Chocolate Snowballs


Heeeeeeeello again! Here is the latest cookie from my cookie challenge: Chocolate Snowballs. It was a pretty simple recipe to make, with just a little planning ahead needed since the dough needs to be made the night before. My husband got to try these cookies and he loved them! These cookies are very chocolate-y and go so well with a nice glass of milk. :) These may be great cookies to leave for Santa, if your family leaves any left that is!
Chocolate Snowballs
Makes ~ 4 dozen cookies

Ingredients:
·         ¾ cup butter, softened at room temperature
·         ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
·         1 egg
·         ¼ cup milk
·         1 tsp vanilla extract
·         2 cups AP flour
·         ½ cup baking cocoa
·         1 tsp baking powder
·         ½ tsp salt
·         ¼ tsp baking soda
·         Confectioner’s sugar, for coating

Directions:
1.    In a medium bowl, sift and combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
2.    In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla; mix well. Gradually add the flour/chocolate mixture to the creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
3.    When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Shape dough into one inch balls; place them two inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until the tops are crackled. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
4.    In a shallow bowl, add the confectioner’s sugar (about 1 cup total, variable). Roll the cookies in the sugar to coat well.
