HOT COCOA COOKIES √

Makes 2 to 3 dozen.

Note: This dough must be prepared in advance. From Macy Hennen of Pierz, Minn.

• 1 1/2 c. flour

• 1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder

• 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

• 1/4 tsp. salt

• 16 oz. semisweet chocolate, divided

• 1/2 c. (1 stick) unsalted butter

• 1 1/4 c. light brown sugar

• 3 eggs

• 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

• 30 regular marshmallows or 90 mini-marshmallows

Directions

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt, and reserve.

Chop 12 ounces of semisweet chocolate into 1/2-inch pieces. In a double boiler over gently simmering water, melt butter and chopped chocolate, whisking frequently, until smooth. Remove from heat and cool 15 minutes.

In a bowl of an electric mixer on medium speed, beat brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add melted chocolate mixture and mix until just blended. Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture in 2 batches, mixing until just combined. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 325 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Break remaining 4 ounces of chocolate into small pieces, and cut marshmallows (if necessary) into a size suitable for the top of the cookie.
