Hot Chocolate Cookies for #SundayFunday

Welcome to #SundayFunday! Wendy from A Day In The Life on The Farm invited fellow bloggers to kick back, relax, and share something tasty and fun each weekend. "Sunday should be a Family Funday. Please join us in sharing recipes that will help you to enjoy your Sunday." If you're a blogger interested in joining us, just visit our Facebook group and request to join!

Today our #SundayFunday group is hosted by Cam from Culinary Adventures with Camilla. She said: "January 31st is National Hot Chocolate Day. Let's share our favorite versions of this delicious drink, recipes for any extra special touches (thinking homemade marshmallows!), or a food that has all of the trappings of hot chocolate (maybe chocolate cake with torched marshmallows on top). Okay, I clearly have marshmallows on the mind. Join me."

Come to the dark side... we have marshmallows? Ok!! I'm in. 

Today I opted to make hot chocolate in cookie form - and they do not disappoint. The cookie dough is also DELICIOUS. Be careful. You've been warned.

You can add in some of the mini mallows from the hot cocoa packets if you'd like - but I love the rich warm chocolatey flavor in these cookies, and the fabulous texture! They bake up beautifully.

If you want the dough to hold its shape even better, just chill for at least 30 minutes (up to overnight) before baking. 

If you want to totally "up" your hot chocolate game - definitely serve these alongside a cup of cocoa! A chocolate coma may ensue.

Hot Chocolate Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups all purpose flour
4 packages hot cocoa mix (I used Swiss Miss)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a tray with a silpat.
  2. Cream the softened butter with the granulated sugar until lightened in color and creamy. Add in the brown sugar and cream another minute. Add in the eggs, 1 at a time, until well incorporated, add in the vanilla and blend.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, cocoa mix, salt, baking soda, baking powder. Whisk to combine. Slowly blend the dry ingredients into the butter mixture until just combined. Gently stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Use a cookie scoop and mound the dough (12 dough balls at a time) onto a large cooking baking tray.
  5. Bake 9-11 minutes, until lightly browned along the bottom and cooked through. Cool for about 5 minutes on the baking tray before moving to a cooling rack to complete cooling. Repeat with remaining dough.
  6. If you'd like the cookies to hold their shape more and not spread as much, chill at least 30 minutes before baking.

  3. What a wonderful idea Rebekah, to add hot cocoa mix to the cookie dough. Hot Chocolate Cookies and Hot cocoa does sound like a perfect chocolate coma to enjoy.
