Taste must be good ...

Sometime I wonder, if I too 'hard' to my 3 years old daughter ? What I mean about 'hard' is : I don't want she make a mess a round, she need to learn to take responsibility for her own toys . After playing with her toys, she need to put everything back into her toy box. Well, sometime it works.. sometime not.. LOL. ^_^

Anyway, when she doing nice things, I like to give her compliment, such a baking cookies that she loves or another way, I sew a nice bag for her . To see smile on her face make me happy and forget about my backpain after pick-up all the toys

so, why don't you bake this for yourself too ? I promise you will love and wont stop until finish :D

Choco-Marshmallow Cookies

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
12 large marshmallows, cut in half horizontally

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg, milk, and vanilla, and beat until well combined. Add reserved flour mixture; mix on low speed until combined.

Using a tablespoon or 1 3/4-inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto ungreased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake until cookies begin to spread and become firm, 10 to 12 minutes.
Remove baking sheets from oven, and place a marshmallow, cut-side down, in the center of each cookie, pressing down slightly. Return to oven, and continue baking until marshmallows begins to melt, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.

Spread about 1 tablespoon of chocolate ganache over each marshmallow, starting in the center and continuing outward until marshmallow is covered.

Makes : 2 dozen cookies

Chocolate Ganache

1/2 cup heavy cream

5 1/3 oz dark chocolate

grate the chocolate and place it in a bowl. Heat the cream and bring ti a simmer. Stop and pour over the chocolate, let sit for 1 minute the mix together to get a smooth paste. Let cool before using.

Upss.. by the way, how do you like my bag ? lets going green, no more plastic bag please... :)

Red velvet is one of my and my daughters' favorite cupcakes. We just made them two weeks ago using, of course, store bought packages. I would love to try making them fresh. Thanks for the recipe.
