  • 1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup milk (I use 2%)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 12 large marshmallows, halved


  • 3 Tablespoons salted butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • tiny pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup milk


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
    Place the shortening and sugar in a large bowl. Using an electric hand-mixer, beat together on medium speed until combined and fluffy. Slowly beat in milk, egg and vanilla extract until just combined.
  • In a separate medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda. Whisk to sift together. Slowly add this dry mixture into the wet mixture until combined.
    Scoop heaping tablespoons of batter onto the prepared baking sheets. You should get 24 cookies total. Bake for 7 minutes.
    Remove from oven and place one half marshmallow, cut side down, onto each warm cookie. Place cookies back in oven and bake another 2 minutes. Remove from oven and let cookies cool on the baking sheets.
  • Frosting: Place the butter and powdered sugar in a medium bowl. Using an electric hand-mixer, beat until combined. Beat in the cocoa powder and salt until smooth. Slowly mix in the milk until frosting reaches a thin, pourable consistency.
    Pour one tablespoon of frosting over each marshmallow on the cooled cookies. Serve and enjoy!
