cornflake choc chip cookies

I've parted with many recipe books recently but haven't brought myself to give up on Momofuku Milk Bar just yet. The recipes aren't hard but I personally find that it packs in a lot of sugar. I can't bear to eat overly sweet things anymore so I was mostly admiring Tosi's flavour combinations. I've been reading the book for the past week eyeing the cornflake chocolate chip marshmallow cookies. Here's my less indulgent take which I think are pretty awesome!

A few colleagues asked for the recipe and since I'm typing it up, I thought I'd post it here as well.

Over and out!

Fold in the chocolate chips and the cornflake crunch until just combined.

Scoop out even sized balls of cookie dough and place on a lined baking tray. Chill in the fridge overnight.

Put cookie dough balls onto a lined baking tray leaving 4-5cm intervals between them. Flatten slightly with the back of a cup.
