Hot Cocoa Cookies
Hot cocoa is warm and comforting on a cold winter day. One of my favorite ways to relax in the cold months. There’s nothing really more soothing than wrapping yourself in a cuddly blanket and sipping on a big hot mug of hot cocoa. Until now!
These Hot Cocoa Cookies replicate that delightful taste and feeling of a warm cup of hot cocoa on a chilly day. Warm, gooey, and rich chocolate cookies made with hot cocoa mix and filled and topped with toasted, gooey, and sticky marshmallows. Heaven on a baking sheet.
Hot Cocoa Cookies Recipe
- 1¼ cups butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- ⅔ cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3¼ cups flour
- ¾ cup (about 4 envelopes) milk chocolate hot cocoa mix
- 1¼ teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ½ cup mini marshmallows
- 12 large marshmallows, cut in half (I cut them in half height-wise so that they would still be circular)
- In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy
- Add eggs and vanilla and mix again.
- Combine flour, hot cocoa mix, baking soda, and baking powder and gradually mix into butter mixture. Stir until combined.
- Fold in chocolate chips and mini marshmallows.
- Chill dough for about one hour.
- Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto a greased cookie sheett, 2 inches apart.
- Bake in a 350° oven for 5 minutes. Remove cookies and press half of a large marshmallow onto each cookie. Continue baking for another 4-6 minutes, until edges are set. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheet onto cooling rack.
