1/2 tsp
salt
4 oz
unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup(s)

3 tblsp

Directions 11 steps | 30 Minutes

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper. Measure and prep all ingredients.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.

Step 3

In a bowl of a standing mixer with the paddle attachment or a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar together on medium speed until light and fluffy.

Step 4

Add the cooled dark chocolate and mix until well combined.

Step 5

Add the eggs, one at a time and mix until well combined.

Step 6

On low speed, add the buttermilk and red food coloring and mix until well combined.

Step 7

Add the flour mixture and mix just until combined.

Step 8

Place the powdered sugar into a separate bowl. Use a cookie scoop to portion one tablespoon of cookie dough and roll it into a ball. Roll the cookie dough into the powdered sugar and place it on the prepared cookie sheet at least one inch apart. Repeat with the remaining dough.

Step 9

Re-roll all of the cookie dough in the powdered sugar and bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are puffy and have a crackled appearance.

Step 10

Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Step 11

Enjoy!
