I don’t make cookies often enough (probably because I’m obsessed with making cupcakes), but I decided to make some for when my friend comes over for dinner tonight. Um, have you ever stopped to think about how many different types of cookies there are? After much searching, I found a recipe that involved chocolate and marshmallows. Yes, please.
Surprise cookies come from a Martha Stewart Kids recipe. But what differentiates a kid’s cookie from an adult’s cookie, I ask you? A simple marshmallow? Well, if that’s the case, I think I’d prefer to be a kid forever, thank you very much.
The batter for the cookies is simple to make with flour, cocoa powder, eggs, milk, vanilla, butter, sugar, and baking soda. The cookies are baked for 10 minutes, before you take them out of the oven and push half a marshmallow into the center of each. Then back in the oven for another 2 minutes.
Whisk up a quick frosting consisting of cocoa powder, confectioner sugar, vanilla, and milk and put a teaspoon of frosting in the center of the cookie, covering the marshmallow (hence the surprise part of the cookie).
