I got my inspiration for these chocolate confetti cookies from Deb at Smitten Kitchen. To be honest, I have been "smitten" with Deb's recipes and blog for a long time. Her confetti cookies rank right up there in my top five for favorite cookies.
A few months ago it dawned on me that my blog was a bit lacking on the chocolate recipes. It also dawned on me that all my cookie recipes require some chill time. So I decided to change that.
HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE CONFETTI COOKIES
A food processor is your best friend for these cookies. You will use cold butter and cold cream cheese and the food processor blends these ingredients with ease. We've had our Cuisinart for 20+ years and it still performs like a champion!
Start by combining the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse to combine.
Then add the cold butter, cream cheese and granulated sugar and pulse until the mixture becomes sandy in texture.
Next add the eggs and vanilla and blend until the dough comes together.
Then roll the dough into 1 ½ inch balls and roll in sprinkles. I use a cookie scoop, like this one, to get the dough into uniform sized balls. Place the dough ball onto a prepared baking sheet, spacing 1-2 inches apart and flatten the cookie dough to ¼ - ½ inch tall. I typically use a silicone baking mat with cookies, but also have great results with parchment paper.
Finally, bake the cookies for 9-10 minutes. They will look slightly under baked. Allow the cookies to rest on the pan for 2 minutes and then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
It's as easy as that.
30 minutes or less and you'll be biting into a soft, chocolatey, sprinkle-filled cookie and wondering where these chocolate confetti cookies have been all your life.
The third time I made this recipe, Big E was sampling a freshly baked cookie and I asked her if this cookie was worth sharing. She completely stopped what she was doing, turned and looked me directly in the eye and stated, "these cookies are DEFINITELY share-worthy"!! I think you'll agree.😊
