Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery: Chocolate Chip, Cornflake, Marshmallow Cookies

Posted by & filed under Quick and Easy.

Last week, a dessert-loving colleague brought TRB an infamous Momofuku/Milk Bar cookie — the one with chocolate chips, marshmallows and corn flakes — as a “pick me up.” Well, not only did it brighten TRB‘s day (and lead to a slightly expanded waistline), it also inspired an attempt to recreate these delicious bites of heaven.

Here is TRB‘s version. Be sure to make plenty — your friends and family will definitely be looking for more!

Little Bites of Heaven

1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 bags Ghirardelli Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips (12 oz.)
1/2 bag mini marshmallows
(TRB Tip: Put the marshmallows in the freezer while making the dough; they will firm up and be easy to mix in with the chocolate chips).
1/2 cup corn flakes

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat butter, sugars and vanilla until creamy. Add eggs – one at a time – and mix well.

2. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Incorporate into wet ingredients.

3. Add chocolate chips and marshmallows. Fold in corn flakes.

4. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray or line with a Silpat. Using an ice cream scoop, place golf-ball size pieces of dough roughly 2 inches apart on cookie sheet; cookies will spread when baking.

5. Bake for 12 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes; use a spatula to carefully remove cookies from sheet. (Marshmallows will cause them to stick to the pan).

6. Cool on rack for 20 minutes.
