  • 2 cups organic all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsps cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup pure cane sugar
  • 3/4 cup organic brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temp. (Usually 1 1/2 sticks)
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, room temp.
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 Ghirardelli chocolate bar, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows


  1. Using an electric stand mixer (fitted with a paddle attachment), cream together the softened butter and both sugars on medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes. Next, add the eggs and mix on high until well combined (for another 1 minute). Be sure to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl if needed. Finally, add the vanilla extract, mixing everything on high speed until combined. Set aside.

  2. Now, in a large bowl, toss together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, cornstarch, and sea salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on low until fully combined.

  3. Add the chocolate chips and mix for about 5 seconds until well incorporated.

  4. Cover the dough tightly with plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator (or 30 minutes in the freezer). 

  5. Remove the cookie dough from the refrigerator and allow it to sit a bit at room temperature (about 10 minutes). Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

  6. Once chilled, work the dough with your hands, rolling them into individual balls, about 1.5 Tbsps of dough each.

  7. Then bake the cookies for about 10-11 minutes, until barely golden brown around the edges. **NOTE: About 2-3 minutes before cookies are finished, add marshmallows and chopped chocolate bar pieces to each cookie by gently inserting them.**

  8.  **NOTE: They will look extremely soft when you remove them from the oven, but allowing them to cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet will make them set.** Next, transfer the cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.

  9. Bon Appetit!
