finished Hot Cocoa Mug CookiesThese mug shaped cookies can hold your beverage before you eat them up! Milk, hot cocoa, coffee, whatever you crave. Wintertime brings us plenty of hot cocoa mix and candy canes. Why not turn them into these adorable cookies? These are definite crowd pleasers, and super scrumptious!

Because these are crisp cookies, it's rather helpful to have a silicone muffin tray as opposed to a tin one, so they don't crack when removing them. A tin one will still work, just be careful popping the cookies out.

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cup hot cocoa mix (regular sweetened version)

  9. In about 4 segments, add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients.
  10. add cocoa to mix
     
  11. This will take some time to mix as the dough will be very thick. Keep at it until it's consistent.

  17. Gently form little lips to the mug tops and slice off any excess so they are all even. Pop in oven for about 14 minutes.

  19. While the mugs are baking, lets make their handles. Gently saw off the U sections to all the candy canes using a serrated knife in a slow sawing motion. Sometimes these break in all the wrong places, so be sure to have extra handy. Take off all the wrapping.

  21. Bring some water to a simmer in a saucepan and place bowl on top to act as a double boiler. Pour in chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Dunk the candy can U's into the chocolate and allow excess to drip off. (If you'd like to melt the chocolate in the microwave, use a microwave-safe bowl and melt the chocolate at 30 second increments, stirring each time, until silky smooth.)

  25. Remove the cookies from the oven. You will see the centers will have puffed up a bit, so press the centers in again with the shot glass until flattened.

  27. Pop the cookies back in the oven and shut off the heat. This will finish off the cookies to have a nice crisp top and evenly baked bottom. Remove them after about 7 minutes. You may have to shot glass the bottoms one last time if they puffed again. Now allow them to cool, then pop them out.
  28. bake Mug Cookies again
     
  29. Add a dab of cookie icing to the inside lip of a mug, then hook a handle onto it. It will stay in place, but it's probably best you drink out of these by holding the base. ;) If you have any gaps at the bottom of the handle, dab on some melted chocolate to fill them in.

  31. Fill with hot cocoa, milk, or coffee, if you desire. These cookies are sturdy, so you can drink out of them multiple times. Alternatively, you can just fill them with candies or marshmallows. Yum!

  33. Top with marshmallows. To make them stick together nicely, and to fill any air gaps between them for a nice consistency, pipe in some cookie icing.

  35. I added some cookie icing to the sides of the mugs to look like melted marshmallow was oozing out. :)
