The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2011!

This was the most wonderful event for the most wonderful time of the year!!! Julie from The Little Kitchen and Lindsay from Love & Olive Oil created this event & wow!!!!  625 bloggers joined in! Our allergies were taken into account & we all received 3 different cookies & sent out a dozen cookies to three different bloggers. The result?! I could not wait for the mail! LOL IT was very like Christmas. I decided to make... Hot Cocoa with Marshmallows COOKIES!!! So good! I tweaked a Double Chocolate Cookie recipe I've made for ages until it tasted like Hot Cocoa. & in return, got 3 delicious cookies. 

Hot Cocoa with Marshmallows Cookies

  • 1  cup a-p flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet or milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup Fluff

Heat oven to 350° F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, & baking soda; set aside.
Using the paddle attachment of the mixer, combine the room temperature butter, sugar, eggs, & vanilla until smooth.
Gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just combined (do not overmix). Fold in the chocolate chips. Then slowly fold in the marshmallow fluff- just enough so that it is swirled into the mixture.
Drop mounds of the dough (about 1 heaping tablespoon each) 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets.
Bake, rotating the baking sheets halfway through, until firm around the edges , 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
