Those of you that know me or read this blog know that A) I love Momofuku Milk Bar B) My favorite cookie they have is Cornflake Marshmallow Chocolate Chip and C) I live way too close to their KITCHEN. While not a full Milk Bar, they DO have a small retail counter in the front where you can order cookies and cake truffles (tiny bite-sized hyper-condensed cake rolled in cake crumbs) by the dozen and pies. There’s no ice cream yet, but I’ve been told by the man who works there who sees me way too often that they are planning to have everything, including cereal milk and pork buns, within the year. YES. I should probably move before that happens.
As you may or may not know, Momofuku actually has a cookbook out, which I have yet to get for myself but which has provided us foodies with such recipe gems as CRACK PIE (which I shared the recipe for here), PORK BUNS, and MOMOFUKU-STYLE FRIED CHICKEN. You know, all the super healthy stuff. And now…Cornflake Marshmallow Chocolate Chip Cookies.
And not just regular cornflakes. CARAMELIZED SALTED cornflakes. Caramelized salted cornflakes that melt together with sticky marshmallows and creamy chocolate to make what I consider to be THE ultimate cookie. Better than the Compost in my humble opinion. But then again I have been the world’s #1 fan of S’mores since I was 5. Just ask my nanny.
Just take my word for it and make these cookies. STAT. And don’t think about how many calories they have.
