How to make Chocolate Christmas Sprinkle Cookies:
Step one: Whisked together dry ingredients then set aside.
Step two: Beat softened butter with melted chocolate, sugar, and brown sugar. I used my stand mixer for this but you could also use a large bowl with an electric mixer.
Step three: Add egg, vanilla extract, and milk to the mixer and once mixed in well add in dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
Step four: Place dough in the fridge and allow to chill for at least 2 hours. Chilling is a must.
Step five: Once your cookies have been chilled you can preheat your oven and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper
Step six: Place sprinkles on a plate. Scoop out 1 1/2 tbsp of dough and place in the sprinkles. Roll the dough until completely covered in sprinkles. Place sprinkle covered cookie onto your prepared baking sheet and bake.
For this recipe chilling the cookies is a must. To make these cookies really soft and gooey I add melted chocolate right into the dough. This will make your cookies perfect but hard to handle without chilling. Once everything is mixed you can cover them and chill for at least 2 hours but you could chill them overnight also. If properly stored this dough will be good for 2-3 days in the fridge. If you are chilling for more then 2 hours you might want to let them sit on the counter for 15 minutes so they are easier to scoop.
