Recipe for chocolate sugar cookies with frosting and sprinkles. Sure to become a favorite!

Confession. I had never tasted a chocolate sugar cookie until I made these delectable little morsels. I didn’t even know they were a thing. Maybe they just aren’t popular here in Utah. Maybe they are, and I’m just clueless. Well, they are definitely a thing at my house now, because they are amazing!

Soft and delicious chocolate sugar cookies

I combined two of my favorite cookie recipes to come up with these. I used the chocolate base from my triple chocolate cookies, and the method for my roll and press cookies. You could of course roll out the dough and use cookie cutters, but I don’t usually have time for that! Of course if you will be using cookie cutters, you will want to chill the dough for an hour or so.

Soft and chewy chocolate sugar cookies with buttercream frosting and sprinkles. So tasty!

I love that these cookies don’t call for any fancy ingredients, and they are so simple to make. Because you are just rolling them in balls, you don’t even have to wait for the dough to chill. Just scoop, roll, dip in sugar, and bake!

  1. When looking for a great dentist, people should look for
    someone who likes his job and is excellent at it;
    the search process should not be too tough, for the majority of
    dentists market their services on the Web and post a CV where people can discover detailed details about their research studies and experience in the field of
    dentistry. Besides letting your dentist know they’ve carried out an incredible job by sending out a gift, another option is normally to leave
    on the web feedback as to how great your dentist is. There are several crucial databases on which
    professionals can develop a profile and permit their clients to leave feedback in the sort of an examination of services.
