These are the cookies we make every year, along with Sugar Jumbles. But we call them Chocolate Surprise Cookies. Hope you enjoy them!

1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup milk
24 large marshmallows, cut in half
Sift together flour, soda, salt and cocoa, set aside.
Cream shortening, sugar, egg and vanilla until fluffy. Add dry ingredients, alternately with milk.
Add nuts. Drop by teaspoonful onto greased cookie sheet. Bake in pre-heated 375 degrees for 8 minutes. Remove and top each cookie with a marshmallow half, cut side down. Return to oven and bake 4 minutes longer. When cool glaze with cocoa glaze.
