Cook's Notes

If you're putting two sheets in the oven at a time, switch top and bottom sheets halfway through for more even baking. To stack cookies, wait until frosting dries, then place waxed paper in between the layers to keep the frosting from smearing.

    Easy, used a #20 scoop and got 19 cookies. Baked 9 minutes, added marshmallow for about 2-3 minutes. Only made half the frosting and it was the perfect amount though it was runny and I needed to add more powdered sugar, but it was smooth with just my whisking and coated the cookies easily. Teens loved them - I'm not a marshmallow fine but liked the brownie-ness of the cookie.

    Yummy & rich! Tips based on my experience - 12 fit on a full size sheet pan, they don't melt down flat so don't worry about them sticking together. I baked for 9 minutes, put the marshmallow on each (press it in a little), then another 2-and-a-half minutes for the marshmallow to soften. To flatten it more, I pushed down on it a bit with my fingers, a spoon would work too! I used my hand mixer for the frosting, still has little tiny lumps so I topped with chocolate sprinkles. Cake-like & yummy!

      What's not mentioned in the frosting directions is to sift the confectioners sugar, then measure & use. Non-sifted conf. sugar will become lumpy.

    These are my favorite cookies! And everyone who tasted them loved them too. I added a few chocolate chips in the cookies and have a soft and crunchy feel at the same time! It is the best recipie for the ones who love chocolate.

    After reading problem others had with dry cookies, I underbaked to 9 minutes, put the marshmallow on and baked only another minute. For the frosting, I sifted the sugar and cocoa, added the vanilla and melted butter and beat with hand mixer. I added milk gradually, beating well and it was smooth and glossy. I made them for a bake sale, but I had to sample one. It was very cake-like, almost like a mini cupcake. Will definitely make these again.

    I make these but I use Betty Crocker double choc. chunk cookies mix. Great! Everyone loves them and they do not last long enough to even put in the refrig.

    Great cookies but I tweaked a bit. I added 1 tsp. of instant coffee to the batter. Just makes it more chocolatey (doesn't taste like coffee) and I didn't make the icing. I made chocolate ganache (semi sweet chocolate with a bit of cream) and poured it over the cookies on a rack. They were like homemade Mallomars. Very decadent and EASY! Will make tons for Christmas.

    I think these taste even better if you use salted butter, or add a pinch of salt!
