Holy Momofuku Cornflake-Chocolate-Chip-Marshmallow Cookies & Teacher Appreciation Gift

Good Morning!


Could be my new favorite word.  I know it's Lil A's new fav.

Its definitely my new, favorite cookie!

Today, for Teacher Appreciation week at Lil A's school, it's bring your Teacher something to Eat!  So stay with me, we've done SUP and now E=Eat!  Some kids brought the teacher fruit (nice, healthy) and other kids brought Starbucks cards (yum!) but NOT us!  We went with a cookie that has everything sweet and sticky in it under the sun... that also happens to be the MOST DELICIOUS COOKIE EVER!

Lil A and I were watching something (I have no idea what!) and they were talking about a restaurant in NY, Momofuku Milk Bar and there were talking about the Momofuku Cornflake-Chocolate-Chip-Marshmallow Cookie and Lil A just thought the name was the. BEST. name. ever.  So, when I asked him what kind of cookie he wanted to make for his teacher, he cried out "Moooo-Moooo-Fu-Coooooo!!!!"  Seriously, it was the hilarious hearing him say the same.  So, I googled the cookie and found the recipe here.

It was time consuming, you have make the cornflake crunch first and let it cool, so I think we started making the cookies around 12:45 and ended up cooking the first batch at 3 pm (there's also fridge time, we weren't working on the cookies the whole time!).

We also baked the first batch a little too long... the recipe called for 18 minutes, and that's what we did, but I think we should've taken them out at the 16 minute mark.

We ended up putting the cookies into cello bags (1 cookie per bag) and I used WeR Washi Tape to close them up.  We put them in these super cute, wooden berry containers that I purchased from Michael's with a little shred.

I made the cookie tag with my Silhouette's Print and Cut feature. It's so cute! I tied ribbon into a bow onto a super big paperclip and used that to attach the tag to the berry container.

So, go on, make a Momofuku recipe!  And say Momofuku in as many fun, crazy voices as you can come up with - I'm telling you, it makes the cookies taste better.  I'm eager to try the Crack Pie and Strawberry Lemon Cake from Momofuku as well...

Have a great day- hopefully it's involves a cookie!
