What is Chocolate Blossoms Recipe?

Chocolate Blossoms has been a cookie recipe in our families for many years. It is a delicious and simple cookie recipe that requires a lot of time to dip.

So I like to make all the balls and freeze them later. Then when you are ready to serve your guest, go ahead and bake them at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, depending on how crunchy you like them.

How To make Chocolate Blossoms Recipe?

Chocolate Blossoms Recipe is easier to make than you think. It is a very simple cookie recipe, and all ingredients can be found easily in any store.

Ingredients

You need:

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour— 2/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1 tbsp of instant dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup of softened unsalted butter2- 3 cups of confectioner’s sugar
  • 4 cups of powdered sugar, sifted
  • 2 cups of confectioner’s sugar and 1 tbsp.
  • baking cocoa powder, sifted6-8 oz of cream cheese (softened)
  • 3 tbsp of heavy whipping cream
  • 3-4 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa paste

Directions

Step 1.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, and salt. Stir the butter into the flour mixture using a fork or a pastry blender.

Step 2.

Add egg and yeast to the flour mixture and knead until smooth (if you don’t have a stand mixer to knead, use your hands). Cover with plastic film and let rise for 1 hour at in-room temperature.

Step 3.

Punch down the dough and let it rise for 1 hour.

Step 4.

Roll out your dough onto a floured work surface and cut out your cookies using small cookie cutters or a scoop to make balls (I like the scoop better than cutting them because they all come out the same size). 

Place the cookies on an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely before icing.

Step 5.

For the icing, combine softened butter, cream cheese, and heavy cream in a medium bowl. Add powdered sugar gradually and mix until well blended. Add cocoa powder and stir until you get the desired color with not too much of a chocolate taste (since this is white icing)

Step 6.

Dip your cookies into the icing, then place them on a wire rack to allow excess icing to drip off.

Step 7.

Chocolate Blossoms Recipe is now complete!
