Hot Chocolate and Marshmallow Thumbprint Cookies

Hot Chocolate is one of my favorite things to enjoy on cold winter nights! Looking for a snack to go right along with it or your morning coffee? You’ve got to try these Hot Chocolate and Marshmallow Thumbprint Cookies!


They have a rich, chocolate flavor.  And we all know hot chocolate is not complete without marshmallows or in this case marshmallow cream! I’d argue it’s even better than marshmallows as it will stay soft for a few days or while sitting out on cookie trays. A sweet dollop of marshmallow frosting completes the cookie!

Word on the street is that even Santa can’t resist these cookies so be sure to leave him one (Or three!).
