Description

Fudgy chocolate cookies combine with cherry Andes mints and gooey marshmallows to create the cookie equivalent to a warm, cozy mug of hot chocolate!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 9 Andes Cherry Jubilee mints, cut in half crosswise
  • 9 large marshmallows, cut in half crosswise

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine butter and chocolate chips and stir constantly until they’re combined and just melted. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, combine egg, brown sugar and vanilla and beat on medium speed just until just combined. Add the cooled butter/chocolate mixture and mix on low until just combined.
  3. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt and mix on low until just combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to chill for at least 2 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 325° F. Line a baking sheet with a non-stick silicon mat and use a small cookie scoop (aff link) to place dough onto prepared baking sheet a couple inches apart (they will spread quite a bit). Bake for 10-12 minutes (I found 11 to be perfect).
  5. Promptly remove the cookies from the oven and place one half of an Andes mint on top of each cookie, and then place one half of a marshmallow on top of the mint.
  6. Place the cookies back in oven and bake for another 3-4 minutes. When you remove them, gently press down on the top of the marshmallows just to flatten them ever so slightly. Let cool on pan for about 5 minutes and then move to a wire rack (aff link) to cool completely.

Notes

These can be served at room temperature, or you can do what I do and warm them up in the microwave for a few seconds to let the marshmallow and chocolate mint get a little melty. And maybe even serve them with an actual cup of hot chocolate, if you want to be completely adorable. Enjoy!
