1 cup instant milk chocolate hot cocoa mix
1 teaspoon baking soda
24 large marshmallows, cut in half crosswise
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
6 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
*Substitute 48 holiday-shaped marshmallows. Do not cut in half.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine 3/4 cup butter and sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs, 1/4 cup milk and vanilla. Continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, cocoa mix and baking soda. Beat until well mixed.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-9 minutes or until set. Remove from oven; top each cookie with marshmallow half, cut-side down. Continue baking for 1-2 minutes until marshmallow just begins to puff. Immediately remove cookies to cooling racks. Cool completely.

Immediately spoon glaze over cooled cookies. Store between sheets of waxed paper in a loosely covered container.
- Cool and clean cookie sheets between batches. The cookies may stick slightly to the sheet.
- If glaze gets too thick to drizzle, beat in 1 additional teaspoon of milk.

Love these! Have made them a few times and never had a problem, they always turn out great!
These cookies are a holiday favorite. For those who have made them and had them turn out poorly I suggest making sure you're using fresh and good quality hot cocoa mix. I made a batch one year with old cocoa mix and it effected the quality of the cookie.
This receipe is a huge hit at family functions but takes hours and hours to do it. This year I tried to double it and it was an unqualified disaster. Make exactly as states or with a bit more cocoa and flour to thicken the dough.
