♥ Chocolate Marshmallow Meltaways ♥

Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup 2% milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa

18 large marshmallows, halved

FROSTING:
3 tablespoons butter, softened
3 cups confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons baking cocoa
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 to 6 tablespoons 2% milk

Directions:
In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, milk and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.

Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes. Press a marshmallow half, cut side down, onto each cookie; bake 2 minutes longer. Remove to wire racks to cool.

In a small bowl, beat the butter, confectioners' sugar, cocoa and salt until smooth. Add enough milk to achieve a spreading consistency. Frost cookies.

Yield: 3 dozen.
