I found these pictures back in the depths of my picture file. I then found out that I never shared this recipe with you. It is from Christmas time. Shall we sing jingle bells? Ok, you start….
I figure instead of sitting on the pictures until this coming Christmas…I would just share it now. Mkay? Geter done people:)
By the way, these taste good any time of year:) Bake some up and share…I think I will make some today….these pics are reminding me of how yummy they are….#drool
I used wax paper to contain my dry ingredients….less clean up. Mix butter and sugar, along with other wet ingredients….The highest quality cocoa will produce the richest chocolate flavor:)
Make sure you let the cookies cool before you pipe any icing on….

(adapted from Martha)
- 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup cocoa powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- ½ cup milk
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 12 large marshmallows, cut in half horizontally
- 2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- ¼ cup milk
- ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg, milk, and vanilla, and beat until well combined. Add reserved flour mixture; mix on low speed until combined.
- Drop scoops of dough on parchment or silpat. Bake until cookies begin to spread and become firm, 10 to 12 minutes.
- Remove baking sheets from oven, and place a marshmallow, cut-side down, in the center of each cookie, pressing down slightly. Return to oven, and continue baking until marshmallows begin to melt, 2 to 2½ minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.
- Pipe frosting on top.
- Place confectioners' sugar in a medium bowl. Whisk in butter and cocoa powder. Add milk and vanilla, and whisk until well combined.
