Peppermint Marshmallow Cookies

I love these cookies because I am a peppermint freak. It tastes so great with the cream chocolate icing also. The great thing about these cookies is that it is fancy looking and easy to make.-Christine
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp peppermint extract
1/2 cup milk
40 mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350. Stir flour, soda, salt, and cocoa. Set aside. In separate bowl, cream butter, peppermint extract, sugar and egg. Alternately blend in the dry ingredients and milk. Drop batter from a tablespoon onto a greased baking sheet. Bake 8 minutes. Remove from oven, and set 3 marshmallows on each cookie and return to oven for one more minute. Then, drizzle cookies with peppermint icing.

Peppermint icing:
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbl. unsweetened cocoa
3 Tbl. milk
2 Tbl. butter
1 1/2 tsp peppermint extract

Combine powdered sugar, cocoa and salt. Heat together milk and butter and beat enough of it into powdered sugar mixture.

  1. I'm not a big fan of peppermint, so I made these with mint extract and oh my gosh they are delicious!!! My husband and kids (okay... and I) are eating them up! :)
