Author Longbourn Farm • Alli Kelley


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips melted
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar


  • Sift flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder together, set aside.
  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips in the microwave in increments of 15 seconds, stirring between each increment, for about 45 seconds total. Set aside to cool.
  • In a large bowl, combine sugar, oil, eggs, vanilla extract and the cooled melted chocolate. Mix well.
  • Fold in sifted dry ingredients from step 1 until just combined, being sure to scrape down the bowl as you go.
  • Portion dough into rounded tablespoons.
  • Roll dough portions in powdered sugar.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.


The powdered sugar on the outside of the cookies will start to melt if they are kept for too long. I recommend making these no more than a day ahead of when you need them if they are for a party or event.
