Chocolate Snowballs

These are a light, chocolaty cookie. The original recipe calls for rolling in powdered sugar.  We roll them in a mixture of powdered sugar and cocoa powder.  They don’t resemble ‘snowballs’ but they sure are good!

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 oz semi-sweet chocolate, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • powdered sugar
  • cocoa powder

Sift dry ingredients together.  Cream butter with sugar until light.  Beat in melted chocolate, egg, vanilla, and milk.

Mix in dry ingredients a little at a time to make a stiff dough.  Refrigerate overnight.

Roll dough into marble-sized balls and place 2″ apart on ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes.

Cool on wire racks.  Roll in mixture of cocoa powder and powdered sugar.
