Chocolate Quickies

When we don't have the time to make the more gourmet Black Gold Cookies we make these Chocolate Quickies. As the name implies, they are quick to make and oh so chocolatey! They are also very quick to disappear.

Chocolate Quickies

2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup unsalted butter cut into small pieces
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 TBSP. vanilla
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat butter and sugar for 3 minutes until soft. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl. Beat mixture again for another 2 minutes. With mixer on low slowly add the flour mixture and chocolate chips. Mix until thoroughly combined. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Use your fingers to slightly flatten each dough portion. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on pan for 2 minutes. Remove cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling. Makes about 3 dozen.

Cocoa Signature


  1. Those look delicious. I'm sure they would be even better with a Diet Coke :)


  2. I sort of got the gist of your help on my comment thing- but I don't know what you meant by 'comment box.' Does that mean that I should make it in a pop-up window or embedded below the post? Sorry for having no technical savvy whatsoever!

  3. Okey Dokey! I figured it out! Thanks for all of the help!!! :)

  4. These look wonderful, thanks for the recipe!

  5. My friend Becca found this recipe here and makes these all the time - they're terribly, terribly addictive! I'm 35 wks pregnant and they're a MUST HAVE in my house.

  6. Those look SO yummy!!! Going to have to try them for sure!!


Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done. ☺ There, don't you feel better?

Please leave a comment! I enjoy hearing your thoughts, whether you agree with me or not. If we all agreed on everything how boring would that be? Worse than eating white chocolate, because it's fake. So be real, be yourself.
