There is so much comfort to be had in enjoying a simple cookie, don’t you think?  And if that cookie happens to be chocolate….well….it puts a huge smile on my face!  This chocolate cookie recipe is incredibly easy to make and tastes delicious.

It was my daughter’s second birthday recently and I wanted to make some no fail cookies for her party.  I have used this recipe so many times and it is always a winner.

For her first birthday I made these cookies into butterfly party favors but this year I decided to go simply with a ….number 2 cookie!

Chocolate Cookie Recipe

These cookies were a hit with both the adults and the children, so as far as a successful chocolate cookie recipe goes….this one is it!

They are so incredibly easy to make and I have the recipe here for you.

To start simply mix the cocoa powder, flour and baking powder together in a bowl.


Beat the softened butter and sugar together, then mix in the egg.


Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix together to form a dough.


Separate the dough into two or three piles and flatten it.  Wrap each piece of dough in cling warp and place in the fridge for 2 hours.


After refrigeration, roll out the dough and cut your cookies with your desired cookie cutter.


Place the cookies on a lined baking tray and place in the oven for 8 minutes.


The chocolate cookie recipe is that simple.  All you need to do now is make a cup of tea and enjoy!!!

Here is the recipe for you to print and use over and over again….and trust me…you will!
