  • In a microwave or double broiler, melt unsweetened chocolate, 1 cup (6 oz.) chocolate chips, and butter; cool for 10 minutes.

  • Combine dry ingredients (except confectioners sugar); beat into chocolate mixture.
  • Stir in remaining chocolate chips.
  • Cover and chill for at least 3 hours.
  • Remove 1 cup of dough. With lightly floured hands, roll into 1" balls. Place on ungreased baking sheets.

  • Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Dust with confectioners sugar.

    I took these to church tonight. They were gone really fast. Someone told me they were delicious. I wished they made more in the batch. I will definetly double the recipe next time.

    I used bittersweet chips instead and added liquer. I recommend chilling - I couldn't get them out of the muffin tin and the texture is much better after chilled.

    I thought these were OK - but not great. I got a resounding 'so-so' by all of my 'guinea pigs'.

    I'll definitely make these again. They're delicious and they sold well at our church bake sale. I left off the confectioner's sugar because I felt they were sweet enough and I was too lazy to deal with the mess of powdered sugar ;-) I used the first method with the 3-hour chill time. I may try the muffin tin method next time.


I grew up in Dallas, TX, and lived in Summerville, SC, a town right outside of Charleston, for a while. I am now living back in TX, in Hallsville, right outside of Longview. I am a strong Christian and I love the LORD with all of my heart. I sing and play the piano, and I love cooking and baking.
