  1. 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  2. 1 cup sugar, divided
  3. 1 large egg
  4. 1 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
  5. 1⁄2 cup powdered milk
  6. 1⁄4 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  7. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  8. 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
  9. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  10. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  11. 12 large marshmallows, cut in half
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter and 2⁄3 cup sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy, approximately 4 minutes. Add egg, beating until incorporated.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, powdered milk, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating until well combined. Beat in vanilla.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together remaining 1⁄3 cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll dough into 1-inch balls; roll balls in sugar mixture. Place on prepared pans, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake until cookies are set, approximately 8 minutes. Working quickly, press 1 marshmallow half, cut side down, in center of each cookie.
  5. Set oven to broil. Watching carefully, broil 5 inches from heat until marshmallows are lightly toasted, approximately 3 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool. Store in an airtight container up to 5 days.
