Hot Cocoa Cookies

I found the original recipe for these tasty cookies from The Girl Who Ate Everything's 12 days of Cookies and it was love at first sight.  They are just so cute with all those gooey marshmallows on top and so delicious stuffed with all those chocolate chips. 

I don't know why my pictures always look so yellowed, but those are white marshmallow all over these delicious cookies.
Here is my version of Hot Cocoa Cookies

Preheat oven to 350*.
1 c. butter, softened.
1 c. sugar
2/3 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
Cream all these ingredients together.  Then add:
1 small box of instant milk chocolate pudding mix
3 packages of hot cocoa mix
Just pour the powder right into your sugar and egg mixture.
3 c. flour (more or less depending on the humidity in your kitchen.  Mine is usually around 30% so adjust accordingly.)
1 tsp. salt
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 c. each white, milk and semi sweet chips
 mini marshmallows, if desired.
Mix in dry ingredients and chips.  Spoon onto lightly greased baking sheet and cook for 8-10 minutes.  If you are adding marshmallows, press them into the cookies about a minute before they are finished cooking.  Out them back in the oven and allow to bake until the marshmallows have puffed up.  Allow baked cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before placing on a wire rack to cool completely.
