I have been bustling about the house trying to be in the Christmas spirit.  “Joy to the World” is echoing off the walls in my house, The Stockings are hung by the chimney,  the kids are drinking hot cocoa, and I am in the kitchen baking cookies.

I was trying to be unique with my cookie selection this week and sat at the kitchen table thumbing through cookbooks.  Every time I looked up I saw these three chocolate covered noses and grins starring back at me over the top of their coffee mugs of cocoa.  It was an inspiration that I couldn’t ignore.

  1. I imagine these would be mint cocoa if you use the new peppermint marshmallows and be delish!! Thanks for the awesome recipe!


  2. Just made these! They are heavenly. Thank you for the fun and yummy recipe! I will make these for many Christmases to come!


  3. I made these tonight with my 2 year old daughter and they turned out great. I had a thought similar to Pamela’s but thought of replacing some of the vanilla with peppermint extract. If only my husband liked peppermint…


  4. wow these are really delicious … however next time I would cut the choc chips in half . I almost did this time but choose to try the recipe the way it was intended. little too sweet for me with all the chips. they look great also on the christmas table 🙂 thanks for the recipe!


  5. I have regularly been making these for the past 5 years! Thank you for this recipe! It is a regular request, especially for cookie exchanges! So moist and chocolatey!
