Hot Cocoa Cookies with Marshmallows

I love to bake and one of my very favorite memories of Christmas when I was little was of my Mom baking cookies.  My earliest memory is when I was a Brownie {first step before being a Girl Scout} and my mom had the entire troop over to our house where we all baked cookies for Christmas and decorated coffee cans to hold the cookies.  That memory still puts a smile on my face!

When I bake now as a mom I like to let the kids help as much as possible by adding sprinkles, marshmallows, sugars, etc., or rolling the cookies into balls and putting them on the cookie sheets. It’s such a nice time to talk and laugh and build memories for them to smile at in the future.

We have a thing in our house for Hot Cocoa {especially with marshmallows and peppermint for some of us ~ME!!!}.  These cookies are a family favorite because they taste just like a cup of Hot Cocoa  and are soft, chewy and moist!  This recipe is easy to make and once mixed up, you can keep it in the refrigerator for up to a week and make a fresh batch whenever you need {or want} one.  

Whether it’s a personalized card or cookies right out of the oven, I love sharing the warmth of the holiday season with my family, friends and, of course, my readers!
