Now who doesn't love a big old mug of hot chocolate?? Especially during the holidays. I know I do and have already had my fair share this holiday season.
There's just something about a warm, creamy, chocolately drink, with a handful of floating marshmallows, that gives me pure comfort.
And what's better than a hot chocolate drink? Hot chocolate in cookie form. And while these cookies don't actually have any hot chocolate mix, (I'm still dying to try ones that do), they sure taste like it.
Better yet, they're easy as pie with only 5 ingredients and are perfectly moist, dense and delicious.
Be careful not to eat four like I did right out of the oven. Or do, because then they technically are HOT Chocolate Cookies. ;) ;) And one of the most decadent cookies you will ever try.

Hot Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies
Yields: 24 Cookies
1 (18.9 oz.) Devil's Food cake mix (I prefer Pilsbury)
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs
1/2 cup Mallow Bits
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips (Ghirardelli or Guitard are amazing)

1. Heat oven to 375°F.
2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, oil and eggs; stir with spoon until thoroughly moistened. (Use hands if needed; dough will be very thick.) Stir in Mallow Bits and chocolate chips until combined.
3. Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls or use a cookie scoop; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. With bottom of glass dipped in flour, flatten to 1/4-inch thickness.
4. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are firm. Be careful not to burn. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets.
