When I was growing up my Mom made this cookie that was a roll of chocolate chip cookie dough, covered with marshmallows and smothered with a chocolate frosting mix.  The chocolate frosting was a box mix that made an icing similar to the one found on a Texas Sheet Cake (you know the one, really chocolate and licking the bowl is required) but she always used this mix.  By the time I was in high school the cookies were off the cookie tray because the frosting mix couldn’t be found.  I have been craving these cookies every Christmas since.  So this year I made them. 

I used the Toll House cookie recipe to make the base.  While the base was cooking I mixed up a batch of chocolate frosting.  When the cookies came out of the oven I covered them with a bag of mini marshmallows and poured on the chocolate frosting. 

The result was a cookie just like I remembered: chocolate chips, marshmallows and luscious chocolate frosting, delicious!!!!

Cookie tray is finally starting to fill up!!!
