Frame Happy Hoop Decor in Kimberbell’s exclusive 3 1/2″ Bamboo Hoops and give with a plate of freshly-baked Hot Chocolate Cookies!
Made with hot cocoa mix, Hot Chocolate Cookies are gourmet in taste but simple to make. (I’ve been told by more than one person that they are “the best cookie I’ve ever had.”) Enjoy with a cold glass of milk!
Hot Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 sticks salted butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
2 whole large eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
4 (1 oz) pkgs. hot chocolate mix (NOT sugar free)
1 tsp. salt
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 cup each: white chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, and semi-sweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In large mixing bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla and mix thoroughly.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, hot chocolate mix, salt, and baking soda. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture in 3-4 parts, making sure all is incorporated. Fold in chips. Chill dough for an hour or so. Using a 1/4 measuring cup, scoop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.
