Choc-Chip and Marshmallow Cookies

I think I’ve made cookies every weekend for the past month and I have a number of excuses lined up but the truth is, I’ve been constantly craving a good cookie. Is it just me, or is it incredibly tough to find a delicious choc-chip cookie in Cape Town?!

If you think so too, I may soon be answering your prayers as I’m planning to start selling some of my baked goods, which includes cookies (the most delicious recipes I’ve conjured).

For now, here is the recipe for the choc chip and marshmallow cookie I whipped up today. This is the sort of cookie recipe you could throw anything into really, I just happened to have some marshmallows in the cupboard, staring at me… 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 125g butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar (I would definitely recommend Natura Sugars)
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 egg (room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 cups choc-chips
  • handful of marshmallows

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 170 degrees celsius and line to baking pans with baking paper
  • In a medium bowl sift the flour, baking soda and salt and set aside
  • In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars for approximately 2 minutes.
  • Add the egg and vanilla essence and mix on low speed until combined
  • Slowly add the flour mixture until combined
  • Add the choc chips and marshmallows and mix on low speed until incorporated.
  • Scoop spoonfuls of the cookie dough onto a baking sheet, ensuring that there is sufficient space between as it will spread quite a bit
  • Place in the fridge for about an hour.
  • Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes and once they have been removed from the oven, leave them in the baking pans until completely cool.
  • Dig in and enjoy!
