I’m not gonna make too much sense today.
My family and I just got back from a weekend stay at Great Wolf Lodge, which is an exercise in humility at it’s very basic level.
Let me start by saying my kids had a fantastic time…
Myself on the other hand…well, I certainly enjoy seeing my kids having fun, but a waterpark person, I am not.
All the half naked wet people walking around bumping into you with their water tubes…yeah…
And can I just mention the stairs? The STAIRSSSSS?
Climbing stairs while wearing a wet bathing suit over and over and overrrrr is probably my new least favorite thing to do.
And can I just say something to people who reserve 40 hundred chairs for their family of 3? Don’t love ya.
And also, leaving an open Capri Sun doesn’t count as reserving a seat. Your Capri Sun doesn’t need to rest it’s weary staircase-climbing legs. You know who does? This girl.
Sorry about the negativity here…I think the chlorine has killed all my patience cells.
In all attempts to regain some sanity, and because it’s still ridiculously cold here in the Northeast, I decided to make some cookies.
Hot Chocolate Cookies.
These are super easy.
Just make a simple cookie dough, and add some hot chocolate mix straight into the batter!
I actually only had hot chocolate mix with mini marshamllows, which is totally fine because you’re gonna add in some Marshmallow Bits at the end.
Then chop up some milk chocolate into chunks. You could also use milk chocolate chips, up to you!
Here’s where you add the Marshmallow Bits. If you can’t find the Bits, I don’t recommend that you use Mini Marshmallows in their place. What you could do is place a few marshmallows on top of the cookies when they are almost done baking so they will melt partially on top…just an idea.
These aren’t overly chocolatey cookies. If you would like to up the chocolate factor here, you could sub in some cocoa powder for the hot chocolate mix.
If you’re feeling crazy you can top these cookies with some Marshmallow Buttercream. It will just send them to a whole new level.
Here are some more Hot Chocolate Recipes that I have done in the past:
