Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies
This past Sunday I was planning out our Super Bowl party menu and completely blanked on what I would make Ronnie's office for the week. Thankfully, I turned back to my trusty Taste of Home Baking Cookbook and found this gem. They were quick and easy to throw together in between making wings and my favorite pulled BBQ chicken in the crockpot. My husband thought they were chocolatey and dense which paired perfect with a glass of cold milk or in his case, straight from the carton.
To start you'll need the following ingredients:
- 1/2 cup of butter flavored shortening
- 3/4 cup of sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup of 2% milk
- 1 3/4 cup of flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- about 100 mini marshmallows or 19 large
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Combine shortening and sugar in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment mixing until light and fluffy.
Fully mix egg in along with vanilla and milk.
Slowly incorporate remaining dry ingredients. Dough will be on the thick side.
On a cookie sheet drop small tablespoons of dough and bake for 8 minutes.
Once done, add three to four mini marshmallows or one large marshmallow and bake for another two minutes.
To make the frosting you'll need:
- 2 cups of confectioner sugar
- 3 tablespoons of softened butter
- 3 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 4 to 6 tablespoons milk
Combine butter, salt, sugar, and cocoa powder in a bowl. Add milk one to two tablespoons at a time until desired consistency. Frost each cookie so the majority of the marshmallows are hidden. Enjoy!
*Sidenote* The recipe online for these cookies is slightly different than in the cookbook I have. I've used the cookbook recipe here and felt that they came out great.
And don't forget the pile of dishes at the end! Keepin it real ya'll.
