|I'm not lying about these ENORMOUS marshmallows|
inspired by Sugar Plum
-1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
-1 c. graham cracker crumbs, finely ground and divided
-1/3 c. sugar
-3/4 tsp. baking powder
-1/2 tsp. salt
-1/4 c. unsalted butter, melted
-1/2 of a 7 oz. jar of marshmallow creme
-1 large egg
-1/2 tsp. vanilla
-3/4 c. chocolate chips (milk or semi-sweet)
-8 oz. chocolate bark
-1 c. mini-marshmallows
-Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
-In a large bowl, whisk together flour, 1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a large mixing bowl or bowl of a stand mixer using the whisk attachment, whisk together the butter, marshmallow creme, egg, and vanilla until well combined. Switching to the paddle attachment, stir in dry ingredients until a stiff dough forms. Stir in chocolate chips.
-Dump dough onto cookie sheet and form two (approx. 5 inch length) "logs" but not round logs, biscotti shaped logs. Bake 30 minutes. Remove cookie sheet from oven. Cool logs for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees.
-Transfer logs to a cutting board. These will still be quite warm, watch for hot melted chocolate! Using a serrated knife, diagonally cut 1/2 inch thick slices, I got 6 cookies from each log. Place back on cookie sheet; bake 10 minutes, flip over and bake for another 10 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
-Melt chocolate bark in microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring each time. Repeat until completely melted and smooth. Dip half of the cooled biscotti in chocolate, immediately sprinkle with marshmallows first, then some of the reserved 1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs. Let cool on waxed paper until chocolate hardens. Sit out over night to get a dryer, crunchier biscotti.
I've never made biscotti before and it was super EASY! EASY! I had some pre-concieved notion it would be difficult because biscotti seems to be a pretentious cookie. Don't judge me for judging! I only see people enjoy it with espresso or tea, pinkies high in the air. It doesn't appear to be as easily accessible as say, a chocolate-chip cookie. But my oldest ate this up like any other kid-friendly cookie, chocolate-dipped end first of course!
