Hot Chocolate Cookies Recipe
- 115 grams unsalted butter
- 100 grams hot chocolate powder
- 100 grams golden caster sugar
- 1 large egg
- 150 grams plain flour
- 0.5 teaspoon baking powder
- 50 grams milk chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 40 grams mini marshmallows
- Line a couple of baking sheets with baking paper and put to one side for now.
- In a large bowl, or stand mixer cream together the butter and the sugar until smooth.
- Crack the egg in a separate jug and add into the mix, along with the vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
- Add the flour, baking powder and hot chocolate powder and mix until combined.
- Using an ice cream scoop or melon baller (or even just spoons if you don’t have these to hand), scoop the cookie dough onto a baking sheet about 2 inches apart. They will spread when baking.
- Chill in the fridge for an hour (the cookie dough, not you. You can chill with a cup of tea)
- After 45 minutes, preheat the oven to 350 ºF or 175 ºC. Remove the cookies from the fridge and gently press them down a bit.
- Bake for 8 minutes and then add the marshmallows. Bake for a further 4 minutes, until the marshmallows start to toast.
- Leave to cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack. Allow to cool completely before removing from the baking sheets.
You can easily double the recipe to make a bigger batch of cookies.
