Chocolate Marshmallow Meltaways

Tried & True Recipes

Chocolate Marshmallow Meltaways - soft, chocolate cookies topped with a marshmallow and delicious chocolate frosting.

Hi guys!

I know you just heard from me yesterday, but its hard not to post when there are so many good recipes to share. I’m taking a break from soup and veggies to share a scrumptious treat. In fact, the next few Tried and True recipes will all be sweets. Sorry, but not sorry! ;

These Chocolate Marshmallow Meltaways were quick to make and easy to eat! I’ve never been a fan of butter flavored shortening, so we used regular. Other than that, we stuck close to the original recipe. Why mess up a good thing? I loved the combination of the thick, chewy cookie, with the fluffy marshmallow in the middle, and the silky frosting on top. So good! And it makes a lot, so this is a great recipe for your next holiday party!

Here is the recipe…

 
Serves: 36
Ingredients
  • ½ cup shortening
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup baking cocoa
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 18 large marshmallows, halved
FROSTING:
  • 3 TB butter, softened
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 TB baking cocoa
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 4 - 6 TB milk
Instructions
  1. Cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, milk and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda; gradually add dry mixture to shortening and mix well.
  2. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 7 minutes. Remove from oven and press a marshmallow half, cut side down, onto each cookie; bake for 2 minutes longer. Remove to cool.
  3. In a small bowl, beat butter, powdered sugar, cocoa and salt until smooth. Add milk to achieve your desired consistency. Frost and Enjoy!
