2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 bag of marshmallows
1 package of Hershey minibars
- In a medium saucepan, melt together, butter and chocolate chips, Stir frequently, over low heat until smooth, and then let cool for about 10 minutes.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together; flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and cornstarch.
- Combine in a bowl, brown sugar, eggs, and the vanilla, beat on low speed until smooth.
- Mix the cooled chocolate mixture until blended. Add the flour mixture on low speed until it’s combined.
- Refrigerate the dough for at least an hour.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with a nonstick spray.
- Using a tablespoon scoop the dough and make a 1-inch ball. Place balls 1 inch apart on the cookie sheet. Bake until the tops of the cookies crack, about 12 minutes.
- Meanwhile, break mini Hershey bars into 2 square pieces.
- Remove the cookie sheets from the oven and place the Hershey piece in the middle of the cookie and cover it with a marshmallow.
- Quickly turn your oven to broil and place your cookie sheet back in the oven. Crack the door of the oven and watch until the marshmallow is golden brown.
- Take the cookie sheet out of the oven. Gently press down on the marshmallow and then let your cookies cool.
- Bake each batch on a clean sheet of parchment paper.
Optional: I drizzled chocolate sauce on top of the cookies.
