Chocolate Snowflake Cookies

3 Jan

We’re not sure where this recipe originated because its been in our mom’s cookbook for as long as we can remember. These chocolate snowflake cookies are our favorite Christmas cookies and we always look forward to making them the day before Christmas Eve with our mom.

Chocolate Snowflake Cookies {Yields 8 dozen}


2 cups sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar


1. Combine the first 3 ingredients in a large mixing bowl; beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Add the eggs and vanilla,mixing well.

2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder,and salt. Add about one-fourth of the dry mixture at a time to the chocolate mixture, mixing after each addition. Cover and chill dough for at least 2 hours in the fridge.

3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls, and roll in powdered sugar.

4. Place cookies 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cool on wire racks.

Although these are our favorite holiday cookie, you can make them all winter. They are the perfect treat to pair with your hot cocoa as you’re snuggled up trying to keep warm during the next few cold months.
