Hot Chocolate Cookies
This cookie is sweet, chocolatey, and easy to make. A chocolate cookie with chocolate chunks and caramelized marshmallows, it’s a decadent cookie that’s both fun to make, and fun to eat.
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 300g bag
- 1 1/4 cup light brown sugar packed
- 3 large eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 15 large marshmallows cut into halves
- 1 cup dark chocolate chunks
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt together butter and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Stir at 30-second intervals until melted. Let cool for 5 minutes.TIP: You’ll want this melted but not hot. If too hot, it will scramble the eggs when you add them in.
In a large mixing bowl beat together chocolate mixture, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes.
In a separate bowl stir together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and beat just until mixed. Don’t over mix.
Cover mixing bowl with food-safe wrap and place in the fridge for one hour.
Line three baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. You’ll want to bake just one tray at a time.
Scoop 2 tablespoon-sized balls of cookie dough and place 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Slightly press down the tops of each cookie ball.
Preheat oven to 325F.
Bake one tray at a time for about 10 minutes each. Tops should be slightly set.
Remove from the oven and place 3 to 4 chunks of dark chocolate chunks on each cookie. Press down slightly but don’t press all the way to the bottom of the cookie.
Place a half marshmallow on the top of each cookie, placing the cut side up.
Bake for an additional 3 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside for now. Repeat steps with other baking sheets.
When all cookies are baked and out of the oven, turn the oven up to broil. Place one cookie sheet at a time into the oven for about 20 to 30 seconds to brown the tops of the marshmallows. TIP: Watch these carefully as they will burn quickly.
