Marshmallow Choco Chip Cookies

Can I please have another one? Nope, they are all gone. Cody and I had to fight over these babies (baby's? Sp?!). I will say, however, that fresh out of the oven there wasn't a was the next day that the selfishness began. These cookies were perfect on day 2. PERFECT. I could have chowed 10. Good thing we didn't know how good they would be the second day and gave 1/2 of them away..or is it?! Hopefully they appreciated them as much as we did! I can't wait to make these again, even though it causes "kitchen stress" in our marriage! Tip: Make sure to either bake these on a silpat or parchment paper, the marshmallows are sticky!

2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tbs. vanilla extract
2 cups oats
1 1/4 cups crispy rice cereal
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup miniature marshmallows (not large!)

1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup miniature marshmallows
10 tsp. half and half
pinch of cayenne pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper (or use a silpat, it makes life so much easier!). Combine the flour, baking powder and soda in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the butter and sugars until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined. Add to the flour mixture and beat on low speed until combined. 
Stir in the oats, cereal, and chocolate chips into the dough. Drop heaping tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, about 3 inches apart. Place 1-2 mini marshmallows on top of dough mound. Bake the cookies in batches until golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to racks to cool. (A silicon spatula works best to get the cookies off the cookie sheet).
Make the topping by combining the ingredients in a saucepan over medium high heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Drizzle the mixture over the cookies and let set about 4 hours. (Really do this, they are better after setting!)

These cookies sound amazing--probably shouldn't make them, but.....probably will! What's for Sunday dinner?
