chocolate marshmallow surprise cookies (+ a little country update)

One of my family’s favorite recipes are these chocolate marshmallow surprise cookies – and after dozens of begs and pleas to pleeeaaaasseeee make these cookies, I remembered why they’re my favorite cookie in the world too!

I made about 40 of these cookies on Friday. By Sunday, every last crumb was devoured. And that’s without my help in eating them! I was in class (my 3rd to last MBA class EVER) Friday night, all day Saturday, and Sunday afternoon, hence the lack of blogging these past few days.

Summer school, you are so not conducive to my blogging schedule!

The best part of my weekend, aside from these cookies, was seeing Luke Bryan, The Band Perry, and Tim McGraw in concert! Though I have to say, Luke Bryan definitely stole the show!

Chocolate Marshmallow Surprise Cookies

Adapted from

Ingredients for Cookies
1 stick of butter, at room temperature
1 cup of granulated sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup of milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups of flour
3/4 cup of cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
20 large marshmallows (cut in half horizontally)

Ingredients for Frosting
2 cups of powdered sugar
1/2 stick of butter, melted
1/4 cup of cocoa powder
1/3 cup of milk
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Cream butter and granulated sugar in electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk, vanilla extract, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix until combined.

3. Drop small 1-inch drops of dough onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake until cookies are firm (though not entirely cooked) for about 8 to 10 minutes.

4. Remove baking sheets from oven and quickly press half of a marshmallow (cut-side down) in the center of each cookie.

5. Return cookie sheets to oven and bake for 2 minutes until marshmallows start to melt. Let cool.

6. To make the frosting, whisk together powdered sugar, butter, cocoa powder, milk, and vanilla until well-combined.

7. Once cool, add enough frosting to cover the entire marshmallow. Trust me, this is not something you want to skimp on! Enjoy!

    Oh Star! They look scrumptious! I’m definitely going to try these. The kids will love them.

    By the way, I don’t think you’ll be the oldest person at the cinema to see “Cars”. My husband and I are diehard fans and I don’t think we’ll be the only ones. LOL
