  • Portion size 64 servings


  • 6 oz bittersweet chocolate
  • 4 oz unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 3/4 cups chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

On board, chop bittersweet and unsweetened chocolates. Place chocolate and butter in large heatproof bowl over slightly smaller saucepan of hot (not boiling) water. Melt, stirring with metal spoon, until about three-quarters melted. Remove from heat and let finish melting; stir until smooth. Whisk in sugar, then eggs, 1 at a time, and vanilla.

In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Pour over chocolate mixture; stir just until combined. Sprinkle chocolate chips, marshmallows and walnuts over batter; stir to combine.

Drop by heaping tablespoonful (15 mL) about 2 inches (5 cm) apart onto parchment paper-lined or ungreased rimless baking sheets. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in centre of oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until firm around edges but still soft in centre. Let firm up on pan on rack for 5 minuts; transfer cookies to rack to finish cooling.
