Flourless Hot Chocolate Cookies are a rich, fudgy treat fancy enough to serve at a holiday party, but easy enough to whip up anytime chocolate cravings hit.
Gluten-free Chocolate Cookies
They’re crisp on the outside, fudgy and chewy on the inside. A perfect chocolate treat!
I saw these Volcano Cookies and thought all they needed were some tiny marshmallows to make them complete. I adapted the recipe to make them just like my favorite Winter drink, HOT CHOCOLATE, and a new favorite recipe was born!

Are they healthy?
These gluten-free chocolate cookies have no extra oil, or added sugar and only have a little bit of chocolate (and to me that’s totally part of a healthy diet) so I’d say these cookies are better for you health-wise than most. Everything in moderation, right? The flavor is so rich and divine; they really satisfy sweet cravings!
How long do they keep?
Once your cookies have fully cooled, transfer them to an airtight container to keep them fresh. They will keep well at room temperature for 2-3 days, or in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Can you freeze them?
Yes! You can make these cookies ahead of time and freeze them for up to 3 months. They make the perfect treat to give to neighbors, friends, or to have with a cup of coffee in front of the fireplace any old time.
Recipe Notes and Tips
- Mix the ingredients together really well so that they have an even texture throughout.
- Because the hot chocolate cookies contain no flour, they do spread quite a lot, so allow them space on the baking sheet.
- Let them cool completely before storing.
