Hot cocoa and hot cocoa cookies, the perfect way to warm up after being out in the cold! I found this recipe on the back of the Mallow Bits package and it is originally from Christi at Love from the Oven.
I randomly came across the mallow bits during a trip to Target. So, I know you can find them there! I also used the hot cocoa with the mini marshmallows because that was what I had!
Hot Cocoa Cookies
1-1/4 cups butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla
3-1/4 cups flour
4 packets instant hot cocoa mix (Do not use sugar-free mix)
1-1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup vanilla mallow bits
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and sugars in large bowl with standing mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Combine next 4 ingredients. Gradually beat into butter mixture until blended. Stir in chocolate chips and mallow bits. Drop 2 tablespoons dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheet. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 5 min; remove to wire racks and cool.
