Description

I decided to see what happens if you add hot chocolate mix to cookie batter. AMAZING things, that’s what.

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks Salted Butter, At Room Temperature
  • 1 cup White Granulated Sugar (I Like Baker's)
  • ⅔ cups Packed Light Brown Sugar
  • 2 whole Large Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla
  • 3-¼ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 4 packages (1 Oz. Packets, NOT Sugar-free) Hot Chocolate Mix
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1-¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 cup Each White, Milk, And Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

Preparation

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter and sugars until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. In a separate bowl, combine flour, hot chocolate mix, salt and baking soda. Add to wet ingredients in 3 to 4 parts, making sure all is incorporated. Fold in chips. Chill the dough for an hour or so. Use a 1/4 cup as a scoop to scoop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.

These cookies are really good. I have made them twice now but did make a change. Instead of white chocolate chips I use mini marshmallows. Once baked they have a toffee like texture. You will have to use parchment paper when baking because they will stick to the baking sheet if not. And let them cool for 5 or more minutes.

Perfect way to use up Hot Chocolate packets! They were awesome! I chilled my dough over night and only used one package of milk and white swirl chocolate chips. The hot chocolate packets that I used had the mini marshmallows which were a nice touch.

These were scrum-diddley-umptious!

I did not chill my dough either and they turned out fine, I also had to cook mine more around 15 minutes than 9. The next batch I’m going to put marshmallows on top! Yummy!

These are the go-to cookies for any occasion. My daughter is renowned in her middle school for them and I get requests for them at every pot luck. We add an extra stick of melted butter to make the dough easier to work with (because what’s one more, honestly?), and they are consistently delicious!
