Christmas Cookies with Cree
Peppermint Hot Cocoa Cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone pad.
Place a sauce pan filled with 2 inches if water over medium heat. Place heat proof bowl over sauce pan, to create a double broiler. Add butter, and both chocolate chips. Stir until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Whisk in eggs and vanilla extract, until full incorporated. Using a rubber spatula, gently stir in the flour and cocoa, just until incorporated. Stir in remaining chips. Drop 1 tablespoon of dough onto baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. (flatten cookie dough, place 2 marshmallows in the center. Cover marshmallows with cookie dough and roll back into a ball.) Slightly press down with finger tips. Roll top of cookie in peppermint candies.
Bake for 9 to 12 minutes, until centers of cookies are still slightly soft.
