You’re never too old to curl up by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa in your hand. Brings back childhood memories or perhaps you’re creating memories with your own children now. (Am I getting too sappy? Oh, well.) Some of my favorite memories growing up are baking cookies with my family. I took hold of my nostalgia, put two and two together, and made hot cocoa cookies.
Rich chocolatey flavor takes hold of your senses when biting into this cookie. Chocolate chips are melting away while cocoa takes up every bit of the dough holding it all together. A giant marshmallow topping the morsel is a gooey cloud of goodness. One of these cookies is a cup of hot cocoa in solid form, which in my opinion makes it all the more satisfying.
The recipe is quite simple. I took the base for my double chocolate candy cane cookies and topped it with a marshmallow. Plenty of chocolate no doubt. As I’m writing this I’m realizing I have an obsession with hot cocoa recipes. I’ve made hot cocoa brownies, another chocolatey confection with gooey marshmallows; hot chocolate truffles, which make a perfect gift for kids; and spiked hot chocolate cupcakes for the adults. Fireside here I come!
