    Cookie Ingredients

    1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    3/4 cup cocoa powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
    1 cup sugar
    1 large egg
    1/2 cup milk
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    16 large marshmallows, cut in half horizontally

    Frosting Ingredients

    2 cups confectioners' sugar
    4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
    1/4 cup cocoa powder
    1/4 cup milk
    1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


Cookie Directions

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.
Using a tablespoon or 1 3/4-inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto ungreased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. 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 2 1/2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.
Spread about 1 tablespoon of frosting over each marshmallow, starting in the center and continuing outward until marshmallow is covered.

Frosting Directions

Place confectioners' sugar in a medium bowl. Whisk in butter and cocoa powder. Add milk and vanilla, and whisk until well combined.

Serving Size: Makes 31 - 1 tbsp size cookies
