I have always been a big, thick cookie enthusiast but lately, I’ve been craving thin and crispy cookies more and more. I could eat my Chewy Cornflake Marshmallow Cookies ALL DAY LONG.
So it was only a matter of time until I came up with a thin and chewy chocolate cookie. A sweet and salty cookie that has pretty much everything that’s good in life. And here it is in all its glory >
So how do you make a good thin and crispy cookie? First, you need the perfect ratio of butter, sugar and flour. This cookie dough doesn’t require any chilling, otherwise they will be much thicker. Baking the dough straight away will ensure they are lovely and thin.
This also means you will end up with super crispy edges and chewy pockets of melted marshmallows. And using chopped chocolate instead of chocolate chips, guarantees an overload of chocolate! #yesplease
Then there’s the roasted peanuts = my new FAVE thing to add to a cookie. They add the perfect crunch AND a touch of salt, which makes these Dark Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies simply AMAZING.
It’s like a little slice of rocky road heaven. So if you love chewy chocolate cookies with crispy corners and buttery middles, you need to try these Dark Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies.
Once these cookies are baked to perfection, you will need to let them cool completely as they are extra fragile. So be patient and you will be rewarded with an extra special chewy chocolately treat.
My only other advice, is to invite some friends over when you make these because they are irresistible! Honestly, you will not be able to stop at one – well I know I sure couldn’t!
