Prize-Winning Recipe 2009! Indulge in chocolate-frosted cookies with a marshmallow center made easier with a cookie mix.

  • Servings: 2 dozen
  • Prep Time: 45 min
  • Total Time: 65 min

Ingredients:

Cookies:
1 Pouch (1 Lb 1.5 Oz) Betty Crocker® Double Chocolate Chunk Cookie Mix
¼ Cup Vegetable Oil
2 Tablespoons Water
1 Egg
Cup Chopped Pecans
12 Large Marshmallows, cut in half
Frosting:
1 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips, 6 oz
Cup Whipping Cream
1 Teaspoon Butter or Margarine
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
½ Cup Powdered Sugar

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, oil, water, egg and pecans until soft dough forms.

2. On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart.

3. Bake 7 minutes. Remove from oven; immediately press marshmallow half lightly, cut side down, on top of cookie. Bake 1 to 2 minutes longer or just until marshmallows begin to soften. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, in 1-quart nonstick saucepan, melt chocolate chips over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat. Add whipping cream, butter and vanilla; blend well. Stir in powdered sugar until smooth.

5. Spread frosting over each cooled cookie, covering marshmallow. Let stand until frosting is set.
