Tonight Ava, my daughter, and I baked some great chocolate cookies for her to take to her preschool class tomorrow! She is so excited to share the cookies she helped make with all of her friends. These cookies are super sweet and chocolaty, of course Ava and her dad LOVED THEM!! I’m actually quite surprised we have any left for her to take to school tomorrow! 🙂
Adapted from Everyday Food
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled
- 1 tablespoon milk
- Confectioners’ sugar, for coating
1. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. With an electric mixer, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg until well combined; mix in cooled chocolate. With mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture; beat in milk until just combined. Flatten dough into a disk; wrap in plastic. Freeze until firm, about 45 minutes.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Pour confectioners’ sugar (about 1/2 cup) into a medium bowl; working in batches, roll balls in sugar two times, letting them sit in sugar between coatings.
3. Place on prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake until cookies have spread and coating is cracked, 12 to 14 minutes; cookies will still be soft to the touch. Cool cookies on a wire rack.
