Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg, then stir in the 1/4 cup milk and vanilla. Combine the flour, 1/3 cup cocoa and baking soda; stir into the creamed mixture. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove cookie sheet and press marshmallow halves into the center of each cookie cut side down. Return the cookies to the oven for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from the oven and press lightly on the cookies to flatten slightly. Remove cookies to wire racks to cool.
  4. To make the icing: In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa, 1/4 cup milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/4 cup butter. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally, and let boil for 1 minute. Brush the cookies with the frosting then top each one with a pecan half before the icing sets.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I just made this cookies and they're very good! I used a small cookie scoop and got 32 cookies out of one batch. I didn't use pecans on top because my kids wouldn't eat them anyway. Instead of brushing the frosting on (I couldn't figure out how exactly to do that) I turned the cookies upside down and dipped the marshmallow portion into the warm frosting. Then I allowed the excess frosting to drip off before placing the cookie back on the cooling grid right side up. They're very nice looking cookies. The frosting has a nice sheen when it cools. I think I'll make some for the holidays and put some sprinkles on top while the frosting is still 'wet.' This recipe is a keeper for sure!

Delicious cookies. As a plain chocolate cookie...ok, but with the marshmallow, awesome! I did leave out the pecan for personal preferance and i could probably go without the chocolate glaze. Perfect.
