The other weekend Omied and I were enjoying a quiet Saturday night, cozied up, ready to watch a movie while it was pouring outside. The one thing we were missing? A sugary treat!
The only thing we had on hand were some Healthy Choice fudgsicles in the freezer. Ew. I decided I needed to whip up something sweet ASAP.
I hopped online to find some quick, easy, no-bake cookies that didn’t involve chocolate chips (because we didn’t have any, and I was in no mood to brave the rain).
From start to finish, this hot chocolate mix cookies recipe took me 12 minutes. I modified it a bit (it called for twice as much sugar, which I think would be insanely sweet).
Here’s my one disclaimer: If I had the choice, I’d pick a chocolate chip cookie or these white chocolate raspberry cookies over these any day (or maybe even these M&M sugar cookie bars). But if you’re in a pinch and want to whip up something in a hurry (and you don’t have choc chips on hand) these no bake hot chocolate mix cookies will satisfy a sweet tooth craving and get the job done!
