Chocolate Bubble Cookies

This cookie was a mistake. I was attempting to make a chocolate lace cookie, but they came out like a little chocolate brownie (not even close to a lace cookie.) So I rolled them in sugar and made them into little bursts of chocolate. In my book, that's called success! Who wouldn't like a little round bubble of brownie?

So it wasn't what I intended to create- but these little brownies bites are fabulous . They can be easily overcooked so you need to watch them closely; otherwise you'll have a dry brownie on your hands. If that happens, you can always freeze these and make them into chocolate bread pudding (adaption in the face of error is what makes a someone good in the kitchen.)

It's a pretty quick mix up, but the rolling in sugar takes an extra step. Don't let that stop you- these are worth the trouble of rolling or just add some sugar in a bowl and toss them rather than roll.

As my motto goes - eat your mistakes and be fat and happy!

Chocolate Bubble Cookies
1/2 stick+ 1 tbl butter
add 6 Tbls cocoa

add 2 Tbls cream
add 1 egg

Mix in
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sugar (+ some for rolling)
3/4 cups flour

Use your smallest cookie scoop. Drop onto a plate of sugar, roll around so the round cookie is covered in sugar and place on lightly greased cookie sheet pan.
Bake (375 degrees) for about 8 to 12 minutes; I found that taking them out just before they get a hard shell to them was best. I do suggest trying a pan with just one or two first to find the right baking time for your oven so these don't get overcooked and dried out.
