Imagine your hands wrapped around a warm mug of velvety hot cocoa with marshmallows floating on top. Then take all those sights, smells, and flavors and put them in a cookie!
Hot Cocoa Cookies are loaded with all the cozy flavors of hot cocoa. A rich cookie base is studded with melted chocolate chips and gooey mini marshmallows. Dust a little cocoa over the top for some holiday magic.
Hot cocoa cookies are fantastic for cold-weather baking, midnight treats, or sharing with family and friends.
It’s important to note: This is not your ordinary chocolate cookie. You can have those any old time of the year. This hot cocoa cookie recipe actually tastes like a cup of hot cocoa—in cookie form.
Snuggle up on the couch with your favorite holiday movie, a plate of these delicious cookies, and a mug of steaming hot cocoa. ‘Tis the season to splurge.
Why KJ Loves
Hot Cocoa Cookies
All the wonderful, nostalgic flavors of a mug of hot cocoa wrapped up in a cookie form. Count me in! These cookies are fun to make and eat!
Hot Cocoa Cookie Tip:
Wait to add the mini marshmallows until halfway through the baking process. This will prevent the marshmallows from getting burnt and will result in gooey, sticky marshmallows.
A Dusting of Magic
I like to finish these cookies by dusting them with a packet of hot cocoa mix. It’s not required, but it takes these cookies to the next level!
