Chocolate Surprise Sugar Cookies {Recipe}


So, it took me forever to share this recipe with you. It was all because of the title. The recipe is perfect, it is the title that is hard. When you write sugar cookie, it sounds bland. I needed to get in surprise (because man oh man is there a surprise) and explosion (because holy heaven that explodes in your mouth). After reworking the name numerous times, I finally settled on Chocolate Surprise Sugar Cookies! And it STILL doesn’t describe the deliciousness of what you are about to try!

Here’s how the recipe goes down:

Remember that Chocolate Buttercream Icing that I posted last week? It all starts there. I made a batch of the icing first, rolled it into little balls and froze them separately on a cookie sheet.

Then I whipped up the sugar cookie dough (recipe below).


I placed a butter cream icing ball into each sugar cookie and baked until done.


Let those cookies explode!
