Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare cookie sheets with parchment paper or use silicone mats.
  • Partially melt butter in a microwave safe dish in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. Approximately half should still be slightly solid. In a large bowl cream together the butter and the two sugars with an electric hand mixer for about 2 minutes. Mix in egg and vanilla until fully combined.
  • In a second large bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt. Add dry mixture to the wet mixture, and mix with the electric hand mixer until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Form dough into small balls, approximately 1" each and place on cookie sheet with 12 dough balls per sheet.
  • Bake cookies for 10 minutes. Remove from oven then quickly and gently press 3-4 marshmallows into each cookie. Return cookies to oven and make for another 2 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
