Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 oz dark chocolate, chopped
  • Sprinkles for decoration

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F. In a mixing bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla extract on medium-high speed until light and fluffy.
  • Add flour, baking powder, and cocoa powder and mix until just blended. Stir in dark chocolate chunks.
  • Scoop approx. 1 1/2 tablespoonfuls of dough and roll into a circle. Roll cookies in sprinkles and place on ungreased non-stick baking sheets. If you'd like heart shaped-cookies, press tops of cookies to flatten slightly and with a toothpick, create an indent in the middle of the top to form the middle of top of the heart. With your fingers, shape bottom of cookie into a "V" shape. Cookies will expand a bit as they bake so you may wish to overexaggerate the heart shape so cookies will be clearly shaped once they are done baking.
  • Bake 13-15 minutes, or until edges have crisped and tops are fairly firm to the touch when pressed. Let cool on baking sheets for a few minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
