  • 1 package Pillsbury™ Ready to Bake!™ refrigerated chocolate chip cookies (24 cookies)
  • 2 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup loosely packed mini pretzel twists (about 25 to 30)
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 8-inch square pan with foil, extending foil over 2 opposite sides of pan. Spray foil with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Place block of cookie dough in bottom of pan. Gently press dough with fingers to flatten and cover bottom of pan in even layer.
  • 3
    Bake 18 minutes or just until centre is set.
  • 4
    Sprinkle marshmallows over partially baked crust. Arrange pretzels over marshmallows in 5 or 6 rows of 5 pretzels each. Sprinkle chocolate chips over top.
  • 5
    Return to oven; bake 5 minutes longer. For a toasted marshmallow appearance, set oven control to broil. Place pan on top oven rack; broil 1 to 2 minutes or until marshmallows are light golden brown, watching constantly to prevent burning. (Even 30 seconds can make or break it and cause marshmallows to burn.)
  • 6
    Cool bars in pan at least 30 minutes.
  • 7
    Lift bars from pan by using foil overhang; place on cutting board. Cut either into 3 rows by 3 rows to make 9 bars or into 4 rows by 3 rows to make 12 bars. Store in airtight container at room temperature up to 5 days.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Spray your knife with cooking spray before cutting the bars to prevent the gooey marshmallows from sticking to it.
  • Tip 2
    Do you like butterscotch, white chocolate or peanut butter? Consider adding those varieties of baking chips – either in place of the chocolate chips, or sprinkle a handful of your favourite variety along with the chocolate chips.
  • Tip 3
    Like caramel or chocolate sauce? Drizzle bars with your favourite sauce before serving.
  • Tip 4
    Love white chocolate or want to keep this dessert all white for a bridal shower or special event? Use sugar cookie dough or white chocolate- or white yogurt-covered pretzels and white vanilla chips.
