Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

In large bowl, using hand mixer on medium speed, beat butter until smooth; beat in granulated sugar and brown sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla; stir in flour mixture just until combined.

Drop by 2 tbsp, 2 inches apart, onto prepared pans. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, until tops are puffed but still shiny, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven; top each cookie with about 5 marshmallows. Return to oven and bake for 2 minutes. Let cool on pan on rack for 2 minutes; transfer directly to rack to cool for 15 minutes.

In heatproof bowl set over saucepan of gently simmering water, melt chocolate, stirring, until smooth; drizzle over tops of cookies. Let stand until cooled completely and chocolate is firm, about 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Layer between parchment paper in airtight container and store for up to 3 days.)

Makes about 36 cookies.
