Hot Chocolate Cookies with Mini Marshmallows

“Empty?! You took all the cookies!”

“They were crying to get out of the jar… Cookies get claustrophobia too, you know!”

-Charles M. Schulz


Hot-chocolate with marshmallows has already made its appearance many times in our house this season (and it hasn’t even been very cold outside!). There’s something so comforting about a warm chocolate drink topped with some fluffy marshmallows, and it’s not hard to see why.


When I saw a recipe for hot-chocolate cookies I wasted no time gathering up ingredients and experimenting with the recipe to obtain the best results. After I tasted one of these delicious cookies I was immediately hooked. I was surprised that even my boyfriend (who usually only eats my cupcakes) happily ate a few of these and requested them the next night. Needless to say they did not last long and if we owned a cookie jar, I’m not sure they would’ve even made it inside!


Hot Chocolate Cookies with Mini Marshmallows

  • Yield : 25 cookies



  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, hot chocolate mix, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla extract until incorporated.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture. Mix until well blended (dough will be crumbly).
  • Using your hands, knead dough a few times until it comes together. Roll dough into balls (roughly the size of a tablespoon) and place onto parchment lined baking sheets (if needed).
  • Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until slightly firm.
  • As soon as you remove the cookies from the oven, place marshmallows on top of cookies and press down lightly.
  • After cooling for a few minutes on baking sheet, transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

**Note about hot chocolate mix: I experimented with the amount of hot chocolate mix used in this recipe. At first I only used about 1oz of mix and the cookies tasted good but I wanted a more intense chocolate flavor so I doubled the amount of mix. Adding more hot chocolate mix made the cookies darker and much more flavorful. Everyone that tasted the second batch loved them! The hot chocolate packets I use are 1 oz each so I used two total in this recipe, but it equals about 1/3 cup.
