Hot Cocoa Blossoms

I saw this recipe and was intrigued by the Hot Cocoa 3 Musketeers. I found them at Target, so I HAD to try this recipe. I forgot to add the chocolate chips(was doing too many things at once) but we all loved these!


Makes 2 dozen

1-1/4 sticks (10 Tbsp) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups + 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour

2/3 cup homemade hot cocoa mix (or 2 packages Hot Chocolate Mix)

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 + 1/8 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup Marshmallow Bits (you could substitute mini marshmallows)

24 3 Musketeers Hot Cocoa mini candy bars, unwrapped

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Cream together butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. And in eggs and vanilla and blend well. In a separate bowl, mix together dry ingredients, including the hot cocoa mix.
  3. Add the dry ingredients a little at a time to the wet ingredients. Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls and place on prepared cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake for 8-11 minutes. Lightly press a miniature candy bar into the center of each. Allow to cool for approximately five minutes then remove from cookie sheet.
