Chocolate Cake Cookies with Marshmallows

Boxed cake mix cookies like this one are the perfect fix for a quick dessert anytime.  These are easily interchangeable to make all kinds of variations.  The original recipe drizzled chocolate over the marshmallow with peppermint candy cane sprinkles for a Christmas version.  I opted for a peanut butter chocolate drizzle.  If I had some peanuts I might have crushed them and added it, but you get the idea.  Let the imagination go on this one.

Chocolate Cake Cookies with Marshmallows
Recipe from Make It & Love It

1 chocolate cake mix (any type)
2 eggs
1/2 c. shortening or butter
large marshmallows
toppings/drizzling chocolate of choice

Beat cake mix, eggs and shortening in a large bowl until well blended.
Scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet (makes 24 cookies).

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
While baking, cut marshmallows in half with scissors.
When cookies are done, place a marshmallow half on each piece.
Place back into the oven for 2 minutes to toast and help secure the marshmallow to the cookie.

Cool completely, and top with melted chocolate or other toppings of choice.
Makes 24 cookies.
