Hot Chocolate Cookies - Enjoy a cozy winter favorite in more than just a glass!!

I am in a new group this month for Secret Recipe Club!  It is exciting to have a new group of blogs to get to know.  Today I was assigned Crumbs and Chaos.  This blog is written by 4 sisters.  Between them they have 11 children, and 1 more on the way.  There are so many great recipes, I really did have a hard time picking what to make.  I thought about Thin Mint Popcorn, Butterfinger Oreo Ice Cream Dessert, and Wonton Tacos.

In the end I had to go with these cookies.  I have seen a few version of a Hot Chocolate Cookies, and have wanted to try them.  Now that the mornings are a little cooler, it seemed like the right time.  But what do you need with hot chocolate?  Marshmallows!  I have been wanting to use those new little marshmallow bits, and this was the perfect opportunity.

Hot Chocolate Cookies - Enjoy a cozy winter favorite in more than just a glass!!

This is your basic chocolate chip cookie, with hot chocolate mixed in, and then for good measure some marshmallows.  They are soft, extra chocolatey, and delicious.  Definitely calls for a tall glass of milk.  I gave one to my son when they were still warm, and he said “This is one of the reasons I love you, you are the best cookie baker”.  So you know they must be good! Warm up this winter with hot chocolate cookies with that glass of hot chocolate!
