Chocolate Marshmallow Pillows (Betty Crocker prize winning recipe, 2009)
1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® double chocolate chunk cookie mix
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons water (I used 1 TBSP water and 1 TBSP vanilla)
2/3 cup chopped pecans (optional)
12 large marshmallows, cut in half
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)
1/3 cup whipping cream or milk
1 teaspoon butter
1 TBSP vanilla
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, oil, water, egg and pecans until soft dough forms.
2. On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart.
3. Bake 7 minutes. Remove from oven; immediately press marshmallow half lightly, cut side down, on top of cookie. Bake 1 to 2 minutes longer or just until marshmallows begin to soften. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, in 1-quart nonstick saucepan, melt chocolate chips over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat. Add whipping cream, butter and vanilla; blend well. Stir in powdered sugar until smooth.
5. Spread frosting over each COOLED cookie, covering marshmallow.
This tastes like a Mississippi Mud Bar cookie) It's very easy and quick. I also add a tsp of vanilla to the pkg mix. For my personal taste...I think the frosting is a little too bitter for the cookie. I made my own chocolate frosting and I liked it much better. I'm a huge fan for shaved chocolate candy bar. It adds a nice touch to the tops of the cookies.
TPQ Comment: I printed off this recipe a year ago and still haven't tried it. I love the photo of it. You can practically taste the cookies just looking at it right? Thanks Kathy for reminding me about this one.
