   Cream shortening; gradually add sugar, beating well at
   medium speed of an electric mixer. Add eggs, one at a time,
   beating well after each addition. Combine flour, soda,
   salt, and cocoa; add to creamed mixture, mixing well.  Stir
   in flavorings.  (Dough will be stiff.)  Chill dough at
   least 30 minutes. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place on
   greased cookie sheets.  Bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes.
   Place a marshmallow half on top of each cookie; bake an
   additional 2 minutes.  Cool on wire racks, and spread
   frosting over tops.  Yield:  about 3-1/2 dozen.
   
   FROSTING Combine first 3 ingredients in a saucepan. Cook
   over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate melts.
   Add powdered sugar, and beat until smooth.  Add additional
   milk to frosting mixture, if needed, for proper spreading
   consistency.  Yield:  1 cup.
