This easy recipe for gluten free hot cocoa cookies is the best! These cookies are simple to make and come out chewy and delicious. They use white chocolate chips instead of marshmallows and have a nice hot cocoa flavor.



1/3 cup Granulated Sugar
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Buttermilk
1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 large Egg
2 cups Gluten Free Flour
1/3 cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1 cup White Chocolate Chips


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line your baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In the bowl of your stand mixer blend together the sugar, brown sugar, buttermilk, butter, vanilla and eggs.

Then add the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt. Blend the cookies until all the ingredients are combined. Then add your white chocolate chips and blend just until they are mixed in.

I like to use a cookie scoop, but you could also use a tablespoon to place the dough on cookie sheets. You will want to press the cookies lightly with the palm of your hand because they don't spread a lot on their own.

Bake the cookies at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

Moving the cookies to a cooling rack and let them cool completely before storing them in an air tight container.

This recipe makes 28 cookies.
