Cocoa Balls

Make these with the kids.

2 sticks softened butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract or 2 1/2 tsp. vanilla; 1/2 tsp. almond
1/4 cup chopped almonds or nut(s) of your choice
12 ounces chocolate chips
2 cups flour
2+ cups confectioners’ sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl cream together the butter and sugars until fluffy. Beat in the vanilla. With a wooden spoon, stir in the almonds and chips. Add the flour, then with your hands, knead the dough until the flour is incorporated. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on ungreased (or parchment lined) cookie sheets.

Bake for 15 minutes. Cool them on the baking sheets for about 5 minutes. Put the 2 cups of confectioners’ sugar in a bowl or pie plate. Remove cookies from baking sheets then roll in confectioners’ sugar. Cool completely.
