Linda was over the other night, and I was making dinner -- while I was cooking I threw my pile of cookbooks at her, and told her to 'look for a dessert recipe that didn't involve powdered sugar' as I didn't have any. After much reading (because it turned out I didn't have several other things too)
We came across this recipe for chocolate Rocks
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup chopped raisins
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips (i cheated and used full size)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
preheat oven to 375. Grease two cookie sheets, set aside in a large mixing bown, cream butter and sugar until light. Add egg and vanilla extract, beat until well blended. On a sheet of wax paper, combine cocoa, flour, salt and baking soda. sir into creamed mixture to form a soft dough (I threw it all in the kitchen aid) stir in raisins, chocolate chips and pecans (again kitchen aid) spoon 1/4 teaspoon (Yea RIGHT.. I used a teaspoon...) of dough 1 inch apart onto cookie sheets and bake 6-7 mins (9-11 for the size I made) cool on wire rack (what rack is that skinny? mine barely fit) makes about 120 (makes about 45)
Chief Commentator: Good, little candy like cookies. Raisns add a nice surprising touch when eatting.
Uber easy to make. tastey, and kinda like eating one of those chunky bars from when we were kids with the chocolate and raisins together.
