1 3/4 cups
unsweetened cocoa powder
large marshmallows, halved
unsweetened cocoa powder
I just made this cookies and they're very good! I used a small cookie scoop and got 32 cookies out of one batch. I didn't use pecans on top because my kids wouldn't eat them anyway. Instead of brushing the frosting on (I couldn't figure out how exactly to do that) I turned the cookies upside down and dipped the marshmallow portion into the warm frosting. Then I allowed the excess frosting to drip off before placing the cookie back on the cooling grid right side up. They're very nice looking cookies. The frosting has a nice sheen when it cools. I think I'll make some for the holidays and put some sprinkles on top while the frosting is still 'wet.' This recipe is a keeper for sure!
I had problems getting everything mixed to where it didn't fall apart all over the cookie sheet. Other than that, they tasted great!!
everyone loved them they did not last long!
Delicious cookies. As a plain chocolate cookie...ok, but with the marshmallow, awesome! I did leave out the pecan for personal preferance and i could probably go without the chocolate glaze. Perfect.
Loved these cookies! I actually looked up the ingredients hoping to find these, because my friend's similar recipe just said, "put a marshmallow on top." And I didn't know if it meant a large or small one. (I made large cookies and put a whole large marshmallow on top. My family loved it, but I am not big on marshmallows.) I think a halve of the large is perfect. As for the frosting: with the trouble everyone is having, try substituting the 1 cup of white sugar with 3 cups of powered sugar. (As my friend's recipe calls for. Here is the exact frosting recipe: 1 square unsweetened chocolate(or 3 tbsp. cocoa and 1 tbs. shortening or oil), 1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup milk, 3 cups powered sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Melt chocolate. Add butter and milk. Bring to a boil, while stirring constantly. Stir while boiling for 1 minute. Sift in powered sugar. Mix well. Add vanilla and stir in well. After you let cookies cool, frost them.) Do not overcook. I tried 10 minutes and they were too dry. Stick to 8 minutes. Good luck!
I'll be making these for a long time! I didn't use the frosting or nuts; they're fine the way they are. In the future, I'd like to brown the marshmallows slightly in order to give it a s'mores-style texture.
Wonderful cookies. I rarely give 5 stars but these deserve them! They were a huge, huge hit in our home. The cookie texture is soft, almost cake-like and not too sweet. A great treat, and not hard to make like some other reviews stated. It was not any messier than a standard cookie recipe. I
No kidding, one of the best cookies I have ever made. I read a review that had a lot to say about the mess which I didn't really understand. It was just a couple mixing bowls, measuring cups and a baking pan and some beaters to clean up just like any other cookie! I say make them for sure. I used mini marshmellows (2) since I didn't have any large and topped some with chopped nuts and some without. These are chewy and chocolatey like a brownie but with something "extra". As for the icing, brushing it on did seem like it may make it difficult so I just drizzled in on with a small spatula and they looked fabulous! You can't eat just one of these :)
