Description

Although you might find this hard to believe, candy does not get eaten in my house. We constantly have a stash of leftover chocolate bars from the holidays. A great way to use up the wonderful chocolate bars is to bake with them! I have made everything from chocolate crossants to ganache with my leftover candy. Today I wanted something small and SINFUL! The result is an airy cookie with a molten center.

Ingredients

  • 1 stick Margarine
  • ¼ cups Sugar
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar
  • 1-¼ cup All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ cups Cocoa Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1  Egg
  • ¾ cups High Quality Chocolate Bar, Chopped
  • ¼ cups Powdered Sugar, For Rolling

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the margarine, sugar, and brown sugar until creamy. This should take about 3 minutes. You want them to incorporate well.
2. While the sugar is mixing, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.
3. Add the egg to the margarine and sugar mixture. Combine well. Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
4. Slowly mix the flour mixture into the wet, making sure to thoroughly combine before the next addition.
5. On a chopping board, carefully chop your choice of chocolate. I used a Belgian dark chocolate bar with almonds. You can use any high quality chocolate of your choice.
6. Stir the chocolate chunks into into the batter. This will take some muscle!
7. Arrange an assembly line with your batter, then a bowl with powdered sugar and then an un-greased cookie sheet. Pinch off the dough and using your hands, roll into 1.5″ diameter balls. Roll the chocolate balls into the powdered sugar and then roll again in your hand to dust off excess. Place on your cookie sheet, allowing at least an inch of space around each cookie.
8. Bake in a preheated 350 F oven for 10 minutes.
9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 3-4 minutes before removing cookies from pan.
