Frosted Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies

Frosted Chocolate Marshmallow CookiesThis is my all time favorite cookie recipe which I have been making since I was a teen.  When I get a craving for chocolate and cookies at the same time (which unfortunately is way too frequent) this is always the recipe that comes to mind.

This cookie is all chocolatey and creamy inside.

Gradually add dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Cut large marshmellows in half or press 3 small marshmellows together in a flower shape for each cookie. Using a spoon, drop cookies on cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Remove sheet from oven and gently press marshmallows into center of cookie. Return to oven for 1-2 minutes (until marshmallows soften and start to become gooey). Do not overbake these cookies!

In a small heavy saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over low heat. Remove from the heat; cool for 5 minutes. In a large bowl, beat the confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Gradually beat in chocolate mixture until frosting is light and fluffy. Frost the top of cookies.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
