What is it about this time of year that makes you want to pull out an apron, crank up the oven and fill your senses with baking aroma? Don't know the answer to that but it has happened to me... does every year!!
I am making Double-Chocolate Cookies!! I mean, what is better than chocolate and then to have it doubled!! Hoop-de-do!
It's easy-peasy, too. The recipe is below.
and here is the finished product...
I am surprised there are any left on the plate! I do love chocolate!
To tell you the truth, I haven't decorated for Christmas yet. I don't believe in doing that until Thanksgiving is over. I mean, let the turkey have his day! The photo is from last year. Yes, I made them then, too.
1 devils food cake mix (with pudding) 1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup (6 oz) semisweet chocolate morsels 2 eggs
Combine the cake mix, veggie oil and eggs. Beat a medium speed until blended. Stir in the chocolate morsels. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2" apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes. Remove cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar.
Makes 3 dozen.
