The other day, I heard about these Hot Cocoa cookies, so I had to try them out. I used dark hot chocolate mix, a bag of dark chocolate and mint chips and chopped up a leftover dark chocolate bar. The recipe says to chill the dough, so I did, but my cookie dough balls pretty much stayed in a ball form, they didn't flatten out like theirs, so maybe skip chilling and they'll flatten out? Anyways these are really yummy Christmas cookies!

Cream butter and sugars until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. In a separate bowl, combine flour, hot chocolate mix, salt and baking soda. Add to wet ingredients in 3 to 4 parts, making sure all is incorporated. Fold in chips. Chill the dough for an hour or so.
