Gluten-Free Hot Chocolate Cookies

One of my amazing friends hosts a holiday cookie party, and I was looking for inspiration.  I turned to my favorite source, Pinterest, and began searching for holiday cookie recipes.  That’s where I found the winner, Hot Chocolate Cookies!  Unfortunately, the recipes I found were fully gluten-full.  So I turned to some of my favorite cookie recipes for inspiration and made some modifications until I landed on this version of Gluten-Free Hot Chocolate Cookies.  I’m not going to lie, I definitely overcooked the first batch, but the flavor was what I was looing for.  So I went back to the kitchen, tried again, and when baked the right amount, they were perfect!  Give this recipe a try, and let me know what you think. 

-The Gluten-Free Gal’s Guide


  • 2 ¼ cups Gluten-Free Flour (I used Bob’s Redmill One-to-One)
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 c. Butter- softened
  • ¾ c. Sugar
  • ½ c. Brown Sugar- firmly packed
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 2 c. Chocolate Chips
  • 2 c. Gluten-Free Hot Chocolate Mix
  • 2 ¼ c. Mini Marshmallows


  1. Freeze the marshmallows.  This is important so that they don’t melt while baking your cookies. 
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  3. Add the softened butter into your mixing bowl and beat until creamy.  Add the sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract.  Mix at a high speed until creamy and combined. 
  4. Add 2 eggs, and beat after adding each egg. 
  5. Slowly add the flour to the bowl, and mix.  Make sure you start mixing slowly so the flour doesn’t fly everywhere. 
  6. Add the baking soda and salt, and mix until fully combined. 
  7. Add the gluten-free hot chocolate mix and additional egg.  Mix so that they are fully combined. 
  8. Add the chocolate chips and frozen mini marshmallows.  Stir by hand so that they are distributed throughout the batter. 
  9. Line your baking sheets with parchment paper. 
  10. Using a tablespoon, spoon the batter out onto the cookie sheets leaving room for the cookies to expand when they bake. 
  11. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. 
  12. Remove and let cool. 
  13. Serve and enjoy!
