I love recipe contests. And if you read this blog often enough you should know that about me by now. I created these amazing cookies for VegNews Magazine's Holiday Cookie Contest. The prize is a Vitamix which I am sad to say I don't yet own. Oh, the things I would do with that Vitamix....
Anyway, I tried these cookies out on some unassuming peeps at a holiday party and they went over well so fingers crossed!
They taste like brownies but are crunchy and gooey at the same time. Really there's no need to bake these because you may catch yourself eating the batter, it's so good!

3. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt together the butter, cocoa powder and sugar, stirring until smooth.
4. Remove from heat and stir in egg replacer, vanilla, flour and baking powder. NOTE: Dough should be sticky at this point.

6. Remove dough from 'fridge and place rounded tablespoonfuls on ungreased baking sheets (or line with parchment paper). Be sure to space them 2" apart.

*If you can't find vegan mini marshmallows, use the big ones and cut them smaller.
