Marshmallow Filled Chocolate Cookies.




These cookies are reminiscent of Betty’s Whoopie Pies however they use milk instead of sour cream and have a marshmallow filling.
They freeze really well and are delicious when eaten right from the freezer!
Treats for those little monkeys in your life.
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup softened butter or margarine
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 3 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 375 º
  2. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or grease.
  3. In mixer bowl, beat together, margarine, sugar vanilla and eggs. Beat until light.
  4. Add dry ingredients and mix well. This is a soft dough, more like a thick cake batter.
  5. Using a scoop or teaspoon, drop dough about 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets.
  6. Bake at 375º for 7 - 9 minutes, baking until cookies are soft but spring back when touched.
  7. Wait a minute or two before removing from cookie sheets to a rack. Cool completely.
  8. Fill with marshmallow filling and store in tightly covered containers in your freezer.


Marshmallow Filling
  • 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 6 Tablespoons milk, divided
  • 3 cups icing sugar
  • 1/3 cup softened butter or margarine
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  1. Place mini marshmallows and 3 tablespoons of milk in a microwave bowl or saucepan.
  2. Gently melt, over medium heat - stirring frequently.
  3. Just before marshmallows have melted completely, remove from heat and stir until all the lumps are gone. Set aside.
  4. In mixing bowl, beat together margarine, shortening and vanilla.
  5. Add icing sugar and 3 tablespoons milk, beating well.
  6. Add marshmallow mixture and continue to beat. You may need a bit more icing sugar or milk to make it of spreading consistency. It should be thick but still spreadable.
  7. Fill cookies.
  8. Offer them to your little monkeys - and their parents!

  3. Whoopie Pies are something I made when growing up. I think I tried it maybe once since with my children, but not more. They would be a good thing to try again, when little ones come over.
