Hot Chocolate Cookies
1 and 1/4 cups butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 1/4 cups flour
4 packages (or 3/4 cups) hot cocoa mix (I used 4 packs of Swiss Miss hot coco)
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1 cup Mini Marshmallows (or you can use the mini marshmallows from your hot coco mix)
Step 1. Mix butter, sugar, and brown sugar into a bowl until light and fluffy. Then mix in eggs and vanilla.
Step 2. Slowly mix in your flour in your mixture.
Step 3. Mix in hot coco powder, salt, baking soda, baking powder into the batter. This batter is like a sugar cookie batter so it's pretty crumbly so you might want to use your hands to mix everything together. If doing chocolate chips, mix them into your batter.
Step 4. Refrigerate for about an hour.
Step 5. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Step 6. Scoop about 2 tablespoons of batter and roll into a ball. Place onto cookie sheet and use your thumb to create a thumbprint in the dough. You should be able to fit 2 to 3 mini marshmellows in this space.
Step 7. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes, or until lightly gold brown on the bottom (marshmallows should also have a nice golden toasted color)
Step 8. Enjoy!
These cookies were the perfect little snack while we binge watching Making a Murder. And definitely fulfilled my craving for something s'more like. If you are looking for something super chocolatey I would suggest to use chocolate chips and a richer hot chocolate mix (maybe something like Godiva or Ghiradelli hot chocolate mix). The best part about this recipe is that it's stuff that you most likely have in your pantry already.
