Hot Cocoa Cookies

  • Author: Streusel
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 12 minutes + 10 minute cool time
  • Total Time: 27 minutes
  • Yield: 9 large cookies 1x


1 c. hot cocoa mix (I used Starbuck’s hot cocoa with marshmallows mix)

1 c. sugar

1 t. cinnamon

3/4 c. melted butter (unsalted)

1 egg

1 t. almond extract

1 c. all-purpose flour

1/2 t. baking powder

3/4 t. salt


  1. Pre-heat the oven the 350 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. Prepare two baking sheets with silicon mats or parchment paper
  3. In one large bowl combine the cocoa mix, sugar, cinnamon and butter and mix with a wooden spoon until well combined.
  4. Add in the egg and extract and mix until well combine again.
  5. Add in the flour, baking powder and salt and mix just until combined.
  6. With a 1/4 c. scoop, scoop dough onto baking sheet with 2 inches of space around each cookie.  I scooped 6 cookies onto one sheet and 3 onto the other.  Lightly press the dough down with your hand to flatten slightly.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes.  Remove from the oven and leave the cookies on the sheet for another 10 minutes and then remove cookies from the sheet to a cooling rack.
  8. Serve warm, the marshmallows will still be gooey!
