Chocolate tallbreads

I promised the chocolate tall breads recipe today and here it is.  It is actually pretty addictive if you use bittersweet chocolate!

Chocolate tallbread

1 cup butter

4 ounces melted chocolate (if bittersweet, add 1/2 cup more sugar)

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups flour

Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.


Put the butter, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl.  Cream together.  Mix in the flour.


Take a teaspoon of dough roll it in a ball and dredge it in sugar.  Put on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper or a silpat.

Bake for 20 minutes.  This is why the temperature is at 325.  I am underbaking a bit.


I have made these with bitter sweet and semi sweet chocolate.  NO cocoa powder.  I just do not like how it tastes.  I have to admit that I prefer the bittersweet chocolate ones, probably even more then the plain.
