Ultimate Earthquake Cookies
Author: Kelly - Simple Life Mom
  • 1¼ cup brown sugar*
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 tsp homemade vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour (I used half wheat, half white)
  • 6 Tbsp cocoa
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ⅔ cup chocolate chips
Roll In:
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup confectioner's sugar
  1. Combine first set of ingredients until a nice little ball forms.
  2. Chill until stiff enough to mold into balls.
  3. Shape into 1-2 inch balls. Roll in sugar and then in confectioner's sugar.
  4. Place on a stainless steel cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove to wire rack to cool so that they stop cooking and stay soft on the inside.
*I use half of the amount of brown sugar, because we do not eat sugar very often.
