  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup chopped chocolate melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar


  1. In a large bowl, mix the cocoa powder, white sugar, brown sugar, melted chocolate, and vegetable oil.
  2. Next, add in eggs one at a time, and beat until fully combined.
  3. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. In another medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Add the dry ingredients into the wet chocolate mixture and beat just until a dough forms. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  6. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  7. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  8. Add the confectioner's sugar to a smaller bowl.
  9. Roll about 1 1/2 - 2 tablespoons of dough into a ball.
  10. Generously roll each dough ball in confectioners' sugar to coat evenly and place onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes (for smaller cookies) or 12 minutes (for larger cookies).
  12. The cookies will be a bit soft when they come out of the oven but will harden up once they cool completely.
  13. Cool on wire racks for 10-15 minutes and serve.
