Cookie mixture

  • 225 g butter, melted
  • 250 g caster sugar
  • 150 g light soft brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250 g plain flour
  • ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 125 g chocolate chips
  • 70 g mini marshmallows

Tips and Suggestions

If you can't get high quality chocolate chips, chop a chocolate bar into chunks and use that instead


1. For the cornflake mixture: preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. In a bowl, combine the cornflake mixture with a pinch of salt and spread out evenly on a baking tray. Bake for 6-8 minutes then allow to cool.

2. For the cookie mixture: increase the oven temperature to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Cream together the sugars, egg, vanilla and melted butter. In a separate bowl, add the bicarbonate of soda and 1 teaspoon salt to the flour then stir and add to the rest of the mixture.

3. When the mixture is combined to a smooth paste, mix in the chocolate chips and cooled down cornflake mixture.

4. Roll the dough into small 30g balls and place onto a lined baking sheet. Allow plenty of space between each ball as they will spread out in the oven.

5. Place a marshmallow in the centre of each ball before placing them into a heated oven for 8-10 minutes. Leave to cool on a baking tray.
