Bake for 11-12 minutes. Remove from oven and place a marshmallow piece into the middle of each cookie by gently pressing down. Return cookies to the oven and bake for an additional 2 minutes. You want the marshmallows to be soft and puffy but not brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to completely cool.

Mixing the Frosting

In a medium mixing bowl, add the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla, melted butter and hot water.
