Marshmallow Chocolate Cookies- Winners!

Marshmallow Brownie Cookies
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
  • Large marshmallows, cut in half
  • chocolate frosting
  1. With a mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla extract; mix well.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together flour, salt, soda, and cocoa.
  3. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture in thirds alternating with the milk. Stir in nuts if desired.
  4. Drop by teaspoon (I use my cookie scoop) onto a greased cookie sheet approximately 2 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees F for 9 minutes and remove from oven. (My total cooking time was about 9 minutes, but I used my small cookie scoop.  I added the marshmallow at about 7 minutes in.  Just do what works best for you- just don't overbake!)
  5. Immediately place a marshmallow piece (place with the sticky cut side down) on the top of each cookie and bake for 2 more minutes. When cookies are cool, frost each cookie with frosting.  Makes 2 1/2 dozen.
These are fun.  The kids love 'em, they look impressive, and they taste like a ding-dong, only better.  They don't take much extra time- I just tear apart the marshmallows and use canned frosting.  For chocolate flavor, the canned works just fine for me.  Try these!

These are good! I didn't realize how easy they were to make--I actually have everything on hand.
