Cookie Week – Chocolate Surprise Cookies

I’ve been making these for a few years now, and they have turned into one of my families favorites. It might have something to do with the fact that the cookie part tastes more like cake than cookie, or it could just be the overload of chocolate! I know it isn’t much of a surprise if the marshmallows are peaking out, but my frosting was a bit warmer than it should have been, and that made it harder to work with. Still yummy though!

Chocolate Surprise Cookies
(3 dozen)

1¾ c. Flour
¾ c. Cocoa Powder
½ t. Baking Soda
½ t. Salt
8 T. Softened Butter (1 stick)
1 c. Sugar
1 lg Egg
½ c. Milk
1 t. Vanilla
Marshmallows – (I normally use mini, but this time we cut big ones in half)
Frosting (recipe below)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the milk, egg, and vanilla to the butter and mix until well combined.
Slowly add the flour mix to the butter mix until completely incorporated.
Drop  tablespoonfuls (or cookie scoops) onto a greased cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes.
(The cookie will look puffed up, and like it isn’t done in the center but take it out anyway!)
Press marshmallows into the warm cookies and set aside to cool.


2 c. Powdered Sugar
4 T. Melted butter (½ stick)
¼ c. Cocoa Powder
¼ c. Milk
¼ t. Vanilla
Whisk all the ingredients together and frost the cookies when they are completely cool.

As you can see, there are no complaints about these ones around here!
