Hot Chocolate Cookies
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
My family really enjoyed these cookies. I saw the recipe and really wanted to make them without waiting to find the marshmallow bits, so I used white chocolate/vanilla chips and they were great! I do agree with TheMaga65, that they were a bit "sugary". Knowing that there was hot cocoa in the batter, I could detect that and felt like it didn't incorporate 100%. But my family REALLY liked them. Perhaps next time I'll either cut back on the sugars or eliminate one packet of cocoa mix?? My cookies WERE NOT flat and gummy. They looked EXACTLY like the recipe photo.
The cookies fell flat and gummy. Too sugary. Maybe we didn't do it correctly.
These cookies taste wonderful!! BUT I found the dough very difficult to work with so am going to research other similar recipes to maybe find one that is easier but just as tasty. I did easily find the teeny vanilla marshmallows (by Kraft) in Target. The recipe calls for one cup and that cup takes up a bit more than half of the container so if planning to do more than one batch you'll need more than one container of the marshmallow pieces. Did I say the cookies taste great, though? If I have to make this particular recipe again I will do so because they are going to go fast!
The base recipe is uneventful, the only chocolate flavor comes from the chocolate chips. The vanilla bits weren't available so made homemade marshmallows and cut them into small pieces. They caramelized too quickly, so definitely need these bits. overall, wouldn't waste the ingredients.
Patricia Finn..I found the "Kraft jet puffed mallow bits" near the canned milk and hot cocoa mixes at publix. It comes in a 3oz clear plastic container with a blue cap. Hope you find them!??
These are so good, love them and with the cocoa mix it is so easy - easy and delicious
I would love to make these cookies, but I don't understand what vanilla marshmellow bits are. Where can I get them, a brand or some other clue please.
