Hot Chocolate Cookies

Hot Chocolate Cookies It’s snowing!

No wind, no cold, just snow – lots and lots of snow!

When I see snow – I think of cross country skiing – and cross country skiing makes me cold – and when I’m cold I think of hot chocolate.

And when I think of hot chocolate I get hungry for cookies!

Sigh.

Those New Year’s resolutions lasted a long time didn’t they? ๐Ÿ™‚

These were a new cookie for us this year – and a big hit whenever we shared them!

I won’t even tell you how many Aunt Julie and I ate when she was here – nope, not gonna do it. You wouldn’t believe me anyway.

These delectable little gems actually have hot chocolate mix right in the batter – along with lots of butter and 3 kinds of chocolate chips.ย  Yes – 3! It makes me almost giddy just thinking about it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hot Chocolate Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter – at room temperature
1 cup white sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 1/4 cups flour
4 – 1 oz packets of hot chocolate mix (or 1/2 cup) Do not use sugar-free!
1 – 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and sugars until smooth. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until combined.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, hot chocolate mix, salt and baking soda. Add to wet ingredients slowly, making sure it is all incorporated.

Fold in all 3 kinds of chocolate chips.

Chill the dough for about an hour, then using a 1/4 cup scoop, place the dough on a greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 9-11 minutes. Let the cookies cool slightly before removing from the pans. Cool on wire racks or eat them hot and gooey from the oven!

Enjoy!
