I make rich, fudgy cookies that taste like brownies with a marshmallow filling. I usually use heart-shaped cutters, but I've also left them uncut and filled with pink marshmallow creme.—Kelly Ward, Stratford, ON

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Refrigerate, covered, 1 hour or until firm enough to shape.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Shape level tablespoons of dough into balls; place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 6-8 minutes or until cookies are set. Using a 1-1/4-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter, score the center of half of the cookies. Cool completely on pans on wire racks.

"They looked so pretty but baked flat like pancakes and unsalvageable. The fluff was VERY difficult to work with and sadly I had to throw away anyway after working in the red food coloring. I saved a few mini hearts cut out from my pancakes. My girls and I made for Valentine's Day and such a disappointment."

"Very easy to make. I tried it with a marshmallow fluff icing. I found its easier to spread in an icing."
