One of my favorite things at Christmas time is homemade hot chocolate with a candy cane and lots of marshmallows. This cookie has the flavor of a perfect cup of cocoa with peppermint and a gooey marshmallow center. They are super easy to make too. I hope you get a chance to try these soon and share with your family and friends around the Christmas Tree.

I love the intense chocolate and mint flavors in this recipe. I highly recommend that you enjoy these while they are warm out of the oven. Chocolaty-minty goodness! The Test Kitchen
