4 dozen cookies

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.

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. 
  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. 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. 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. Immediately spoon glaze over cooled cookies. Store between sheets of waxed paper in a loosely covered container.

Recipe Tips

- 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.

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.

We re-tested the recipe and did not have the cookie batter melt over the pan. I suggest that if the cookie melts during baking you might want to add some additional flour so the dough would be firmer.

I tried these cookies for our annual Cookie exchange & they went over well.

I was disappointed with this cookie.It was not fun to make and it was time consuming. I thought it would have been very chocolatey, but it was rather boring! I was expecting a great combination of flavorings. Sorry Land O Lakes, I was not impressed with this recipe. I am still a loyal fan!!

The flavor was bland. Even my kids did not like them. They came out flat, and even on parchment paper, they stuck. These were a miserable failure.

These cookies are soooo good! They won me the "best cookie" at a Cookie Swap this year. I also brought them into work and everyone loved them. I did have to up the amount of powdered sugar in the icing so it would thicken a little more. Otherwise they are great!!

I knew the recipe would be time consuming, but I didn't expect the goodies to be consumed as fast as they were eaten. Tastes just like cocoa, hard to eat just one. I even made my own cocoa mix so I have plenty on hand to make more of these goodies.
