‘Twilight’ Vampire Sparkle Chip Cookies

The sparkly sugar on these dark and brooding chocolate cookies led Sarina’s friend to call them “Twilight” cookies after the vampire movies. This sugar crust gives a nice crisp outside texture but leaves that hint of a soft cookie still so both cookie lovers are satisfied.

Submitted by Sarina F.

2 cups flour
¼ cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 cup butter (very soft)
4 tablespoon instant coffee grounds
¾ cup sugar
¾ cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp vanilla
½ tsp butter flavoring
Pack of semi sweet chocolate chips (can be swapped with white chocolate chips if desired)
1 cup walnut pieces (can be omitted for allergies)

Sugar for rolling on the sparkle (regular white table sugar, not baking quality, you want coarser grains, can even use raw sugar)

1. Preheat the oven to 350 and pour about a cup of sugar into a pie dish.

2. Mix dry ingredients together first to one bowl (except coffee, chips and nuts). In a separate bowl mix butter and coffee, then add in sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, butter flavoring, & egg and cream it together. Now add the dry mix to the wet mix and mix till dough is even. Add the chocolate chips and walnuts last with a final mix.

3. When you are ready to bake the cookies you scoop the dough with a cookie scoop if you have one for less mess (about the size of a melon baller) then roll the cookie scooped ball into the pie pan of sugar so it sticks to the outside of the cookie ball. Place the “vampire-ised” cookie on a cookie sheet lined with parchment.

4. Bake at 350 for 11-13 min. Let them semi-cool on the parchment before transferring to a cooling rack.
