Surprise Cookies

 This is another recipe from one of my favorite cookie books, Martha Stewart Cookies. I made it a few times in a short period of time this summer because they were a big hit!

The main idea is to make a chocolate cookie which is soft and cakey but not too crumbly. Then close toward the end of baking you put a half of a large marshmallow (or I also did this with several mini marshmallows) and pop the cookies back in the oven for a few minutes to melt the marshmallows and finish baking the cookies.

Last but not least, after the cookies have cooled a little, you make a quick chocolate buttercream frosting that is rich and delicious - and spread that on top of the marshmallow area so that you can't see it. I love marshmallows so that's just the kind of surprise I like in a cookie. This is an another great recipe from this book so if you love chocolate and marshmallow, definitely give it a try!
