  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles plus extra for decorating
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicone baking mat. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla until well blended.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until a dough forms. Fold in sprinkles until well distributed.
  3. Shape into 12 equal sized balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle each ball with a few extra sprinkles for a nicer presentation. If your dough is fairly soft, I would recommend chilling it at this point for about 30 minutes. If your dough is thick (like mine was), bake in the preheated oven for exactly 8 minutes.
  4. Remove and let cool 5-10 minutes on the baking sheet before removing to a cooling rack. The cookies will look very soft and undercooked when you pull them out, but they will cook more as they cool on the pan.
