Hot Cocoa Cookies

If you love Hot Cocoa, you are going to really love these Hot Cocoa Cookies. They're rich and fudgy with gooey marshmallows in every bite. They taste just like Hot Cocoa but in cookie form!

These Hot Cocoa Cookies are so easy to make. They come together really quickly and taste delicious.

A FEW NOTES BEFORE WE GET STARTED

Preheat oven to 350º F. Whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl and set aside.

In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter, sugar, and melted chocolate on medium speed until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Add eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla. With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour mixture and mix until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Stir in most of the mini marshmallows and chocolate chips, making sure to save the rest for the tops of the cookies. Using a 2 tablespoon scoop, form cookies into balls and place each cookie on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Add remaining marshmallows and chocolate chips to the tops of the cookies. Do your best to try and keep any marshmallows away from the edges and bottoms of each cookie ball.

Place each cookie a few inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until cookies are firm around the edges.

Let the cookies cool for about 10 minutes on the baking sheet before carefully moving them to a cooling rack. Enjoy!
