Hot Chocolate Santa Hat Brownies

30-36 brownie bites


  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup The Cocoa Co. Original Hot Cocoa mix
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tub (10.6oz) Vanilla Cool Whip Frosting, thawed
  • Sprinkles
  • Mini marshmallows


Hot chocolate mix is the star of these brownies. Top them with delicious Cool Whip Frosting for the perfect Santa Hat treat!

In a large mixing bowl, blend the sugar, flour, hot cocoa, cocoa powder, melted butter and eggs together. Mix until completely combined.

Line a 13×9 baking dish with parchment paper. Pour batter into parchment paper. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 22-25 minutes. Remove and cool completely.

Remove brownies from pan by lifting parchment paper. Place on cutting board. Using a 1 1/2 inch circle cookie cutter, cut brownies (save scraps in freezer for trifles!). Top each brownie with a swirl of Cool Whip frosting. I put my frosting in a pastry bag with an open tip and piped it onto each brownie. Immediately sprinkle with red sugar. Top with one mini marshmallow.
Eat immediately or store in refrigerator until ready to serve. Enjoy!
