Sometimes, we just crave something simple. Yesterday we were craving a little chocolate in a simple cookie so we decided to give these chocolate sugar cookies and chance and they were wonderful! These cookies were perfect with a nice hot cup of black coffee. The best part of these cookies though is that they’re simple to make and they aren’t over powering. They’re soft, sweet and delicious without being overbearing. You should indulge on these cookies the next time an afternoon chocolate craving hits. Enjoy!

  • 2 cups plus 2 table­spoons all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tea­spoon bak­ing soda
  • ¾ tea­spoon salt
  • 2 ½ sticks unsalted but­ter, room temperature
  • 2 cups sugar, plus more for rolling (1/2 cup)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tea­spoons vanilla

Chocolate Sugar Cookies Recipe

  1. Pre­heat the oven to 350. Line 3 half sheet pans with parch­ment paper. Put ½ cup sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Whisk the flour, cocoa pow­der, bak­ing soda, and salt together in a medium bowl.
  3. Using a stand­ing mixer, cream the but­ter and 2 cups sugar together until light and fluffy, 3–5 min­utes. Add the eggs and vanilla, and beat to com­bine. Add the flour mix­ture and mix on low until com­pletely combined.
  4. Shape the cookie dough into 24 balls, and roll each ball in the set-aside sugar. Place cook­ies on the pre­pared sheet pans (8 can fit on each) and bake for 11–13 min­utes, until the edges have set and the cen­ters are puffed and start­ing to crackle. Remove from the oven and move the pan to a wire rack, let­ting the cook­ies cool.
