3 Comments

Well, I am almost finished baking ~ I just have a couple of things to make that I can’t make ahead so I’ll do that tomorrow and cookie trays go out on Tuesday ~ YAY!

If you are a chocoholic, you need to try these cookies ~ they are VERY chocolatey but really good.

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

4  (1 ounce)  squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
6 tbsps butter
3 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tsps vanilla
1/2 cup flour
2 tbsps unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

In a microwave, melt unsweetened chocolate, 1 cup of the choclate chips and the butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, whip the eggs and sugar until thick and pale, about 2 minutes. Stir in the vanilla and chocolate mixture until well mixed.

Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt and gradually stir into the chocolate mixture. Fold in 1 cup of chocolate chips.

Cover dough and chill for at least an hour or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350º. Roll chilled dough into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets 2 inches apart ~ I lined mine with parchment paper.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 36 cookies.
