These are a favorite in our house and so yummy! My daughter loves to make these when she needs a treat for school. Her friends beg her to make them. I got the recipe out of a magazine years ago. I think probably from Family Circle or Woman's Day.
1 cup granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, melted and cooled
2 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
In large bowl, stir granulated sugar, butter, vanilla extract and chocolate with spoon until blended. Stir in eggs one at a time. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Cover and refrigerate for at least three hours.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat baking sheets with nonstick spray. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls into confectioners' sugar; roll around to coat. Shape into balls. Place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when touched. Immediately remove from baking sheet to wire rack; cool.
