CCC #2 ~ Chocolate Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookies

I love that I got to type chocolate twice in that title.  Go back and read it again.  Just for fun.  Thank you.

These cookies are an oldie...I made them up over 15 years ago.  I make them very infrequently, and every time I make them I wonder why I don't make them more often.  They are a very rich, brownie-like cookie.  And I'm very tired, so I'm going to cut right to it and just list the recipe!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookies

3 cups flour
2/3 cup cocoa (Hershey's Dark, please)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 pkg. mini chocolate chips
mini marshmallows, frozen

In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.  In a large mixing bowl (use your stand mixer if you have one, this is a very stiff dough!), combine softened butter and sugars.  Beat until creamy and fluffy.  Beat in eggs.  Add in flour mixture in small amounts, just until blended.  Stir in chocolate chips.

(make sure the marshmallows are in the freezer.  they need to be frozen or they will melt too much while baking.)

Using the 1 1/2 inch cookie scooper (or just make about 1 1/2 inch balls), scoop out 6 balls of dough. 

Flatten each ball into a disk about the size of the palm of your hand.  Place 4 mini marshmallows in the center of each disk, then fold the dough up to cover marshmallows completely. 

Roll the dough between your palms to make it back into a ball shape, making sure the marshmallows are covered on all sides.  Place onto parchment-lined baking sheets (6 per sheet). 

Bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool on pan for 2-3 minutes, then remove to cookie sheets to cool completely.

In honor of chocolate chip cookie week, Costco is running a coupon for their 72 oz. Nestle chocolate chips!  Okay, I'm sure it's not in honor of this week, just a blissful coincidence.  But still, don't miss out on a great deal!!
