This recipe was inspired by Jack Jack’s Cookie Num Nums. It’s my tried and true recipe and will calm any baby, no matter the size, with one bite! Or at least it works for my two year old and my younger brothers. This is a cookie sandwich recipe, but these chewy cookies are delicious on their own. The secret to a perfectly chewy cookie is taking them out of the oven when they are just starting to brown and then letting them finish baking on the cookie sheet before moving them to cool. I do have to warn you… they are incredibly sweet. Make sure you have plenty of ice cold milk on hand.
Cookie Num Nums
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 3/4 cup flour
2 cups dark chocolate chips morsels
1/2 cup shortening
3 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
8 ounces of marshmallow fluff, or half a tub
DirectionsPreheat oven to 375°. In a large mixing bowl, mix together very soft butter, sugars, salt, and vanilla. Add egg and mix until well blended. Then, add baking soda and flour. Once mixture is combined, stir in chocolate chips. Scoop rounded teaspoons of dough onto parchment covered baking sheets. Flatten into disks, using the bottom of a glass. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are slightly browned. Remove the cookies from the oven, then let them rest on the baking sheet for 5 mins. Move them to a rack to cool completely.
To make the cream, place shortening and marshmallow fluff in a large mixing bowl. At low speed, slowly beat in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Turn the mixer on high and beat for 2 to 3 minutes.
Spread a tablespoon of cream filling on half of the cookies bottoms. Then top with another cookie bottom to create a sandwich.
