Happy Monday! What better way to ring in the week than with another installment of Milk Bar Mondays? Today we have another cookie creation for you, loaded with mini chocolate chips, marshmallows, and crunchy cornflake clusters.
The cornflake crunch was probably my favorite part of this whole recipe. In fact, I found myself unable to stop snacking on it before I added it to the dough. It was sweet, crunchy, salty, and since it had milk powder as a key ingredient, it had that certain taste that I just couldn’t put my finger on. I will definitely be making this crunch again to use some creative way in the future.
Now the cookies were good too, but I would have to make a few adjustments if I ever made them again. Milk Bar stuff is always ridiculously sweet, but in this case it seemed to be a little bit too much. In my opinion, a little less butter would made these cookies thicker and a little less rich. I find myself unable to eat more than a corner of one of these without needing some milk to wash it down stat. I actually think the best solution to making these cookies less rich is to remove the sugar form the crunch recipe and use as little butter as possible to bind everything together. Rich crunch plus rich batter equals one sweet cookie.
All that being said, the flavor combos in these cookies were amazing. I’ve never put marshmallows in cookies before and I love the gooeyness they created. I also really like baking with mini chocolate chips. The chocolate is much better dispersed so every bite has a few bits. And you know I love the cornflake crunch!
