Chocolate Marshmallow Brownie Cookies

There is a little restaurant close to our house called Cutler’s that makes the most amazing sandwiches and cookies! Their cookies are seriously to die for!
Well, I was craving some of their cookies, but my kids were taking a nap and I couldn’t leave the house, so I came up with my own recipe . . .
1 milk chocolate cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
Mix all ingredients together. Roll into 1-1.5″ balls. Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for  5-6 minutes.
Pull the cookie sheet out of the oven and place 6-7 mini marshmallows on each cookie. Put the cookie sheet back into the oven for 2-2.5 minutes (no longer!).
 The marshmallows will kind of puff up like this.
Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes, then remove to wire rack to cool.
Once they are cooled completely, put frosting on top.
1 stick (1/2 cup) margarine, softened
1/4 cup milk
1-2 tsp vanilla (depending on your taste)
3 teaspoons cocoa
2-3 cups of powdered sugar
Combine all ingredients with hand mixer. Frost tops of cooled cookies.
Enjoy! :)

    I love trying new recipes! I too thought these looked wonderful and thought they would be great to make for my work cookie exchange. They sounded really easy to make and since I was going to have to make almost a 100 cookies, I thought these would be perfect.
    However, after the first batch I quickly changed my mind. One of most frustrating thing was “rolling” them into balls. The cake mix/eggs/veg oil created a very sticky taffy like mixture. Trying to “roll” them into balls was absolutely impossible! You can’t even get the batter off your fingers. Cooking the cookies for only 5-6 minutes was no way close to long enough time before putting the marshmallows on, they were still very doughy. The marshmallow piece wasn’t that big of a deal, but I found myself having to smash the cookies down inorder to get them to stay on top. Also, the frosting was terrible. I tried making the frosting a few different ways by decreasing/increasing vanilla and even powder sugar. I would have been better off using store bought frosting.
    Of all the recipes I’ve ever tried, I have never before written a comment, but I was so disappointed and frustrated with my experience that I felt I needed to share. If you’re going to make these yourself, be prepared to spend more total time to create them and if you have a favorite frosting recipe I would recommend using it instead.

    These are my familes favorite cookies! We have a similar cookie shop called The Cookie Connection, they make a similar version of these and they are delicious! I found your recipe and was thrilled to be able to make this yummy cookie at home. I followed your recipe exactly and they turned out perfect! I never had any problems rolling the dough into balls, the marshmallows can be tricky but that is not a big deal. And this icing is one I have used for years as a basic frosting. This is such a simple recipe, I really don’t see how anyone can have problems with it.
