Devil’s Food Surprise Cookies

These little lovelies remind me of those fabulous Devil’s Food cookies that my mama used to buy and….

hide from us. What?!  Too good to share with the kids? Aparently so.

Well fine then.

I’ll make my own.

Ooooh baby.

Do brace yourself.

Devil’s Food Surprise Cookies

Ingredients:

3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
24 large marshmallows, cut in half horizontally or 4 small marshmallows
Chocolate Frosting for Surprise Cookies

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg, milk, and vanilla, and beat until well combined. Add reserved flour mixture; mix on low speed until combined.
3. Using a tablespoon or 1 3/4-inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto ungreased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake until cookies begin to spread and become firm, 10 to 12 minutes.
4. Remove baking sheets from oven, and place a marshmallow, cut-side down, in the center of each cookie, pressing down slightly. Return to oven, and continue baking until marshmallows begins to melt, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.

  1. Apparently I led a deprived childhood – I’ve never even heard of these before. I think they need to be sampled though and soon!

  2. You probably have. They were Nabisco Devil’s Food Cookies and then Snack Wells came out with them too. But they were just so expensive. Once in a great while you can find an off brand at Wall Mart or the Bread store. But seriously, I’m not even looking after these.

    Dude.

    How’s your blog coming?
    I’m getting skinnier by the second.
    :]

  3. OK, so Jillian brought some of these to work and I’ve had the darnest time convincing myself that a orange will satisfy me while I see those WOnDerFul cookies! So far, it’s
    oranges 1
    Cookies -0

    but the competition is getting harder to beat:-)

  4. i feel that i may have to stop reading your blog until i’m done losing all this baby weight…

    those look amaaaaaaaazing.

  5. Sad thing is I brought them to share with people, and I think I’ve eaten more of them than what I’ve shared!

    I need to go back to kindergarten so I can learn what it means to share!
