How To Make Hot Cocoa Cookies

How To Make Hot Cocoa Cookies

    1. Make the cookie dough mixture: Put your butter and chocolate to melt first in a double broiler, and set that to the side. Mix your dry components in a bowl: baking powder, cocoa powder, flour, and salt. Then blend your eggs, vanilla, and sugar with a stand mixer. Place in your chilled chocolate, and carefully blend that in the flour mix. Put a cover on it and pop it in your fridge for 4 hours.

    2. Cook your cookies: Spoon out some of your batter with a cookie scoop, and make it into a ball. Layer your cookies 2 inches away from each other, and put them in your oven to cook for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cut your marshmallows in half. When baked, press down half of a marshmallow on the middle of each cookie. Then put it back in the oven for 2 to 3 minutes. Place your cookie on a cooling rack to chill.

    3. Make your icing: In a bowl, combine all the components for your icing, pour in some water in case it comes off too thick.

    4. Garnish your cookies: Put a scoop of your icing on a few cookies. Pepper the sprinkles on top. Then repeat the process on a few more cookies. It’s done this way so that the glaze doesn’t harden before adding the sprinkles.

    5. When they’re all frosted, you can now enjoy your Hot Cocoa cookies!

How To Store hot cocoa cookies

How To Store:

To keep your cookies fresh, store them at room temperature in a sealed container. In case you want them to last you longer, you’re able to freeze them in a plastic bag or a freezer container. Don’t forget to put parchment paper in between each cookie to prevent them from sticking to each other. Once you’re willing to enjoy them, let them defrost at room temperature, or get that freshly baked taste back by popping them in the oven for a few minutes.
