Imagine the most perfect chocolate chip cookie..then add creamy, sweet, gooey, fluffy marshmallows to the mix! Voila! You have Perfect Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookies...which might be one of the most amazing cookies on the planet...just sayin'.
1stickbutter, softened or at room tempreturesalted preferred but unsalted is OK, too!
2cupsbrown sugar, light or dark
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tspbaking soda
1tspsea salt, for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats (or spray generously with cooking spray).
In a large bowl with a handheld mixer OR stand mixer bowl fitted with a paddle attachment on medium high speed, beat together butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Beat for about 2-3 minutes until nice and creamy. Scrape down the sides as you go.
Add flour and baking soda. Beat at medium speed until the flour in just mixed in and the dough comes together (about 30 seconds). Don't overmix. It will be a stiff dough.
With a large wooden spoon, fold in chocolate chips and marshmallows.
With a large spoon or cookie scoop, form balls with the dough (approx. 1 1/2 to 2 tbsp) and place on baking sheet 2 inches apart. Make sure marshmallows are tucked into the dough and not hanging out otherwise they will ooze out and burn (see photo). Repeat with remaining dough.
Sprinkle the top of each ball with a pinch of sea salt.
Bake 10-12 minutes until cookies JUST start to brown on top, but the centers are still soft. Cookies will continue to cook after you take them out of the oven. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for AT LEAST 10 minutes before transferring to an airtight container to store.
