Cook: Double Dark Chocolate Cookies with Marshmallows (No added sugar)

Crunchy on the outside, soft inside!
Difficulty: 3/5

Inspired by one of the post in Facebook SHC Group, decided to make some Chocolate Chips Marshmallows Cookies since I have a big packet of marshmallow lying around....

Plus, i love chewy cookies and always buy them at "Reduced to Clear" section in Sainsburry when I was studying in UK, so wanted to try and see if i can make some myself :)

Found one recipe online (Chocolate Marshmallows Cookies) and looks easy enough. As there are plenty of chocolate chips and marshmallows in the recipe, i omitted the sugars and it still tasted great! 

However, I did a mistake by not hiding the marshmallow inside the dough so after baking, the exposed marshmallow becomes quite crispy. Other than that, it was yummy! Will definitely make this again soon and i am gonna to hide all the marshmallow on my next attempt :)

INGREDIENTS:

1. 1/4 cup of butter, softened at room temperature and a little more for greasing
2. 1 egg
3. 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract

6. 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda (bicarbonate soda)

6. Place a baking sheet onto the baking pan, grease the baking sheet with butter.
7. Depending on the size of cookies intended, roll the dough into small ball, ensure that the marshmallow goes into the cookies and not on top of the cookies to ensure that the marshmallow will not get burn during the baking process.
