You know when you get that craving for chocolate and there is nothing you can do about it except to give in? That happens to me weekly.
I looked in my pantry and wondered what would go good with this chocolate craving and saw a jar of marshmallow creme staring me right in the face. Chocolate and marshmallow go perfect together in my book.
These cookies were a cross between two of my previous posts, Homemade Oreo Cookies and Mississippi Mud Cake. I absolutely LOVE the cookie recipe because it only has 3 ingredients and they taste delicious! I used the same cookie recipe as those Oreos (only halved it) and used the idea of a marshmallow/chocolate frosting topping from the Mississippi Mud. It was perfect. My taste buds were thanking me with every bite (although my hips might not have…don’t worry we settled that battle on the elliptical later that day)
CHOCOLATE MARSHMALLOW COOKIES
1 box of chocolate cake mix
1/3 cup oil
Mix all ingredients together and roll into small balls. Gently flatten.Bake 350 F for 8-10 minutes. BUT DO NOT OVER BAKE! Its better to be a little undercooked but not over cooked. The softer the better.
Marshmallow Creme Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 tsp salt
1 jar marshmallow creme
1/2 tsp vanilla
2-3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
Beat butter and marshmallow creme until smooth. Mix in salt and vanilla. Add in powdered sugar and milk. Adjust levels of powdered sugar and milk to get to desired consistency-adding more powdered sugar to make it thicker and more milk to make it thinner.
You could just leave the Marshmallow Frosting to speak for itself, or you can keep going with the awesomeness and add a layer of chocolate frosting too!
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 Tbsp. milk
8 oz. powdered sugar
Beat ingredients together adjusting milk/powdered sugar to get desired consistency.
When cookies are cooled, spread on Marshmallow Creme Frosting.
Next spread on a little chocolate frosting.
