Serves 48people
Ingredients
3
cups flour
4
baking powder
3/4
cup white sugar
1/4
cup cocoa
1
cup butter, softened
1/3
cup milk
1
tsp vanilla extract
1/2
cup chopped nuts
1
oz squares unsweetened chocolate
1
tbsp butter, softened
1
tsp vanilla extract
2
cups confectioner's (powdered) sugar
1/4
cup hot milk
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2.
Sift 3 cups flour twice. In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, white sugar and cocoa. Cream 1 cup butter; blend into flour mixture. Add 1/3 cup mile, 1 teaspoon vanilla and nuts. Mix thoroughly with hands until well blended. (Dough should be the consistency of pie crust, but not sticky.)
3.
For each cookie, pinch off about 1 teaspoon dough. Roll by hands into balls, each about one-inch in diameter. Place on greased baking sheets. Do not flatten. Bake about 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheets; cool on racks. When cool, drizzle each generously with chocolate frosting.
4.
To make Chocolate Frosting: Melt the chocolate squares over low heat. Cream with 1 tablespoon of butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 2 cups of confectioner's sugar. Gradually add hot mil, beating until smooth. Makes 4 dozen.
