Recipe of the Week: Chocolate Cookies

Dieters, look away! (Just kidding!) Since Valentine’s Day is this week, I just had to post something sweet and chocolately. Over the weekend I tried out this new recipe for Chocolate Cookies, which definitely fits the bill! Bet you can’t eat just a dozen!

Recipe for Chocolate Cookies:

1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk

Directions: Beat butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Add flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt alternately with milk, beating until well blended. Cover and chill for an hour or until dough is firm. Shape into 1-inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes

    mmmm, I’m going to make them now and link it to you when I take pictures of my cookies and blog about it 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  22. Jerri - Simply Sweet Home says

    Thanks everyone! When I get a lot of comments it is very difficult to reply to to you individuallly, but I do try to visit all of your blogs. And I’ll try to pick out a few indiviudals to reply to here.

    Sarah – I love the idea of making these these as a sandwich with marshmallow fluff. Yum!

    Dayfamilyof4 – Thanks, I would greatly appreciate the link!

    Lisa – That’s funny; I’ll have to share that with my husband. He can keep that in mind when he’s trying to stick to his diet. (Somehow I don’t think he’ll find it as funny though.)

    BarbaraLee – My husband says the same thing to me whenever I start talking about the latest recipe I’ve found. And honestly, I think if I were trying to lose weight, it would be impossible to go to some of these food blogs! (luckily I’m not on a diet)

    NateandJakesMom – How funny! Maybe I also should have warned everybody not to go to the grocery store either. They’ve got candy and stuff everywhere you look!

  23. A happy heart at home says

    These look great! Thanks for the recipe.
