Recipe byTessa Arias
1stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1cupgranulated sugar, divided
1/2cuplightly packed dark brown sugar
1 1/2teaspoonsground ginger
1/4 teaspoonground cloves
1/2 teaspoonfine salt
1 1/2teaspoonsbaking soda
2 1/4cups(10.12 ounces) all-purpose flour
1cup(6 ounces) milk chocolate chips (You can also use Hershey's bars if you want)
Marshmallow fluff (see post note)
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy, 2 minutes. Add the molasses and egg and beat until combined. Add in the ginger, cinnamon, cloves, salt, baking soda, and flour and beat until combined.
Place the remaining 1/2 cup sugar in a shallow dish. Scoop the dough into 1 1/2 tablespoon balls and roll in the sugar before placing on the baking sheet. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes.
In a heat safe bowl melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring between each burst, until just melted. Dollop the chocolate over the middle bottom side of half of the cookies. Spread a dollop of marshmallow fluff on the bottom side of the remaining cookies. Using a kitchen torch, lightly toast the marshmallow fluff, being careful not to scorch the actual cookie. Sandwich a marshmallow cookie with a chocolate cookie. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
If using whole marshmallows, roast the marshmallows over a fire pit, a stove burner, or using a kitchen torch until golden brown. Place the marshmallow over the chocolate and sandwich with another cookie. Serve immediately.
