marshmallows:

chocolate drizzle:

  • Melt 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate with 2 tablespoons of milk.  Heat on the stove or in a microwave safe bowl until smooth.  Kara suggests Guittard Dark Chocolate Chips.

assemble:

  • Select 1 of Kara’s Cupcakes Artisan Vanilla Marshmallows.  Heat the marshmallow  with a handheld torch or broil in oven on a sheet pan for a few minutes until softened.  Be careful not to over burn!
  • Select 2 cookies of the same size. Place the first of your chocolate chip cookies on a cooled sheet pan with the bottom side up.  Add your warm melted/ toasted marshmallow to the cookie. Drizzle the top of the marshmallow with a 1 tablespoon of melted chocolate and gently press 2nd cookie, bottom side down, on top of the marshmallow, chocolate and 1st cookie.  Press top and bottom of cookies to form a sandwich.  Allow for the softened marshmallow and melted chocolate to ooze out of the cookie. This is where you may need to lick your fingers or call for an intervention!
  • Continue to make the remainder cookies. Enjoy immediately… there is no need to wait!  Left over sandwich cookies may be kept in an air tight container.  However, we doubt there will be any left 🙂
