Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies

Today I made chocolate marshmallow cookies. I am pretty proud that they turned out good. I also made Chili ConQueso dip yesterday. It turned out super thick so we had chili con queso nachos instead of dip lol. This cooking from scratch thing is pretty fun!
1/2 cup butter,softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
16-18 large marshmallows
6 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1/4 cup milk
1-3/4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
16-18 pecan halves

1 In large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; beat into creamed mixture.

2 Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Meanwhile, cut marshmallows in half. Press a marshmallow half cut side down onto each cookie. Bake 2 minutes longer. Remove to wire racks to cool.

3 For icing, combine the butter, cocoa and milkin a saucepan. Bring to boil; boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Cool slightly; transfer to a small mixing bowl. Add powdered sugar and vanilla; beat well. Drizzle over the cooled cookies. Top each with a pecan half.

Yield: about 3 dozen
