Chocolate Marshmallow Banana Surprise Cookies

I made some fun cookies for the boys and girls club workers and volunteers.  My chocolate was a little too thick and I didn't have time to make it rich and smooth, so mine aren't as pretty as Anna's on Cookie Madness. But I had so many of the helpers come up to me wanting me to make them again so that told me they must have been a hit!


2 cups all purpose flour (9 oz)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 stick (4 oz) butter, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 ripe bananas
1 large egg, room temperature
10 marshmallows, cut in half or use 20 marshmallows and just trim them a little**

Frosting
3 cups confectioners’ sugar
6 tablespoons salted butter
1/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons unsweetened natural cocoa powder
1/4 cup whole milk or use lowfat milk with a little cream mixed in
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Have ready two cookie sheets lined with parchment.
Stir together flour and baking soda and set aside.
Using high speed of an electric mixer, cream the butter, vanilla and sugar for about 3 minutes. Add the banana and beat it with the butter/sugar mixture until it’s fully mashed. Beat in the egg. Using lowest speed of mixer or by hand, stir in the flour mixture. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto cookie sheets and bake at 350° F for about 11 minutes or until cookies just start to appear set. Remove pan from oven and press a marshmallow half into center of each cookie. Return to oven and bake for 2 to 2 ½ minutes or until marshmallow begins to melt (puffs). Remove from oven and let cool completely. Prepare frosting.
Prepare frosting. Put the confectioners’ sugar in a mixing bowl. In a small saucepan or in a large microwave-safe measuring cup, melt the butter and cocoa. Pour the melted butter/cocoa mixture into the sugar and stir well (I did it while it was hot), then stir in the milk and vanilla, stirring until smooth. Spread about 1 tablespoon of frosting over each marshmallow, starting in the center and continuing outward until marshmallow is covered.
Makes 20 cookies

  3. Looks like you are all fixed up! Yea!

    I am avoiding food posts right now as I am VERY focused on losing weight and I just can't be tempted. I'm sure once I get used to this food restriction then I won't be tempted! LOL!
