Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 12 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Topping

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/3 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup crushed candy canes

Instructions

  • Whisk together flour, corn starch, powdered sugar, and cocoa powder. Add butter, vanilla, and milk and mix to combine. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350. Roll dough into 1½ inch balls and place 2-3 inches apart on a greased baking sheet. Gently smash the dough balls with the palm of your hand to flatten slightly (they should be about ¾ inch tall now, they will not spread much while baking.)
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on baking sheet.
  • Once the cookies have cooled, prepare the topping. Microwave chocolate chips and milk in a microwave-safe bowl on half power for 2 minutes. Stir, then return to microwave on half power for 20 seconds at a time, stirring after each, until smooth. Spread over cookies.
  • Top with mini marshmallows and crushed candy canes. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
