COOKIE SWAP - Surprise Cookies by Jennifer

This is a big, soft, cakey cookie.  My kids really loved these.  Their sweet and delicious and the surprise marshmallow under the frosting is really yummy.


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup of cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
12 marshmallows, cut in half horizontally
chocolate frosting for surprise cookies


1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
     In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder,baking soda, and salt
     set aside

2) In the bowl of an electric mixer cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy
    about 2 minutes. Add egg, milk and vanilla, and beat well. Add reserved flour mixture, mix
    on low speed until combined.

3) Using a tablespoon drop dough onto ungreased baking sheets, 2 inches apart.
     Bake until cookies begin to spread and become firm, 10 to 12 minutes.

4) Remove baking sheets from oven, and place marshmallow, cut -side down,in the center
     of each cookie, pressing down slightly. Return to over, and baking until marshmallow begin
     to melt, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes.
