As soon as the weather turns even slightly chilly, my go-to evening sweet fix goes from fro yo to a steaming hot mug of hot cocoa. With a generous handful of mini marshmallows, of course! And there's nothing like curling up and sipping a cup of hot cocoa during the holidays. I love experimenting with different variations -- a dash of peppermint oil, a pinch of cinnamon, a tiny bit of cayenne pepper. Mmm.
But the best variation by far, especially if you're craving something "outside the mug," is hot cocoa in COOKIE FORM. With marshmallow fluff mixed in!!! Ah! How brilliant is that?! Obviously, these amazing cookies are destined to make an appearance in my kitchen and then, the next holiday party I attend. (Oooh, and I bet Santa would like them as well ...)
