Hot Chocolate Cookies

hot chocolate cookies (1 of 4)

Hot, Hot! Hey we got it! Hot, Hot! Ooh We Got it! Hot Choc-o-laaate!! That’s hands down my favorite part of the Polar Express movie, such a classic! These cookies are perfect for this time of year.  Make yourself a big mug of hot chocolate, a big batch of these cookies and cozy up on the couch for a Christmas movie marathon! Sounds like the perfect holiday evening to me!! These cookies are chewy and chocolatey and the marshmallow gives it a kind of creamy bite.
