Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies

Deborah Iverson


This is one of my mothers recipes. I know it called for melted chocolate squares but I don't remember her ever using them on anything because she thought they were too expensive. She came up with the butter and baking cocoa. I've since tried with the squares and didn't like them as well.
We've had these in the family for years and know I share them with the neighborhood and family.

How to Make Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies


  1. I take 2 cubes of butter. Cut off 1/3 cup of each and place in large mixing bowl.
  2. Melt remainder of two cubes of butter. Add baking cocoa to melted butter. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Cream together 2/3 cup butter, sugars and egg.
  4. Add chocolate mixture and mix well. Stir in sour cream and vanilla.
  5. In separate bowl mix dry ingredients together and then mix in with creamed mixture.
