Chocolate Cookies with a Delicious Twist


2 cups granulated sugar
¾ cup vegetable oil
¾ cup cocoa powder
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/3 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
Powdered sugar
Chocolate chips (optional for extra sweetness)

In a large bowl, mix granulated sugar and vegetable oil.  Then add cocoa and mix until well blended.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.  

In a separate bowl stir together flour, baking powder and salt.  Then gradually add cocoa mixture; beating well. 

Cover and refrigerate until dough is firm enough to mold; at least 6 hours

Heat oven to 350°.  

Lightly grease cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.

Shape dough into 1-in round balls then roll then in powdered sugar to coat. Place about 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes or until the tops are slightly crackled. Remove from oven and let stand on cookie sheet for 2 minutes then move to cooling rack.  Let cool completely and enjoy!

Tips: the chocolate chips are a great addition if you like your cookies extra sweet.  That being said this addition may be too sweet for some.
