Chocolate Sundae Cookies

I love sundaes. I mean Sundays. Actually, I like em both. I don't do any studying on Sundays so it is my only day of the week when I am not running around with flashcards if I'm not sitting down doing homework for a good part of the day. I get to go to church and feel the spirit and partake of the sacred sacrament. I get to see the cute and funny kids in my primary class. On the weekends my children are home, we get to spend time together. So last Sunday, the kids and I decided to do one of the things we like doing, but rarely get time to do anymore--bake cookies! But not just any cookies. We went through a bunch of recipes and decided on trying this one for the first time. I found it at Carla's Chocolate Moosey. I like Sundays and sundaes and now sundae cookies. Oh, yummmmm!

We did find one thing wrong with this recipe though. It only makes 12 cookies. Luckily, that is easily fixed and we just doubled it and really did get 24. There's a long list of ingredients, but you probably have everything at home already. (And it's not a typo- there are no eggs.)

Chocolate Sundae Cookies
3/4 c. flour
1/4 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1/3 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. butter
1 T. water
1 1/2 t. canola oil
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. vanilla
3 T. cocoa powder
1 T. oil
1 T. milk
2 T. cherry juice
2 T. maraschino cherries, chopped
6 large marshmallows, cut in half
3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
2 T. butter
2 t. corn syrup
1/8 t. vanilla
Sprinkles
12 whole maraschino cherries

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper.

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In another bowl, cream sugar, butter, water, 1 1/2 tsp oil, baking powder, and vanilla until well blended. Add cocoa and 1 Tbsp oil; mix well. Add milk and cherry juice. Add dry ingredients. Stir in cherries.

Drop by teaspoon onto cookie sheet. Bake 12 minutes. As soon as they come out, press a marshmallow half on top of each cookie. Let cool until sturdy enough to transfer to cooling rack.

In microwave, melt butter, Stir in chocolate and corn syrup. Microwave in 10 second intervals until melted and combined. Stir in vanilla. Spoon over each marshmallow, covering it completely. Top with sprinkles and a cherry.

Makes 12 cookies.
