Hot Chocolate Cookies

This year we wanted to add something new to our long list of holiday desserts. When the name Hot Chocolate Cookies came up we knew it was a must. My hubby is crazy about marshmallows so he really enjoyed this cookie. They are so great warm! Hope you enjoy this cookie this year too!

To all who celebrate Christmas. We wish you the Merriest Christmas from our family to yours.

Hot Chocolate Cookies

  • 1/2 cup butter, unsalted
  • 12 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 7 oz. Hersey's bar (broke into sections then cut in half, save any broken pieces & shavings)
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 25 - 30 marshmallows

Cooking Directions

  1. *In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate chips, stirring frequently, over medium heat. Let cool for 15 minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat the sugar, eggs and vanilla at low speed until smooth, 2 minutes. Mix in the cooled chocolate mixture just until blended. Add the flour mixture in 2 batches, mixing on low speed until just combined. Refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour. (If making the dough a day ahead, let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before shaping.)
  4. Position a rack in the upper third of the oven; preheat to 325°. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment. Using a tablespoon, scoop the dough and roll between your palms to form 1-inch balls. Arrange about balls 2 inches apart on each cookie sheet, flattening slightly. Bake until the tops of the cookies crack, about 12 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, snip 8 marshmallows in half crosswise and stick 1 square of chocolate onto each of the cut sides.
  6. Remove the cookie sheets from the oven; gently press a marshmallow half, chocolate side down, into each cookie. Bake until the marshmallows are just softened, about 4 minutes. Transfer the pans to racks to cool for 5 minutes; sprinkle the remaining chocolate over the hot cookies. Using a spatula, transfer the cookies to the racks; let cool. Repeat the process with the remaining dough, marshmallows and chocolate. Bake each batch on a clean sheet of parchment paper.

Makes 50 to 60 cookies
