Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt margarine.
  3. Stir in cocoa, remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  4. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, 1 cup white sugar and brown sugar until fluffy.
  5. Beat in the eggs, then stir in the cocoa mixture and the vanilla.
  6. Blend in the sifted ingredients to form a soft dough.
  7. Cover dough and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
  8. Preheat oven to 350°.
  9. Roll chilled dough into walnut-sized balls.
  10. Roll them into the sugar crystals and place them 2 to 3-inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  11. Bake for 8-10 minutes in the preheated oven.
  12. Take the cookies out of the oven once they look like they are starting to set.
  13. The key to making these cookies great is to not overbake them.
  14. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  15. Tip: Although I haven't made these cookies by rolling them in granulated sugar instead of sugar crystals, I don't see why that can't be done.
  16. If you don't have the crystals, go ahead and give rolling the cookies in granulated sugar a try!
