Recipe Of The Week: Hot Chocolate Cookies

By: Sam Liegner

These cookies are fun for the holiday season and are absolutely adorable. They are great for gift giving or even putting the dry ingredients all in a mason jar by layer and designing a little recipe tag to give to friends or family.

3 tablespoons butter (salted or unsalted either work)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
⅓ cup and 1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 egg
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup flour
1 tablespoon & 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
½ teaspoon baking powder
A pinch of salt
Mini marshmallows
Packet of hot cocoa mix (optional)

  1. In a smaller bowl melt the butter and chocolate chips until smooth and set aside to cool
  2. In a separate bowl mix the brown sugar, egg and vanilla together. Once the chocolate mixture is cooled mix with the wets.
  3. In another bowl mix all your dry ingredients and add into the wet ingredients 1 cup at time.
  4. Once all mixed together cover your bowl with saran wrap and let it chill for 30 minutes
  5. While waiting preheat your oven to 325 degrees and grease your pans
  6. When the dough is chilled scoop and roll balls about 1 inch
  7. Bake the cookies for 7 minutes, when that's done remove the tray from the oven and place 1 chocolate chip in center (optional) and then place one mini marshmallow in the center. Place cookies back in the oven and let them bake for another 4 minutes
  8. When the cookies are warm sprinkle some hot cocoa powder on top for more taste and more design
