Delicious cookies made with instant hot chocolate drink mix and chocolate chip morsels.

I love incorporating ingredients into cookies that aren’t that common. The other day I was craving double chocolate chip cookies – just like my Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Cookies. Unfortunately, I did not have any cocoa powder. Rather than scratching baking all together, I improvised and made my cookies using powdered hot chocolate mix! I’m here to tell you, they were super good and that you should give this recipe a try!

    I made these cookies the first time I saw the recipe on your blog and they are scrumptious! They are, however, the flattest cookies I have ever made … Where did I go wrong? They spread so much I actually had one big cookie. Lol

    1. Oh no! I’m sorry! I have no idea what went wrong! Did you use melted butter? Or possibly overmix the dough? Maybe try them again! lol
