Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar together until light, about 3-4 minutes.
Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
Add flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt, mixing on medium-low speed until combined.
Stir in chocolate chips, almonds, and marshmallows. Scoop balls of cookie dough onto the parchment-lined baking sheet using a medium cookie scoop.
Bake for 9-11 minutes, until mostly set, but still underbaked in the middle. Remove from the oven and immediately place a few extra marshmallows on top of each cookie, along with a few extra chopped almonds and chocolate chips, if desired. Return to the oven and bake for 1 minute longer, until marshmallows have puffed slightly.
Cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container on the counter for up to 5 days.
Walnuts can be used instead of almonds. For more uniform cookies, lightly roll each ball of dough between your palms before baking.
