Hot Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Ok, where is time going?! I cannot believe we are already pass Christmas and approaching New Year’s Eve!

In Spain we have this tradition on New Year’s Day in which we have hot chocolate with churros for breakfast, and while I couldn’t make hot chocolate churro cookies – would that be a thing? – I thought I’d pay homage to my culture by making some hot chocolate brownie cookies.

What’s in these cookies?

These cookies are super easy to make, they are made with normal cookie ingredients plus cocoa powder, A LOT of delicious chocolate and marshmallows. I personally love when you pull a cookie and the chocolate almost melts in your hands and the marshmallows stretch, literally mouth watering as we speak!

Anyhow, it’s time for me to go back to my Christmas sweets, I hope you’ve all had a great Christmas and are getting ready for a wonderful new year!!!

Hot Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 95 gr of flour
  • 2 tbsp of cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 225 gr of melted dark chocolate
  • 57 gr of unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • A pinch of salt
  • 100 gr of granulated sugar
  • 90 gr of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 80 gr of dark chocolate chunks
  • 30 gr of mini marshmallows

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven at 170 degrees celsius.
  2. Melt the butter and the chocolate together. You can do that either on the microwave or using a double boiler putting a bowl over simmering water (don’t allow the water to touch the bowl). Leave aside to slightly cool down.
  3. In a bowl, mix the flour, the coca powder and the baking powder. Sieve the cocoa powder and the flour to avoid any lumps. Set aside.
  4. In a bigger bowl, combine the eggs, the sugar and the vanilla extract. Once well combined, add the melted chocolate and butter and mix again.
  5. With a spatula, fold in the flour, cocoa and baking powder.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chunks and marshmallows. Let the cookie dough rest for around 3 minutes at room temperature.
  7. Bake the cookies in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Let them chill on the tray for 10 minutes and enjoy!

Important: if you can’t cook all the cookies at once, make sure you scoop all the cookies and don’t wait until the first batch is cooked, the chocolate may solidify and it will be hard to scoop afterwards.
