Fat chewy chocolate chip cookies packed with chocolate then stuffed with marshmallow and caramel.
Ingredients
  • For The Cookies:
  • 6 oz dark chocolate chips
  • 6 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) salted butter at room temp
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • ½ packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup of cornstarch
  • 1⅓ cup of AP flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg room temp
  • For the caramel
  • ¼ cup of salted butter
  • ¼ cup of brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp of heavy cream
  • Jumbo marshmallows roasted
Instructions
  1. For the cookies
  2. Cream the butter with the sugar and brown sugar until pale.
  3. Add the vanilla, egg and salt.
  4. Mix until pale and fluffy.Careful not to over mix.
  5. Add in the cornstarch, flour, baking soda.
  6. Mix on low until just combined.
  7. Add chocolate chips and mix in by hand. Just folding the dough over.
  8. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  9. Preheat the oven to 350.
  10. Use parchment paper or a baking mat on a large cookie sheet.
  11. I used an icecream scoop to make sure they were evenly sized dough balls,
  12. Do not press dough down. You want a thick cookie.
  13. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until slightly browned.
  14. Leave on sheet for 1 minute to slightly cool then transfer to a baking rack.
  15. (this will keep the cookies soft and not allow them to continue baking on the sheet)
  16. Makes 12 large cookies
  17. For The Caramel
  18. Heat ¼ cup of salted butter in a sauce pan on medium low heat until melted
  19. Add ¼ cup of brown sugar.
  20. Mix thoroughly.
  21. As soon as the mixture starts to bubble remove from heat and add the cream.
  22. Allow to thicken stirring occasionally.
  23. I roasted marshmallows over the oven while my caramel cooked since I have a gas stove, but you can just microwave them. They just need to be slightly warmed to become the perfect gooey texture.
  24. Once cookies are cooled add at least 3 marshmallows to one cookie top with caramel and sandwich with another cookie. Enjoy!
