Hot Chocolate Cookies

Hot chocolate cookies are like hot cocoa in cookie form, with a soft, rich, chocolate cookie topped with melted chocolate and a gooey marshmallow! Just like your favorite cup of cocoa!

Servings: 48


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 12 oz chocolate chips
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 24-25 large marshmallows
  • 1 large chocolate bar


  • Melt together your butter and chocolate chips in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
  • Allow chocolate to cool for 15 minutes.
  • In a large bowl combine your dry ingredients (Your flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt) Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl cream together your brown sugar, eggs and vanilla until smooth.
  • Add your slightly cooled, melted chocolate mixture to your egg mixture and stir until combined.
  • Slowly add in your dry ingredients while stirring until mixed.
  • Cover your bowl tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours (The dough is like a thick cake batter before refrigerated, so you'll need it to firm up a good amount).
  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
  • Roll your dough into 1 1/2 -2 inch cookie dough balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, until cookies start to crack.
  • Meanwhile, cut your marshmallows in half and cut your chocolate into 1/2 inch pieces (I cut each piece from the bar into 3 pieces)
  • Remove from oven and top each cookie with a piece of chocolate and marshmallow and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
  • Sprinkle grated chocolate over the top of your marshmallows if desired.
