I’m always looking for a good cookie recipe. The other day I was wanting to make cookies, and was sitting in my pantry looking around, and we have SO much hot chocolate mix, so I thought Hmm. I found this recipe, and loved it! They are truly delicious! I used milk chocolate hot cocoa mix for these, so they are not super chocolatey. You could really get creative with these and try different flavors of mix.
1 and 1/4 cups butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 1/4 cups flour
4 packages (or 3/4 cups) hot cocoa mix with the little mallow bits (I used Stephens)
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350°F. 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. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour, up to 24 hours.
Drop 2 tablespoons dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 5 minutes; remove to wire racks and cool.
