Cocoa/Marshmallow Cookies Recipe

It was always a treat when Mom made these cookies—and let me help in the kitchen when she did. Nowadays, I always double the recipe because they disappear so fast. The marshmallow is a nice surprise because the frosting hides it.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 7, 2014

Thought I would make these for an afterschool treat for the kids today! They were very easy! I liked when you have to push down the marshmallow when it is hot! I need to work on my frosting as it didn't turn out as nice as this picture but hey the kids didn't mind! I wouldn't change a thing!
