Sweet Tooth

TheHungryRunnerGirl is influencing me to eat sweets galore. Here are some delicious treats added to my life this past weekend. #1: Hot chocolate cookies. HungryRunnerGirl told her readers we had to make them, so make them I did (you can find recipe on the link). YUM! Although they are super rich, so I can’t have so many. The hubby on the other hand would have probably eaten them all if he didn’t have to share with me and my sister.[Update: They actually look at lot better fresh outta the oven… See?]

Recipe:
Hot Chocolate Cookies – Seeded by the Table
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 packages (or 1/2 cup plus 3 Tablespoons) Hot Chocolate Mix (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mat.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then blend in the vanilla.

In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the flour, hot chocolate mix, and baking soda and salt. Slowly add to the wet ingredients and mix just until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Drop dough balls onto the prepared cookie sheets and bake for 7 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven. Working quickly, carefully add about 5 to 7 miniature marshmallows to the top of each cookie, and gently press. Return to the oven and bake an additional 2 to 3 minutes, or until the marshmallows start to puff. Remove from the oven and let cool on the cookie sheets for 10 minutes before removing. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

#2: BJ’s Red Velvet Pazookie. Picture says it all. I’ve had pazookies before, but thank you, G & M, for introducing me to this flavor!image#3: Cocoa Drizzled Kettle Corn. Bought this from Trader Joe’s. Super addicting and tasting, although note to self: I can make this myself! My mom usually gets us kettle corn (tastes exactly the same) from the farmer’s market and I can just drizzle melted chocolate myself. But thank you, TJ’s, for the idea 🙂
