The directions were incomplete, I know I could finish the cookies but everyone is not an experienced cook
or some just need all of the directions when doing a recipe!
Did you reference the recipe card in the post?
Tried these and loved them . I don’t even really care for the LD version but loved these and they were so simple to make
I Love Little Debbie stuff.
Easy recipe and tastes great!
I have no idea what I did wrong; but the marshmallows did not complete melt and there was no way they were going to stick together to form a cookie! So, plan B was to press them into a pan to see if they would firm up … nada Taste is pretty good though so maybe cereal topping???
What are caramel chips? These look amazing.
They are like chocolate chips, but caramel. I added a link in the post.
