Pinterest Food Challenge: Hot Chocolate Cookies

Just last weekend one of the blogs I regularly read, This Vintage Grove posted a recipe for hot chocolate cookies, and I immediately pinned it. And then I immediately baked it because they sounded so delicious I just couldn’t wait.

Lately I’ve been cooking something I pinned once a week, but my goal has always just been once a month. Feel free to join me in putting our pins to use!

To make hot chocolate cookies you will need:

  • 1/2 cup shortening (I wouldn’t recommend substituting this, you need the texture of it)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons hot chocolate mix (buy a marshmallow free mix!)
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

To make:

  • Use a hand mixer to stir together shortening, softened butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, combine baking powder, baking soda, salt, flour and hot chocolate powder. Add to the butter/sugar mixture and combine.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Chill dough in the refrigerator for at least an hour
  • After your dough has chilled, preheat oven to 350* and drop by rounded tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet
  • Bake for 8 minutes or until set up but the centers are still soft.
I recommend if you don't eat them straight out of the oven, heat them up in the microwave for a few seconds. It makes them extra amazing!
