My preschooler enjoys cooking, so this year for Valentine’s Day I thought we would make some cookies to give to the loves in his life- Daddy, Grandma and Grandpa, Memaw and Grandpa. I’ve been working on finding a good chocolate chip cookie recipe, and the one we have liked the most is the Betty Crocker’s Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies. After making it the first time I decided that the cookies were just a little too flat so I adjusted it a little. I also did not include the nuts, as I don’t like them. And for our Valentine’s treats, we decided to add in some marshmallows. Here’s my final recipe:
Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookies
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg + 1 egg white
- 2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup marshmallows
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Mix sugars, butter, vanilla, egg, and egg white. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. Then stir in the chocolate chips and marshmallows.
- Scoop cookie batter in spoonfuls of onto cookie sheets. Leave a few inches between, as they spread a little. Then I mush my cookie batter spoonfuls down a little so that they are little disks.
- Bake for about 7 minutes. This will vary depending on how your oven runs.
Originally I had a different vision in mind for these cookies. I wanted to make them into the shape of hearts, but completely forgot. I also wanted to make them with chocolate chips and caramel chips, but after looking in 3 stores for caramel chips, I am thinking I dreamed them up. Perhaps they don’t exist. Maybe I’m crazy, but I thought they did. Perhaps next time, if I can ever find them.
We let the cookies cool and then we slipped them into these Valentine-themed monkey cellophane bags that I think we got at Target last year on clearance. We’ll do delivery tomorrow. I know we are early, but I’ve learned that sometimes I’ve got to get these things done when we have the time or else we forget.
