Charlie is a, um…picky eater. He has the oddest tastes of anyone I’ve ever met. He’s not always super into sweets, but he does clear my pantry out of any white chocolate and marshmallows I may have on hand pretty much every time he comes over. They are his two favorite things, and they are definitely two things I can get behind!

To celebrate his accomplishment, I made a simple dessert putting his favorite things together. The cookie layer is thick and soft, then it’s topped with melty white chocolate and browned marshmallows for a winning combination of flavors and textures.

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/4 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • dash salt
  • 1/4 cup apple butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tbsp nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Spray a 9x9 pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat together apple butter, sugar, egg white, Greek yogurt and vanilla until well combined. Slowly, add in flour mixture and continue beating until incorporated.
  3. Transfer dough to prepared pan and use a greased piece of parchment paper to gently and evenly press dough into the pan.
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden and set in the center. Evenly sprinkle white chocolate chips on top, followed by marshmallows.
  5. Broil for 2-3 minutes until marshmallows are browned and puffy. Pay close attention during this step--they can burn quickly if left in too long. Cool completely, and serve.

    Oh my! I can’t have regular chocolate but I CAN have white chocolate. I’m not supposed to have wheat (for kidney stones, not an intolerance) but I will either make an exception or I will find a substitute to try. This is going to be pinned and tried soon!

      Thanks Summer! I’m pretty sure I’ve never met a person who was like “Ehhh, toasted marshmallows are just okay…” They automatically make anything better in my opinion 😉

    This looks so delicious! I love the combination of white chocolate with marshmallows. Also, where do you get this amazing ingredient called apple butter? It sounds so delicious!

    Is there any substitute for the apple butter? Cause I have no idea what this is -obviously I’m not American, I’m from Europe- and I can’t find a word for it in my language. This sounds delicious and I really wanna make it. Thanks and great site!
