Recipe: Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookies

100_5079

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

Ingredients:

  • 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
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix sugars, butter, vanilla, egg, and egg white.  Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt.  Then stir in the chocolate chips and marshmallows.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
