Chocolate Sprinkle cookies

The kids have waited patiently all week for this recipe. It's been written up on our menu planning wall for over a week, and I started to make them last weekend before I discovered that I didn't have any cocoa (on a public holiday Monday, so I couldn't even send Steve to the shops for me!)

These are such fun to eat! Every little sprinkle gets in your teeth, and adds a bit of crunch to tasteful chocolate cookie. The kids have eaten a couple today, and have tried to convince me to let them eat more. I don't expect any to be left by Monday.

250g butter, softened
1 & 1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup cocoa
2 cups self raising flour
sprinkle to dredge

* cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy
* add eggs one at a time, mix well
* mix in vanilla
* add sifted flour and cocoa, mix well
* refrigerate at least 1 hour
* roll into balls with damp hands, roll in sprinkles
* bake 180° for 12-14min
* allow to cool slightly before moving to wire rack



  1. Of course they enjoyed them - they are so FUN to just look out!

  2. Your blog is just like a delicious cookie cookery book at the moment! These sound amazing, I bet they didn't last long!

  3. These are sooo pretty! As soon as fall arrives (I mean it's October but it's 95° - THAT'S not fall!) I want to make these!

  4. My 11 year old made these on sunday and we ran out of sprinkles - but YIAH to the rescue so we used - Chocolate Raspberry Truffle powder instead.
