  • 8 (1 ounce) envelopes instant hot cocoa mix

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Marshmallow Glaze:

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 5 large marshmallows

  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

Substitute 1 handful mini marshmallows for the big marshmallows if preferred.
