Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies

(Cookie on the left:pre-frosting, Cookie on right: post-frosting)

Hello everyone! I know that I should probably be posting another pumpkin recipe since tomorrow is the big turkey day, but I really wanted to tell you about these yummy chocolatey cookies! Chocolate is an ingredient that is used year round so it's totally acceptable for me to be posting a chocolate recipe around Thanksgiving, right? Anyways, these simple little cookies are great if you have some marshmallows that you need to use up. They are incredible right out of the oven. Well, I guess you have to let them cool just a smidge before you frost them, but don't wait too long! Yummy, warm, gooey, fudgey, marshmallowy delights! Trust me, these will send you into a sugar coma for sure. I found this recipe in an old Hooper 1st ward cookbook from 2006. MaryJane Arrant is the wonderful woman who gets credit for this recipe. Such a sweet woman. Thank you MaryJane for sharing this tasty recipe!
