Minty Rocky Roads- BHG Treasury of Baking Recipes

This recipe comes from BHG Treasury of Baking Recipes, 1979. I found the book at a thrift store last week and it has some very yummy sounding recipes. This particular recipe seems like it would be a good Christmas bar cookie.
Minty Rocky Roads
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
Chocolate Glaze
In small saucepan melt one-half of 1-ounce square unsweetened chocolate and 1 tablespoon butter over low heat stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla till mixture is crumbly. Blend in enough boiling water (about 1 tablespoon) till glaze is of pouring consistency.
In mixer bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Beat in egg, milk and extract. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt; add to creamed mixture. Mix just till blended. Stir in marshmallows and chopped walnuts. Spread in greased 9x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake in 375 degree oven for 18 to 20 minutes. Cool cookies till slightly warm. Drizzle with warm Chocolate Glaze. Cut in bars. Makes 2 dozen.
