  • Makes
    about 3 dozen


  • 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

  • 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


  • 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.

    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!
