36 cookies

  • Cookies:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons espresso powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Glaze:
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.

  • In a large bowl, add the butter and sugar and cream together, using an electric mixer, until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla, then slowly add the dry ingredients. Form the dough into a long 2-inch thick log on parchment paper and roll tightly. Freeze for at least 4 hours to overnight.

  • Arrange racks in the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Slice the dough into 1/4-inch rounds and arrange them on a parchment lined baking sheet, about 1-inch apart. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then remove to a wire rack. Let cool completely before glazing.

  • Glaze:

  • Melt the chocolate and butter in a small glass bowl over a pot of simmering water. Whisk together until smooth and glossy. Remove from the heat and whisk in corn syrup and vanilla extract until smooth.

  • Dip the cooled cookies into the glaze and remove, with a fork, to a wire rack set over a sheet tray. Allow the cookies to set for 40 minutes before serving.

Must love the Neelys yummy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is delicious and very moist and easy to make. But be careful if you don't like rich things. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Had great success with these! For those who like a less messy chocolate covering, melt a little parafin and add it to the chocolate glaze. This will cause the glaze to harden slightly, but still remains soft, which the cookie needs item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have not tried these cookies yet, but they look delicious! My husband & I appreciate you both. I wanted to say something positive. We like how this couple is so sweet & how they work together. They both bring so much energy & professionalism to foodnetwork. I have save these cookies in my recipe box. Let us build up others & not tear them down. We all need prayer. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made the cookies for my family. Making the dough does take about 15 minutes, but then rolling the dough to get it ready to freeze is a pain. The cookies are dry and a bit powdery when you eat them. The chocolate dip is only for those who really like bittersweet chocolate. My family didn't go for it. The cookies are very messy to eat because the dip never truly hardens. I won't be making them again. I can't find anyone to eat the leftovers!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love the recipe. And soldiers off to war is from an old nursery story...Mu husband is a r4etired militaryman and saw plenty of action. We are neither one horrified or upset in any way by Gina. Get real was harmless. I've heard my own grandmother tell me to line the cookies up like good little soldiers marching off to war. I loved her and her cookies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
