National Heavenly Hash Day | Heavenly Hash Cookies for #SundaySupper

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.

Jay kay.

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!

    You get the award for perseverance! And I’m so glad you do because these cookies rock! Love them. And yes, I’m with you on the football thing. Orange is just a tough color to wear so much of, Denver. I went with Seattle because I like seafood. But yes, I like their colors much better :-) I’d be more interested if it was called foodball instead of football.

      Oh my gosh, this is TOO FUNNY, lol. Obviously, Denver doesn’t know fashion because I know how hard orange can be to wear. Get it together, Denver. Foodball sounds good to me!

    Hm, I’ve never heard of this Heavenly Hash mix before but it sounds yummy and your cookies do too! Third time is definitely a charm

    Waving hello from Denver and wearing my bright orange Bronco t-shirt! :) I’ve heard of these cookies and have never really known what they were. They look good to me and wish I had a plate in front of me. Thanks for sharing.

    The third time certainly was the charm for such wonderful cookies! Glad you got the recipe worked out so you could share it today.

    Your cookies look so adorable and delicious! I’m sure there’s some joke to be made about reading the title makes you think they’ll be a *different* kind of cookie, but I don’t think I’ve had enough caffeine to come up with one. Lol! Thanks for posting!

    I had no idea what Heavenly Hash was either. Living in the South, ‘hash’ is a form of barbecued pork. Your cookies would be perfect at any Super Bowl party! Thanks for educating me on something new!

    Yum! I never knew that this was a fruit salad. I love heavenly hash ice cream, and also now, these cookies! It took me a few attempts to get my recipe right today, too.
