  1. In a medium saucepan melt the butter and chopped chocolate on medium-low heat stirring frequently. Once melted remove from burner and allow to cool for 15 minutes.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder. Set aside.

  3. In a mixer, mix together the eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Add the cooled melted chocolate. And lastly, add the dry flour ingredients in 2 batches into the dough. The dough will be almost like a thick cake batter consistency.

  4. Allow to chill in the fridge for 1 hour so that the dough is easily shaped.

  5. Once the dough is chilled, line baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place 2-inches apart on the parchment paper. Flatten the tops slightly.

  6. Bake at 325 degrees F for about 12 minutes or until the cookie edges start to crack.

  7. While they are baking, cut marshmallows in half and stick 1 square of chocolate onto each of the cut sides.

  8. Once the cookies are done, remove them from the oven and stick a marshmallow chocolate side down into each cookie. Put back into the oven for about 4 minutes until the marshmallows are soft.

  9. Remove from the oven and transfer to cooling racks to cool. Grate additional chocolate over the top for additional garnish.

  10. Serve and enjoy.
