Ingredients

For the cookies

  • ½ cup butter softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup + 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 10 large marshmallows cut in half

For the fudge frosting

  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup or honey
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk or cream

Instructions

  • Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  • Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and cornstarch. Stir into the wet ingredients.
  • Chill the dough for at least 2 hours. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and bake for 9-11 minutes or until set. Do not over bake the cookies. They should like slightly doughy when they are taken out of the oven. Gently press 1/2 of a marshmallow on top of each cookie while they are still warm.
  • Let cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • To make the fudge frosting, add the melted butter, cocoa powder, corn syrup powdered sugar and milk or cream to a microwave safe bowl. Stir together and microwave for about 20 seconds. Stir again. Spoon over cooled cookies and let cool.
