  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

FOR THE GLAZE:
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chocolate extract (or vanilla if you can't find chocolate)
INSTRUCTIONS
FOR THE COOKIES:
  • In a small sauce pan, melt the butter and then whisk in the semi-sweet chocolate chips. Whisk together until the butter and semi-sweet chocolate chips melt into a smooth chocolate sauce.
  • Set aside and let cool.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the sugar, eggs and extract together. Mix until well combined.
  • Once the chocolate and butter mixture is cooled mix it into the sugar, eggs and extract.
  • Slowly whisk the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture.
  • Mix until everything is combined. Cover in plastic wrap and place into the fridge for 1 hour.
  • Remove dough from the fridge after one hour and preheat oven to 325F.
  • Grease 3 cookie sheets (or use the same one over and over). - Line the baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up -
  • Spoon out about a tablespoon of chilled dough and roll it into a ball. Lay it onto a prepared baking sheet.
  • Place about 12-15 cookies onto each baking sheet. Press each cookie down a little bit.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven. Top each cookie with three mini marshmallows. Place back into the oven for 2 - 3 minutes.
  • Remove cookies from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Repeat until all cookies are done.
  • Let cookies cool and make the chocolate glaze.
FOR THE GLAZE:
  • In a medium bowl, combine the melted butter, cocoa powder, hot water and chocolate extract (or vanilla extract).
  • Slowly whisk in the powdered sugar until everything is combined.
  • Lay a piece of parchment paper under the cooling rack that is holding the cooled cookies. (This will make for easy clean up!)
  • Drizzle each cookie with the chocolate glaze, covering the marshmallows. While the chocolate glaze is wet, sprinkle each cookie with the sprinkles.
  • Let Cookies and Chocolate glaze set for about 30 minute before serving.
  • Keep cookies in an air tight container.

baking has to be exact. I would use the recommended flour. You can try it with other flour but the consistency is different and may not produce good results
