Feature: Hot Chocolate Cookies : Better Than Cocoa!

Baby, it's cold outside! This Hot Chocolate Cookie Recipe lets you have your cocoa and eat it too.

It’s the chocolate chips and miniature marshmallows – melted and browned on the top, just like they’d be if warmed under an oven broiler or over a campfire – that make the difference.

The marshmallows melt and ooze, adding a hint of caramel flavor, too.

Pair them up with a glass of milk or a cup of hot chocolate and you'll feel cozy and warm even when it's cold outside.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 9-11 minutes
Makes about 4-5 dozen cookies
