For todays delicious post I’m sharing my recipe for The Most Chocolatey Hot Chocolate Cookies. They really are SO CHOCOLATEY. Fudgy, chewy and unbelievably good.
A Pretty Life Christmas Cookie Week!
These cookies are also part of my Christmas Cookie Week! Over the course of this week I shared recipes for Christmas Oat Drops, these Hot Chocolate Cookies, Fruitcake Shortbread Squares, Cranberry Orange Brown Sugar Shortbread, Snowball Cookies and German Chocolate Thumbprints! All recipes are simple, use straightforward ingredients and can be frozen to enjoy later. Just what you need during this busy time of year…so make sure to check those out too! For now, let’s get to this recipe for The Most Chocolatey Hot Chocolate Cookies.
These Hot Chocolate cookies are the ultimate chocolate cookie. They are rich, chewy and full of delicious chocolate flavourful. Which makes them a perfect cookie to pair with marshmallows! Put together it’s like a cup of cocoa in cookie form…the best.
After making these cookies several times, I learned a few tricks…the biggest tip is to make sure to flatten the dough before you bake it, or the marshmallow will slide off the cookie while it bakes. I even found that if you make a slight dent with your thumb in the centre of the batter, it helps to anchor the marshmallow in place.
Then pop them into the oven to bake. The marshmallow bakes perfectly with the cookie and comes out soft and golden brown. Irresistible.
Just look at that toasted marshmallow…is your mouth watering yet?
I also like to give these cookies a light dusting of shaved semi-sweet chocolate…it makes them look pretty and adds even more delicious chocolate flavour. Just make sure to sprinkle it on once the cookies have cooled. I hope you make these Hot Chocolate cookies and enjoy them immensely!Print
Make sure to come back all week to get more of my delicious cookie recipes!
