Dusted Triple Chocolate Drop Cookies


I found these fabulous
Cookie Envelopes
from Wilton
and had to whip up a batch of cookies
to give away in them.

I found them at JoAnn Fabrics and they come in
all sorts of styles.  They make a simple cookie 
a beautiful gift.


I first had these fun and easy cookies when my 
daughter's sister in law made them for us.
She wrapped the cookie dough around a Rolo
candy.  We have since experimented with them
with Mini Snickers and Mini Milky Way Bars.
They are so easy and good.

Dusted Triple Chocolate Drop Cookies

1 box Betty Crocker Triple Chocolate Cake Mix
1/2 C. butter, almost melted
1 egg
Mini Rolos (optional)
Powdered sugar

Mix the cake mix, butter and egg in the mixer
and beat until well blended.
You can either drop by rounded tablespoons
or take a mini Rolo or Mini Snicker, etc. and
wrap the dough around the candy.

Place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake at 350 for 7 minutes and let cool until
set on the baking sheet.  Fill a small bowl with
powdered sugar and place the cookie in,
coating all sides of the cookie.  Remove and
let finish cooling on another piece of parchment
paper.




You can have little gifts made up for friends or neighbors
in just half an hour using this easy recipe and these
fun cookie wrappers.

We made some with Rolos and some without.

Do you celebrate May Day?
We used to when we were growing up by making little
cones and filling them with cookies and hanging them on
the neighbor's doors.  These would be adorable to use
for May Day.


Enjoy!

I used to always celebrate May day by leaving flowers on friends' doors. Haven't done that since retiring, so just might need to pick up some of these to share some coolies. What a sweet idea! ~ Sarah

These are SO CUTE and the cookies are SO YUMMY! I think those little envelopes could be used for LOTS of thingys! There are so MANY clever things out there... Those also look like "Something MAYBE we can make???". I LOVE the color you got, it's perfect! BUT I know YOU'D LOVE purple envelopes with the EXACT same print, WITH your chocolate cookies. AHHH, "Purple Chocolate Home" specials!!!
I'm going to go CHECK THOSE OUT! Thank you Jackie,
Have a fun week,
Big Hugs,
Donna

The cookie envelope is adorable. It makes a little gift special - just like when my neighbor wrapped her homemade bread in a kitchen towel and tied it with a pretty ribbon. You asked about May Day. When I was a child, we filled little homemade May baskets with candy, popcorn, and violets. We placed it on the doorstep, rung the doorbell, and ran. If caught, you would get kissed! It was fun at the time!
Blessings to you and your family!

Cookie envelopes? Why on earth didn't I think of that? So lovely, J. Come see my new website, it's finally up. xx's

Those cookie envelopes are so clever and do elevate the cookie to a very special gift. When we were little we gathered wildflowers and put them in glass jars or just tied them with ribbon, put them on a door or doorknob, and RAN! I think of it every May Day. Linda

It's been awhile since I've pulled out my Cricut Expression, but I think that one of my cartridges has that template. If not, I'm on my way to JoAnn's. Great idea for party favors! Thanks for the recipe, too. Cherry Kay

What a great idea, Jacqueline. These little cookie presents would be wonderful treat for my mother's friends. She lives in an assisted living community and a little sweet is always so welcomed by them. I always know I will find something special when I come to visit. Thanks.
