This recipe came from my MIL been making them for years.
Two ways to make them with Marshmallows on top (for the kids) and frosting drizzled over. Or no marshmallows (for adults) and just choc. frosting with coconut sprinkled on top. Either way they are like little cakes.

How to Make Chocolate Mountain Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1SIFT TOGETHER:
    1 3/4 sifted flour
    1 C sugar
    1/2 C Cocoa
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    ADD:
    1/2 C soft shortening
    1/2 C evaporated milk
    2 Tablespoons water
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Beat three minutes w/ electric mixer at low speed
    or by hand.
    Stir in 1/2 cup nuts (if desired)
    (I Never put them in)
    Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls about 2" apart onto greased cookie sheet.
  • 2Bake near center of oven 10 min. Cookies will be slightly soft in center. Take from oven and quickly place a marshmallow half, cut-side-down, on top of each hot cookie. Let stand until cool.
    Spoon 1- 2 teaspoons of choc. frosting over each cookie.
  • 3FROSTING:
    Stir over low heat:
    1 Cup of semi-sweet chocolate pieces until chocolate melts.
    Add 1/2 cup evaporated milk.
    Take off heat and stir in until smooth 2 1/2 cups sifted confectioners sugar.

    I omit marshmallows and put frosting on top then sprinkle coconut on top.
    Used to use the marshmallow when my kids were small.
    Either way they are good.
