I don't know about you but I love baking throughout the holidays! I already participated in a cookie exchange this year and just made a fresh batch of Hot Cocoa cookies. I wanted to try a new recipe that would delight others' taste buds and put them into the Christmas spirit. Sitting by the tree and drinking hot cocoa is a fun tradition and pastime so why not make hot cocoa cookies and eat them tree side!?
There are quite a few ingredients and these aren't the type of cookies that require zero prep time but they're worth it, pinky swear! This recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies.
1 Cup Marshmallows
1 Cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 1/4 Baking Soda
1 Cup White Sugar
2/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1 1/4 Cup Butter
1 Tsp. Vanilla
3 1/4 Cup Flour
4 Packs of Instant Hot Cocoa
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Melt butter in sauce pan
Once melted, mix sugar and butter into a bowl and stir until well mixed
In a separate bowl, mix hot cocoa mix, flour, baking powder, and baking soda until well mixed
Pour sugar and butter mixture into the flour mixture bowl and mix well
Add marshmallows and chocolate chips and continue to mix
Scoop tablespoon size mixture onto wax paper
Bake for 10 minutes
Cool and enjoy!
