Hot Chocolate Cookies

Now there are many ways to make chocolate chip cookies ... but have you ever used hot chocolate mix?  I have!  This recipe is unique because it uses hot chocolate mix in the cookie batter.  I used a Nestle hot chocolate mix (I have plenty because on a whim I bought a box of hot chocolate packets for the winter from Costco.  Now I will have hot chocolate for centuries).

The husband seemed to really enjoy these cookies.  Maybe because they taste like you dipped the cookies in hot chocolate.  Or maybe that I just made that up.  Either way they were delicious!

3 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
4 ounces hot chocolate mix (not sugar free)
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1. Whisk flour, cocoa mix, salt, and baking soda together
2. Cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes)
3. add eggs 1 at a time.
4. Add vanilla
5. Add dry ingredients to the wet mixture until combined. DO NOT OVER MIX
6. Fold in the white chocolate chips and semi chocolate chips
7. Chill dough for about 1 hour
8. Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.
9. Use a cookie dough scooper and drop about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
10. Bake them 1 sheet at a time for about 9 minutes. Let cool on the sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to cool completely.

These cookies came out nice and moist.  Oh and full of flavor.  The husband and I gobbled them up right away.  They tasted delicious fresh but most importantly these cookies tasted just as yummy the next day.  So the next time you are about to make some chocolate chip cookies consider this recipe.  It will not let you down.
