The old English nursery rhyme starts with, “One for sorrow, two for joy” in reference to seeing crows. Now it might be because I’ve binge-watched The Crown this weekend (finally, I know), but I find something oddly magical about the poem. First comes sorrow, but then there is joy; the joy multiples from the sorrow.
I made these cookies (dark chocolate with white poking through) today for someone who is dealing with a lot of sorrow. I told the person to always eat two at the same time. Two for joy.
Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies
- 1 cup butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda

Assembling the Cookies
- Preheat oven to 375*. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- In a mixer, cream together butter and sugars until fluffy. Mix in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla.
- Gradually add in flour, cocoa powder and baking soda until completely incorporated. The dough will be quite stiff.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Take a spoonful of dough and flatten. Press 4-5 frozen marshmallows into centre and fully enclose dough around the marshmallows creating a dough ball.
