During my “clean eating” days, one of the very first baked treats I ever made was a double chocolate chip cookie made entirely of all things good and healthy for you.  The base recipe was already pretty perfect & delicious if you ask me, but I figured I would revisit it and see what I could do to jazz it up and make it extra fun!   Now that I’m a much more flexible eater compared to back then (I no longer ban ANY foods or food groups from my diet), there are SO many more ingredients I can incorporate here and there or wherever I choose simply because I want to.  Remember, mainly nutrient dense and “healthy” WITH a touch of fun… keeps life, dieting, and eating much more pleasurable AND sustainable!!!  No need to ban everything that once made your heart and tummy happy right?  80/20 or 85/15 or 90/10… I’m even be happy with 95/5 in my life.

Anyways, one of those off limit foods I had for myself back in the day was marshmallows!  I mean all that sugar and all those carbs?  Surely I can’t put those in my body without some kind of fear (gaining weight, feeding a sugar addiction, GMO’s, being processed, etc. etc. etc. blah blah blah).  Well, I couldn’t back then, but now?  Please hand over the marshmallows… and the chocolate… and all of the food please!  I will take all of it (in moderation of course) and enjoy it!  Chocolate and marshmallows always go brilliantly together, why not in a cookie as well?  Also, as an ode to my nephew who got me hooked on cinnamon in my hot cocoa, a little hint of spice would blend right in!

And thus, my “Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles” were born…

I could have stopped with just adding a few marshmallows on top or in the cookie dough, but an extra dose of chocolate was calling my name… this Emmy’s chocolate sauce is SO rich an decadent (and FYI… it’s vegan, raw, gluten free, and contains only FOUR ingredients)!  Addictive and perfect….

A few marshmallows, chocolate sauce, a little sprinkle of cinnamon and a dusting of cacao powder?  It’s magical.
