Amazing Vegan Hot Chocolate Cookies

Amazing Vegan Hot Chocolate Cookies- a delicious blend of cocoa, marshmallows, and drizzled chocolate. So good, you’ll never guess they’re vegan!

Amazing Vegan Hot Chocolate Cookies

A combination of hot chocolate and a cookie? What could be a better wintertime treat!

Soft, chewy cocoa cookies are topped with mini marshmallows and drizzled chocolate. These cookies take minutes to prepare and they’re so easy to make!

Marshmallows contain gelatin which is an animal by-product, so they’re not vegan (or even vegetarian for that matter). My go-to brand for vegan marshmallows is Dandies. They’re available in most grocery stores and they come in mini and full size. The taste and texture are pretty close to real marshmallows! I use them anytime I need to bake or decorate with marshmallows.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a stand or hand mixer, cream the vegan butter, brown and white sugar. Add the almond milk and vanilla extract and beat again.

In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until combined. Scoop 2 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball. Place on the parchment paper and press down slightly.

Yield: 16 cookies
