I promised the chocolate tall breads recipe today and here it is. It is actually pretty addictive if you use bittersweet chocolate!
1 cup butter
4 ounces melted chocolate (if bittersweet, add 1/2 cup more sugar)
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Put the butter, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl. Cream together. Mix in the flour.
Take a teaspoon of dough roll it in a ball and dredge it in sugar. Put on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper or a silpat.
Bake for 20 minutes. This is why the temperature is at 325. I am underbaking a bit.
I have made these with bitter sweet and semi sweet chocolate. NO cocoa powder. I just do not like how it tastes. I have to admit that I prefer the bittersweet chocolate ones, probably even more then the plain.
