Double Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Cookies | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

Peanut butter and jelly. Peaches and cream. Cinnamon and raisins. Peppermint and chocolate!  

The duo from heaven. Or at least the chocolate gods. I could eat these cookies all day. I think my 4 year stole at least 5 of these when I baked them this Sunday. Every time I turned around a cookie was missing from the cooling rack.

These super chocolaty cookies are filled with fudgy goodness and a near brownie texture, with a lightly crisp exterior and a super moist and sticky interior. And the sweet sticky peppermint marshmallows add all the gooey appeal a 4 year old (and mommy) craves!
