Chocolate Marshmallow Meltaways

I hope you are enjoying #ChristmasCookies Week, I know I am! I've already changed my holiday baking list three times, and I'm sure I'll be adding to it again.  These Chocolate Marshmallow Meltaways from Taste of Home have definitely been added to the list!  The only changes I made to the recipe was to use whole milk instead of 2%, it's what I have on hand, and garnished them with some holiday sprinkles.  The base cookie isn't overly sweet, so it makes it perfect when you add the marshmallow and the frosting to it.  Thank you so much to Joanna S. for sharing her recipe, these were like hot cocoa that you could eat!

Thank you again to Ellen from Family Around the Table and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures for all the hard work you've put into this!  And don't forget, tomorrow's the last day to enter for your chance to win that amazing prize pack from Nielsen Massey!

Chocolate Marshmallow Meltaways

1/2 cup butter flavored shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup 2 % milk, I used whole
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
18 large marshmallows, halved 
 Frosting
3 tablespoons butter, softened
3 cups confectioner's sugar
3 tablespoons baking cocoa
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons 2 % milk, I used whole
Sprinkles (optional)

In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, milk and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes. Press a marshmallow half, cut side down, onto each cookie; bake 2 minutes longer. Remove to wire racks to cool. In a small bowl, beat the butter, confectioners' sugar, cocoa and salt until smooth. Add enough milk to achieve a spreading consistency. Frost cookies. Garnish with sprinkles, if desired. Yield: 3 dozen.
