Hot Chocolate Cookies are full of deep chocolate flavor and fluffy marshmallows. The marshmallows melt and become toasty in the oven. Once they cool, they are sticky and almost like a taffy. Which is my favorite part!
I originally came up with this recipe for NuVita CBD. I've been helping them create super yummy vegan desserts for a few months now. I liked this one so much I wanted to share it. The marshmallows are not considered Paleo but you can easily make your own using my recipe for marshmallow fluff and use that instead. You can also leave out the marshmallows all together and enjoy some deep chocolate cookies instead.
how to make hot chocolate cookies
- The first step is to mix together ground flaxseed and water until thick. When flaxseed thickens, it acts like an egg and helps to bind ingredients in the cookie dough.
- The second step is to add the coconut sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla extract.
- To the same bowl, coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, chocolate chips and mini marshmallows are added.
- The last step is to form 12 cookie dough balls and bake until gooey and the marshmallows are toasted.
I love making these cookies with my two ingredient marshmallow fluff but Sweet Apricity makes some super tasty Paleo marshmallows! Check them out here!
