Hot Chocolate Cookies

It's been so cold this week, so a recipe with hot chocolate in the name seemed perfect. These cookies were really cute with marshmallows and chocolate frosting on top.

This recipe is from Glorious Treats.

-1 stick butter
-12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
-1 1/2 cups flour
-1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
-1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1 1/4 cups brown sugar
-3 eggs
-1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

-25 large marshmallows

-2 cups powdered sugar
-4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
-1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
-1/4 cup hot water
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Blend the eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla with a mixer.
Melt butter and chocolate on half power in the microwave.
Mix in with the egg and brown sugar.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking
powder,and salt. Mix into the chocolate mixture.
Cover in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for an hour.
Scoop out onto a cookie sheet with wax paper.
Bake for 12 minutes at 325.
Cut the marshmallows in half and put them on on the cookies.
Bake for another few minutes.
Mix together the ingredients for the frosting.
Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.
Top with frosting, put wax paper underneath because a lot drips off.

I really liked these, I thought the frosting was the best part, I couldn't stop eating it, I kept eating the drips that fell off the cookies.In the original, sprinkles were put on top, but I didn't think you could really see them well on the dark frosting so I left them off.
