After the end of our roller derby season, we had a couple weeks off of practice– the long awaited “derby break.” I took the opportunity to use some vacation time at work and get the heck out of town! To be more specific, I drove 800 miles away to see my dad for the first time since he moved last summer.
While I was there, he mentioned (more than once) a recipe that he’d come across with cookies, marshmallow fluff and vanilla frosting. We never made them, but when I stumbled across the recipe after I got home, I knew it had to have been exactly what he was talking about. I decided that it would be the perfect thing to post on my blog for Father’s Day!
The ingredients are simple enough: Rainbow chip cookies, marshmallow fluff, vanilla frosting.
You mix up the marshmallow fluff and frosting and then sandwich it between two cookies.
At first it looked promising…
But then it became clear that they weren’t going to look anything like the ones in the recipe photo. Hmm…
They are in the freezer right now, so we’ll see what they taste like later. The recipe calls for wrapping them individually in plastic wrap… maybe if I’d wrapped them each as soon as I put them together they wouldn’t have had time to leak out everywhere?
Happy Father’s Day, Dad! If you make these, I hope they turn out better than mine did.
Edited to add: While they are incredibly messy, they tasted delicious! Let me know if you make them, especially if you have any tips for making them less of a sticky mess than mine were!
