This is from the Toledo Blade 12/30/08 story about marshmallow. They credit the King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion. This uses #346464 Marshmallow Fluff or you can use store purchased marshmallow creme. I couldn't get 'zaar to reference my other recipe. My apologies to Chef # 1099471 for not posting this recipe sooner. Please note that the cocoa is 1/4 c + 2T, but I couldn't get it to make sense on one Recipezaar line!
