In Search Of: the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie Part 53: Chocolate Chip Cookies with Mini Marshmallows

I found the original recipe on another food blog, though we changed it a bit (we were planning on substituting milk and semi-sweet chocolate for the white chocolate and toffee in the original recipe, but when we made the recipe, adding them in looked like it would be too much for the dough we had).

  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt (didn’t use because we use salted butter)
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks (we used a mix of semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips)
  • 1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (didn’t use)
  • 3/4 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup toffee chips (didn’t use)

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare baking sheets.

2. In a large bowl, beat together butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla.

3. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt (if using). Add to the wet ingredients.

4. Add the marshmallows and all of the chocolate/toffee chips.

5. Drop by spoonful onto baking sheets. Bake 10-12 (ours needed 8).

Verdict: We made 5 dozen cookies. These were good, but not different enough from other chocolate chip cookies. It’s probably because we took out the white chocolate and toffee pieces that would have given it a different flavour. The marshmallows weren’t enough to give these cookies a truly unique taste.
