Chocolate Chip Whoopies w Marshmallow Filling

I knew these would be a HIT with my kiddos & I couldn't resist the cuteness of them, so we whipped up a batch. Can't hurt to feed them treats the day before Mother's Day right? Personally I loved the cookies alone, minus the marshmallow filling....super soft & delicious. Obviously my kids devoured the filling. We had 3 extra kids over here playing all day today so each & every child was drooling until the cookies were ready to eat & then I had 7 happy kids sitting at the bar licking, biting, mmmm-ing and smiling.
