Snack Attack: Butterscotch and Toasted Marshmallow Gingersnap Sammies


Butterscotch and toasted marshmallow gingersnap sammies

I was at Whole Foods the other morning, getting breakfast, and ‘accidentally’ stumbled over to the fresh cookies bar. Whoops! I did a quick walk around just to make sure I wasn’t missing out on anything and found these soft sugar-topped gingersnap cookies and…well….ten of them somehow made it home with me.

SO! I decided to make some little dessert sandwiches. Butterscotch and toasted marshmallow gingersnaps to be exact. And I wanted to share a quick recipe for these little guys today. They’re really, really good!

You can totally make fresh gingersnaps at home first, if you want to go the homemade route. Here’s a recipe I like for homemade gingersnaps. But if you don’t feel like slaving away in the kitchen, store-bought cookies like mine will do in a pinch.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own butterscotch and toasted marshmallow gingersnap sandwiches…


  • gingersnap cookies
  • melted butterscotch (either syrup or melted butterscotch chips)
  • jumbo marshmallows


Start by carefully toasting the marshmallows over an open fire. Add a dollop of melted butterscotch onto a gingersnap cookie.

Then sandwich a toasted marshmallow between two cookies (one of which being the one with butterscotch on it). Done!

Think you’ll give this dessert sandwich a try? Would you add anything else to these little guys or keep them as is?

Goodness they look good. I really like my biscuits (as we call them in the UK) a little too much. This recipe is perfect as you only need three ingredients 😉

These look amazing. I’ve never been into butterscotch in my life except for the past few months… it’s a growing thing, I guess. But these look amazing. I can only imagine that they’re even more amazing when you use homemade marshmallows with them…

Definitely worth giving it another try, Emily. I love butterscotch every once in a while. But caramel is a great backup option if butterscotch isn’t your thing.

Ahhh these look so good and easy! Definitely going to give these a shout. It makes me want to try other cookie combinations maybe a more cinnamon version like oatmeal rasin
