Cookies are in season right now, and these Skinny Hot Cocoa Cookies are where it’s at! Their a cocoa flavored chocolate cookie base that’s loaded up with plenty of white chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, and YES even marshmallows. It’s basically like eating a mug of hot cocoa… if you eat them warm and fresh out of the oven especially!
Even with the naughty bits that are in here, these cookies are sill just over 100 calories each. And what’s better, is that they are actually pretty easy to make! Sometimes cookies can be overly complicated and involved. Not these baddies.
These bake up nice and crisp on the outside and chewy-gooey on the inside. Just the way that a good cookie should be, in my opinion.Every bite seems to have it’s own texture and taste going on too. It’s good stuff. Let me just tell you…
I truly think these are some of my most FAVORITE holiday inspired cookies so far. And that’s saying a lot. Because around here… we’re pretty big cookie fans.
I’m planning on taking the vast majority of these to my little girls’ class tomorrow for her Christmas party at school. So, ya’ll better act surprised. You know who you are! That’s another great thing about this recipe. It makes a LOT of cookies.
Plenty for you and others. Perfect for gifting and sharing.
