Chocolate Macaroons

By Persephone

The biggest thing to remember about these cookies (other than how delicious and moist they are) is to refrigerate the dough overnight.  Don’t just pop the dough in the fridge for an hour or two thinking that will be enough.  This stuff is pretty dang sticky.

First of all, mix 1/2 cup of butter and 4 squares of chocolate in the microwave.  When this is all melted, stir and add 2 cups of sugar, 4 eggs (beaten), 2 teaspoons of baking powder, and 2 teaspoons of vanilla.  After that’s all mixed, add 2 cups of flour and stir until the dough is smooth.  Cover in airtight plastic and put in the fridge overnight.  The next day, place 1 cup of powdered sugar into a bowl.  Roll the dough into balls, then roll them into the powdered sugar.  Place on cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes.  These cookies are messy, but they taste awesome.
