I made 12 Peanut Butter Marshmallow Puffs. 6 disappeared. We’re not sure where they went, no one will confess, but Chris and the kids have been sneaking around and in our house, it’s guilty until proven innocent.

I see the sly smiles and noticed that a remaining peanut butter marshmallow puff lost it’s top, but around here, that’s the sign of a successful recipe, so I just wink and move on – unless I haven’t photographed yet!

The best cookie recipe for peanut butter lovers | Peanut Butter Marshmallow Puffs

To make peanut butter marshmallow puffs, I pressed my peanut butter cookie dough into a greased tartlet pan, but you can use mini muffin tins as well. It makes the peanut butter cookie thick, moist and chewy.

Of course I had to top it with homemade marshmallow cream. Don’t be intimidated, it’s so easy and I promise that I won’t make you use a candy thermometer. I appreciate precise recipes, but dessert is not the time to overthink things.
