Three (3) Ingredient Hot Chocolate Cookies
These cookies in particular were just going to be called three ingredient chocolate cookies. However, their texture is so unique they reminded me of a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows in one sweet package.
Surprisingly, mixing cake mix with Cool Whip creates a marshmallow-y, taffy texture. I'm not sure how. I'm sure there's some science behind that. All I know is that's what happens. And, because of this, the texture of the cookie has a little bit of a chewy, melted marshmallow texture even after baking and cooling. They also smell AMAZING when baking. A sweet, chocolate and marshmallow scent fills the air once these babies get cooking. So, voila! Three Ingredient Hot Chocolate Cookies.
Now let's to get the recipe!
Chocolate Cake Mix
1- 8oz tub of Cool Whip
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix all three ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl. You can use an electric mixer or mix by hand. (I mixed by hand. This is where the taffy texture first appears).
Spoon onto a GREASED cookie sheet. (I also put down aluminum foil for easy clean up.)
Bake for 10 - 12 minutes depending on size of cookies. (Mine are large and in charge. So they took 12 minutes.)
Let cool and enjoy!
