Ingredients

Cookie

3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1/2 cup sugar

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1/4 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup instant milk chocolate hot cocoa mix

1 teaspoon baking soda

24 large marshmallows,  cut in half crosswise

Glaze

1 3/4 cups powdered sugar

6 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

1/4 cup milk

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

 

 *Substitute 48 holiday-shaped marshmallows. Do not cut in half.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. 

  2. STEP 2

    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.

  3. STEP 3

    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.

  4. STEP 4

    Place powdered sugar into bowl; set aside. Combine all remaining glaze ingredients in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil; boil 1 minute. Remove from heat; cool 5 minutes. Pour mixture over powdered sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy.

  5. STEP 5

    Immediately spoon glaze over cooled cookies. Store between sheets of waxed paper in a loosely covered container.

Tip #1

- Cool and clean cookie sheets between batches. The cookies may stick slightly to the sheet.

Tip #2

- If glaze gets too thick to drizzle, beat in 1 additional teaspoon of milk.
