10 Fall Cookies to Enjoy with Your Favorite Hot Chocolate


What can be cozier than spending time curled up next to a beautifully blazing fire with your favorite cup of hot chocolate and some super yummy cookies? While it is easier to buy any cookies in Walmart, homemade versions are a lot healthier and much more affordable.

Just like you, I am also guilty of eating store-bought cookies that claim to be gluten- and sugar-free (but how can I know it?). When I found these ten recipes, though, the situation changed drastically. Hopefully, the following recipes will inspire you to turn on your oven today.

1. Caramel Apple Cookies

The spiced cookies that taste just like our favorite caramel apples will satisfy any sweet tooth. They take around 30 minutes to make and you can store them for a few days. You can find the full recipe here.

2. Pumpkin Chocolate Butterscotch Chip Cookies

I love pumpkin’s versatility and use it in both dinner and dessert recipes. These pumpkin cookies make the perfect treat for the whole family. I used freshly made pumpkin puree in mine, but you can follow the original recipe and use a canned version.

3. Hot Chocolate Cookies

Imagine eating hot chocolate cookies while drinking hot chocolate? If you are a chocolate junkie, you know what I’m talking about. The cookies taste great with green tea as well. Get the full recipe here.

4. Cinnamon Bun Cookies

This is one of the most delicious ways to incorporate cinnamon into your diet. Cinnamon bun cookies do not take too much time and effort to make and they are rather healthy, especially if you skip the sugar and replace it with raw honey. Anyway, get the recipe here.
