Drop by teaspoons on baking sheet and bake 8 minutes at 350. Remove and top each cookie with 1/2 marshmallow, cut to make two flat halves so the cookies look like top hats. Put back in oven for 2 minutes. When cool, frost with topping made by combining cocoa, powdered sugar, salt, butter and cream. Top each cooky with a whole pecan.
