Hot cocoa cookies are warm chocolate cookies topped with gooey marshmallows toasted in the oven. They’re perfect for Christmas!
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, removed the peppermint bits and kept the cocoa flavor. The cookies on their own are chewy and chocolatey and with a couple additions they turn into hot cocoa cookies.
I topped each cookie with a marshmallow and dusted them with cocoa powder. The cookies literally look like the top of a hot cocoa mug!
As I’m writing this I’m realizing I have an obsession with hot cocoa recipes. And who wouldn’t? Chocolate and marshmallows creates a tasty combo.
If you are a fan of cocoa recipes, then you will love these hot cocoa cookies. Curl up next to the fire with a plate of cookies and enjoy the winter season!
