Chocolate Bonbon Cookies are an easy cookie with a simple decoration that can be adapted to any holiday or occasion. Change the extract for different flavors, add nuts (or go nut-free), change up the sprinkles to suit your mood and more.
4cupsBasic Cookie Mixrecipe below
2ouncesunsweetened chocolatemelted and cooled
scant ¼teaspooninstant espresso powderoptional - see note below
sprinkles, colored sugar, etc.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
In a mixing bowl combine Cookie Mix, nuts, chocolate, butter, chocolate, eggs and extracts to form a soft dough.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place about 1 inch apart on a baking sheet.
Bake at 375°F until cookies are set, about 10 minutes. Cool slightly before moving to a wire cooling rack.
While cookies are cooling combine powdered sugar, almond extract and enough milk to make icing to your desired consistency.
When cookies are cool, spread icing on top and decorate with sprinkles. Store in airtight container once icing is set.
The small amount of espresso powder boosts the flavor of the chocolate, but you do not taste the coffee.
