How to Make Hot Chocolate Cookies

Start by preheating your oven to 350 F and line two baking pans with parchment paper.

Cookie Dough

In a medium sized bowl whisk flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda together. Set aside.

In a large bowl or stand mixer with the paddle attachment cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. This usually takes 2-3 minutes. Add in egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract and mix till combined.

Add the flour mixture in and mix till combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Scoop 3 tbsp worth of the cookie dough and shape into a ball, I like to use a large cookie/ice cream scoop. Place cookie dough balls 2 inches apart from each other on the baking sheet.

Bake for 9 minutes. While cookie are baking cut your marshmallows in half. After 9 minutes remove cookies from the oven and add a marshmallow half on top of each cookie, pressing it in slightly.

Place cookies back in the oven for 2 more minutes. After baking allow cookies to fully cool on the pan.

Chocolate Ganache

In a microwave safe bowl heat cream to just before boiling (about 40 seconds). Place chocolate chips in a bowl and pour the hot cream on top. Let sit for 30 seconds before whisking together.

The ganache should be smooth. Spoon the chocolate ganache on top of the marshmallows and top with sprinkles.

STORING THE COOKIES

These cookies should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature. The cookies keep well up to three days.

HOW TO GET PERFECTLY ROUND COOKIES

As soon as the baked cookies are pulled from the oven place a round cookie cutter (a little bit large than the cookies) around the cookies and gently swirl it around. This will give your cookie a round shape. If you don’t have a cookie cutter you can use a glass or a jar lid.

Can I Freeze the Cookies?

No, these cookies do not freeze well.
