Boozy homemade chocolate marshmallows with some added chocolate!


Being cocktail bloggers, we are used to being sent samples of different spirits and alcoholic products to try, but rarely do our friends hand us a bottle and ask us to do something with it! We have a friend who loves all kinds of flavored vodkas, but she had one flavor that she couldn’t figure out what to do with it, Cookie Dough Vodka.

With no idea what to do with it other than shots, she turned to us to see if we could do anything with it!

We played around a bit with the cookie dough vodka to make her a cocktail she could enjoy, but we kept coming back to using it for some kind of boozy dessert. Since the Cookie Dough Vodka was really sweet and chocolatey, we figured it might be good in something sweet like homemade marshmallows!


We have had a good luck making boozy marshmallows in the past with a delectable Peppermint Mocha Marshmallow and a delicious Cherry Amaretto Marshmallow so why not try to make a chocolate chip one?

These boozy marshmallows were a big hit with us and our friends (and our readers!) so we decided to see if we could make Chocolate Chip Boozy Homemade Marshmallows! The sweet fluffy marshmallow lends itself to picking up other great dessert flavors like chocolate.

We added a couple of ounces of the Cookie Dough vodka to our marshmallow mix and suddenly the spirit that we had trouble figuring out how to use became a perfect part of a marshmallow!

What Ingredients are Needed for the Chocolate Chip Booze Marshmallows?

  • Water
  • Corn Syrup
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Sugar
  • Cookie Dough Vodka
  • Salt
  • Gelatin
  • Cornstarch
  • Powdered Sugar


Of course any chocolate chip boozy marshmallow needed to have some actual chocolate chips in it! With the cookie dough vodka definitely having a chocolate chip cookie flavor it was only natural to add some chocolate chips to really pop the chocolate cookie dough favor.

Yield: 1

Chocolate Chip Boozy Marshmallows

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Set Time: 8 hours
Total Time: 8 hours 30 minutes

Boozy marshmallows with chocolate chips added. Perfect for hot chocolate.



  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons Cookie Dough Vodka
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon water


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch


  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 envelopes plain gelatin (1/4 oz per envelope)


This recipe is easier with a stand mixer, but you can do it with a hand mixer. You can use an 8x8 pan for thicker marshmallows or a 9x13 for thinner. We split the difference at an 8x11.

Place water in the mixing bowl with the whisk attachment. Sprinkle gelatin on top. Let bloom while you are doing the next steps.

Spray sides and bottom of pan with cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and cornstarch. Coat the greased pan with the sugar/cornstarch mixture, making sure to cover the sides and bottom. Don't use it all, set the extra aside for later.

In a small saucepan, mix together 1 Tbsp vodka, sugar, corn syrup, water and salt. Stir continuously, making sure to not boil over, until the mixture reaches 238 degrees.

Add the remaining vodka into the mixing bowl with the gelatin. Then slowly add the sugar syrup. Once gelatin is dissolved, set mixer on high, Whip for at least 15 minutes, ours took 19-20.

The mixture is ready once it has doubled in size and is thick enough to to have peaks in the batter.

Add the chocolate chips to the mix, folding it into the marshmallow mix.

Pour mixture into the prepared pan. Use a greased spatula to smooth the top if desired. Dust the top with more sugar/cornstarch mix. Let the marshmallows sit at least 8 hours, or overnight, uncovered in pan

When ready to cut, dust a pizza cutter or sharp knife with more sugar/cornstarch mixture. Then slice to the size you want. Remove the marshmallows from the pan and toss in the last of the sugar/cornstarch mixture so the sides aren't sticky. Store in an airtight container.

These look great, but, all alcohol is lost after heated. Is there a way to add the alcohol after boiling the other ingredients?

There is some that stays, but in reality there is just a little bit of alcohol in the recipe. There are only 4 Tbsp in the whole recipe for a whole pan of marshmallows. Only 1/4 of the vodka is added during the cooking process, and the rest when stuff is still hot, so I guess you could try it all (just 1 Tbsp and sub that with water) but I honestly don't know if that 1 Tbsp would make much difference. You could sure try it out and let me know, cheers!
