Suitable for freezing
Butter 110g (4oz), softened

Light muscovado sugar 110g (4oz)
Egg 1, beaten
Plain flour 150g (5oz)
Baking powder ½ tsp
Oats 75g (3oz)
Mini marshmallows 50g (2oz)
Plain chocolate 75g (3oz), chopped

1 Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.

2 In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Gradually beat in the egg.

3 Sift in the flour and baking powder and add the oats. Stir well. Add half the mini marshmallows and half the chopped chocolate.

4 Drop heaped tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking tray and bake for 10-15 minutes, until just turning golden. Sprinkle over the remaining marshmallows and chocolate chunks as soon as the cookies are removed from the oven. Leave to cool slightly, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook’s tips
Swap marshmallows for dried fruit if you like.  Sprinkle any leftover marshmallows over ice cream with a drizzle of golden syrup for a naughty dessert.
