Hot Cocoa Cookies

This is a cookie that everyone liked, and that doesn’t happen very often!

For this you will need:

For the cookies:
1/2 cup butter
1-1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate
1-1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1-1/2 cup baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1-1/4 cup brown sugar
3 large eggs
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
12 large marshmellows cut in half (my cookies must have been smaller because I needed 19 marshmallows)
For the icing:
2 cup powdered sugar
4 tbs butter, melted
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup hot water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
colorful sprinkles

For the cookies:
Melt the butter and chocolate, stirring frequently. Once melted, set aside to cool.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.

In a standing mixer, beat the sugar, eggs, and vanilla on low speed until combined.

Add the cooled chocolate and mix until combined. Gradually add in the flour ingredients and mix well until combined. Scoop the dough (will be brownie like texture) into a bowl and cover with foil. Place into the fridge for 3 hours.
Preheat oven to 325° and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using a cookie scoop, scoop some batter into your hands and roll into a ball.

Place cookies about 2 inches apart.

Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes. While cookies are baking, cut the marshmallows in half. Once cookies are baked, place a marshmallow into the center of the cookies and lightly press down. Place cookies back into the oven for another 3 minutes.

Once cookies are done baking, let cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack that has been placed over a parchment lined cookie sheet. This will allow the icing to drip off.

For the icing:
Combine all the icing ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix until combined. If the icing is still to thick, add about 3 tbs of hot water to it to thin it out.

Using a spoon, spoon some icing onto the marshmallow on the cookie. Sprinkle a little bit of sprinkles onto the cookies. Only do a few cookies at a time as icing will harden quickly.
