Mississippi Mud Cookies

12/4/12 was National Cookie Day, I made these cookies to commemorate.

My whole house smelled chocolatey and delicious!

I did find that you had to work quickly with this dough, if it got too warm, or got too cold, it separated. I would suggest having more than one baking pan ready to go.

1 Cup semisweet chocolate morsels
½ Cup butter, softened
1 Cup sugar
2 Large eggs
1 Tsp vanilla
1 ½ Cups all-purpose flour
1 Tsp baking powder
½ Tsp salt
1 Cup chopped pecans
½ Cup milk chocolate morsels
3 Mini marshmallows for every cookie

1. Microwave semi sweet chips in a small microwave safe glass bowl until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds
2. Beat butter and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy.
3. Add eggs one at a time, beating until blended
4. Beat in vanilla and melted chocolate
5. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add to chocolate mixture.
6. Stir in pecans and milk chocolate morsels
7. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto parchment paper lined baking sheets
8. Press 3 marshmallows onto each cookie top
9. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes
10. Remove to wire rack to cool
