I saw these cookies a few years ago in a magazine, we tried them and loved them. This year after I made them my husband informed me that these were one of his 2 Favorite cookies, and proceeded to eat as much as I would allow. Since I made these to give out to neighbors I kinda had to hide them from him. But in his defense they are REALLY REALLY GOOD!
So while we already made these a couple of times and ate most of them, we have decided to make them for Santa as well because doesn't he deserve the BEST, and they are the BEST!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season and I will report back after Christmas with all the goodies I have eaten and made, here are a couple that you may find some use for.
3/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 ounces mini semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup powdered sugar
In a large bowl mixt together he melted butter, cocoa powder, and sugar. Wisk in the eggs and vanilla extract. In a medium size bowl, stir together the four, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Use a large spoon to slowly add he dry ingredients to the chocolate mixture. Stir in the chips . Refrigerate dough 2 hours.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Form the dough into 1-inch balls, then roll them in confectioners sugar. Bake the cookies on an un-greased cookie sheet for 10 min. Set the sheet on a wire rack for 5 min. then lightly dust the cookies with powdered sugar. Transfer cookies to rack to cool completely. Makes 4 dozen.
Once again these are so good and taste like little truffle cookies, so moist and rich and oh just perfect. Also here is a cute way to give them to a friend.
Put some cute paper on an empty pringles can.
For Steve's Birthday this year I did a Cereal bar party, I also made a couple of breakfast casseroles. This one from Pioneer Woman was INCREDIBLE. It was totally different and so good everyone loved it and it was the first one gone. The secret is the Pita Chips, if you have ever had these you know they rock, if not you are missing out.
This is what I will be making for Christmas Morning, I am already excited for it!
Here is the recipe I used, next time I make it though I will be adding at least 4-6 more eggs. It did not have enough. Just fyi
