You Must Try These Cookies


I found this recipe for Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies on a cute little blog called meohmymama.blogspot.com. I made them for Sunday dinner and everyone devoured them! Here's the recipe
Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies

1 box chocolate cake mix
(this is the only cookie that I make with cake mix, and I prefer it to homemade versions I've tried?!)
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
1 bag large marshmallows

Ghiradelli Sweet Ground Chocolate and Cocoa powder
(Follow recipe for chocolate frosting on back.
You can use any chocolate frosting recipe, but I always use homemade and I love the taste of Ghiradelli.)

Mix all ingredients together and place balls of dough on greased cookie sheet.
(I like my cookies to be small so that marshmallow is in every bite. I use a scoop that is about 1" wide)
Bake in 350 degree oven for about 6 minutes.

While baking, cut large marshmallows in half.
Take cookies out of oven at 6 minutes and place one half of marshmallow - sticky (cut) side down!
Bake in oven for additional 2 minutes.

Marshmallows will come out puffy, I gently smash them down with spatula, then transfer to cooling rack.

Make desired chocolate frosting.
Frost tops of cookies.
And enjoy!
