2. Empty jar into a large mixing bowl.
3. Add 4 TBSP (1/2 of 1 stick) very soft butter or margarine (not diet or tub)
1/3 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla
4. Mix well. Dough will be very sticky and loose.
5. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls 2" apart on sprayed baking sheets. (You want 16 cookies)
6. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes. Remove from oven and quickly press a marshmallow into top of each cookie. Return to the oven for 4 more minutes.
7. Empty chocolate chips into a microwave safe dish. Add 1 tsp. oil--mix well. Microwave 45 seconds. Stir to melt. Melt 15-30 more seconds. Stir to completely melt. Put melted chocolate back into bag.
