Chocolate Mallow Drops Recipe

"I tell people these cookies are 'so good' and they are quick to agree after a taste," says field editor Marie Hattrup of Sparks, Nevada. Her fudgy treats feature a marshmallow layer topped with a squiggle of chocolate frosting.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 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
  • FROSTING:
  • 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

  • 1. 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, baking cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in pecans.
  • 2. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 6 minutes. Press a marshmallow half, cut side down, onto each cookie. 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.
  • 3. For frosting, in a microwave, melt butter and chocolates; stir until smooth. Whisk in confectioners' sugar and enough coffee to reach a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cookies. Let stand until set. Yield: about 3 dozen.
