Hot Chocolate Cookies

This is another recipe that I have been meaning to post since the holidays and have finally gotten around to it.  This was probably my favorite holiday cookie that I baked this year. I know it was my son and husband's favorite too!  It's like eating a cup of delicious hot chocolate and they are so moist and chewy too.  I made these over the holidays with my friends daughter who had a blast snacking on the marshmallows as we made them. 

I've been searching the net lately for some good munching food while we watch the Super Bowl on Sunday.  Over the years I have finally come to understand football better.  It's become tolerable to me now. Years back I just couldn't understand it.  But I think part of enjoying the Super Bowl is also all the food that goes along with it. I am looking very forward to that!  I'm hoping the Giants win...always have to vote for the home team!!!  Enjoy your weekend! (These cookies come to you courtesy of Recipe Shoebox).

1 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
4 packets Hot Chocolate Mix
1 tsp. salt
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips (didn't have these)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows

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 and mix until well combined - MIXTURE WILL BE THICK.  Fold in chips.  

Scoop dough (about a good size rounded teaspoon) onto large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 7 minutes.  Remove pan from oven and working quickly press 2 or 3 mini marshmallows into top of each cookie. Press firmly enough so that partially baked cookie flattens slightly.  Bake an additional 2 or 3 minutes or until marshmallow turns light gold on the edges.  Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes and remove to wire rack.

I don't really care for football, but I love Super Bowl food!

I've got recipes from the holidays I haven't posted either. These look yummy, especially with a mug of cocoa :-)
