Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Combine brown sugar and butter in a bowl; beat until creamy. Beat in egg. Mix in flour, 1/2 of the chopped chocolate, cocoa powder, and baking powder until dough comes together.

  • Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto a cookie sheet, allowing enough room for the cookies to spread. Flatten slightly.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are done but tops are a bit gooey, about 5 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven. Push remaining chocolate and mini marshmallows into the tops. Continue baking until tops are set, about 5 minutes more. Be careful to remove cookies before marshmallows burn.

Cook's Note:

This recipe lends itself well to variation. I have made them with a number of different additions, like sliced almonds or different types of chocolate chips.

Originally my daughter and I weren't incredibly impressed with this recipe but I have to say sitting in Tupperware on the counter for a day has completely changed my opinion. Maybe it gave the flavors a chance to do their thing or something but they're fabulous! I do think that it would be nice to add some chopped pecans but other than that I'd leave this one alone!
