Reynolds™ Parchment Paper
1/4
cup sugar
1/4
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
cup butter or margarine
1
tablet Mexican hot chocolate drink mix (from 19-oz package)
1
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
1
egg
1
cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)

  • 2 In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter and hot chocolate tablet over low heat, stirring constantly.

Expert Tips

Place food directly on Reynolds® Parchment Paper and bake as directed. Treats will bake evenly and release from paper with ease. Plus, because you're baking right on the paper, clean-up is a breeze.

This recipe was one of fifteen winners in the 2007 Mix It Up with Betty! Cookie Mix Recipe Contest. More than $10,000 was awarded!

Look for the hot chocolate tablets in the Hispanic section of your supermarket.

Use a #70 or 1-tablespoon spring-loaded ice cream scoop to make quick work of dropping the cookie dough. Using a scoop also ensures cookies will be the same size and will bake the same length of time.
