Instructions

To make the cakes:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees with two racks, in the upper middle and lower middle positions.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

2.  Beat the butter and sugar in a stand mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, or about 5 minutes.  Beat in the egg and vanilla and scrape down the side of the bowl.

3.  Combine the flour, salt, and baking bowl in a large bowl.  Reduce the mixer speed to low.  Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture 1/2 cup at a time, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour.  Stir in the chocolate chips by hand or on the lowest mixer speed.

4.  Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop batter onto baking sheets spaced 2 inches apart in all directions.  There should new 12 cakes.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes, switching the baking sheets halfway through.  When fully baked, a cake tester will come out clean but the cakes will still be soft.  Remove to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.

To make the filling:

5.  Beat the powdered sugar and butter together until light and fluffy using a stand mixer on medium speed.  Add the salt and vanilla.  Add the marshmallow cream and beat until fully combined.

To serve:

6.  Spread 1/3 cup of filling onto the flat side of half of the cakes.  Place the remaining cakes on top to make a sandwich.  Serve immediately or refrigerate.

Notes

If the filling seems too soft and is not staying on the cakes, refrigerate them until it firms up.
