The holiday season is the perfect time to bake cookies. And what better than the marvellous goodness of chocolate in these just baked cookies. The chocolate icing makes it extra special and rich. They are sure to disappear fast and you will find you have never been more popular!


This recipe makes about 24 cookies. This recipe is from Famous Brands Chocolate Classics.


PREP: 10 minutes COOK TIME: 20-30 minutes


2/3 cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

21/2 cups flour

½ cup cocoa

½ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp salt

Chopped nuts

Chocolate Glaze

2 tbsp butter

2 tbsp water

3 tbsp cocoa

1 cup icing sugar

½ tsp vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 180C. Line a couple of baking trays with parchment paper.

Cream the butter and sugar in a large mixer bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; blend well. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture, blending thoroughly. Shape heaping teaspoonfuls of dough into 3×1 inch fingers. Place on the prepared cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes until set but not hard. Cool slightly and remove to a wire rack.

To make the glaze, combine the butter and water in a small pan. Bring to boil and remove from heat. Add the cocoa immediately and stir until well blended. Add the icing sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth.

Glaze the cookies with the chocolate glaze and sprinkle the nuts on top.

A Hint Of Spice

Hi. I am Padma and I am passionate about delicious food. Food is amazing in that it can take you to another place and time in your life just by the taste, smell and touch. Even a photograph evokes memories that lie dormant within us. I still remember a coconut candy that I used to eat as a child. Even though it’s not available now, I clearly remember the taste. It takes me back to my childhood pleasures as nothing else can. Being Indian, my palate is so used to spices. I started experimenting by mixing spices with European and other Western cuisines. The result is truly delicious. I love trying out different spices with different recipes. Sometimes I use the powder and sometimes I grind the spices with other herbs, onions, etc in the blender. The result is quite spectacular – a lovely fusion of the East and West. I hope you like my recipes and are inspired enough to try out a few of them. I would love to hear back from you.
