1 c butter, softened

1 c sugar

2/3 c brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla

3 1/4 c all-purpose flour

4 packages hot cocoa mix (NOT SUGAR-FREE VERSIONS) or 3/4 c hot cocoa mix

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

1 c chocolate chips

1 c Mallow Bits (mini marshmallows do not work the same)


Start by creaming 1 cup of butter, 1 cup of sugar and 2/3 cup of brown sugar until the mixture becomes light and fluffy. Next add in 2 eggs and 1 teaspoon of vanilla ensuring that everything is well mixed.

In a bowl combine 3 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour, 4 packages of cocoa mix, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 2 teaspoons of baking powder.

Gradually incorporate the dry ingredients into the butter mixture while stirring to ensure they are well combined. Then gently fold in 1 cup of chocolate chips and an additional cup of Mallow Bits.

Cover the dough. Let it chill for, at least half an hour or up to a full day (24 hours) in the refrigerator.

To begin baking your cookies preheat your oven to a temperature of 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Drop two tablespoons of dough onto your prepared baking sheets. Make sure to space them two inches from one another.

Bake for a duration, between nine to eleven minutes. Until you notice that the edges have turned golden brown. Once baked allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for five minutes before moving them onto wire racks where they can cool down completely.

Now it’s time to indulge in these Hot Chocolate Cookies! Enjoy!
