Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

  • 1 ½ cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 cup quick-cooking rolled oats

  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)

  • 2 cup homemade or canned white frosting

  • Red gel or paste food coloring

  • 2 cup tiny marshmallows

  • 2 tablespoon slivered almonds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350*F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Beat in cocoa powder and as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour, oats, and pecans (if using).

  2. Drop dough by rounded measuring tablespoons about 3 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes or until edges are firm. Let stand on cookie sheets for 2 minutes. Transfer to wire racks and let cool.

  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, tint frosting red.

  4. For each sandwich, cut a cookie in half and frost bottoms with red frosting. Arrange 6 marshmallows along the curved edge of a cookie half. Top with other half. Place a slivered almond on either side of the center two marshmallows to resemble fangs.
