Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 C unsalted sweet cream butter
1 1/2 C nestle semi-sweet chocolate
1 1/2 C flour
1/4 C hershey cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 C brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
12 large marshmallows cut in half
For the chocolate icing:

2 C powdered sugar
4 tbsp unsalted sweet cream butter, melted
1/4 C hershey cocoa powder
1/4 C hot water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Christmas sprinkles


Directions

For the cookies:

In a double boiler, melt the butter and chocolate, stirring frequently. Once melted, set aside to cool
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
In a standing mixer, beat the sugar, eggs and vanilla on low speed until combined.
Add the cooled chocolate and mix until combined
Gradually add in the flour ingredients and mix until combined
Scoop the dough (Will be brownie like texture) into a bowl and cover with foil and place into the fridge for 4 hours.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop some batter into your hands and roll into a ball
Place cookies about 2 inches apart
Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes
While cookies are baking, cut the marshmallows in half
Once cookies are baked, place a marshmallow into the center of the cookies and lightly press down
Place cookies back into the oven for another 2-3 minutes
Place a wire rack over another cookie sheet to allow the icing to drip off
Once cookies are done baking let cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack while you make the icing
For the icing:


Combine all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix until combined
If the icing is still to thick, add about 3 tbsp of hot water to it to thin it out
Using a spoon, spoon some icing onto the marshmallow on the cookie
Repeat step number 3 onto a few more cookies
Sprinkle a little bit of sprinkles onto the cookies
Repeat the last two steps onto the remaining cookies. Remember to only put icing onto a few cookies at a time because the icing will dry fast.
Once all the cookies have icing and sprinkles ENJOY your Hot Cocoa Cookies!

MEGHAN — DECEMBER 19, 2019 @ 1:42 PM REPLY
I actually got 44 out of it, i used a cookie scoop!

BRENDA. COOK — MAY 31, 2019 @ 4:18 PM REPLY
Sound delicious! Can’t wait to try! I try to cut down the sugars and fats in recipes to eat healthier so if you come up with any ideas, that would be great!

LAURA — NOVEMBER 15, 2019 @ 11:41 AM REPLY
Switch out the sugars with Stevia, switch the chocolate chips to sugar free, and if you can find them sugar free marshmallows but marshmallows will be very little sugar so it will just be low sugar cookies instead of sugar free

Suenan deliciosas. Las voy a tratar mañana. Gracias por la receta

These are absolutely delish. One of my all time fav.

CAREY — NOVEMBER 25, 2019 @ 7:25 PM REPLY
FINALLY! One person out of all these comments that has actually made these cookies! At least she said they were delish. I gave it 5 stars because I am assuming they will be.

ANDREA — NOVEMBER 25, 2019 @ 11:40 PM REPLY
Is this made with the Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa powder or sweetened? I have unsweetened, and don’t even know if sweetened exists!!! Lol! I just want to be able to make this tomorrow, and all I’d have to buy are marshmallows

[email protected] — NOVEMBER 27, 2019 @ 10:11 AM REPLY
Unsweetened cocoa powder is used for this recipe.

SARAH — NOVEMBER 29, 2019 @ 3:14 PM REPLY
Once mixes it resembled batter? Is that normal? I guess we will see!

JEN — NOVEMBER 26, 2019 @ 6:16 PM REPLY
Can you make the cookie batter the day before baking?

CHRISTINA — DECEMBER 14, 2019 @ 1:46 AM REPLY
I made the dough yesterday and baked them today. They came out perfect!

LORETTA WHITTEN — NOVEMBER 29, 2019 @ 5:02 PM REPLY
Best cookies ever! Very soft brownies like texture. Not over sweet like it looks. Will make again. Will also will use the dough in different ways with nuts.

SANDI — NOVEMBER 29, 2019 @ 5:34 PM REPLY
Can you freeze them?

PAULINE — DECEMBER 8, 2019 @ 12:54 PM REPLY
Love the hot cocoa cookies
Can they be frozen ?

ERIKA — DECEMBER 13, 2019 @ 12:25 AM REPLY
Everyone loved these! Next time I’m going to make the base cookie but add some different crumbles on top of the drizzle….I think I’ll try those Andes mints chopped up instead of marshmallows. You can do so much with this cookie it’s so yummy!

CHRISTINE JANKE — DECEMBER 17, 2019 @ 8:27 PM REPLY
I followed this recipe as written. I have a convection oven, and the first pan I baked at 300 instead of the 325 listed. First pan was a disaster, the cookies were not done completely and I had a hard time getting them off the parchment paper. Ultimately what I ended up doing, was baking them in convection mode at exactly 325. The cookies were about the size of a golf ball. After 10 minutes, I put the half marshmallow on top of each cookie and continued baking for exactly 3 minutes. After I took them out of the oven for the last time, I let them sit for about 3 minutes and then slid the parchment paper with the cookies still on it on to my counter and spooned the icing onto each cookie. In the recipe it says to add 3 tablespoons of hot water if the icing got too thick, but it worked better to add just one to two teaspoons of hot water if I needed to thin it, since the heat from the cookies thins the frosting anyway. The cookies are really good and the first batch I made that didn’t turn out is really good with a couple scoops of ice cream so no waste there. I will keep this recipe and made notes for myself for next time.

I have been baking cookies for over 20 years. In all of those years, my husband says these are the BEST cookies I have ever made. Made them for an open house and people were posting on FB that other people needed to come if nothing else but to try one of these cookies! WOW.

PAM — DECEMBER 23, 2019 @ 1:23 PM REPLY
These were a huge hit. Worth the few extra steps. Will make again. I got about 48 with the Pampered Chef scoop.

HOLLY MORGAN — DECEMBER 23, 2019 @ 2:19 PM REPLY
These cookies are a new family favorite! My husband and 3 boys can’t get enough of them.

KELLY G — DECEMBER 25, 2019 @ 9:00 PM REPLY
These cookies are by far in comparison the best cookies I have ever had. My family was very impressed. I will be keeping this recipe. Thank you for sharing it with us.
