  • Oven



  • In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer set to medium speed to cream together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until fluffy, smooth, and creamy.
  • Add the eggs, vanilla extract, and food coloring and continue to mix until incorporated.
  • In a separate mixing bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
    Add flour mixture to the butter mixture and continue to mix on medium speed until thoroughly combined.
  • Cover the mixture with cling wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Add the granulated sugar to a small bowl and the powdered sugar to another separate small bowl.
  • Scoop 2 tablespoon-sized balls of the cookie dough mixture and roll into a ball.
  • Roll the balls in the granulated sugar and then in the powdered sugar.
  • Place the coated cookie dough balls onto the prepared baking sheet.
    Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until cookies have puffed and cracked, but are still a little bit gooey inside.
  • Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack.
  • Let cool completely. Serve.
