Mississippi Mud Cookies – the perfect cookie for chocolate lovers! A chocolate cookie with pecans, chocolate chips, and marshmallows!
Hey guys, happy Friday! I made cookies!
I mentioned earlier that I was back in my s’mores obsession which means my kitchen is full of every size marshmallow, 15 different kinds of chocolate, etc, etc, etc.
So when I needed cookies at 2 am after a particularly rough day recently, I made these Mississippi Mud Cookies. Because chocolate and marshmallows. And also pecans.
Everything I love.
They’re also super easy and you should totally make them sometime this weekend.
