Going to be adding one cup of white Sugar and half a cup of brown sugar so When it comes to cookie making the best Cookies a way to have a combination of These two kinds of sugar the white sugar Gives a great texture well that brown Sugar has that slight molasses flavor That makes everything taste X extra good Especially around the holidays And I’m just going to go ahead and use My hand mixer and beat that butter and Sugar mixture until it’s nice and light And fluffy Alright so that is looking great next I’m going to go ahead and add two eggs To this mixture as well as a teaspoon of Vanilla extract and once again I’ll just Get in here with my hand mixer and blend That up until it’s really well combined Now that my wet ingredients are well Incorporated I’m going to go ahead and Add my dry ingredients probably do this Half at a time Mix that up until it’s really nicely Combined and then I’ll add the other Half and mix that up until what I’ve got Is this really nice chocolatey dough the Second those dry ingredients hit this Bowl I could smell the hot chocolate and It just brought back such awesome Childhood memories And Nostalgia factor is real All right guys so I’ve got this Beautiful hot chocolate infused dough

And now it’s time to add my mix-ins so For this recipe I opted for milk Chocolate chips this is totally a matter Of personal preference you could use Dark chocolate here you could use Semi-sweet milk chocolate just happens To remind me the most of hot chocolate So that’s what’s headed in here but the Most important ingredient in these Cookies to really capture that essence Of hot chocolate are my marshmallows for This recipe I am using dehydrated mini Marshmallows and what’s important about These is that unlike regular Marshmallows which just sort of melt During the cooking process these are Going to hold their shape if you can’t Find them at your Supermarket you’ll Likely find them at a bulk food store or You can buy them online I will link them In the description box below if you Can’t find them where you are they are Super tiny and they don’t have any Moisture in them and that’s really Critical to getting the best texture in These cookies Once I’ve got my marshmallows into my Bowl I’m just going to use a spoon and Stir this all together until it’s really Well mixed if your spoon’s not working Feel free to do this with your hands Instead it’s totally fine And then it’s going to be time to shape My cookies

I’ve got a large baking sheet here lined With some parchment paper and I’m going To be doing this with a nice big scoop Like this this helps make sure that your Cookies are nice and uniform once I’ve Scooped out my dough I’m just going to Form it into a little puck shape and Arrange it on my parchment lined baking Sheet This is a great job for the kids to help With I always let Elle help me shape the Cookies because it gives her something To do and occupies her attention for you Know a half hour 20 minutes or so I should also mention this cookie dough Freezes really really well so if you Want to make this in advance you just Shape your cookies and then freeze them Then when it comes time for baking you Can just add a couple minutes to your Bake time and they will be super good And fresh who doesn’t like freshly baked Cookies am I right Just before these head into the oven What I like to do is to stud the tops of Each of my cookies with some more milk Chocolate chips and some more Marshmallows This is just a food styling trick that Helps your cookies look extra fancy when They come out it is optional but I Promise you your cookies are going to be Instagram worthy if you do this extra Step

All right guys these are ready to hit The oven I’ve got it preheated to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit and I’m going to go Ahead and let these bake away for Between say 9 and 11 minutes The longer you bake them the more crisp Your cookies are going to be so if You’re really into soft chewy cookies Like I am opt for 10 minutes and if you Like your cookies a little more crispy No problem 12 or 13 minutes should do The trick Yummy [Music] By the time these come out of the oven Your entire kitchen is going to smell Like a delicious steaming hot cup of hot Chocolate and that’s how you know you Are in the promised land the hardest Part is just letting them cool I don’t know what else to say about it These cookies are totally irresistible They are so chocolatey so decadent so Holiday worthy and I really hope you Will give them a try for yourselves [Music] I have to guess that these hot chocolate Cookies would be 100 Santa approved I Hope you love this recipe as much as I Do and that you will give it a try for Yourselves if you do be sure to tweet me Instagram me or Facebook me a photo Because you know how much I love seeing Your Kitchen Creations remember this
