These are great little cookies that look very pretty when baked, they are kind of like Chocolate Crinkles.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar for rolling
In a medium bowl, mix together the butter and cocoa until smooth. Beat in the sugar, eggs and vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually blend into the chocolate mixture to form a dough. Cover dough and chill for at least 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and roll the balls in the confectioners' sugar. Place cookies 3 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until the tops of the cookies have cracked. remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.
