Valentine’s Day recipes with us in the comments! From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
