2 Eggs, large
Baking & Spices
2 1/4 cups All-purpose flour
1 tsp Baking soda
1 cup Brown sugar, light
6 tbsp Cocoa, unsweetened
1/2 cup Cocoa powder, unsweetened
1 cup Granulated sugar
3 1/2 cups Powdered sugar
1 pinch Salt
3 tsp Vanilla
Nuts & Seeds
1 1/2 cup Butter
1/3 cup Milk
3 cups Marshmallows, miniature
3 cups Pecans

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Beat together butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla, and eggs.
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture into the butter mixture and blend until combined.
Drop the dough by tablespoonful onto the prepared baking sheets, 12 cookies per sheet, and bake 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on a baking rack.
Once cool prepare frosting.
In a medium mixing bowl, add powder sugar and vanilla, set aside. Then in a small saucepan combine first 3 ingredients and heat over medium. Stir constantly, about 3-4 minutes or until butter melts. Remove from heat, and pour into powdered sugar and vanilla, stir (using a whisk is best) until smooth.
Using a spoon, drizzle large amounts of frosting on each cookie, about 1- 1 tablespoon. Dress all the cookies and if there is extra frosting, add more too each one. Let frosting cool and harden before serving. Unless you need to sample one, then dig in just be sure not to burn the roof of your mouth.
