It is baking season!!! Fudgy Cocoa Bites

February 10, 2017


Using cocoa powder instead of melted baking chocolate is one of the secrets baking soft cookies, another is using shortening instead of margarine or butter. If you are looking for a change from brownies, this is a great melt in-your-mouth alternative.



1 cup shortening

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons water

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup Cocoa

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder



Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake for 9 minutes

In a large bowl, combine shorthening, sugar,water, and vanilla, using an electric mixer or beating until smooth. Add eggs and mix until blended. Mix flour, cocoa, salt, and baking powder slowly into shortening mixture, using low then medium speed.

Drop by tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 9  minutes at 372 degrees.

Make about three dozen. Store in a covered container to keep the softness.
