Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Marshmallow Filling

  • 2 cups marshmallow cream
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powder sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Pre-heat oven to 350°F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • Melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler. For a double boiler, place some water in a large saucepan and bring to a light simmer. Place a heat-safe bowl on top of the pan and stir chocolate chips until melted. Let cool.
  • Place the softened butter and sugars in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on high speed until fluffy and lighter in color. About 2-3 minutes. Mix in the melted chocolate.
  • After scraping down the sides, add the egg and the vanilla extract. Mix until combined. 
  • After turning the mixer to low speed, add the flour-cocoa mixture. Mix on low speed until just combined. Do not over mix!
  • Turn off the mixer. Gently fold in the chocolate chips with a wooden spoon or spatula until combined. 
  • Using a 2″ cookie scoop, drop scoops about 2 inches apart. Bake for 11 minutes. Cool on the tray for about 7 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. Completely cool before assembling the sandwich cookies. 

Marshmallow Cream Cheese Filling

Add all the softened filling ingredients to a large mixing bowl, and beat until smooth and fluffy. About 2-3 minutes.
