Behold, the second Hot Cocoa-themed item of the year (possibly the third if you count the return of the salted caramel hot cocoa).
Tasting and review
The previous appeared in the Hot Cocoa Toaster Pastries but one thing was missing: the marshmallows. Not that the toaster pastries needed any more sugar or sweetness to them. They were pretty good as is. Now, when I saw these, I knew I did not need these in my life.
But every time I've shared these with someone, the reaction tends to run the same, "OMG, get those away from me." They meant this in the best possible way.
You see, the box is big enough for sharing. Thank goodness for that because I could sit and eat this whole tub of cookies. In my household growing up we would have called this "Red Light Food." In other words, self-control goes out the window when they are this good. And for the five people I share this with, they seemed to concur.
I had no problems finding people who were willing to take one. But as much as people liked them, it was easier to leave me with the tub and walk away.
They are built on the same successful premise as the other Dunkers varieties: a crisp cookie that is meant to be dipped in a glass of something. Often they have a chocolate bottom to ensure they stay together.
But what is standout about these is that they are richly chocolatey with the added crunch of mini marshmallow bits. They are sweet but would pair well with milk, tea, coffee, or even a mug of hot cocoa.
Even the soft cookie lover in me felt the need to go back to this tub. While I would love to buy this again, I do have a few more sweet items to work on. But if I didn't have this blog, a corner of my kitchen would be reserved for these cookies.
For $3.99 they're decently sized and decently priced. They are sadly a seasonal find so if you love these then you'll want to grab a few before they are gone for the season.
