Hot Chocolate Cookies

by simplylife on February 22, 2012

Remember how I told you about how my husband proposed making marshmallows from scratch?  Yeah, that was a fun.

Well the recipe made a lot of marshmallows.

And while we drank our hot chocolate we dunked marshmallow after marshmallow into our steaming cups.

It was a glorious thing.

And then we woke-up the next morning and somehow there were still a lot of marshmallows left.  And I realized they probably don’t stay good as long as the ones that come in perfect little sizes in perfect little bags.

And I wanted the sweet taste of hot chocolate again.  But I’m a food blogger and cannot repeat a recipe.

And I realized I am starting too many sentences with the And.  When I shouldn’t ever start a sentence with that word.  Sorry about that.

Sooo I couldn’t let my precious new creation go to waste.  I turned to my new favorite information source.


Within seconds I had a recipe for Hot Chocolate Cookies and was baking away.

Within minutes we were biting into warm chocolate cookies with gooey marshmallows.

I can review cookbooks for a hobby.  Find recipes online in seconds.  And eat warm cookies with my husband.  Life is good.

    Brilliant. Who needs liquid when you can have a cookie?!

    I love cookies with lots of stuff in them: chocolate chips, M&Ms, pretzels (yes, pretzels!) The more stuff, the better!

  • Reem | Simply Reem

    These cookies look so so divine…
    Hot chocolate and marshmallows…. Yumm….
    B/W You know I too just notice that I start way too many sentences with AND… LOL

  • Amy B @ Second City Randomness

    I have a recipe for something similar to this because I was intrigued by them… And who doesn’t love marshmallow? (or the fluff- oh the fluff!)

    Cookies are my favorite dessert (of all time), so I’m not picky- I just prefer that they are soft and chewy, not crispy…

  • Sam

    These look infinitely superior to the Girl Scout cookies I just picked up from my niece. They’ll have to wait…well…let’s not think about how quickly we’re going to go through those cookies. But I am definitely making these. I think even D will like them. (And I’m totally with you on Pinterest…it’s awesome)

  • Jolene (

    My favourite kind of cookie is a chocolate chip cookie … has to be homemade. I made hot cocoa cookies once and they were fabulous! My students looooooved them!

  • Liz @ Tip Top Shape

    Oohh these look great! My favorite cookie are these white chocolate peanut butter cookies I make. They have oatmeal in them and are just all sorts of delicious. Usually I give away most of the batch when I bake, but I ate every last one of those cookies.

  • Julie

    Looks lovely & beautiful cookies… Yum yum!!

  • Lauren

    yum!! Sounds so delish 🙂

    Mhmm I love hot chocolate, marshmallows, and COOKIES! These are adorable!

  • Colleen

    Hot chocolate in cookie form – love! Awesome!

  • Kari

    Who knew there could be something better than hot chocolate with marshmallows?! You’ve done a good job of finding it! Also, I too start sentences with And far more than my childhood English teachers would like. But I’m sure it’s sometimes worth it 🙂

  • Spencer

    Looks like an awesome recipe. I love the food pics!

  • Ranjani

    mmmmm, these look fabulous – now what if you ate these while drinking hot chocolate?

    • Simply Life

      Oooh- that would be EXCELLENT!!!

  • Emily @ A Cambridge Story

    I could go for about 15 of these. Marshmallows on cookies are amazing!

  • Zoe

    Love this different way of enjoying hot chocolate and marshmallow! Nice!

  • Baking Serendipity

    I made hot chocolate cookies around Christmas time and they were a serious hit. Homemade marshmallows would have taken them seriously over the top. I love this!

  • meri

    the only kind of chocolate cookie I’ve had before is a chocolate crinkle cookie- these looks so good!

  • Christine

    Great idea! Love it. Will have to try this.

  • Medeja

    They look tempting 🙂 I don’t think I would be able to resist

  • Joanne

    My friend Cate actually made these this past weekend when i was over at her house…SO GOOD. And most probably better with homemade marshmallows!

  • Cait’s Plate

    Oh heck yes. This is such a good idea! Chocolate chip is usually always my go-to but I love a good oatmeal raisin too.

  • Sabiha Hetavkar

    The cookies look delicious…

  • Junia Kim

    gina, these cookies look delicious with the marshmellows! hahhaa i read your quote like this in my head before finishing the sentence:
    “I can review cookbooks for a hobby. And eat warm cookies with my hubby. Life is good.” lol.

  • Lindsay @ Fuel My Family

    oh these looks SO good. I may try these and add some mini chocolate chips in, can never have enough chocolate!

  • JoJo

    I always catch myself starting a sentence with “and” too!
    These look delicious! I love oatmeal cookies 😀
    It’s so neat that we can search for recipes online now, and we are able to compare recipes and read reviews!

  • Karriann Graf

    This is now my favorite cookie. It’s fantastic!

    “Happy Cooking”

  • Dining and Dishing

    oh myyyy those look good. also, the blog that provided you your recipe has a lovely name ;).

    • Simply Life

      haha, agreed- I do love the name…and the cookies 🙂


    Oh my goodness I need to try these out.

  • Kristen@Change of Pace

    I actually made these for Christmas last year. They are amazing and so perfectly chocolatey 🙂

  • Mom

    You’re funny! Oooh, these look amazingly fun!! I’m really starting to enjoy cookies that include macademian(?) nuts!! Chocolate can never loose though!!!

  • Erin

    My fave has got to be oatmeal chocolate chip, but only when they’re chewy. Yum!
    Also, I linked to your proposal post on my page; I hope that’s ok! It was just so full on I had to let others see it!

    • Simply Life

      Oh course that’s okay- thanks for letting me know! I’m off to see it now! 🙂

  • Anonymous

    These cookies look divine! Love that you topped them with marshmallows.

  • Amy (Savory Moments)

    These are genius! I’ve never seen them before! I don’t know if I could pick a favorite cookie…. any with chocolate are always good!
