Victory cookie number two for my Bills – chocolate snowball cookies. An easy cookie to make and everyone will love them!
Remember to scoop your flour, baking cocoa and powdered sugar from your respective containers into your measuring cups. If you pour directly into your measuring cups, the flour, cocoa and powdered sugar get packed in and you wind up with too much.. Which may make for a dry cookie. A grave sin, if there ever was one. Also preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes so it cycles to the right temp for baking.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 /2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup baking cocoa
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips
Directions – cream butter and powdered sugar. Blend in baking cocoa and vanilla. Fold in flour. Mix in chips. Scoop out 2 tbs of dough. Roll into balls, flatten slightly. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper. These don’t spread,so you can place rows of 3 on each prepared sheet. I got 9 or 12 on each, depending on the size of cookie sheet used. Sprinkle hot cookies with powdered sugar. Cool completely. Sprinkle with more powdered sugar. Store in covered container.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Remember to be kind. Life has been pretty hard for so many the last year and a half. The kindness you show someone may be what they need on that day.
Ooooooh. . .and I have ALL the ingredients on hand, including soft butter! It’s supposed to snow here tomorrow, for the first time this winter, so making these seems very appropriate. (Also, I just heard that the Niners’s Jimmy Garoppolo has a chip fracture and a torn UCL in his throwing hand thumb, so baking something delicious should help with the anguish – mine, not his. *sigh*)
You will love these cookies, Peg! I am sorry about the handsome Jimmy G!
