Salty Marshmallow Cookies are my take on classic potato chip cookies! You will fall in love with these sweet and salty cookies that are full of potato chips, butterscotch chips, white chocolate, and marshmallows!
This recipe was originally posted on April 18, 2016. One of the very FIRST recipes I ever put up on my blog! I am updating it today with more organized instructions. I am adding a few new vertical photos as well, but, I am leaving the older photos becase they are great process shots of how these cookies are made. Plus, they are very dear to my heart!
Potato Chip Cookies:
Classic potato chip cookies are a simple mixture of basic cookie dough with crushed potato chips. Over the years, I have seen many versions! "Salty Marshmallow Cookies" are my take on the classic potato chip cookie. Mine are over the top with salty/sweet flavor. Packed full of ridged potato chips, butterscotch and white chocolate chips, and marshmallows. They are completely irresistible!
How to Make Salty Marshmallow Cookies:
- To start, go ahead and cream your softened butter and sugars together with both the vanilla and almond extract. Once this mixture is light and fluffy, you can beat in both of your eggs.
- Then, in a separate large bowl whisk together all of your dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the butter and egg mixture and mix on low speed until well combined.
- As you can see, this dough is fairly thick. Add your crushed potato chips, butterscotch, and white chocolate chips and mix by hand (if you feel strong enough) or, mix just until combined with your mixer as I do!
- At this point, the dough needs to be chilled for 30 minutes before baking. Don't skip this part. It keeps the cookies from becoming too flat as they bake.
- Once the dough has chilled, you can place the cookies on a cookie sheet prepared with non-stick spray or parchment paper. Then, slightly press two marshmallows onto the top of each ball of dough.
- Cool the cookies on a wire rack, then store in an airtight container. Note that these are best eaten within 5 days of baking.

Hi, I am not a fan of white chocolate. What type of chocolate chip would work instead? Thank you it looks like a great recipe to try.
Hi Nichole, Can I use a small ice cream scope for the cookies.
These cookies are absolutely amazing! Easy to make and will be making with the granddaughters next time they come! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
This recipe is awesome! And adding potato chips is sooo creative.

Not only did me and my kiddos make these cookies and they are mmmmm....We also made your butterscotch cookies ? and they are my husband's favorite. Recommended by the Schmidt's. Have a blessed filled day.
Just tried these and they are delicious! Lots of texture and I love the combo of salty and sweet. Mine turned out a little flat, which made the outside crunchy and inside soft and gooey. Would highly recommend!
