Hot Chocolate & Marshmallow Cookies

I was in the mood to bake this weekend so I went on the hunt for a yummy new recipe. I found these hot chocolate and marshmallow cookies on pinterest and they did not disappoint. They aren't overly sweet and really do taste like hot chocolate! On my 2nd batch, I left them in the oven too long, after I put the marshmallow on top. They started to slide everyone and look crazy haha! So just leave them in for the recommended four minutes. :)

Here is the recipe:

1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup)
12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoon bakin powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups (packed) brown sugar
3 eggs, at room temp.
1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
30 marshmallows (I didn't use this many)
7.5 ounce semisweet chocolate bars cut into 1/2 inch squares

1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate chops on medium low heat, stirring frequently. Once melted, remove from burner and allow to cool for 15 minutes.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.

3. In a mixer, mix together the eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Add the cooled melted chocolate. Lastly, add the dry flour ingredients in two batches, into the dough. **The dough will be very thick, almost like a cake batter. Allow to chill in the fridge for an hour.

4. Once the dough is chilled, line baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on the parchment paper. Slightly flatten with a spoon.

5. Back at 325 degrees for about 12 minutes or until the cookies edges start to crack. While they are baking cut the marshmallows and stick one square of chocolate in the cut side.

6. Once the cookies are done, remove from the oven and stick a marshmallow on top (chocolate side down). Put back in the oven for 4 minutes. Remove from pan and transfer to a cooling rack.
