Chocolate cake with a chocolate chip marshmallow filling and chocolate buttercream frosting

I made some chocolate chip cookies the other day, when it was humid, I did not have a chance to refrigerate them long enough and they came out flat.

I am sure they tasted fine, but they did not look presentable. So I decided to make them into a truffle filling and put it between two chocolate cake layers and frost with chocolate buttercream frosting. You can use Oreos, nutter butters, nilla wafers or whatever kind of cookie you want. And you can leave the marshmallows out of the filling if you want as well.
