I made these yesterday and OH MY GOD they are amazing. I adapted a simple cookie dough recipe for what I needed and struck gold. I shared the picture on social media with loads of people asking me how to make them so here is what I did!
Pre-heat oven to 180 deg (or 160 fan). Line 2 baking trays with greaseproof baking paper.
- 125g butter (I used Stork with butter, but simple softened unsalted butter would be just as good)
- 100g light brown sugar
- 125g caster sugar
- 1 medium sized, beaten egg
- 1tsp vanilla extract (I used Dr Oetker’s Madagascan vanilla extract, my advice is not to cut corners with this, use the best quality you can afford)
- 225g self-raising flour
- pinch of salt
- 100g white chocolate chips
- 50g macadamia nuts, crushed (with a rolling pin or similar)
- 70g mini marshmallows.
What to do:
- Add the caster sugar and light brown sugar into a large mixing bowl and stir until combined together evenly.
- Add the butter and cream with a hand whisk until light in colour and fluffy looking (about 2 minutes).
- Put in the egg and vanilla extract followed with about 1/3 of the flour and whisk until combined.
- Slowly add the remaining flour and the salt and mix until a dough is formed.
- Using a spatula fold in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed, followed by the marshmallows and macadamia nuts.
- Once all combined evenly using a spoon or your hands to make into ping pong sized balls and place 6 on each baking tray. Make sure there is plenty of space between them so they don’t all join together whilst baking.
- Place in the oven for 10-14 minutes, checking regularly after the 10-minute mark to see when the dough is just cooked through, with a clean knife or skewer. You may find just a small bit of dough on the skewer when testing, at this point remove them from the oven. They will appear very puffy and the edges should be a light golden brown when they are ready.
- Let them cool on the baking tray for at least 10 minutes, by this time they should have flattened and appear gooey. Using a spatula remove them from the baking tray and onto a wire rack to cool completely.
- Enjoy! They should be delightfully gooey and break apart easily.
I honestly love these cookies and actually ate the majority of them myself *not ashamed* so I really hope you enjoy them too. Let me know how you get on with a photo on social media (don’t forget to tag me) or a comment below!
