Vegan Hot Chocolate Cookies






Let’s talk holiday cookies! 


I’m always one for holiday concepts, but many don’t gravitate towards peppermint and chocolate, pumpkin, etc. however, something everyone gravitates towards.. chocolate! The older I get the more I carve a good hot chocolate. Growing up we always enjoyed the packaged hot chocolate. However, you can make an amazing hot chocolate with just a handful of ingredients.

What’s also great? You can replicate that same classic flavor in a cookie, marshmallows included! 

I’ve always thought of doing a hot chocolate cookie. However, there were minimal concepts online and I figured it wasn’t a winning concept. Many also didn’t even incorporate the marshmallows, but just plopped them on top which I found odd. Throwing the marshmallows inside completely elevated the cookies to be everything you imagine and more. 



What’s great about this cookie? Everything! It’s quick, easy, dairy free, requires no sifting of ingredients, no chill time, packs a rich hot chocolate flavor, you can add spices, you can garnish with flake salt,  can be made with just cocoa powder if you can’t find vegan cocoa powder, features stevia sweetened chocolate chips, they are packed with marshmallows, requires just a flax egg, is perfect for the winter, and pairs great with a hot chocolate!
