Or just don’t use sprinkles and make only chocolaty flavored cookies. Make them for a birthday, after school treat, Christmas etc. Possibilities are endless.

  • I recommend using cacao powder since it will give more intense chocolate flavor.
  • Once you make a ball with the dough, flatten cookies before adding sprinkles and chocolate chunks.
  • Don’t over bake the cookies. They will be still soft once removed from oven.
  • SUBSTITUTIONS & VARIATIONS: generally cocoa powder can be used as a substitute for the cacao powder, but be aware that the flavor may vary slightly. You can substitute chocolate chips for chocolate chunks in this recipe.
