Dark Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies

We plan to visit Jeff tomorrow, so that gave me an excuse to bake some cookies. Tom and I don't need to have a batch of cookies tempting us, now we will only have half a batch to mess with our calorie counts.
I made Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies, I got the recipe from "Farm Journal's Choice Chocolate Recipes."  My sister-in-law, Kathryn, gave me the cookbook about 30 years ago because she knew I was a chocoholic.  I couldn't find the recipe online but this one is almost the same (my recipe calls for another tablespoon of cocoa in the frosting).  I changed the recipe a little when I made the cookies today, I used mini chocolate chips instead of chopped walnuts and used "Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa" instead of regular cocoa. (Remember the chocoholic thing).

Bunny Coasters

I made a few bunny coasters for Easter presents.

I got the idea for the coaster from some I saw on Etsy.  I think the ears on my bunnies are a little larger.  The batting is Insul Bright so they will protect a surface from a hot beverage.

Finally...a sign that spring is on it's way!
