Hot Cocoa Chex™ Cookies

  • SERVES: 18-20 cookies

  • TOTAL TIME: 1 hour

Like a cozy cup of cocoa in cookie form—marshmallows included!

We've teamed up with our friends at Chex™ cereal for some unique new twists on holiday sweets and treats. Here's a new cookie recipe with a surprise crunchy element.

With winter finally here, nothing screams cozy and comforting like warm, freshly baked cookies. Or a mug of steaming hot cocoa. But why have one when you can have both?! I transformed one of my favorite drinks into a chocolatey cookie, packed with lots of mini marshmallows and Chocolate Chex™ cereal for a combination of soft, melty, and crunchy. The kids will love helping drizzling and decorating with melted white chocolate, and if you want to add sprinkles or something else to make it festive, go for it. Maybe even dip a hot cocoa cookie… into hot cocoa. Mind blown.

The Stir-Anything Wooden Utensil Set
The Stir-Anything Wooden Utensil Set

Grab the slotted spoon to stir and al dente-test pasta, the spatula for slicing and serving quiche and crumbles, and the spoon for everything else. Carved from olive wood that ages beautifully, these utensils also level up a tablescape—use them for serving salad, spicy slaw, and spaghetti. Olive wood has a natural oil finish, for stain resistance, a little shine and a lot of use. Use the flat, spatula-style utensil to divvy and serve quiche, brownies, berry crumbles and other treats best served warm.
