Chocolate Cloud Cookies

In our neck of the woods, these are also known as "Cow Patties," but don't let that turn you away...

These are a fudgy, chewy cookie, kind of like the marshmallow brownie king of the cookie world. All hail the king! (And all hail Becky for bringing me the cookie pictured above.)

3 cups flour
2/3 cup baking cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
8 oz. frozen mini marshmallows

Combine flour, cocoa, soda, adn set aside. Cream butter and sugar; add eggs and vanilla, beating until combined. Add the flour mixture, mixing just until combined, and stir in the semisweet chocolate chips. Batter should be stiff. Scoop by tablespoons, flatten in palm, and place 4-5 marshmallows in the center. Wrap the dough around the marshmallows and bake cookies on ungreased cookie sheet for @ 9 minutes at 400 degrees. Just as with brownies, take care not to overbake.
