With the school holidays approaching, my family found a recipe they wanted to make this week, adapting it to our own tastes. I have to say, these could be the tastiest biscuits I have ever baked!
Our adaptation of a couple of favourite cookie recipes, is a single recipe that could rapidly become a family treasure. I dare you to get your grandkids in on this one. It’s messy, fun and absolutely delicious! When cooked the marshmallow melts to become a toffee that smashes together with chocolate.
- 250g butter
- 200g white sugar
- 130g brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 10mls vanilla
- a teaspoon of cinnamon
- 6g baking soda
- 6g salt
- 400g choc melts (break them all in half)
- 125g marshmallows (chop them into halves/quarters or use mini marshmallows)
- 470g plain flour
- 3 tablespoons cocoa (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
- Cream the butter and sugar, add the eggs, and beat well.
- Stir in the vanilla.
- Combine the flour, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Stir into the creamed mixture.
- Using a soup spoon, take a ball of mixture, press it out until a flat round cookie shape.
- Have the kids press into the top of the cookie the choc pieces and marshmallows – as much as they can fit on each one.
- Bake for 15 minutes or until brown.
- Cool and serve. This is the finished product.
