Anyone who knows me, knows that I love a good hot cocoa! I look forward to it being "cold" so that I can partake. So when I saw these wonderful things call Kraft Jet-Puffed Mallow Bites at the store yesterday, my head started spinning that they would be great in a cookie! (I had these last year and would snack on them often. I also LOVE marshmallows!) Now tonight as I was reading the package, there is a recipe on the bottle (didn't see it). But it is slightly different then mine but
I was proud of myself for the idea and how similar it was to theirs.
Recipe: Hot Cocoa Chocolate Cookies
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
3 eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 1/4 cup flour
4 packages of instant hot cocoa
1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt (if you use salted butter omit this)
About 3/4 cup of Kraft Jet-Puffed Mallow Bites
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Using a hand mixer or standing mixer, cream together butter and both types of sugar. Once those have come together, add one egg at a time until incorporated. Add vanilla.
- In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, hot cocoa, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Add this mixture to the sugar mixture slowly until all it is all incorporated.
- Fold in the Jet-Puffed Mallow Bites. Do not use the mixer because it will break the bites into pieces.
- Place scopes of dough on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 10-13 minutes, until edges begin to get slightly golden brown for a chewy cookie. If you like your cookies crunchy, leave them in for another 2-3 minutes.
P.S. Tomorrow I will have the other cookie I made as well!
