A few weeks back I came across a recipe that looked divine on one of the foodie blogs I follow. However use usual when I went to retrieve the recipe I lost track of which blog it came from. Google here I come and found the recipe her post originated from. You can find the original recipe HERE.
2 sticks Salted Butter- At Room Temperature
1 cup White Granulated Sugar
⅔ cups Packed Light Brown Sugar
2 whole Large Eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 ¼ cups All-purpose Flour
4 packages (1 Oz. Packets, NOT Sugar-free) or 1/2 cup Hot Chocolate Mix
1 ¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
1 cup Each White, Milk, And Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
Mini marshmallows, for garnish
Heat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugars until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. In a separate bowl, combine flour, hot chocolate mix, salt and baking soda. Add to wet ingredients in 3 to 4 parts, making sure all is incorporated. Fold in chips. Chill the dough for an hour or so.
Use a 1/4 cup as a scoop to scoop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper (I used an ice cream scoop). Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are golden brown. If you are adding mini marshmallows, I pressed them into the cookies about a minute before I was ready to take them out of the oven. Wait until they puff slightly, and remove the tray to a cooling rack. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.
These cookies were a huge hit during Christmas and I even saved and froze some for my New Years Eve get together with friends. So simple and so decedent, a definite must have for the holidays with an ice cold glass of milk!
