These cookies are ooey, gooey, chewy, chocolate cookies with ribbons of marshmallow and puddles of chocolate chips. Like a mug of hot chocolate in cookie form.
Hot Chocolate Cookies
- 1 cup (200 grams) brown sugar
- 1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated sugar
- 10 Tbsp (140 grams) grass-fed butter, softened (or, Miyoko’s vegan butter)
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cups (270 grams) almond flour
- 1/2 cup (60 grams) cocoa powder
- 5 Tbsp (40 grams) tapioca flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 200 grams chocolate chips
- 2 cups Marshmallow fluff (or 1 cup mini marshmallows)
- Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Add your dry ingredients to a medium bowl. Using a spoon, or, spatula mix them together.
- In a large bowl, add the softened butter and sugars. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 3-4 minutes, until light and fluffy.
- With the mixer on low, add the eggs and vanilla and mix until fully incorporated.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Put a spoonful of marshmallow fluff on top of the dough and marble it a bit. Using an ice cream scooper, scoop a ball of dough and place it on the cookie sheet. Repeat with all the dough, adding another scoop of marshmallow fluff and marbling as needed. (If using mini marshmallows instead of marshmallow fluff, fold in 1 cup with the chocolate chips.)
- Place the tray of cookie dough in the freezer for 10 minutes; this allows the marshmallow fluff to set and helps prevent it from browning when baking.
- Bake at 350F for 12-13 minutes, until the edges are firm and the middle is just slightly set.
- Remove the cookies from the oven, then bang the cookie sheet on the stove a of couple times (this helps them deflate and get crackly tops).
- Let cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes.
- Move to a cooling rack, or, countertop and cool.
*To make these cookies completely dairy-free, use vegan butter. Miyoko’s Vegan Butter is my favorite dairy-free butter.
