Easy chocolate fudge cookies

By | January 31, 2013


Did I tell you about my sprinkles? I have moon-shaped sprinkles, and star sprinkles, and dino sprinkles. And dolphins! And bears! And COWS.

Any cookie would be immensely improved with these ridiculous creations. Even if it didn’t taste like anything special, people would go crazy just over the decorations. But when the cookie is a moist mouthful of chocolate, you’ll be getting compliments for weeks afterward.

I know I did.


I chose this basic chocolate cookie recipe for our baby’s bris, intending to top them with whatever beautiful sprinkle things my mother brought along in her suitcase. As my (adapted) test batch quickly disappeared, I knew I had a winner. Plus, I got away with reducing the butter, sugar, and chocolate chips. So these are practically healthy.

And since they’re also really easy to throw together, it was the perfect project for someone in her 38th week. Because what else do you think I was doing in the days before my due date?


The bris batch and a half were topped with bright blue sugar and baby blue sugar pearls, so I saved the dinos and friends for something else.

That something else came three weeks after the bris, when a friend of mine on the yishuv made a bris of her own. I’m not gonna lie, it was hard to bake with a tiny baby underfoot. But my friend is 40, it’s her second baby, and the bris was a big deal. And since I had an easy cookie recipe and some killer sprinkles…


They were a hit, of course, just like they will be when you make them. You probably have your butter out of the fridge already.


If you need some dinos, though, you’ll have to find another source. I’m not sharing.

These look amazing! Is there anywhere you can get these sprinkle dino (or other) toppings in Israel? Or did you bring them from America?

These are from America, but there’s a specialty bake shop in Talpiyot (and other places, probably) that sells fancier sprinkles than what you’ll find in a regular grocery here.

A couple years ago I saw a Wilton store on Canfei Nesharim underneath, near Cafe Cafe. Haven’t been there in a while but it may be worth checking into.
