i'm kind of glad the olympics are over.
it's such an emotional journey for me.
i get so wrapped up in the spirit of it all!
i love the stories of the olympians and how far
they've come to accomplish their life long dream.
i love seeing them on the podium, hearing their national anthem.
i cry during every single event!
now at least i can just go back to making cookies,
drinking wine, and watching gossip girl in the evenings :)
recipe via the curvy carrot
2/3 cup salted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1.5 cups chocolate or multicolor sprinkles
1 package hershey kisses
(this recipe made about 22 cookies)
1. preheat oven to 375 degrees.
line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
2. in a large mixing bowl, beat butter on medium-high speed for 30 seconds.
add sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
beat until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally.
beat in egg and vanilla until combined.
beat in the flour.
3. your dough should be at ball-rolling consistency at this point.
if it’s not, let it chill in the refrigerator for a while to firm up a little.
once easily handled, roll dough into 1-inch balls.
roll balls in sprinkles to coat.
4. place balls 2 inches apart on your lined cookie sheets,
and using your thumb make an indentation in the center of each cookie.
5. bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are firm.
immediately press a chocolate kiss into each cookie’s center.
transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
and feel free to change up the sprinkles... :)
