s'more cookie

This is one of those recipes that kinda came together by mixing bits and pieces of a few other recipes.  I had seen some cookies on pinterest with chocolate and marshmallow melted on top, but the ingredient list was far too long for my attention span.  When I want cookies, I want them now!  This is definately an instant gratification cookie with barely 6 ingredients, all of which I generally have on hand.  Plus they are gooey and sweet and can kick that chocolate craving right in the money maker.  I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Double chocolate deliciousness cookies with Marshmallow toppers
also, simply known as S'more Cookies!

crisco, for greasing pans
1 box chocolate cake mix
1/3 cup water
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets with crisco or other solid vegetable shortening.

Mix everything except the chocolate chips and marshmallows with electric mixer until combined, stopping to scrape sides as needed. Cookie dough will be THICK! You aren't missing anything though :) Fold in the chocolate chips.

Drop dough by heaping teaspoons about 2 in apart on prepared cookie sheets and bake until cookies have just set. They will still be a little soft in the center. About 8-10 min. While the cookies bake, using kitchen scissors, cut marshmallows in half. Remove the cookies from oven, and place one 1/2 marshmallow on top of each cookie, cut side down. The cookies will still be soft, so you you can kind of squish it down into the gooey goodness. Put cookies back in oven for 2 min, until marshmallows puff, OR place under the broiler until toasted. Allow cookies to cool on pan for 2 min before moving with a metal spatula to a wire cooling rack. Allow pans to cool completely (and oven to return to temp if you toasted marshmallows) before repeating with remaining dough.

Store completely cooled cookies in airtight container or zip lock bags in a single layer to prevent sticking together.
