I love baking cookies and finding new recipes to try. The smell that fills your house when cookie dough cooks in the oven is my favorite thing. Once you make these you’ve got to try our other Hot Cocoa Cookies recipe and our Peanut Butter Muddy Buddy Cookies.

Hot Chocolate Cookies
My kids and I just made hot cocoa the other day when we had a big snow storm. We may have a new cold weather tradition: hot chocolate cookies!
Everyone loves chocolate chips and marshmallows, right? Putting those ingredients with sweet cream butter, vanilla and cocoa mix is bound to make for a delicious treat.
Making Hot Chocolate Cookies
You can add to these hot chocolate cookies a number of other fun ingredients. We love to put in peanut butter chips, caramel chips, coconut flakes, nuts or sprinkles.
Don’t forget to make sure you’ve softened your butter before making these (or any chocolate chips cookies). A heated glass over top of your butter is the best way to get it soft and ready for cookie baking.
When they’re all ready, serve them next to a glass of warm hot cocoa!
