If you were to look up "perfect" in the dictionary, I am 99.99% sure that Marshmallow Funfetti Skillet Cookie would appear as the definition.
This cookie is soft in the center on its own, but when you add a bunch of marshmallows, it is ooey and gooey and SO SO good. The marshmallows get all melty and a little browned in the oven, while the edges of the cookie crisp up. It is the perfect combination of soft, chewy and crispy! So you can't go wrong.
Funfetti was such a big question mark to me for so long. I know that sounds weird, but I always LOVED funfetti cakes, cupcakes, etc. I thought there was something special about it but I simply didn't know what it was. Because to me, it always just seemed like a vanilla flavor with sprinkles. It was only recently that I realized that that's all it is... just vanilla + some pretty colored sprinkles. I am sorry if I just broke this news to you.
NEVERTHELESS - it is still delicious. And it's also just fun and happy and colorful. But instead of just sprinkles, I thought, "how the heck could we make this cookie more exciting?!" and low and behold it was stuffing a bunch of marshmallows in the center.
Do I need a skillet for this marshmallow funfetti skillet cookie?
No! You don't. If I am being completely transparent, I haven't tried it, but I imagine you could use a small roasting pan or pie dish. You're going to end up eating this with a fork, so who cares if it looks pretty?
Can I make these into normal cookies?
UM heck yes you can! I suggest rolling the dough, flattening it a little in your palm, placing the marshmallow in the center and rolling it back up. And then boom - you have a funfetti cookie with a gooey warm marshmallow on the inside. (Ok side note, but my laptop just autocorrected funfetti to confetti and now I am realizing that is 100% where the name comes from and I don't know why it took me this long to figure that out).
Do I need to have sprinkles?
Absolutely not!!! It'll just be one big sugar cookie.
Do I need marshmallows?
If you're not a fan of marshmallows, just leave them out!! This will still be delicious either way.
What should the bake time be for this marshmallow funfetti skillet cookie?
For a gooey cookie, bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20-22 minutes. For a crispier cookie, bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 22-25 minutes!
You're only 30 minutes away from the most delicious dessert! I hope you enjoy.
Marshmallow Stuffed Funfetti Skillet Cookie
- 1 ½ cups all purpose flour spooned and leveled
- 1 ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ cup unsalted butter room temperature
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ cup rainbow sprinkles
- ¼ cup mini marshmallows
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease a cast iron skillet.
- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a separate bowl, beat the butter and sugar together on medium speed until light and fluffy, about two minutes. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat on medium-high speed until combined, scraping down the bottom and the sides of the bowl if necessary.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on low speed until a dough forms. Add the sprinkles and fold them into the dough. Once fully incorporated, put the dough in the cast iron skillet and use a rubber spatula to make an even layer. In the center of the skillet, place the marshmallows.
- Bake for 20-22 minutes for a softer cookie with a gooey center, and 22-25 minutes for a crisper cookie. Let cool and enjoy!
Made this for my friends birthday and it was a huge hit!
I am so glad!!
