Hot Cocoa Cookies

Hot cocoa and hot cocoa cookies, the perfect way to warm up after being out in the cold! I found this recipe on the back of the Mallow Bits package and it is originally from Christi at Love from the Oven.

I randomly came across the mallow bits during a trip to Target. So, I know you can find them there! I also used the hot cocoa with the mini marshmallows because that was what I had!

Hot Cocoa Cookies
Start by beating the butter, sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Add eggs and vanilla, mix.
Mix the dry ingredients.
Gradually beat into butter mixture.
Stir in mallow bits and chocolate chips.
Scoop and bake.

1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar

4 packets instant hot cocoa mix (Do not use sugar-free mix)
1-1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup vanilla mallow bits

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and sugars in large bowl with standing mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Combine next 4 ingredients. Gradually beat into butter mixture until blended. Stir in chocolate chips and mallow bits. Drop 2 tablespoons dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheet.
