Hot Chocolate Cookie Recipe

Baby it's cold outside and you want some hot chocolate, right?  It's that time of year again where we all roll up our sleeves and fight the great fight against time to produce as many awesome cookies we can before Santa comes down our chimneys!  Why not have your hot chocolate in cookie form?  These wonderful cookies are sure to please any chocoholics out there.  Proceed with caution, you can't have just one!

One note I might add is that this recipe is going to be difficult for people just starting out with baking as these take a particular process.  The time and effort on these are so worth it!


1/2 C Butter
12 oz bag Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 1/4 C Brown Sugar
3 Eggs
2 tsp Vanilla
1/4 C Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 1/2 C Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
8 oz Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate split into 1 inch pieces for 32 cookies, plus more grated to top with
16 large Marshmallows, cut in half

In a medium saucepan, melt Butter and Chocolate Chips and stir often.  Just when everything is melted through, take off the heat and set aside for 5 minutes to slightly cool.

Meanwhile, beat Brown Sugar, Eggs and Vanilla.  Beat in slightly cooled chocolate mix.  Add Cocoa Powder, Flour, Baking Powder and Salt.  Once combined, cover bowl and refrigerate for 2 hours.  This would be a good time to grate the extra chocolate, store in fridge until use.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees f.  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper to prevent burning.  Scoop cookie dough with a spoon onto cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart from eachother.  Dough drops will be slightly larger than walnut size.

Bake for 12 minutes.  Place 1 piece of Baker's Chocolate in the middle on top of each cookie.  Place 1 Marshmallow half on each chocolate piece on the cookie.  Return to oven and bake for another 4 minutes.  Take out, dust with grated chocolate and cool by leaving on pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling racks.  Let cool long enough for chocolate to harden back up (maybe 2 hours).  Store in airtight container.
