Momufuku Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Knockoff
There is this amazing restaurant in Washington DC called Momufuku. They’re known for their crack pie which one day I will attempt to recreate. However, they also have the most delightful cookies! They’re made with corn flour and all good things and are the perfect texture with the perfect amount of softness.
The best chocolate chip cookie ever:
Why am I telling you about the cookies at a place in Washington DC? Because one of those INCREDIBLE cookies inspired this amazing cookie recipe! It’s not the same. I don’t use corn flour and honestly I have no idea what other ingredients they use. But I do love how my cookies turned out. In fact, I loved them so much I almost ate an entire batch by myself and my kiddos went crazy on what was left of the second batch…
*A couple quick tips!
- First, The cornflakes. In order to keep the cornflakes from turning to mush in the cookie dough, we have to turn them into a crunchy delicious bit of awesomeness.
- The cornflakes have a separate baking procedure. Double the recipe because you’ll want to make these marshmallow crunch chocolate chip cookies over and over again!
- Also, Cool the cornflakes mixture completely before adding it to your chocolate chip cookie dough. It cools pretty fast, so while you’re waiting on it to finish cooling, you can begin assembling your cookies.
- Next, The marshmallows. Be sure to use Vegan marshmallows! Regular mini marshmallows contain gelatin. As the cookies bake, regular mini marshmallows dissolve into a mess. the vegan marshmallows hold their shape and bake into gooey amazingness.
I purchase my vegan mini marshmallows at Trader Joe’s, but you can also usually find them in the health food section at your local grocer.
- If you don’t have vegan marshmallows, never fear! Your other option is to not add the marshmallows to the dough, but instead push them into the tops of the cookies 2 minutes before they’re finished cooking, and return them to the oven. This works delightfully!
Okay, y’all go make these fabulous marshmallow crunch chocolate chip cookies! Then come back and tell me how much you and yours LOVED them!
