A luscious, homemade marshmallow fluff sandwiches between two soft, chocolaty cookies will be the hit of any Christmas cookie tray. Delicious with a big mug of hot chocolate! A little more involved than your average cookie and well worth the extra effort. Enjoy these easy homemade cookies!
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
Do you love the snow? I do!! Our little town looks like a winter wonderland at the moment and many homes and businesses are lit up beautifully with Christmas lights.
We had a beautiful blanket of fresh snow and one of our boys, Austin ,went outside to shovel the deck in the morning and came in and announced 'it's packing snow'!! I love that he's 14 and still wants to build a snowman 🙂
He didn't have to ask me twice! We had a great time putting a snowman together and we've managed to keep our lab, Zoe from stealing his arms!! She absolutely loves sticks and I'm sure when she realizes that the stick arms are there they will disappear!
We spent some time at the bird feeder and were lucky enough to have little chickadees feeding from our hands. I love watching the birds and I've mentioned before that my computer and kitchen window both offer perfect views of the bird feeders 🙂
Our birds have eaten through ten of the small birdseed ornaments that I made a week ago! I'm making another batch of birdseed ornaments today and will photograph with the recipe. They're cute and easy and the birds loved them!!
Let's make these Hot Chocolate Cookies!
There are two main parts to making these cookies. The chocolate cookies and the marshmallow fluff. I've included the recipe card for homemade marshmallow fluff, however I will not judge if you buy it in the grocery store. :). The recipe is straightforward and as long as you have a candy thermometer you will end up with a beautifully delicious few cups of fluff.
The cookies use egg yolks and the fluff uses egg whites so it's the perfect combination!
I will confess that I got carried away (quite a common occurrence) and dipped ALL THE COOKIES in chocolate and topped with sprinkles. YEP. I had my son Troy helping me dip them and I was just having way too much fun and loved having him in the kitchen. So, make sure to dip only HALF the cookies into chocolate!
Hubby said "maybe it was a happy accident". I think he was right! They were quite delicious with both top and bottom dipped in chocolate. 🙂
I hope you will enjoy these cookies as much as we did! Please drop me an email and comment below with a star rating to let me know how they turned out. Happy Baking!
