Hot Chocolate-Marshmallow Cookies

1 box yellow cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 cup Chocolate Flavored Hazelnut Spread
3 Tbsp. baking cocoa
3/4 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix together everything but the marshmallows.  Shape into 1" balls.  Place 2 mini marshmallows into each ball covering them completely.  Place balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake 12 - 14 minutes.  Cookies will spread out, crack and the marshmallows will seep out. 

Comment:  This is yet another cookie made with a cake mix.  I actually found this recipe on the Pillsbury site and it used a roll of their chocolate chip cookie mix.  It only made about a dozen so I decided to make the change to the cake mix adding the eggs and oil.  I also added the chocolate chips since that is the flavor they used.  The other ingredients are the same.  I was a bit taken back by the chili powder and almost decided to leave it out but thought what the heck.  I'm glad I didn't.  I really believe that the combination between it and the cinnamon are what give these cookies the real hot chocolate taste.  I'm not a chocolate lover but did taste of these and they are good and none of my food testers declined trying them.
