Hot cocoa cookies

These chewy and delciious cookie are made using hot cocoa mix. Who doesn't love hot cocoa? When the same flavors are there in the cookie, It is going to be loved and devoured. This eggless cookie is a perfect cookie to keep for Santa with a glass of milk. These are amazing snacks and edible gifts too!

Hot cocoa mix add to the flavor of the cocokies. The rich chocolate flavor from the hot cocoa to cookie makes a great transition. Plus, the mixes also have a few ingredients like milk powder which add to the creaminess. These make cookies extra delicious. I always have hot cocoa packets on hand as my kids love to have this is in the morning as the weather changes to cold mornings. This makes mornings a breeze and also helps in making some goodies like these cookies. Plus, with added chocolate chips and marshmallows, this is a hot cookie!

This cookie is perfect to have as such, or with hot cocoa, or milk. My kids and their friends gobbled up these as soon as they were out of the oven. With a glass of milk, makes a great snack for kids. This cookie is a perfect combo that it is a great choice to keep these ready for Santa - he too needs tasty hot cocoa (cookies)!

If you love these cookies, then you'd love the Nutella Cookies and Vanilla Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies. The Jam Pinwheel Cookie is a great and versatile one to use with any fruit jam. Santa Hat Red Velvet Mini Cookie Cups, Triple Peppermint Cookies and all of these cookies can make a great cookie board for kids and family fun time during the holidays.
