Mississippi Mud Cookies
I originally published this recipe way back in 2009. I felt the need to refresh it and add some new photos because they are just THAT good.
I had seen these cookies on several blogs but the first one I saw them on was my friend Megan’s. It’s funny about Megan. I remember the first comment she left on my blog all those years ago. I don’t remember what post, I just remember her saying she liked the name of my blog. I clicked over to hers and low and behold, it’s called Megan’s Cookin’. Ha! So today, Megan’s Cookin’ is melding with Amanda’s Cookin’ to bring you these satisfy-your-chocolate-craving Mississippi Mud Cookies.
Does anyone else find themselves spelling out Mississippi in your head whenever you type it? In fact, I don’t think I can type that word without spelling it out just like we did in elementary school!

Normally I am a couple of weeks behind in posting what I make. I have a folder full of pictures and the recipes lie in wait for me to post them. But not today. No, I made these bad boys today due to an overwhelming craving for gooey chocolate. I hit my “cookie” labeled bookmark folder and there it was, waiting for me in all of its ooey-gooey chocolatey-ness. :) I just had to share them with you right away!
I didn’t change much, other than eliminating the nuts, and instead of using milk chocolate chips, I just used the rest of the bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips. My recipe is adapted a little, you can grab the original from Megan’s blog if you prefer nuts.
Oh and by the way, if you have a third of a bag of miniature marshmallows sitting in your kitchen cabinet all stuck together and getting stale (like I did) then never fear, they’ll work great in this!
