  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 12 large marshmallows, cut in half horizontally

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Add egg, milk, and vanilla, and beat until well combined.
  • Add reserved flour mixture; mix on low speed until combined.
  • Using a tablespoon or 1 3/4-inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto ungreased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake until cookies begin to spread and become firm, 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Remove baking sheets from oven, and place a marshmallow, cut-side down, in the center of each cookie, pressing down slightly.
  • Return to oven, and continue baking until marshmallows begins to melt, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes.
  • Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.
  • Spread about 1 tablespoon of frosting over each marshmallow, starting in the center and continuing outward until marshmallow is covered.
