Mint Truffle Hot Chocolate Cookies

The other day while grocery shopping I was picking up some more Mint Hot Chocolate, my new favorite, when I spotted something new.  You know the so delicious, cute, teeny tiny little marshmallows that come in some hot chocolate, but of course not in my favorite mint hot chocolate.  There was a whole container filled with just marshmallow bits.  Are these new, or have I just been missing out all this time?  Needless to say they made their way into my cart.  I started thinking that these marshmallow bits would be great in cookies or brownies too, so I decided to see if I could figure out a way to turn my favorite hot chocolate into a cookie. These cookies turned out Awesome.  They seriously taste just like mint hot chocolate, but in cookie form.  Thanks to 3 secret ingredients:  mint hot chocolate mix, Andes mint chips for a little extra mint and chocolate flavor and Marshmallow Bits.

 Mint Truffle Hot Chocolate Cookies

 1 Cup Butter
2/3 Cup Sugar
2/3 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Mint Hot Chocolate Mix (dry)
3 Cups Flour
1 Cup Marshmallow Bits
1 Cup Andes Mint Baking Chips

Cream the butter and sugars together.  Add the eggs and vanilla, mix well.  Add dry ingredients and mix just until combined.  Stir in the marshmallow bits and mint chips.  Cover and chill the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.  Roll into heaping tablespoon size balls.  If you want the marshmallow to stick out poke a few more into the top of each dough ball.  Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes.  Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes, transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.  Enjoy!
