Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • melting chocolate (like Baker's Dipping Chocolate)
  • sprinkles or additional chips, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Prepare the cookie dough: In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the butter, sugars and salt. Mix in 2 tablespoons of milk or cream and vanilla extract. Sift in the flour and cocoa powder and mix until well-combined. If the mixture seems dry, add up to 1 tablespoon of additional milk or cream, until the dough comes together nicely in clumps. Stir in the chocolate chips. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours, or until the dough is very firm.
  2. Roll the cookie dough: Using a tablespoon (and clean hands), scoop out spoonfuls of the firmed-up cookie dough and roll it into 1-inch or so balls. Place them on a waxed-paper-lined baking sheet. Roll all of the cookie dough balls and then place the baking sheet of balls into the refrigerator to firm them up again (at least 15 to 20 minutes).
  3. Melt the chocolate for dipping. Take about 10 cookie dough balls out of the refrigerator at a time. Set a cookie dough ball on top of a fork, dip, shake off the excess and then gently place onto a wax-paper-lined platter or baking sheet. Sprinkle immediately with decor (sprinkles or mini chips). Repeat with remaining cookie dough balls. And then take 10 more out of the fridge and repeat until you've dipped them all. Refrigerate to set, or let sit at room temperature until the chocolate has set. These do not need to be refrigerated, but they certainly can be. Store them in a covered container.
