Marshmallow and Chocolate Cookies

I found some stale marshmallows in the back of the cupboard this afternoon (you know, those mini ones you can put on hot chocolate) and thought I'd try to use them up. I created these cookies as an experiment, and they ended up tasting better than I could have ever hoped!

6oz plain flour
4oz soft marge (plus some extra)
2oz sugar
About 3oz mini marshmallows
2oz dark chocolate, cut into chunks

Makes 16

1) Pre-heat the oven to 160 deg C
2) Mix the flour, marge and sugar together
3) Tip in the marshmallows and chocolate and stir
4) Add some extra marge if it's not sticking together well - it should look a bit like shortbread
5) Shape the mixture into balls and cook on baking trays for 15-20 mins (longer makes some of the marshmallows go toffee-like which is delicious)
