No bake hot chocolate mix cookies

Share this post or pin it for later!

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!

And while I’m not a huge baker (making a pie crust really intimidates me!), I definitely think I’d like to try my hand at some pasties. I think I’d feel like I’m competing on the Great British Baking Show when making them!

My grnadma use to make these for me every month!! She passed 3 years ago and I've been wanting to make them but had no cocoa powder at all. I'm so glad I found this recipe for using hot chocolate instead!! Also do I have to use salt?? I didn't in this because I used salted butter and my hot chocolate is dark chocolate with some salt in it... I hope mine turn out ok!!

I love these cookies. I was looking to change them up just slightly. I began experimenting with different things and ran across something that opened up many varieties of flavor. I decided to substitute cold stone creamery flavored liquid coffee creamer for the milk! It was wonderful! My favorite. I have also added just a little bit of instant coffee with a little more peanut butter. Wanted to share this with you, and praise your recipe!Thank you!
