Chocolate Mallow Cookies

Cocoa, marshmallows and ready-made frosting transform the basic dough into these delightful treats. Sometimes, I’ll top each with a pecan half. —Gloria McBride, Payson, Utah

    I made the chocolate cookie dough but instead rolled it around unwrapped chocolate kisses. While warm I rolled in powdered sugar then rolled them in powdered sugar again when completely cooled. I also made a peanut butter filled version. I mixed together 6 T each of peanut butter and powdered sugar and 1/2 T melted butter. I formed the peanut butter into balls and wrapped them with the chocolate dough. I dipped the tops i coarse sugar before baking. Delicious.

    A unique version of the Basic Cookie Dough. Gloria (the Author), says she added sugar, cocoa, eggs, milk, chopped pecans, 20 large marxhmallows, halved, can of chocolate frosting, and 'pecan halves' to finish with. In the photo there is a chocolate icing star piped onto the puffed marshmallow - Gloria may top that chocolate with the pecan half? It has to be tried to resolve the questions.
