Today is all about two rival football teams competing for a title. It’s about the grit and the glory, the hard work and the payoff.
It’s about the commercials and the food, OBVIOUSLY. I base who I want to win on which city I like better and which uniform is more pleasing to my eye. I’m sorry, Denver, but Seattle wins in both categories (at least I know who is playing, right?!). Today I’ll be with family, cheering for that really adorable puppy in the Anheuser-Busch commercial, and eating lots and lots of food.
I’m also celebrating the big game with my fellow Sunday Supper people, and you can view their recipes at the end of this post. My contribution are these Heavenly Hash cookies that almost didn’t even last for pictures.
Note: The featured cookies were my third batch. Yes, THIRD. The first, I thought it would be fiiineee to put the marshmallows into the batter. The second time, I didn’t realize my first mistake and thought I should just make taller mounds of cookie. Amateur… Turns out when you put marshmallows in the cookie dough, they melt and make the cookie incredibly flat. Imagine that. I think I’ve said before that baking can be a struggle for me. Anyway, the third time really is a charm!
My first reaction when I saw National Heavenly Hash Day on the calendar was one of bewilderment. What in heaven’s name is Heavenly Hash? Well, turns out I’ve had this “thing” before, just in a different form. I once had Heavenly Hash: The Fruit Salad. Traditionally, it involves maraschino cherries, grapes, pecans and other fun stuff folded into whipped cream. Really, though, you can switch up the ingredients. The only requirements are some kind of fruit and some kind of creamy white deliciousness.
As Heavenly Hash evolved, recipes for cookies, candy, cake, bars, ice cream came to be and the world rejoiced because everything is just so yummy. Simple, delicious food at its finest.
If you decide to forego the fruit salad version, the other sweets generally involve chocolate, marshmallows and nuts. You can add coconut (which is what I did), or something else that strikes your fancy. I hope you enjoy!
- ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup sugar

- ½ cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
- ⅛ cup shredded coconut

- In the stand mixer bowl, beat butter and sugar on medium until combined. Add egg and vanilla extract.
- In a separate bowl, sift together flour and cocoa powder. Add baking soda and salt and whisk to combine.

- In heaping tablespoons, place cookie dough on greased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart.
- Bake in a 325*F oven for 15 minutes. (Cookies WILL be soft, but will harden as they finish cooking outside of the oven later.)
- Remove from oven and place 3-10 marshmallows on top of each cookie, depending on your preference. Return to pan and bake another 5 minutes, or until marshmallows have expanded and are browned on top.
