What’s Better Than a Cup of Hot Cocoa? This Holiday Hot Cocoa Cookies Recipe!
The holidays are in high gear here at Brit HQ. From festive garlands to yuletide cocktails, we’re getting into the holly jolly spirit in a big way… and it’s not even Thanksgiving! Up next? We’re getting a head start on our holiday baking. Since nothing says winter like a warm cup of hot cocoa, we decided to add a tasty twist to the traditional sugar cookie. Introducing our Hot Cocoa Cookies. It’s time to stock up on your marshmallows, folks. We guarantee one “cup” won’t be enough.
– 1 bag sugar cookie mix
– 1 tablespoon hot cocoa
– 1/3 cup butter, softened
– 1 egg
– 1 9-ounce can chocolate cupcake frosting
– 1 9-ounce can cloud white cupcake frosting
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine cookie mix, hot cocoa, softened butter, and egg. Use a hand mixer to stir together. Roll dough into a ball.
2. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out on a floured surface until 1/4-inch thick. Use a mug or teacup cookie cutter to cut the dough into shapes. Place the cookies onto a greased baking sheet.
3. Bake for 7-8 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.
4. Using the white frosting, pipe a few rosettes across the top of the cookie. Use the chocolate frosting to decorate the rest of the cookie. Top each cookie with a few marshmallows, and sprinkle with hot cocoa. Enjoy!
