If you can't get enough of that hot cocoa taste, then these Hot Cocoa Cookies are just what you need. These soft and cake-like cookies are perfect for dunking into your mug, and for snackin' on all winter long!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 24 large marshmallows, cut in half crosswise
  • 1 (16-ounce) can chocolate frosting

What to Do

  1. In a saucepan over low heat, melt butter and chocolate chips, stirring occasionally.
  2. In a large bowl, beat sugar, eggs, and vanilla until combined. Add melted chocolate mixture; mix well.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, and salt; add to chocolate mixture and beat until well combined. Cover and refrigerate dough 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball. Place on baking sheet and flatten slightly. Repeat until all dough is used.
  5. Bake 12 minutes. Remove from oven and place a marshmallow half in center of each cookie. Return cookies to oven and bake 2 to 3 additional minutes. Let cool 5 minutes, then remove cookies to a rack to cool completely. Spread a teaspoon of frosting over each marshmallow.


If you like, you can sprinkle these with different color sugars, depending on the occasion!

Kids loves these

These cookies are so pretty! I can't wait to make them over the holidays. I love marshmallows, so I knew that I was going to love this cookie. The texture is sort of cakey inside, just like the recipe says. The next time I eat these, I'll have to eat them with a cup of hot chocolate and extra marshmallows.
