Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 18 to 22 large marshmallows, halved
  • ICING:
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1 ounce semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 to 6 tablespoons brewed coffee

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, milk and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in pecans.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 6 minutes. Press a marshmallow half onto each cookie, cut side down. Bake 2-3 minutes longer or until edges of cookies are set and marshmallows are softened. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

"These are so good and really easy! I did find that with my oven I had to bake them about 2 minutes more to make them firm enough to handle once they cooled. I HIGHLY recommend baking them on parchment paper or a liner so that the cookies don't fall apart while removing them from the pan or while on the cooling rack. I am making these for gifts, and have already been asked to bring them to every Christmas party for the rest of the year."

"I can't believe there aren't more reviews on this cookie! These are AMAZING. The chocolate base has a perfect chewy brownie texture, and the marshmallow and drizzle of icing take them over the top. This is definitely a new favorite cookie recipe for me!"
