If you believe that chocolate makes the world go round then we can be friends. There is not much that chocolate cannot solve or heal or fix. Maybe I should send some to Washington.
I found this recipe in my Uncle Willy’s files (do you see a trend here?). The kids gravitated towards the name. The batter is really thick like brownies and can be molded into little balls before baking if you like a perfect little round cookie. And life is pretty close to perfect when you eat chocolate so, but do as you please. They taste good either way.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 7 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup plain yogurt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine flour, soda and salt. Melt butter in a large saucepan and remove from heat. In a mixing bowl, place the cocoa powder and sugars, pour melted butter in, and mix. Add yogurt and vanilla, continue mixing to combine. Add flour mixture and combine until fully incorporated.
Spoon mixture onto prepared cookie sheets (I made cookies using both a ½ tablespoon and a 1 tablespoon size spoon). Bake for 8 to 10 minutes (for a ½ T size cookie – bake for longer if you make a larger cookie). Cool on sheets for 2 minutes or until firm. Remove and cool completely on wire racks. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
